Abortion is acceptable in some cases.Some do use it for the wrong reasons.If it`s tenage pregnancy and can`t afford its okay or the persons gets raped and falls pregant.Otherwise wrap it up and accept responsability for your negligence
So a guy fatally shoots a cop. Then shoots himself in the head. But he doesn't die. He becomes mentally handicapped as a result of his injury. Goes to court. Court says death penalty. But no dice, he's mentally handicapped. So he spends his life in jail. Tried for parole a few times so far... nothing yet (crossing fingers). I kinda think he should have gotten the death penalty. But what do you think?
But what if you were the cop's family member and saw the man in public? Do you think it to be fair that the man who killed your uncle was out free? Often emotions takes precedent over tax money when you're involved in the situation.
Well, there wouldn't be a "fairness" on either side. He can sit in prison for the rest of his life or get executed (either way costs a lot of money) while a truly hardened criminal gets a light sentence because there is no money or room for him.
In California last year, they let 20,000 prisoners go on early release because they couldn't afford to keep them in prison. That's more scary to me than to let a mentally challenged murderer go back to his family.
We need to be thankful for DNA technology.. it will help alleviate conviction of innocents in the future. As far as the $$$$$$ lawsuits by the innocents.. how much is a year of our life worth? and then multiplied by the number of years robbed from them? Maybe our judicial system needs a makeover??? As far as the actual guilty, sentenced to death.. turn them over to the families of their victims. I'm sure they'd take care of it free of charge. (It's easy to take the 'no-kill' attitude when the victim isn't your child or loved one)
I agree in the use of 'capital punishment', but not in the way it is used.
I don't agree with inmates sitting and awaiting execution for 20+ years......it shouldn't take that long to carry out a sentence.
I also don't agree on the prison situation, as is....3.6 Million criminals who are convicted of crimes against humanity should be treated better than the homeless people who are forced to live out in the streets because they can not afford to 'pay' a specific prices for accomodations.
All inmates are given food, shelter, clothes, TV/Cable and other benefits, while millions scourge garbage cans for food or shelter.
I'm definitely against the death penalty, I don't think anyone has the right to take away the life of another. Whoever they are. I agree with Uninvited Writer ... what happens if you kill someone who is actually innocent?
I am also fairly sure that for many, life imprisonment would actually be worse than death. I just wish that when people were given 'life' in prison, it actually meant life in prison. Not 14 years and then parole or watever.
The rigidity of the law is the problem. While there remain clear cut examples where the death penalty is suitable, and also clear cut examples where it has been prescribed incorrectly, the law needs to dictate one way or the other.
For me, I'd rather let some murderers live in jail than accidentally kill innocent people.
a life for a life .its not acceptable but its a right.my idea on this is that it should be the victims family's choice and responsibility to carry this penalty out .for a government that kills on a wholesale manner at war many of those being lives of innocence . thats unacceptable to me . but if someone murders my child the goverment should make way for me to carry out true justice.in this way blood is on my hands only not other americans that do not belive in the practice. when our nation kills we kill we are all complict in it
to repeat if someone takes the life with intent of my loved ones . its my intent to kill them back publicly and in the most brutal of way. in no way is it acceptable . nor right . its not about justice. its not about revenge. its about punishment.
The biggest problem with the death penalty is. How could you live with killing even 1 innocent person. We should build more prisons and not let the violent criminals out. I can never understand how they can let out a sex offender that they think will do it again.
