That's a bit... gruesome. What is it that you like about capital punishment?

I feel that it is a good deterent and punishment for the serious crimes.  The finality of it is bad for wrongful convictions of course.  But it saves the taxpayers dollars from being used for keeping the scum of the earth alive.

Actually the way it is currently in most states, the process of putting someone to death, along with all the legal appeals and everything else, putting someone to death is in many cases more expensive than life imprisonment. It usually takes about 20-25 years to execute someone in some states. I believe only Texas and maybe Utah, have a speedy system for dealing with capitol punishment. Don't get me wrong, I think it is something that can be a good deterrant to serious crimes when used properly and speedily, but most states sadly do not use it correctly enough to make it a serious deterrant to crime.

Personally i agree with it.  Some crimes are so heinous their is no other answer for it.  Sadly its not cheaper then keeping them alive and whats worse history proves its a lousy deterrent.  As several historians I've known often loved to point out in the times when pick pocketing was an offense punishable by public hanging pick pockets regularly worked the crowd watching the hanging.

    Picking pockets is definately not a crime I would consider a Capital offense, however the serious crime like murder and such I would. I would place violent serial rapists in this catagory, and those truely horrible crimes that cause serious long term effects where someone effectively ends someone elses life. I do believe that there must be intent shown, as well as a good possibility that the criminal is likely to be a repeat offender. Personally I am for a system that uses the eye for an eye type punishment, but that is me. I believe in forgiveness, but genuine repentance is necessary for this to move forward. Many criminals are very sorry they got caught and what they did was not better covered up, but not necessarily sorry for what they did. They may cry and ask to be forgiven but not mean it. In the eyes of the law there must be strong and fair punishment for crimes, whether we forgive them or not.
