I'm against the death penalty, but if you are going to do it, what takes this fucking long?

Guy was in prison since 1980, but not given the dp until 1997 for a charge he confessed to.

Larry Flynt wrote a column opposing his execution but calling for his torture, I never know when that guy is kidding.

The only thing wrong with the death penalty is that rich people never seem to be euthenized.

Not a good reason to stop executions,though. Lets relax the restrictions, fry more millionaires.

Why fry more millionaires?

In deciding who gets the death penalty, or any other penalty for that matter, shouldn't a person's contribution to society be considered?

If you think no, why not?

After all, isn't a court-imposed penalty society's way of evening the balance?

For instance, say you've got two drug users, both caught for the same crime.

One has worked their entire life, maybe done some charity work, made enough money to have paid 100's of thousands, if not millions in taxes...they've had a good job, and generally speaking, a pretty good contributor to society.

On the other hand, you've got a life long ne'er do well...spotty employment history, probably have taken more than they've received, have relied on government hand outs and other sources of charity (many of which are funded by the fellow from above)...generally speaking, haven't really done much to push the ball forward for society...while many of their acts (or lack thereof) aren't really criminal, not only have they not really helped society, they've been for the most part, a drain on society.

For the same offense, should these people be treated the same?

If so, why?

blah blah blah.....



When talking MURDER, the answer is NO, period.

It is irrelevant what you have done for society if you kill some one.

If you an not understand that simple fact, well you are an idiot.

Same with your other stupid scenarios - if you do crime A, you get punishment B - regardless of $, race, sex etc.... That is it, if it is not implemented that way, it is not fair justice.

Ted Bundy made some good contributions to his political party and was from most accounts a good person. Should he have not been executed?

Good work, and plenty of reasons behind your opinions.

Throw in a little name calling for good measure.

Well done, sir!

I'm white. I think that should be considered when I get sentenced.

Maybe, maybe not.

What do you think?

Maybe his violent acts outweighed his contributions to society, hmm?

On the other hand, though, what if somebody's good acts far outweigh their "criminal" acts?

Should they be treated/punished the same as somebody who did the same act, but does not have the totality of good that the other fellow had?

Why or why not?

Aren't we looking for "fair justice", in the words of angry man above?

While I think the idea of the death penalty is fine, I think the implementation is a bit of an issue. It costs far more money than it saves by simply holding these people until they expire of natural causes.

Also, certain religions get really excited when you kill their members.

+1000. Agree completely. So sick of poor folks, with the most God awful defense team representing them. A travesty of justice, and its time to increase the amount its used, with these types of people in mind.

"Franklin had a particular dislike for interracial couples - several of his victims were black men and the white women with them."

OK, so wasn't *all* bad, right? He should get some credit for performing a public service.
