the recidivism rate for those executed is zero


And yet, the error factor in determining if they were guilty is not.

If even one dies that was later exonerated, the system is flawed.

"But we, as taxpayers, would still have to foot a hefty bill--especially as so many crimes these days could likely qualify for "life"."

Not if they were made to work and provide a service for the country. They would be paying for their stay.

"Both long-term warehouseing of criminals and putting people to death are horrid options."

Warehousing isn't a nice option, but that's the whole point. It's such an unpleasant thought that it would make a great deterrant.

i hadn't noticed before that this was in the ProLife board.

I presume everyone in favor of the death penalty is pro-choice as well?

Its never safe to presume everyone that is in favour of the death Penalty is also Pro - Choice but I think a majority of women on this forum are Pro - Choice.

Thus far, long-term sentences have failed to prove an active detterant for crime.

What do these monsters have to contribute to society because they have no right to live in society once they have crossed that line......Or do they????

Do any of you think a mass murderer who gunned down 36 people including a mother holding her baby desrves a second chance?

If you had him in front of you and you had to pull the trigger, could you look him in the eyes and do it?

That's why I'd make it as unpleasant as possible for them. A lifetime of sorting through garbage just to pay for your 'accommodation' would put off anyone. At the moment it's just a big, free hotel.

"Do any of you think a mass murderer who gunned down 36 people including a mother holding her baby desrves a second chance?"

No, I think he should go and have a horrible remaining life in prison. I don't think execution would help anyone, apart from the criminal. After all, some of these guys are suicidal anyway, so it's hardly a deterrant.

I believe in the death penalty. The reason it does not work is because it takes so long. These guys are animals. They deserve to die. Anybody who commits murder should be put to death. And it should happen quickly. In the first year at least. Our judicial system does not consider the victims. Many of the guys who commit murder have killed before. Why should they be kept alive. How many appeals did the person they killed get. If they knew what was going to happen, I know they pleaded for their lives. Did it matter? No it didn't the animals still murdered. For the death penalty to really work it must be done faster. Especially in cases where there is no doupt who the killers are.

Michael Taylor and Roderick Nunley on Missouri death row, plead guilty to killing a 16 year old girl. Anne Harrison is her name. I know people forget who the victims are. These guys plead guilty to this crime. There is no doupt that they are guilty. They recieved the death Penalty and have been on death row since 1989. This is an outrage. They plead guilty. And since 1989, Anne Harrison is still dead. She gets zero appeals. No chance fro a court to give her a stay. She was executed by two animals who don't deserve to be among people. Yes, I feel the way the death penalty is administered here in the USA, it is a joke. And the animals know it. That is why they don't fear it. Sheep get preyed upon. We need to stop being sheep, and make these predators who take lives pay. For murder payment must be the ultimate. You take a life. You forfeit yours. If a murderer knows that his life is in danger, he won't be so fast to gamble with it. Sorry I went so long.

Yes I could. After all, he looked in his victims eyes and killed them. Or used a knife to watch the life slowly drain from them. They are animals.
