Correct and thanks. I attended a neighborhood party back in 2016, I met a retired Special Agent with the Department of State who claims he was an expert on Putin. We shared stories. He then asked me whether I worked out of Langley or Fort Meade. I said "neither" as I was in another program.

What's the crime that justifies the death penalty?

It's almost funny.

We have conservatives who support the death penalty but oppose abortion.

And we have leftists who oppose the death penalty but support abortion.

You're all f# hypocrites. How about we try not killing anyone, hm?

Yea, I'm sure your house will get raided if you say what crime you think people have committed recently.

Go to bed.

It wasn't directed at you, but since you volunteered:

How do you, personally, determine who's killable and who isn't?

I'm betting it's entirely subjective, and based on nothing but your feeeelings.

...I'm prettt sure you just compared a murderous criminal with intent to an innocent child still in development.

That isn't being a hypocrite.

Innocent people are executed all the time.

And you need to look up what "hypocrite" means.

Too many people are on the loose taking murder to the next level these days, especially MS13 when they lop of peoples heads. Then you have ongoing Treason. I assume that you are aware that we are at war in this country. Also toss in ANTIFA and stir.

Treason? like who you feel should be executed?

As for murder, the death penalty doesn't effect the murder rate, it's a revenge thing..and I get it sometimes.


Not revenge, punishment.

Meanwhile countries that have outlawed the death penalty and focus on rehabilitation have a much lower recidivism rate.

Instead here in the US we have turned prisons in to a for-profit business. And people are still surprised that we have the highest prison population in the world?


No surprise to me... The problem is that our prisons are relaxed and officers are fired if a complaint is filed against them so they all walk on eggshells. Other countries aren't so relaxed and they treat their prisoners like prisoners. When you get the # kicked out of you for talking back to officers, you want to get out and never go back, therefore obeying the law.

Do you know the difference between an innocent child and a serial killer or do you see them as equals?

Is there a difference between an innocent man and an innocent child?

Can you guarantee innocent people won't lose their lives at the hands of the state?

No. You can't.

One has had their chance and demonstrated they aren't trustworthy or valuable enough to retain the blessing of life, the other hasn't even had a chance yet. It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to realize there's a huge difference between executing someone who has already proven themselves to be filth and not even giving someone the opportunity to succeed or fail.

And what of innocent people who are murdered by the state?

You guys are assuming the person being executed actually committed the crime, when we know for a fact innocent people are routinely executed due to flaws and/or corruption in the legal system.

Are you guys ok with innocent people being murdered by the government?

That would at least be a consistent position if you happen to be pro-abortion.

Someone told me that cost more to execute a criminal than it does to have him on death row. Is that true?

I heard it's typically in the millions because of legal fees to seek it.
