    We should start by putting them in prison, then work our way up to harsher penalties as needed.

    White collar criminals get a slap on the wrist, if that.

    At any rate IIRC the Supreme Court has ruled that the death penalty can only be applied to murders.
    White collar criminals that kill others albeit indirectly should be treated like other criminals that caused similar damage.

    I don't condone the death penalty for anything other than the most heinous of crimes...murder, rape, etc.

    Though I'll consider supporting mandatory death penalty for anyone who commits a crime while in physical possession of a firearm...whether they use it or not.

    As an aspiring white collar criminal I'm all for the death penalty....as long as I get to pick who it's applied to. I figure that if I'm rich enough I could probably find someone stage 4 cancer person to take the hit for me as long as I promised to pay for their kids education or something.

    why would you think anyone would want the death penalty for white collar crime?

    Depends on the crime. Probably not for most white collar crimes, but if someone made an intentional decision to do something they reasonably knew would result in lots of deaths, maybe.

    i didnt look at any recent data

    i am for the death penalty, and would apply it to more than capital offences

    but based on the few threads and few things i had read recently, i was under the assumption that the needle had turned to under 50%

    glad to hear we are still in the majority, if just by a few points

    Absolutely not. You'd have a difficult time convincing me to support the death penalty for capital crimes, much less white collar crimes. Same goes for the majority of the population.
