Do you know why it is cheaper to support an inmate for life then execution? Because the lawyers wrote laws that allow for a million appeals that lawyers make big money off of.
Plus, if you worry about innocent people might be executed, then they should not get life without parole because they may be innocent
Well here's the thing about that, if the person turns out to be innocent they can let him go or appeal. Even with a life time without parole, at least that's how it works in the uk where am from.
capitol punishment is the death sentence
It isn't. Corporal is bodily. Capitol is the Capitol Hill, Washington DC.Capital punishment is meant to be the death sentence, except it clearly is punishment by taking away the capital (if all of one's capital is taken you could say it is like death, but the words are mis-ascribed)
I don't think anybody actually cares that much
Most serious people do. All people that make serious decisions do, intensely and intently
I agree with that, I'm usually against it but the world would just be better off without people who do that stuff
agreed. I know if some person raped my child (dont have any kids right now) there would not be enough left for the cops to find.. I would take the law into my own hands. People that harm children are the ones i feel should simply be put to death.
If some one rapes and murders your wife or daughter wouldn't that warrant the death penalty?
@Cicero79 That is called revenge and it's justified the death penalty for ages. There probably are some that deserve to die, rather than spend the rest of their lives living off the state. The daughter of my minister graduated high school with honors. Was accepted to college and with her whole world ahead of her, was there for less than a year when, while hitchhiking, was abducted and murdered. I was involved with the search for her, (she had been one of my students in Senior Class of Sunday School. We eventually found her and he was arrested. His sentence was 20 to life. He would be able to get out in 7 with good behavior. Every year that he came up for parole, the entire church family testified against him. I read last year that, after 40 years in prison, he died. I would rather someone suffer the rest of their lives without freedom.
So you want a person to suffer in prison but not be executed. If you want a person to suffer your are not much of a Christian.Also, now I understand why you are Anti death penalty
@Cicero79 If you want to get strict about it, we should "turn the other cheek" and let them go if they say they're sorry. A structured life behind bars to prevent them from harming any more innocent civilians is a far more humane sentence.
One of my mothers neighbors was murdered by her boyfriend.He got out of prison the year before. He served 20 years for killing his own father.My point being is if the guy was executed for murdering his father the woman would still be alive.
@Cicero79 First, he should never have been released. Murdering someone ceases their right to exist. If we do the same thing we save the state the cost of incarceration but that is made up for by the cost of court fees, lawyers, and appeals for 20 years or more.
