    When God didn't stop a murderer, rapist, kidnapper or child molester from not committing their act He judged that that person deserved death.

    ...and what is with the racism and sexism?

    What about a skinny black judge sitting in a chair with a bunch of busy business men sitting on the jury?

    WRONG. There are other reasons to have the death penalty. Just because you can't fathom one does not mean it is about revenge.

    Inconsistent. You said the DP is about revenge. How does one commit revenge upon thy self?

    Re: Death Penalty, for or against

    I support the death penalty for any case where the sentence exceeds 20 years. I am not in favor of these lethal injection tests they are doing. Guillotine or bullet to the head would be my preferred methods. Quick, painless, cheap and effective.
