    The tricky point is how they decide who deserves it. A guy who kills a homeowner in a robbery is a definite candidate. A guy who kills another guy in a tavern fight I think would be better suited with prison sentence.

    Perhaps capital punishment should be legal in all states except Texas. Giving someone capital punishment needs to have a beyond doubt of having the right guy. Texas has shown over and over again to be a failure in that aspect.
    Intent is a huge factor, and the extreme nature of the crime. Intent.

    But it is all connected. You know I have a good point.

    "I feel the same way, though I fully support a defence of 'self-defence' when someone has been violently attacked. Should a victim of assault kill his/her assailant, provided it is within a reasonable time limit, I'd support them."

    See? Much clearer, no?

    I have no idea how this relates to the DP, however.

    It's not incomprehensibe, some of us just don't think it's proper use of the government to extract revenge killings on criminals.

    Eventually. Should reading posts in a thread be that difficult? I guess the guy's a lawyer, so we shouldn't expect clarity.

    Doctors are even worse, and then there are foreigners (damn them), but I am a teacher, so it has to be pretty clear. I read poorly constructed sentences from students far too often.

    I still have a High School report in which 3 different entries by 3 different teachers remain indecipherable to me, after 33 years!

    It is probably just me, and not the profession. I have always been pretty neat and organised with regards to how I communicate.
