    Capital punishment is the sickest extreme of governmental power.

I also think organ harvesting to help pay for the victims losses would be good.
    I think this kind of behaviour makes the authorities look as sadistic as the criminals and all it will do is allow them to garner sympathy from the public. A quick swift death is enough, we should be thinking with the victims in mind not our personal vengeance. It sends a message, keeps them off the streets for good and becomes a noble act rather than a sadistic one.

    Capital punishment is the sickest extreme of governmental power.
    Not long ago we had a case where a man from Florida kidnapped a 9 year old little girl traped her in his closet for 3 days while raping her, then buried her alive in a dirt hole. She suffocated to death.


    He was sentenced to death.

    We need more executions. I also think we need some form of Eugenetics- the man had an IQ of 78. I don't understand how anybody could think his death sentence is a "sickest extreme"- in fact if slow death by torture was allowed I wouldn't for a second have even the slightest sympathy for this guy.

    Execution serves a purpose, not to deter other criminals or to save tax dollars (in fact it may cost more to execute them), but it is a way to give justice to the families of the victim and the victim him/herself. It's supposed to end the life of the person that committed the crime, instead of allowing him to lounge around in jail watching tv all day and relaxing until he decides to repent.

    I not only agree with the Death Penalty, but I also support bringing back the cane and the belt in schools.
    Kids can get away with anything now, and all they're given is a slap on the wrist, rehabilitation and a criminal record.
    And when they misbehave in school, they're given a punishment essay to do and given two weeks off of school.
    We should go back to the way things were done in the 80's, when there wasn't so much red tape to avoid.
    I also believe that executions should be done publicly, as that would most definately deterr anyone from committing a crime such as pre-meditated murder and rape.
    It worked when it was done in the past....

    This is something I have been giving some thought to since posting this. I have come to the conclusion that I am in favor of capital punishment. However, only in cases where there is no doubt at all of the persons guilt. I also think that if someone is guilty without a doubt and receives a death sentence that the execution should be carried out fairly quickly and no appeals should be given since there is no doubt of guilt. That way the state does not waste too many resources on someone who is just going to be put to death anyhow. I also believe that is should be done as fast and painlessly as possible, just because some of these people are sick does not mean that we must lower ourselves to that same level of sickness.

    Yes I'm in favour, but I'm wary of granting the state power over life and death. I'd much rather the decision be made and executed at a communal level. Also, the death penalty is only tenable, in my view, for the most heinous of criminal acts (serial murder, torture, rape; child murder, rape etc.), i.e. cases where any sign of humanity is lacking. Justifiable murders (such as the killing of a rapist/murderer by a victim's father/mother/brother/sister) shouldn't carry the death penalty, or even a lengthy sentence. Certainty of guilt is also a definite must.

    Whats with liberals being weary of granting the state or our states decision making power? There already is a certainty of guilt in the judicial system(so much so that OJ Simpson was able to make it as far as he did.)

    It's a little reduntant having a legal system in place mainly keeping losers alive, while cracking down on victimless crimes in attempts to "cure" the petty offenders of their vices. Loosen the definition of capital punishment? theres no reason why not. Lets say someone repeatedly steals cars, sells crystal meth or assaults or stalks his ex-wife were put in the lethal injection room for their repeat offenses. This would certainly cleanse our race of impurities alot faster and help lower the population and make our states much more pleasant. Think about it like that guys...

    I'm not necessarily against CP, but I think supporting it goes against several conservative tenets. If people don't trust the government, why would they want to trust it with the God-like power of life and death? What greater example to hold up and say "We have ultimate power over you"? BTW, it is estimated that about 15% of people on death row are likely innocent. DNA evidence has exonerated hundreds of people. Even eyewitness accounts are notoriously inaccurate, and the poor have less access to competent legal support, so the wealthy are more likely to be freed.
    Also, for those espousing Christian ideals, the Bible makes it quite clear, "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord" and "Thou shalt not kill" (no exceptions noted). We kill people to show that killing people is wrong? I just don't know. Maybe bringing back banishment should be an option.

    There's a truth I pointed out earlier, that the wealthy are more likely to be freed. Maybe if we just granted our lower level judicial system with this choice making power instead of the state powers maybe this would hinder this sort of thing from happening.

    Vidar gave us the gift of revenge by avenging his father's death by slaying Fenris. So that we may use it to cull the weak, sadistic and stupid from
    our populations, we shouldn't misuse it by letting the rich get a break nor by using it too sparingly(use it for more than rape+murders.) Killing to show that killing is wrong is not why capital punishment exists.
