Yeah, in a perfect world we would know innocence or guilt, and carry out the punishment without all the fuss and expense.<quoted text>I too have flipped. But since they don't carry out the death sentence and we spend millions housing them in a certain way and with all the appeals. It's a waste of money, make them suffer behind bars. I'd be for it if it was a faster process for those with no doubt of guilt.
I suppose it boils down to, would I go for a headshot if you attacked my wife or children or grandchildren... the answer is.. yes I would, and not feel a moment of guilt over it.
You aren’t wrong there, which is why I won’t argue your stance, it is a logical and understandable one.
But there are a few that I would gladly flip the switch on myself. And I think we have tied the hands of justice a lot already.
If it came to a vote today, on re-legalizing the death penalty... I would have to think about it before I voted, and I cannot tell you now which way I would vote, because I am not sure which way I would go.
I agree wiht the death penalty in principal, but not how it is currently practiced in most states.
