    Where are you on the Death Penalty?

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/sc...tHi?li=BBnb7Kz
    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Florida school shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz was formally charged Wednesday with 17 counts of first-degree murder, which could mean a death sentence if he is convicted.

    The indictment returned by a grand jury in Fort Lauderdale also charges the 19-year-old with 17 counts of attempted murder for the Valentine's Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in which 17 people died and more than a dozen others were wounded.

    Cruz's public defender has said he will plead guilty if prosecutors take the death penalty off the table, which would mean a life prison sentence. The Broward County state attorney has not announced a decision on the death penalty.
    Personally, i wish the cops that found him put a bullet in his head so we wouldnt have to worry about this crap.
    I am ok with the death penalty in some cases. This one being one of them.

    Re: Where are you on the Death Penalty?

    I'm for the death penalty where there is no doubt of who committed the crime, and the offender showed a disregard for their victims. Both apply in this case.

    I'm all for the death penalty for multiple murders, and for murder in connection with any other capital crime like rape, arson, kidnapping or robbery (including car-jacking).

    Under Universal Law, those people have voluntarily forfeited their lives for committing such violent acts. They can never be trusted again, and have no purpose in society, so executing them is not only just and proper, but also necessary.

    Leaving alone the conflicting (in your post) charges - it makes more sense to accept a guilty plea with an LWOP sentence than to guarantee funding a "show" trial (allowing for procedural error) and multiple appeals. That young, mass murdering punk will likely die sooner without the DP.

    I'm all for it when there is 100% evidence that cannot not be refuted. Short of that, life.

    I'm against the death penalty on religious grounds. In Christianity no one is beyond redemption. The apostle Paul was guilty of murdering the apostle Stephen but he was redeemed and became a great Christian.

    The other issue is you can't ever know with 100% certainty that someone is guilty. Even with Cruz, we can't know with 100% that he was genuinely responsible for his actions and not mentally impaired. Maybe he's mildly retarded and that in combination with the death of his parents and some bullying resulted in his horrific actions.

    We should accept the limitations of human justice and avoid imposing the ultimate penalty.

    Re: Where are you on the Death Penalty?

    I'm against it. There are certainly instances where we all think some guy should be dead, but the general process is flawed and far more expensive than life in prison without parole. Government is not god, and no longer needs the death penalty for proper justice or our overall security.

    Congratulations GOP voters; you elected a complete imbecile named Drumpf to the office of POTUS. The term imbecile was once used by psychiatrists to denote a category of people with moderate to severe intellectual disability, as well as a type of criminal.
