    Do you think Ariel Castro, the kidnapper of the 3 women in Cleveland, should get the death penalty?

    I know that's not legally possible, but if it were, would you support it?

    I think life in prison would be good for him. In Texas, he would be someone's woman. Just what he did to them will be done to him. Well deserved. But death penalty sounds good too.

    Death penalty is typical of places with barbaric government like Iran or China.
    When you kill a murderer you are not better than him any more.

      Barbaric governments like Iran or China? Last time I check, US in one of the countries in which death penalty is legal.

      I agree with your last argument.

      @IslandBites - Many people here are from the USA. 
      I didn't want to offend anyone. 
      BTW, if Americans accept a crticism, they should rethink in many aspects their relationship with violence.

    I believe death penalty is not an option ever. Not even in the worst crimes. I think no man has the right to take any other man's life. Think of the possibilities of being wrong (I'm not saying its is the case). A grat movie on this subject is "The life of David Gale".

    Whatever keeps him away from contact with the public for the rest of his life, however long that may be.
    Executions generally cost more than lifetime imprisonment.

    He didn't kill anybody so i would say no, save the death penalty for those who seek to take the lives of others for no other reason than they like doing it.
    A fitting sentence would be 30yrs.

      From what I heard he beat the girls when he got them pregnant until they miscarried.  I guess they are trying for the death penalty for that-saying he murdered the babies.

      he actually killed the babies. In some states that is illegal and its murder.
      Remember the case a few years ago with Scott (forget his last name) he killed his pregnant wife by drowning them,he was charged with 2 counts of murder

    I agree with Iburmaster, life in prison will do him good, he will meet his fate there. He threw the boomerang and now it is coming back ten fold.

    They will have a ball with him in prison. Those big drug dealers and gang members dont take anything from anyone and they hate sex offenders, rapists, murders, abuse of children and woman. He pretty much did them all. So no one will have any pity on him.

    I have been saying quite a bit now, how ironic is this, he posts on his fb page, so I been told to the fact that God is good, there really are miracles. What a psycho.

    I guess God read his wish. Careful what you wish for.

    Life with Bubba and all his buddies.  I think they are trying for the Death Penalty.  From what I heard on the news, he got them pregnant.  The one who escaped had a child.  But I heard that he beat the girls until they miscarried their babies.  I am not really sure how many times this happened over the 10 year period and it might be considered to be a death penalty case in the state since the woman was unwilling to abort her child.

    I would support the death sentence, laws change, imagine if he managed to get out one day? here is an example of a change in law releasing violent criminals. http://www.newsobserver.com/2009/10/16/ … olent.html

      I remember the case of Susan Smith-lady who drowned her 2 boys she got life rather than the death penalty because she would not be a threat to society if she ever gets out.

      @LoisRyan13903 - And do you really believe that deth penalty is a smart way to avoid potential threats to society? Not just a display of revenge?

    No, absolutely not. If he was put to death, his punishment is over. No more suffering, no more nothing. He would have access to a priest before being put to death (assuming he's Catholic) and has the opportunity for absolution, so all is forgiven. Much better that he should live out his days in prison. He can be sentenced to prison without parole, but even if he wasn't, the chances of him actually getting out on parole are minimal. It doesn't happen as often as the media makes us believe it does.

    I live in Cleveland, and this has been all over the news, as if nothing else has happened in the last week, and you can't even drive down the main street (w. 25th St.) near there because of all the satellite trucks. The prosecutor said he will seek the death penalty for him allegedly causing the women to miscarry, though I don't know if that's considered murder under Ohio law.

      Not sure but as u mentioned-my husband says they are over-killing the story.  Still 3 innocent lives were shattered and hope they pull out of it fine.
