I think it is time that Michigan reinstated the death penalty. Many of these criminals who get out of jail do the same thing over again. How do you think it makes the parents of a child feel when they see these people on the street who have taken their childs life, or a person who was an upstanding citizen, had a job and family and then the family later see the person that killed out on the street.
Without the death penalty it is like a man with a broken leg and after x raying it put a band aid on and send him home.
If the death penalty were reinstated it would make some of these people think twice before they committed the crime, the jails wouldnt be as full and less expense for keeping them.
The time is now to reinstate the death penalty, with the terrorists growing in the communities at such a rapid pace.
It is better that the death penalty be reinstated than some distraught parent who was an upstanding citizen than having him shoot someone due to the loss of a family member and have to go to prison.
They shouldnt be left on death row as long either, before they are executed.
Good American Citizens should not have to walk in fear on any street in the USA.

hi i think that the death penalty should be reinstated. i think this because i think that the criminals that kill and rape people should also be treated the same way in which they killed or raped there victim. thats why i think the death penalty should be reinstated. thank you for listening to my comment of the death penalty.

i think death penalty should only be reinstated when there is a need like a serious offence or crime like raping, killing people for no reason, bombing...

I think we should reinstate the death penalty in Michigan. As a Tax payer I don't think my taxes should be spent keeping a Killer alive. It cost us over $100,000.00 a year for someone like Steven Grant who killed and dismembered his wife. And there are more killers who have our tax dollars keep there sorry bodies alive. Even the Bible said to put them to death

Rienstate the death penalty. Why let a murderer live when thir victims weren't given the chance to. Cold blooded murderers have no redeemable qualities and should lose thier right to live as a way to repay them for taking thier victims right to live.

I do believe that killing the death penalty was a mistake. Prisons are overcrowding, food is becoming expensive, and it's having a drain on tax payer's money.
Not only that, we need to have additional laws putting a deadline for the execution to occur no later then one year after the sentencing.
I also suggest that we make it mandatory for capital murder, rape, and multiple felonies (if a person has convicted for a third violent crime). I also believe that we need to switch back to hanging as a primary means of execution, since it's cheaper and can be done on multiple inmates.

yes, reinstate the death penalty, they do it again when they get out, they know they get out early, and then they get welfare money and food stamps, then they go out and join a gang and kill again, the system is dumb and corrupted, they need to look at the crimes reported, the murders that was done, and the early release of dangerous criminals, and bring back hanging and the electric chair, it give them an ideal how the victim suffer before they die.
