    All penalties are punishment. Anyone who thinks they are a deterrent is an idiot.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I do not believe in the death penalty, it is highly discriminatory (and not just in the sense of the color of the condemned, but 2 people who have committed nearly identical crimes can be punished hugely different, one getting the death penalty and one 25 to life) in the manner of how it is given.
    the First Amendment gives everyone “the right to be very critical of a Petty, handicapped mocking, unbalanced, whiny so-called President and criticize him strongly.”

    I do not support the death penalty. However, I selected "other" because the entire American justice and penal system needs to be changed.

    I don't not support the death penalty because the US criminal justice system has more holes than a piece of swiss cheese and we get it wrong with frightening regularity.
    Unless we can get the error rate to 0% I cannot support the death penalty.

    Yes, with the insanity of bond for very minor offenses and people not being able to pay them (causing them to sit in jail until their trial where they get a sentence lower than the time they already spent behind bars) making poor people even poorer and worse off. And with the bounty hunters who do not have any rules to really follow (including breaking and entering etc). Huge prison sentences for non violent drug offenses, etc. etc. etc.

    And than we are not looking past the political efforts to deny people who have spent time in jail from voting, which is a cruel and unusual punishment.

    The death penalty is a good bargaining chip. Plea bargaining it to life without parole which requires full confession in open court (for family benefit) and negates the appeals process isn't all bad. And, of course, if they DON'T take a plea and ARE sentenced to death, they'll spend their appeal time on death row in almost solitary confinement...year after year after year.

    I'm for having the death penalty but not using it except as I've talked about above. For many of these psychopaths, the death penalty is MUCH too easy an exit.


    Thank you, Quazi!

    So you've been charged with a murder you didn't commit and are faced with two options

    1. Roll the dice on a trial, spend hundreds of thousands of dollars and face the possibility of conviction and then execution
    2. Plead guilty, live and save your family lots of grief and expense.

    Which do you choose?
