    Are you kidding? White collar crime is not a death penalty offense.

    Define White Collar Crimes. That could be anything from embezzlement to cheating on your taxes.

    Who would you like to see put to death?

    Do they not if it can be proven?

    That would not be a white collar crime.

    If a corporate CEO decides it is better to let tainted food into the market place rather than recall the food, it is a white collar crime.

    The only thing the death penalty is used for in the U.S. is for murder. Virtually always multiple murders.

    Not if they can prove he knew and decided to let it out anyway. That would not be white collar.

    Would we let Hitler live this time around? His wer, as far as I know, all indirect killings.

    PS: As I said, though, I really do not think capital punishment a good solution.

    Other countries have executed people for war crimes. Has the US?

    And you're in Germany...you tell me, would Germany kill Hitler?

    Yes it would be. If they decide to allow someone to die for a profit incentive, then it is white collar crime no matter how much you want to pretend it isn't. White collar is not a financial crime, it is a crime with a business financial motive.
