    Pretty good article on the subject: Government Can
    A jury of your peers decides your fate, the government only carries it out.Personally, I wouldn't mind if the victim's family got to decide the punishment and carry it out.

    Re: Death Penalty, for or against

    I am 100% against the death penalty, because, as has already been said, it's God's place to judge when we live or die. Not some fat white judge sitting on a bench, or a bunch of bored, lonely housewives sitting on a jury.

    As far as it being more humane to put them to death as opposed to letting them rot in prison - I say let them rot. As long as their living conditions are suitable for a prisoner (food, water, no extreme temperatures, yard time, work time) I have no problem with them spending the rest of their lives behind bars.

    The man in Oklahoma was sentenced to death because he shot a 19 year old girl with a shotgun, and then buried her alive, all because she walked in on them robbing her house. He deserves punishment. Not death, but punishment.

    That being said, the court system is absolutely fallible. If there were never any wrongly incarcerated prisoners, there'd be no need for The Innocence Project - Home. That, and the fact that I am not God, is why I am against the death penalty - for any reason.

    How about a self-administered .357 magnum. That way it's only your fault if you screw up.

    That's pathetically self centered and without an understanding of what justifies the existence of society itself.

    What is "pathetically self centered" about it?

    What "what justifies the existence of society itself"?

    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    A link to the story is below...



    So do you favor the death penalty?

    Do you think the death penalty will last in America considering the declining availability of traditional lethal injection drugs?



    Oklahoma’s horrible ‘botched execution’ shows again why the death penalty should be abolished

    Heya SW. I am against the death penalty except for extreme and some unusual case. I don't believe in the Right of the State or Government to put people to death.
