It should be supported in both principle and practice.
Yes in principle, but not in practice due to the ambiguity of social bias.

I would have less of a problem in doing away with the death penalty if the convicted murderer received a life sentence with no parole and extremely curtailed prison perks and liberties. No more of this 'my cell is my castle' crap. The incarceration rules applied to Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg and Spandau come to mind.

I am for capital punishment.
Inmate Costs - Fun FactsEvery year an inmate spends in prison costs taxpayers an average of $22,000. As prisoners get older, the cost of maintenance rises, ultimately reaching an average of $69,000 per year for those over the age of fifty-five. A study by a Stanford University professor estimated that the cost of a life term for an average California prisoner is $1.5 million.
Why do you want to pay to keep someone alive when they have absolutely no problem destroying someone else's life? Or multiple peoples' lives?
Either start a new Australia or "Put 'em down".
You advocate that the victims loved ones and honest law abiding citizens should be forced to support these scum for the rest of their lives that we should pay for their room, food, medical care, security, entertainment, libraries, rat lawyers to help them weasel out of their punishment, sex change operation and drugs(in some states) and many other things.
Geez! I wasn't aware I had these beliefs. Can you teach me more about what I advocate?

I support the principal
the reality is that it is too inefficient for this fiscal conservative
The issue at hand when delivering a sentence is not "punishment" per se, it is prevention.
Any person who commits as heinous an act as what is considered a capital offense should be locked up for life and given the bare minimum necessary for survival.
I don't care about anything else besides removing them form society.
The only reason for the death penalty is to act as retribution. Punishemnt above and beyond what is necessary is pointless.
The ONLY arguemtns in favor of the Death Penalty are emotionally based. They are more expensive, ineffective as a deterrent, and valueless for the society as a whole.
I have yet to hear a logical argument in favor of a Government killing it's own citizens that is emotionless. I would listent to such an argument. I've yet to hear it.
I don;t make any emotional argumetns against the death penalty either. Liek I said, the issue is Justice, and Justice, IMO, should be blind and it should be emotionless.
