I don't believe in capital punishment for any reason, because 1) I am not a murderer, and 2) I believe that those amongst citizens that are are programmed to be traumatized by the most evil creatures, no I don't believe they are human, at least they don't serve humans, on this planet. Those bloodlines are our problem.

The Death penalty does not work , if it did we would have almost no one on death row!
I am not against the death penalty, but I do not like how many have been let out of prison off death row as they found they did not do the crime.
And it cannot be undone. When we get a system that we can trust then we might be about to do something.
I have to wonder how many in China Have been put to death to keep someones tail out of the fire.

I want to move to YOUR neighborhood. Our drug dealers around here are a pretty violent bunch. Not quite up there with Chinese death vans, though.
If they do this for organs donors, do you suppose the organ recipients are aware that there's toxic chemicals in them there organs?

This is the most ugly barbaric crimes against humanity that is imaginable. I don't believe in the death penalty in any case, but for people to apathetically give away their powers and do nothing when the SS Nazis take their own children from them is unbelievable. Nearly 7 billion people don't take out the slave masters at the top? Come on everyone, get real!

Never mind, it's China, the bullet would mis-fire and the garbage bag would get a hole in it.
