If that was the case, then every 60 year old would act like an A-hole. The fact that most, don't shows that your deficiencies have nothing to do with a generational gap.

The death penalty serves no good at all. It does not deter, it does not bring back the murder victim, it does not do anything other than exact revenge.
It does cost more money to go through the appeals process on death row than it does to house someone for life.
And then there are the mistakes. One mistaken execution is one too many.
Life without parole is sufficient to take the violent offender out of society.
It makes me feel good to see the riff raff leave the planet. So the DP is a good thing. When we limit the appeals process to only procedure errors and only evidence that proves innocence if filed within one year of sentencing, it'll be a lot cheaper. Don't care id they are nuts, stupid, raised in a monkey cage, or anything else. They killed and they need to disappear.

<quoted text>
The purpose of law and a justice system is to be sure that people do not act on their own to exact their own kind of justice. Yes, if the victim were someone I cared deeply about, I would have urges to strangle the defendant with my bare hands. But just because that is what I want to do, does not mean that I should or wish for the state to do it for me.
Trust me, if I thought that the death penalty had any kind of deterring effect, I would be all for it. But it does not. I wish it did.
If I thought that innocent people had never been executed by mistake, I would be all for it, but unfortunately that has happened. At least a life sentence might give someone a chance to clear their name.
So instead of wasting so much time, money and resources on something that does little other than drag out a drama and rehash pain, why not lock them up and be done with it. There is no such thing as closure. The pain of losing a family member to murder never goes away no matter what.
Name me a truly innocent victim of the DP. Someone who had never been arrested, never was under suspicion, dinking drink to excess, didn't use drugs, worked at 8 to 5 job working in a bank or collecting trash, and living a good life. Don't you dare call a lifetime criminal "innocent". I don't know of any DP prisoner who has not had many notices to change their life.

Don't blame me because you're too stupid to know Left from right; trouble maker? Why is that? Anyone who doesn't agree with your insane propaganda you call names.
Here's a even better idea, why don't you commit suicide? You sound like a 3rd grade dropout on your way to death anyway you certainly don't sound like an American with a future or you wouldn't be "BABALING" on getting off on your own stupid post that says absolutely nothing.
Try looking in the mirror, that should help you commit suicide for sure!!!

And what the hell do know about acid trips?
Why do you people insist on dividing America?

What the heck is a liberal?
Use the air that's left in your own head, don't parrot what you heard on those stupid right-wing talk shows.

Explain with your own hot air; What is a liberal?

LOL' I know you can't do it, because an intelligent person would never use that word.
Liberal is a word used for "dog whistle politics to communicate with weak minded simpletons that there's so kind of threat upon you.

Like a Clay-Pigeon, while you're terrified about a divisive word like "LIBERAL" the right-wing Nazi's are busy making millions selling franchises to the Taliban so-called terrorists that own all the places where you go to shop.

LOL, See how dumb Americans are?
What does it cost you in gas a year to go back and forth to work Sneak-a Piss?
The art of diversion is what those idiot talk shows are for to keep people like you looking in the wrong direction.

As a citizen, I want to feel safe. In my bed, in my home, on my street, in my car, at the store, at a sports event. We want and should be able to expect a safe place to live and play. So I don't want vicious people set free once they have shown a willingness to attack innocent people.

I support the death penalty for those who willingly engage in certain crimes (not just murder).

I am not talking about the homeowner who takes a life while defending his home. Not talking about the father who shoots the man raping his daughter. Not even talking about the bad guy who gets into a "fair fight" with his rival and happens to be the one who survives.

I am talking about the man who plots to murder his wife rather than go through a divorce. The woman who would kill her husband for his insurance. The man who would kill his neighbor for his savings, or his prescription drugs. Those people who would take another's life so they might benefit in some way, they deserve death.

Certainly talking about the spree killers, the serial killers, the school shooters, the bomber makers.

And I am talking about those people who beat their elderly, their children, who abuse them repeatedly. Jail may be appropriate if the victim survives with little damage, but I would put to death those who torture anyone for their own sport.(Yes, talking about those abusers of children found chained to porches, in closets, of those children found scarred, starved, human prey.)

I am NOT advocating the death penalty in cases where there is ANY doubt of the person's guilt. I do know innocent people suffer in a judicial system that sometimes gets it wrong. But in cases where there is absolutely no doubt, WHY NOT REMOVE THE KILLERS FROM SOCIETY?

The new problem, how to kill those who deserve death.

Can't get those drugs from overseas because they don't agree with the death penalty? That's a joke. Since when is America so backwards they can't figure out how to make a drug that kills?

And let's cut to the chase here and deal with another issue - the cost of such a drug.

I have the solution. It is right under our noses.

I know where we can get the drug, more than we could ever need. I can get it for FREE! That should please the taxpayers!

Just go to any major law enforcement property room and check out an ample supply of heroin. That's right, we all know an overdose kills, and kills fast. Read the news, the addicts still have the needles in their arms when they are found.

I have been following the news. Can't buy the drug cocktail. So horrible, these botched executions. Well, give the executioners effective drugs and there won't be a problem. Skip paying for more research, the drug is know and available. Heroin.

Problem solved, no?
