Anyone that thinks they want to watch an execution needs to do a web search on "botched executions." I don't believe a sane person would ever want to see a live one after that.

I am sure I will. However, it still stands, I do feel anyone that wants to watch an executiion needs to do a web search on botched executions. For the record, did you do a web search of this? If not, why not?

I have no personal interest is seeing criminals executed. I do think those being executed should be put on display for all to see. Here in China it used to be the common custom to parade them thru the streets so the population could see just who the state considered bad enough to deserve this. It keeps the state accountable. In those parades I witnessed of those on their way to be executed in the main square, there was always a mummer of approval, as they were recognized. Like "yeah, I know that guy, he definitely deserves it". Hiding it all away secretly behind closed doors leads to suspicion and distrust

Bob Burns: I am happy to know that you have no personal interest in seeing someone executed. I know for sure I don't. However, I have said at times in the past myself that I feel they should just put a person to death and not even have a trial. This was usually after the vicious murder of someone. These remarks were said in anger and even then I know if it came right down to it and I was forced to watch I would probably be the one crying the hardest.

With all the people being found not guilty in the U.S. and some after many many years of being locked away, I know mistakes are being made. I also know we have prosecutors, detectives, and even judges that do not care if they have the right person, but only that they can win that case and how it will help their careers. I do hope they are way in the minority--but I do know we have them.

You and I will probably never agree on this no matter how long we discuss it, so thanks for your input and for your response to my question.

Isn't it amazing how the lefty bleeding hearts always cry the hardest for these murdering monsters. Never do they speak of the victims and their rights to justice. In this case, Leavitt's family has been in constant contact with him ,the same can not be said for ELG's family. Well tomorrow the victim will have justice ,although delayed , justice. Take out the trash Idaho
