How can anyone opposed to the death penalty call himself a Christian? Obviously, the death penalty was put on Earth by God and to oppose it is to oppose God's will. Think back to the good old days when the Church used the death penalty quite effectively. Going back further still, if the Romans had not made such good use of the death penalty there would be no Christianity. Am I right, OSECS?
The Romans understood that the death penalty is the best way to demonstrate to the people how to be tough on crime. Only Republicans truly understand this. Sadly, the death penalty is only a deterrent if it is carried out often as reminder that it is there. American justice looks incompetent next to China, Saudi Arabia and Iran, countries that execute death sentences quickly and efficiently without all the machinations and motions of due process.
Fortunately, Rick Perry knows and understands how to use government’s guillotine even if it means possibly executing innocents because his supporters love him for it. As one of them so eloquently put it, “It takes balls to execute an innocent man.”

Seriously though. There are too many fucking cops, and if we are having this converation they are obviously not stopping the murders. Should we just kill them too? Then we don't have to pay their pensions.

As Socrates once said, "'Crito, we owe a cock to Asclepius. Do pay it. Don't forget"

What nobody wants to talk about is innocent people, mistakes.
We don't look, no real effort has ever been made to see if any of these guys were actually innocent. Logic tells you we probably have, shit, a number of guys have been really really close.
We never want to ask ourselves if one innocent man's life is worth feeling better about what 50 or 100 or 1000 shitbags did ?
Additionally I still don't see why people are arguing about the morality of the thing. If you think its a great thing for society that's fine but you still have to have a system that is at its basic level just and fair and bottom line we don't.
No state should be doing it at all because every single person knows the system is arbitrary at best and that isn't what the justice system is all about. You want the death penalty fine but you need a system that isn't complete and utter horseshit.You're gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker donts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?

Or maybe just a hot chick to spin the "wheel of death" with all types of ancient execution styles? At least that would add some entertainment (and advertising revenue?!)
Think about it - Jill Wagner telling someone they're about to be submersed in water in a sack, which also contains a dog, a rooster, a viper and an ape...

To take care of this.
On Saturday, authorities announced they had arrested a neighbor, Shawn Morgan. Morgan, 43, told agent Tim Trowbridge of the Bootheel Drug Task Force that he found the child on a ladder in his backyard pool, grabbed her and carried her inside his home, where he suffocated her with a white plastic trash bag, according to a probable cause statement the agent filed.
Morgan told Trowbridge it "felt like it took an hour for the girl to die," according to the statement. He did not say why he killed the child.People should learn endurance; they should learn to endure the discomforts of heat and cold, hunger and thirst; they should learn to be patient when receiving abuse and scorn; for it is the practice of endurance that quenches the fire of worldly passions which is burning up their bodies.

^^^ In cases like that he should just be shot in the head. On the spot.
No trial. No jury. Just done.

Not into the "eye-for-an-eye" thing. I don't think we should have the Death Penalty for a single murder unless it's of a child. Shit - you rape and kill a kid I'll shoot you myself and feel great about it. Jer, can I borrow a weapon?
