    I could counter argue the same point when sending someone to prison.

    Again, I will claim it is worse for an innocent person to go to prison than die. I at least feel that way. I consider that cruel and unusual punishment for the innocent.

    No procedure is perfect, and there will seldom be an absolute right or wrong. I say we accept that mistakes happen.

    It is pretty amazing that you would claim that on someone else's behalf.

    You should really stick to yourself when making such claims. It would be worse for YOU perhaps.

    Yes, maybe I am wrong in believing so many others feel as I do.

    What do you imagine prison is like for the innocent? What if it was you? Please ponder that for a bit.

    I imagine it's not any fun at all, but there have been plenty of innocent who have fought to be released and eventually have been and I don't think they wished they would have died. The strong can survive. I don't think I would give up on fighting for my freedom and just want to give up and die.

    Besides, my reasons for being against the death penalty are not necessarily due to any kind of sympathy towards the convict, unless they truly are innocent. I don't believe that to be the case here. I'm pretty darn sure this guy is guilty with a capital G.

    Put him in gen-pop and tell Mad Dog that you'll turn your head for 15 seconds, and there's a pack of cigarettes in it for him if it's done painfully.

    To balance out some of the suggestions, I say he gets the wagging finger and 'tsk tsk' from the UN and leave it at that.

    In addition, they sue the state for millions if/when it's proven they're innocent, which of course they can't if they've been executed. New Jersey i know added a fast-track program to expunge their records and 'compensate' such people in hopes it will dissuade them from suing. They'd be better off hiring full-time professional, competent juries.

    Interesting for sure, but I don't know how I feel about professional jurors. I would have to learn a little more about that process.

    We have seven (7) here still living in the past , the dark ages....
    Revenge has no place in justice.
    Ship him to Russia, if they will have him......it will save us hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of dollars.
    Otherwise, a lifetime of slave labor in a prison.....
