Re: Utah killer executed by firing squad

I always hear about how much executions cost yady yada yada, but how much does it cost the taxpayer in the end? Probably not that much - and when it gets scum like John Allen Muhammad out of here, I don't mind paying it at all.

I guess it's more of an opinion to me, I'd pay the money to get a rapist murderer or anything along that line out of here, they have no meaning to life. Sure you can lock them away for life, but I'd rather pay for the death than to keep them alive, them and the other thousands that are serving life sentences, let alone them having a chance for getting out in 25 years on good behavior just makes me sick.

Sometimes it's important to keep numbers in perspective. "Millions" is nothing when it comes to the US budget.

Yes, I'll gladly pay my $1 to see these people get what's coming.
My guess is that a school near you is firing teachers because there is not enough money. So let me put the equation this way: abolish the death penalty and provide better educations by keeping teachers on the job or keep killing people and provide worse educations because teachers must be fired.

Dna gets screwed up all the time,the lab here in houston has fucked up so many cases its unreal.Also I watched a show the iother night and part of it was about some woman who had 4 kids and none of them matched her dna.So its pretty damn hard to be 100% sure.As far as the death penalty is concerned,I dont care if they keep it or do away with it

Dude, you're smarter than this. Just because innocent people die every day doesn't justify killing them intentionally. Is-Ought Confusion.

Public schools are largely supported by local real estate taxes, not the federal budget. Some of the poorer areas get supported by federal money. But my school district is doing fine, and that's all I give a rat's ass about.

Your point does not withstand. The millions we "waste" on the death penalty amounts to a drop in the bucket for even the poorest of Americans.

Re: Utah killer executed by firing squad

The death penalty should be abolished for so many reasons. The cost, the hypocrisy of it, the fact that too many innocent people are wrongly put to death, etc. It's just barbaric. As a so called "civilized" society we should be better than this.

Part of the state's authority in administering justice is to provide retribution to the victims and society in general. Someone rapes/murders my wife, sister or kills my son, godson, or niece, the state damn well better execute the SOB. If not, I'd do everything in my power to find a way to handle it.

The number of innocent people executed is extremely small and even smaller with today's better technology. What about the people who commit murder that would classify as a death penalty punishment, aren't they barbaric? A civilized society is ruled by laws, and violation of those laws requires punishment.

Murder is murder, period. Saying it's only justified as a punishment makes no sense to me at all. Yes, the act of murder should be punished. Life in prison is just fine. This eye for an eye bullshit however is absurd and caveman-esque thinking.

There are no statistics to show that the death penalty acts as a deterent and most families with a murdered family member report no feeling of satisfaction when their killer is put to death.
