    Growing is a continual process, the more intellect, IMO, the more time this takes, and its never over..
    So, at age 50 ....agree to the death penalty....hanging or a firing squad.
    At age 60...no, lifetime incarceration, only if a "sane" but emotional murder was committed.
    70, the age 70, we must work on ways to prevent murder, to identify possible "nut cases"....no death penalty.
    BTW, Mr Zimmer,the closing of minds has NOTHING TO DO with liberal or conservative.... its an intellectual/attitude thing.

    I don't really need the latest update on horrible crimes to inform my unwavering opposition to the DP. It's not a cumulative thing, it's a moral thing.

    No. It's not necessary for security.

    It kinda takes the wind out of the argument if we show that killing is wrong... by killing.

    Capital punishment sets a bad example.

    Re: The Latest Lynchings Yes/No

    If someone kills someone I love, I want them to sit alone in a room and think about it for the rest of their lives.

    I'm not totally against the concept of putting down those who are simply animals who can't be allowed to roam the streets with the kids and old folks.

    Determining who is beyond redemption is a whole 'nother thing.

    But some are.

    And it can cost upwards of $40k a year to house the bad boys.
