HI Michelle

Yes this issue is exteemley personal for me....I am not upset and I do sincerley appoligise for comming across that way.

Sometimes I find it hard to express myself in the written word but I am learning.I am a very passionate person - you should hear me talk about politics...lol!!!! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I keep a close eye on a group we have here called people against leniant sentencing...What some of these people have gone through will break your heart.It just seems more and more these days that the victims rights are taken away and the "Evil Animals" who commit these evil acts get sentences that hurt the victims even more.I can go on and on about this but I wont for fear of sounding like a raving lunatic...lol..:)

My husband is for the d.p., and I am against it. We get into quasi-heated discussions, but at the end of the day, we love each other and would never require each other to bend their ethics to our own. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

I do like to bring facts to the fore so folks can make up their own mind. Even I, when presented with facts, have changed my mind on subjects. And I am cautious to offer an opinion when I don't have all the facts.

That said, I am going to bow out of this discussion. I've said my piece and that's all one can do.

I haven't read all the replies, so please forgive me if this has been mentioned.

Here's how I look at it. Think about spending life in prison. Excellent chance at getting raped. No freedom. No walks in the park on beautiful days. Institutionalized food. Screaming maniacs and more immature behavior by some inmates than you ever could have imagined. No chance at true intimacy with a spouse. You're treated like a child, having to ask permission to do the basic things that many of us take for granted. Someone is always guarding you, because you're an animal in a cage. If you're half-way sane, you have to live thinking about the violent crime you've committed, for the rest of your life. You'll never travel on holiday. You'll never spend another holiday in the living room with your family. If you have children, you'll never be a real part of their lives.

Or think about your life being very quickly ended with an injection or a jolt of electricity. Sure, probably some pain, but in a few moments, you're in a perfect world where there is no pain.

Which would you choose? I'd choose death, no doubt! Thus, it's much more of a punishment to rot in prison for the rest of one's life than it is to very quickly and humanely end your life (which almost assuredly did not happen to the people you victimized).

So, setting morals aside for a moment, I think it's a greater punishment to put someone in prison for the rest of his life instead of ending his suffering on earth!

I think the death sentance would be a deterent if they actualy used it in a timely fashion in stead of whating 20 years to do it!!! the perisions are over crowed so they let pirsoners go that should stay in. i think that repeat offender of child sexual asults, child abuse and murder of anykind exepect selfdefence should get the death penaltiy if they are repeat offener and have been found guilt put in jail and released and found guilt of the same thing or worse more then 2x. why should i have to pay there room and board!!! why should we let the parrol borads put them back on the streets to kill, rape and harm our loved ones or some one elses? my mom works in the prison units here and most of them are child and sex offender that talk about when they get out what they will do and it is not like in the movies where the talk about how they will change and never do it again and how the are going to better them selfes!!! the only time you even start to hear that kind of thing is when they are close to getting up infront of a parol board!!! you can not change a serial killer/ rapist/ or child abuser... sorry but i think if we send them to God HE can deside what to do with them and it would keep others from going down that road too!!!

that is my view and i respect all of yours!!!

I'm a proponent of the death penalty in theory, but not in application. In theory, I think a sentence of death is justifiable for murderers, rapists, child molesters. The problem is, as Go Barbaro pointed out, that there have been far too many people who have spent 10, 15, 20 years on death row only to be found innocent. Once you execute a person, there's no going back. Also, the death penalty is applied unfairly. If Gary Ridgeway (aka The Green River Killer), one of the most prolific serial killers in US history, can avoid the death penalty, how can you justify sentencing anyone else to death? So much of it depends on the quality of your legal representation, the state in which you commit the crime, the mood of the jurors, and whether you have something to deal or not.


Mother always said that even when things seem bad there's someone else who's having a worse day. Like being stung by a bee or getting a splinter or being chained to the wall in someone's sex dungeon.

When a person commits a henious crime that deserves the death penalty it does not matter really if they get the death penalty or not as they are spiritualy dead.They will be going to hell anyway...

I guess its better to let them rot in prison.I used to belive in the death penalty but I no longer do because it is better to let them suffer in prison for the rest of their life.I am really glad we dont have the death penalty - it really is the easy way out.

Unless you're a woman and don't want to be inconvenienced for a few months to save a child's life.....! Pure lunacy.
