Sorry, I forgot about the Communists and the Hindus executing people. So because they do it you think you are justified in following their example?
edit on 22/6/2011 by Kryties because: (no reason given)


I think that every single murderer, terrorist, paedophile, rapist and traitor should be hanged, and the crack of their neck breaking and their muffled cries and wimpers should be broadcast across the country on loudspeakers.

I am all for speedy sentencing being carried out. Time to stop wasting my tax dollars trying to figure out how to manipulate the system so you don't have to die like your victim! I like the Bahamas stance. If you are convicted on Friday, you die on Monday. We could learn from this!

And I think every person who advocates the death of other people as 'punishment' should also suffer the same - see how they like it. Bet they change their tune then.

Quite simply, a life sentence in prison allays the fear of endless appeals and stops the waste of tax dollars. Quite apart from the fact that it is proven that executions cost more than imprisonment......blowing the 'tax dollars' argument out of the water.

Imagine a 40 year old man brutally murdering then raping the body of your youngest child. I bet you wouldn't be so self righteous and liberal then.

If you want to spend millions of your own cash keeping these social parasites alive, then so be it, but I'd rather have the cheap, neck breaking option.

I find it hard to believe that a prisoner spending 50 years in jail is less expensive then one bullet out on the shooting range. 50 years of meals, 3 times a day, say at $2 meal (cheap side) equals to over $100,000 in tax dollars on 1 guy just to eat.

Why even spend money on a bullet? Hanging is a free option and requires no financial expenditure outside of fitting one room in a jail to be the chamber with a trapdoor and hook, and the occasional replacement rope.

Read the thread - I have posted links to the proof twice now.

But here it is again for the third time - maybe people will learn to read threads eh?

Capital Punishment Costs More Than Life in Prison Without Parole

North Carolina spends $2.16 million per execution more than the costs of a non-death penalty murder case.

Florida has spent around $57 million on the death penalty for just 18 executions. This averages to about $3.2 million per execution.

In Texas, the death penalty costs an average of $2.3 million per execution, three times more expensive than imprisoning someone in a single cell at the highest security level for 40 years.

The State of Ohio spent $1.5 million to execute a mentally retarded man who wanted to be executed.

California spends $90 million annually on the death penalty over the costs of their regular system. $78 million of that money is spent at the trial level, proving that the death penalty costs come almost completely from the trial level. Not the appeals process, like everyone thinks it does.


To execute or not: A question of cost?
States discover it's cheaper to imprison killers for life than to execute them


After decades of moral arguments reaching biblical proportions, after long, twisted journeys to the nation's highest court and back, the death penalty may be abandoned by several states for a reason having nothing to do with right or wrong:

Money.

Turns out, it is cheaper to imprison killers for life than to execute them, according to a series of recent surveys. Tens of millions of dollars cheaper, politicians are learning, during a tumbling recession when nearly every state faces job cuts and massive deficits.

So an increasing number of them are considering abolishing capital punishment in favor of life imprisonment, not on principle but out of financial necessity.

"It's 10 times more expensive to kill them than to keep them alive," though most Americans believe the opposite, said Donald McCartin, a former California jurist known as "The Hanging Judge of Orange County" for sending nine men to death row.


Blows the money argument right out of the water and leaves the shotgun-toting psychopaths realing and searching for other excuses to justify their beloved death penalty.

It's not that nobody is reading your links, it's just that you are heavily outnumbered by advocates and your responses/opinions are worthless.

look folks I don't like the idea of my tax dollars going to housing a murderer any more than the rest of you...

However....

executing this man... this mental child... what message does it send???? how is his death forwarding justice????
Will he even understand why their sticking a needle in his arm??? Is prison even the right place for him or should he have been sent to a high security mental hospital????

Frankly I don't like this guy nor what he did... but the humanity in me makes me question the entire process...
clearly he is a danger but what message do we send to the rest of the world... We Kill Retards... Hitler did that too ya know

Absolutely, nothing like delivering the ultimate justice to the worst examples of human scum. All in the knowledge that it keeps bleeding heart liberals like you in a constant state of anger.

I think it's more that you're seeing the proof but burying your heads in the sand because it doesn't gel with your psychopathic tendancies.

Well thats because the whole judicial system is messed up. Only in the good ole USA does it cost over a million dollars to execute a murderer. It also costs $100,000 for a toilet seat. Don't you see the issue here. 1 rope or 1 bullet can realistically take care of the issue for under $5. Under new law of murder for a murder there would be no appeals, no lawyers, no nothing. You kill someone you die. Lets do the math under the new law & see how much it costs then:

50 inmates executed by bullet for murder. $5/bullet - $250...not bad...let's see what life sentance will bring.

50 inmates serving life sentences for murder. Avg sentance 35 years we'll say. Like I used prior we'll just say on average it's $2/day for everything to take care of the inmate. This includes food, healthcare, etc. The total bill comes out to $1.2 million or approx $25,000 per inmate.

Yep, that sexual overtone is flowing out of your posts now. 'Frying Retards' seems to be the new pornographic magazine for some people.
