Thank you Gmaint: At least one other understood my jibe, and not get all hyper that I was making a Godfather movie cliché/ threat.

Death Penalty vs. Life Without Parole


"Driven in part by advances in forensics, a growing number of wrongful convictions have been overturned in the United States.
According to the National Registry of Exonerations, there were a record 87 in 2013.
Of the 1,337 exonerations tracked by the registry since 1989, nearly half — 619 — were wrongful homicide convictions."

New to the thread but I'm completely fine with death penalty. I think of it like this, I dont want taxpayer dollars to pay for some clown to live for the rest of his natural life.

Also new to the conversation, I am not in favour as it serves no purpose other than to feed our need for revenge! Life imprisonment accomplishes the same thing. I don't understand what gives us as a society the right to take a life....kind of hypocritical no???

This alone is enough to show we should not have the death penalty.

I'm for the death penalty, but only with these conditions:

1 - the person freely admitted guilt
2 - the person has proven to be beyond rehabilitation

Alot of people freely admit guilt to avoid the death penalty...so it provides false confessions.

Ayuh,.... The problem with that is,...

The State decides to cut 'em Free, long before they're dead,....

Christmas a year ago, several Firemen killed near Rochester Ny,....
Convict at the trigger had been given Life,...
He told the parole board, he'd probably kill again,...
They cut 'im loose anyways,...
Less than a year later, We're burin' dead Firemen,...

No heads rolled off the Parole Board,...
All still collectin' their paychecks funded with My money,...
No blame to the State,...
Here in the Kingdom of Cuomo, outlawin' more guns is the King's answer,...

The botched execution in Oklahoma yesterday brings attention to just how barbaric and evil it is for a civilized society to kill its citizens for any reason (IMO).

It's evil and barbaric for a civilized society to put cold blooded murderers to death? Give me a break. Read what this savage did to that young lady in 1997, and then come back and tell us about evil barbaric behavior.

I couldn't care less if he suffered while dying, it should have happened years ago. The only suffering that matters to me is that of his victim's family members who have had to wait so long to see justice served.

I just don't see it. One violent action doesn't justify another. Eye for an eye mentality.

here is my opinion , if someone kill's another person , than we the people should just lock this person up for the rest of his life, feed and all of life stuff he get's for free , oh your's and mine $$'s , i don't think so if found guilty than guess what come's next . i don't feal for any one that kill's , he should be killed like he killed , i don't feel for them no place in today's world .

Aside from, or in addition to I should say, my personal feelings on the subject, it doesn't seem logical.

What is the goal of our justice system? If the goal is only to punish those who commit crimes then it makes sense to have death as the maximum penalty.

But what if the goal is to reduce violence, and other crime, and make our country a better place to live overall. To 'protect and serve' so to speak.

We don't want people to kill other people so we will kill Them if they do...
We want to reduce violence so we use the threat of the ultimate violence as a deterrent...

How can violence beget anything but violence?
How does the death penalty make out country a better place to live?
