    The Death Penalty

    What are your views about the ultimate penalty? I have mixed emotions, BUT I do have a problem with these murderers claiming lethal injection is cruel and unusual. Right....and hitting someone with a hammer repeatedly isn't? Ok...now I'm for it. I'm so confused!

    Well..... here are my thoughts on this. The death penalty is right in my eyes. Especially if a child was murdered. I think all these child molesters should have their weiner chopped off and then slabbed on a hook and bled to death.

    I'm sorry if this sounds hideous. But I have seen in person what the monsterous freaks do to these kids. And yes it PISSES me off. How sick in the head do you have to be to do something like , Murder? Self defense, is total different thing though.

    Ugh it's a bad day for me to be on this forum today!

    Not only should it be used in Capital Murder, but also those sickos who molest little children.

    Tim McVeigh.Nuff said about the death penalty.Child molesters deserve the big fix also.When you murder their innocence that is a horrific crime.

    Here's my thoughts...which are different...like me!

    I guess that I have a different take on the death penalty....even drastically different from how I used to feel. Since I think that everyone's eventual death will be a release, either toward's a place of beauty, the next round (which is what I would hope for the truly evil ones) or perhaps into the void of non-existence....though my spirituality disagrees with that last concept. Why not prolong a meaningless life of a waste of human DNA, in some cell....rather than waste my tax dollars on the endless (and often times required) years of red-tape & appeals. I've read that it costs us more to execute than to warehouse for life. I don't mean to offend anyone...but would rather see death sentences commuted to life without parole or appeals?
    Of course, this sentence should be played out in the manner that Florida's death row inmates live. I think that solitude in a very small cell without a window, tv, radio or access to the outside world is a harsher penalty than to be "released" from prison via death. I've never had a loved one murdered, kidnapped or fall prey to a child molester (to my knowlege), so I know that I cannot possibly understand what those families feel is a just punishment. But for me....not that I've ever been or ever would do anything to be arrested....I'd rather be dead than locked away for life. I suspect that is how some on death row feel too....so why give what they want?

    Psychopaths and sociopaths cannot be rehabilitated. I get really upset when Hollywood rallies around the death row cause of the day. I can't imagine what that does to the families of the murder victims.

    I agree 100% with this (and the other comments).
    When that thug Tookie Williams was set to die and
    celebs like Mike Farrell were crying foul.

    Did he or any other supporters of that leech ever see
    the murder photos? Anyhow my 2 cents.
    Now back to our regularly scheduled forum.

    "An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth".

    Say you shot and beat someone to death...well that is the penalty you should get!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Child molesters:

    Castrate them with a sharpe knif with no anesthesia. Or Put it in a vice and slowly turn the vice!!!

    I love Joplinfrk's Idea as well!!!

    Seems to me that the problem with sex criminals doesn't really center "below the belt" but in their brains (or the sh*t that's inside their skulls where a brain ought to be). Mutilating/castrating won't make them less inclined to seduce victims....just less able to get any sick physical thing out of it. Maybe they should be sentenced to live on some deserted island......let 'em rape/torture/murder each other with no means to do harm to the outside world.

    I just don't "get" how the death penalty is "cruel & unusual" punishment for these cons. So, the way these beasts slaughtered someone isn't considered "cruel & unusual"?

    We are just supposed to put these guys gently to "sleep" like we would a sick dog?

    It just makes NO sense to me.

    If it's proven without a doubt at all that they did the crime - then they should suffer for what they did.

    I'm pretty sure all these crybabies protesting the death penalty never had someone close to them be murdered.

    And I'm pretty sure once they did, they'd change their tune and be right there to witness the execution!

    I know if someone did harm to my family, it would take everything to keep me from going out and taking care of things myself!

    I agree, while I don't think that being "put to sleep" is a more harsh punishment than to live out one's years locked in a tiny cell, I'd never expend my energy protesting the use of capital punishment. (much less cry over the demise of those who are sentenced.)

    You are absolutely right. Baracade the island with enclosed cages in the water for man eating sharks for when they try to escape.

    Tookie Wiiliams - What a truck load of crappola that was!!!!! Gang thugs warning if Tookie gets executed the people will riot in the streets. Of course that never happened because the Black people down in South Central Los Angeles were happy as hell this scum was dead. I worked with over 1000 Blacks and in Tookie's gang days, they would come to work frazzled. Another shooting in their neighborhood. The kids were not allowed to play outside. Blinds were kept drawn, people sleeping on the floor in case a stray bullet came thru their homes. The stories these fine folks had to tell about Tookie and his thugs were terrible and scary to hear. I am totally for the death penalty. While I agree it is not a crime deterant, Tookie sure as heck will never murder another person.

    My take on the death penalty? If convicted, you get one appeal...that must happen within 3 months of the sentence. If you don't get it taken care of in that 3 months? Guess what? Sunrise on the day following the 3 months you are executed by firing squad ( head shots with high powered rifle with laser scope doncha know?)

    Child molesters? Same deal.

    No matter how we look at things, there is a huge problem with the growing masses who are being cared for by our tax dollars.....we once had a national budget surplus but that money is gone.....something is going to have to change before things get much worse.

    1 question. If it was you on death row, would you rather die or stay in prison for the rest of our life? I would chose death myself. I would make them all work hard labor for life. Commie gulag style!

    Good point. I could do a year or even 10 years in jail, but to know I'd NEVER be free again, kill me.

    Some cons get used to prison life - three hot meals a day and a bed to sleep in. And some that get released, do a crime so they can get put back in, since they can't handle life on the "outside" and like it better in prison!

    I don't know, if I were to be put in prison for the rest of my life, I'd probably adapt to it somehow. I think in life, everyone learns to adapt to some sort of lifestyle!

    Again (hate to sound like or be labled as a broken record) for ME, it would be far more unbearable to know that I would never see freedom than to be "put to sleep". But that's just me.

    Simple question........please answer YES or NO (Death Penalty)

    Do you believe in the DEATH PENALTY? No other responses needed because we really don't need to start fighting here. We all have our own opinions.
    My answer is:
    YES
