Personally, I can't see it getting that bad. There are far too many levels of appeal for capital punishment cases for this to be used as a means of political extermination. Some people on death row are sitting there for decades whilst the try every avenue of appeal...

To all of you against the death penalty.

If you watch the end of this video you'll see there is a very humane, cost effective way to execute a criminal.

The condemned actually goes *out* in a state of euphoria.

What about that? What if the death is almost, pleasant?

Just throwing a question out...

I'd rather see criminals put to good use. I always joked about putting murderers on exercise bikes with electric generators.

There is no definate answer as to whether the death penalty is right or wrong. If a god exists, perhaps he does not care how or why you take a life, but he places you in the same category regardless of how it is performed.

The rich, famous and "elite" can commit any crime they want and go unpunished.

A poor dumb smuck commits the same crime on a smaller scale usually than the above and fries.

Our laws are unfair and unjust.

Only the poor and lower IQ get caught, go to jail and end up executed.

No one should be taking the life of any fellow human.

Mankind excuses his murdeous aggression all in the phony names of God, country, state and war.

Murder is murder.

Makes no difference what excuse is used, the judge who sanctions the "execution" and the person who pulls the switch or administers the lethal cocktail is just as guilty as the people who vote for and pay with their tax money for "legalized murder".

The definition of murder is the taking of another human's life period.

Nobody has the right to take the life of another for any reason.

What about the person or persons who actually committed 9/11 to manipulate the American People into the War in Iraq?

What about the big companies that have made hugh profits from that war?

What about the major banks and financial institutions that have screwed millions out of their hard earned money and indirectly caused many suicides and destroyed families?

These folks have injured humanity on a large scale and go unseen held unaccountable and go unpunished.

I'm not excusing or condoning those individuals that commit horrible crimes but most people in our prisons are small scale thugs that have the misfortune of getting caught because they for the most part have low IQ's and are mentally challenged.

The real thugs are the BIG BOYS are our politicians and heads of corporations.

Know your enemy.

The BIG BOYS are pitting the pions against each other and the average person cannot see who the real monsters are.
