I say if guilt is obvious like in this case then death should be carried out quickly. Why spend countless dollars to feed, shelter and take care of someone who carried out such a terrible crime.
It is my opinion that if public executions were brought back you would see a dramatic drop in crime. Now we all know that public hangings will never be considered but how about televised executions at a designated time on a designated channel (so parents can shelter small children), say 630 between local and national news.
The whole ideal behind the death penalty is to deter future crimes but I believe we all can agree that that is not working. So change the broken system.
I could almost promise that if someone knew that if they took a life or hurt a child then they could be on national tv being executed within say a month I bet people would rethink their choices before doing such horrible acts.
To conclude, I know that many safeguards must be installed to insure that an innocent person is not killed and that my idea needs tweaking but I believe the end result would be less crime. Give people a TRUE consequence for their bad decisions and human nature will be to make less and less of those bad decisions.

"Like Old Days" is right. A swift and speedy execution. It doesn't make any sense for people to sit on death row for years. If they can't execute them quickly then let them be a service to society. Instead of experimenting on these helpless animals with new drugs, inject those death row SOB's with a disease and experiment with drugs on them. Then we would know for sure the side effects and if they worked. If they worked, Great, if they didn't we saved a lethal injection.
I agree

I think there should definitly be public executions and i also think there should be a whipping post smack dab in the middle of town, then maybe all this crap around here would stop! Its disgusting to look in the paper and see these peoples names EVERY week for the SAME stuff! Im sick of going to work everyday while crooks and druggies lay on their doped up butts... and if you take another persons life just because you feel like you can... well i think you need to be done the EXACT same way. As for child molesters... i think they should be castrated! child beaters and people that are mean to the elderly.... yep... beat the crap out of em!... i have no sympathy for these people. they all made choices to become the people they are! I could preach on this all night. Makes me sick whats happened to this country and to our town!!!

That would not stop them.
It's not a sexual thing to them,it a control thing.
It's evil.
They could still use an instrument of some kind to sexually abuse a child and still get that satifaction they get from the evil they do.

I say put'em in prison,'ole Bubba will take care of 'em.
He'll get what he deserves and know the pain he inflicted on the children.

(Minus losing his childhood and innocence)

There is no earthly cure for pedophilia.

Only God can cure something like that.

I do not believe it is our place to take another human beings life. Thats for God to do. They will face him one day.
