    Exactly.

    I would like to see a functioning education, healthcare, and tax system, before I'd trust my government with something like Capital Punishment.

    Sadly that isn's true. Sometimes Death is the only justice. All you that talk about Life with hard labor. What if a man is sentence to that and 70 years laters his sentence is over turn. Do you really think someone then could reenter society and be able to rebuild his life?

    It seems to me that you're assuming the justice system is going to fail, which I believe it wont 99.9 percent of the time.

    No body should be sentenced to death, because in my mind death is the easy way out. A life in captivity is true punishment.
    Haha. Panty Hawk. I would watch that show.

    Sometimes, individuals need to be taken out of the gene pool. Captivity offers a prisoner to still donate DNA - and in some cases that should not be allowed.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The purpose of hard labor is to rehabilitate criminals by making them accustomed to work. What is the purpose of making a man do hard labor if his sentence only ends with death?

    And, for that matter, what is the difference between a sentence that ends in death within 10 years and a sentence that ends in death within 30?

    I'm against it, far too often do people die who end up being innocent.

    The purpose of "hard labor" in this case is for penance or punishment for taking a life. I'm no lawyer but I meant this definition:
    Hard labor is mandated physical labor ordered in connection with a prison term imposed as punishment for a crime.
    Hard Labor Law & Legal Definition

    I don't know what you mean when you say a sentence that means death within ten years? I'm for a protracted and lengthy punishment rather than the death penalty. Kill some people and you are in your 20s? Means a whole lot of years busting rock. Real punishemnt and should you actually be innocent and the means to prove that becomes available? At least we did not kill you.

    Can I be the one to decide who gets taken out of the gene pool? It would be a lot better that way. No retards allowed. If your IQ is below 125, kill yourself.

    It's not just about the perpetrator. Some human beings show through their actions that they pose a risk to everyone else in society. Maintaining them alive requires risking the safety of other human beings, whether those humans are other inmates or the people who have to guard/feed/house them.
