Saddam hangs

What are we doing hanging people in this day and age? I just don't get the whole capital punishment deal. Pretty barbaric if you ask me.

well, it was pretty barbaric what that monster did to many many innocent men, women and children over the years.. I can see both sides of the fence on this issue about capital punishment, and ultamiatley I feel like there are crimes commitited that deserve no less than death. If it were up to me I would put to death EVERY single child molester and child pornographer that is caught and proven guilty, and before the next sunrise I might add. And there are other crimes I believe justify the death penalty. At the rate our countrys less desireables keep filling our prisons we have to in my mind speed up the process on the ones sentenced to death. Sitting on death row for 10+ years?? give me a break. I like the 30 day policy. Anyway like it or not thats my 2 cents. Have a great New Year everybody and be safe.

First, regardless of your views on capital punishment, you have to admit that Saddam Hussein should not be treated as just another death row inmate. He deserves a very public, humiliating, and cruel execution (given his horrific crimes, I don't think that's off base).

Secondly, Matty, don't say "what are WE doing hanging people this day in age." It's not we, as in the Americans are not hanging him. We caught him, but Iraq tried him, Iraq convicted him, Iraq sentenced him, and Iraq executed him. The US didn't hang him. It's their thing, do what they wanna do, we can't tell them who to sock it to.

Thirdly, I'm all for capital punishment. I'm not interested in paying taxes to feed death row inmates here in the states for the rest of their lives. I'm not religious; I have no moral problem with killing someone who, left to their own devices, would kill again.

I think he means "we" as a people in whole, and I heard it costs more in legal court rooms to execute then put someone in jail for the rest of their lives.

[B]Pope Benedict XVI's top prelate for justice issues, Cardinal Renato Martino, took a similar tack, noting Saddam's execution punishes "a crime with another crime ... the death penalty is not a natural death."[/B]

I guess it wasn't the pope that said it, but nevertheless.

At any rate.
I saw this getting political from a mile away.

Not if they are executed in thirty days. When courts allow appeals based on non-evidenciary old issues (i.e. not new evidence, or problems with the original trial), then the costs skyrocket. My father was a judge, and I could relay stories from a death penalty trial he had that would curl your hair (the accused trying to have witnesses killed from jail, some of whom were family members). This person was a threat to others while in custody, and showed zero remorse. Why would a civilized society allow him access to potential victims?

There are some crimes and some criminals that are beyond rehabilitation.

Re: Saddam hangs
 
I personally dont care how much it cost to execute someone vs. life in prison. As it was said it dont cost too much if they get it done in 30 days or less. And inmates still have access to anything and everything they had on the streets. They can still harm people. I must sadly admit I have a family member whos been in prison for over ten years who had the misfortune of being involved in a 3 person fight and one ended up dead.The dead guy was trying to rob the other two. And I can tell you its easy to get things into prison.Guards will do anything for the right amount of $$.
