    Death Penalty for other crimes

    Do you think the US will ever execute someone for a crime that does not involve loss of life. Such as petty theft, tax evasion, etc.

    I say yes, especially with a Republican controlled Congress and Senate. And Obama supports the death penalty so he would sign a bill like this into law. Also the US is much more conservative than it was 20 years ago. We're going backward, not forward.

    Then you'd be wrong. Public support for the death penalty has been dropping and will continue to do so.

    No, you're wrong. The Republican controlled Congress and Senate will expand the death penalty to non violent crimes. And Obama will sign it into law.

    Troll thread is obvious.

    Azgreg is right, sentiment for the death penalty is continuing to fall.

    If the US ever tried to execute people for petty misdemeanors and such then I guarantee you, everyone would rise up against the government, whether they're libertarian or socialists or liberals or conservatives.

    No they wont. Politicians don't have the stomach for it. Do you have a cite for your claim or just a desire for the state to kill people?

    The public does not make laws. Law makers do. Duh!
