      What happend to letting SOM do it LOL...

      Yes we do need the Death penalty but it should be met with the crim no electric chair or needle. Shot we could save a tone of money if they just bring in a bunch of good rope and hange the idiots, Rope is resusable and very cost affecient. And down here in the south we have plenty of good oak trees we can do 100 at a time

              I think one was scheduled for execution in our state today. Haven't caught up on whether it was carried out, but my email was barraged by sympathetic pansies asking for a reprieve! A reprieve for killing a cop? No thank you. God rest his soul, but I have no sympathy at all for cop killers.

                  Yes, but with exceptions. Defendant must be adequately represented, especially if appointed by the court. No for anyone under 18, even though they could be tried as an adult. No for mentally challenged individuals. No for crimes with only circumstantial evidence. And jury must have three options: death penalty, life without parole, or life (I think some states only allow two, death or life). And finally, jury rules need to be revamped big time.

                    I oppose the death penalty in principal - you can't bring somebody back who was later found to be not guilty. You'd be surprised how often people get convicted on just unreliable eyewitness ID or false confessions:

                    I'd also add to Hudson's list to limit news coverage in death penalty cases. Certainly no cameras in the court house. The likes of Nancy Grace and Fox News will say he/she is guilty looong before any evidence is heard! Trying to get unbiased jurors is hard enough.

                        No chairs. No injection. No rope. The justice should be eye for an eye. Period. Let the survivors of victims kill the monster. The same goes for VAWA. If found fabricated and false, men/women should have a right to inflict pain and torture against the false accuser to ensure what was written in the false VAWA is now justified by the actions.

                          I can't totally disagree with this. Beyond reasonable doubt does sometimes leave the verdict questionable. But, if the evidence is such that there with 100% certainty the person in question is guilty, and the crime warrants the death penalty, then I say go for it. I am pretty sure people who are anti-death penalty would feel a bit different if it was their family member who was brutally raped or murdered. How would you like your tax dollars going for the upkeep of the person convicted of such a crime for life??? Not me.

                            That doesn't work. That's why states are moving away from the death penalty, because it does not deter a criminal mind.

                              Studies have shown that for every execution, several lives are saved. More executions means more living people who once may have been victims.
