    Ok This Is How I Feel

    If you have the intent to kill (planned it out, not by accident) then I say the only just punishment for taking something as precious as life is with a life. I'm getting my theories from the Bible so life for life. Putting people away(prison) for killing a person is like...

    An Eye For An Eye, So to Speak

    Not Used Enough

    Not only am I for the death penalty, but I also believe more crimes should qualify one for it. Any crime involving violence, especially violent sexual crimes, should be a capital offense. Going a bit further, I think the method of execution for murders should be the same as how...

    Why Is The Death Row Wait So Long?

    I believe that if there is incontrovertible proof of a murder or rape or child molestation, then the guilty person should never even make it out of the courtroom. As soon as the jury reads the verdict and the judge approves it, the judge should excuse the jury and then tell the...

    for heinous crimes. Anyone who murders a bunch of people, who sexually abuses a child, or rapes someone, does not deserve to live. People may not agree with me, and that is fine, they don't have to, but I KNOW what being sexually abused does to someone, and for someone to do...

    The Most Deserving

    I believe that child abusers, child molesters, and rapists are the most deserving of the death penalty. You can not reform a child molester or rapist. Just look at the recidivism rate of perpetrators of these crimes. People that beat on children don't deserve to live anyways.For...

    I support the execution of criminals

    as a principle. I don't think it's implemented practically, though. The appeal process takes so long and the cost to the state to carry out an execution is enormous, often higher than the cost of life imprisonment. So I don't have any issue with the concept of the Death Penalty...

     Okay... my views on the death penalty waver constantly. Sometimes, I think the crime is too gross and horrible and some people just don't deserve to live. Other times, I think that they don't deserve such an easy way out. It all depends.
