Now if I actually did not do the crime

I would go with the death penalty if the prosecutors would be charged with attempted murder if the accused is acquitted.
The same as accusing somebody of treason.. You call it, you better prove it, or you are guilty of a crime....That would shut most of you here up wouldnt it?

I disagree. If someone behaves like a barbarian and is removed from this life for it, that is justice and actually (if consistently applied and successful in avoiding being mucked up by bleeding hearts) does lead to less crime.

So at the end of the day, the only real reason anyone could possibly support the death penalty, is because of pure spite... and spite is not a form of justice in a civilized society.

I am against killing humans in general. I realize it is unpopular here, but the fact remains only barbarians should be killing other people. Not Planned Parenthood, not the Government, not society. The only scenario where killing is justified (in my opinion) is self-defense.

Capital punishment doesn't deter crime.
But I will agree that some people don't deserve to be breathing.

Can't punish a dead person?
The punishment is making a living person no longer a living person...
Now I gotta ask. How do you punish drug offenders if not prison?
I'm all for easing some drug laws but as it stands there are people breaking drug laws.
