    So what would you say to the families......of the thousands of prison guards, correctional officers, and other inmates killed by convicted murderers during their incarceration?

    Tell them about the 100% effective rate.......

    While I doubt anyone is arguing for prison gaurds to be killed, do you have any statisitics on this?

    It is also simply a consequence to an action. An action as horrific as murder or rape deserves a consequence of equal value in order to show that we respect the life of the innocent, that we represent human life as the most important thing. By extracting the highest cost from a person, their life, we show that we respect human life as our highest value. I know that there are those out there that this will confuse, since it seems a contradiction, but it isn't.

    Re: Capital Punishment

    Argument against that we execute people who are actually innocent :

    We can establish that it is only appropriate in cases that they Guilty beyond a Shadow of Doubt.

    We can make it as a requirement that only trials preceded by a Grand Jury Trial can impose the death penalty. Make sure that the defendant's lawyer is not waiving that right without good reason.

    We can make it as a requirement that only someone who specializes in Capital Cases is the lawyer for the defendant. And not just any lawyer who is handling regular cases.

    Agree. Bleeding hearts wish to whine and cry that it is not a deterrent due to all these lame ass studies but the fact is that we have not used Capital Punishment in the way that we should be so no study in the USA world can speak about things we are not doing.

    I am pretty sure that if we started killing these monsters and sending a clear message to anybody living in the U.S.A.: if you kill someone in cold blood for no reason we can and will kill you in a speedy fashion? The lower than **** asswipes doing these things will stop and re-think their actions.

    I am also 100% sure that if we started killing these little prick assholes that rape babies and small children that these digusting monsters would re-think what they do.

    If we send a clear message that if you do this in this country you will DIE? You damn sure bet your ass it will go down. Period. Point. Blank.

    Re: Capital Punishment

    hi guys,,,
    I have a neutral view regarding the Capital punishment.It varies by jurisdictions.Capital punishment also known by its other names the death penalty, or execution.It is the infliction of death upon a person by judicial process as a punishment for an offense.
