Because freedom can't protect itself
I smell bullshit.
Of course that odor is caused by insane left-wing, anti-American liberal policies.
Maybe more niggers get the death penalty because more niggers commit murders. Duh!
More Afro Americans get the death penalty because lots of people agree with Liberal Hater but don't have the guts to admit it.
I guess "liberal hater"'s statement speaks volumes about the hatred and intolerance we are fighting. wow!
The speach on the death penalty by Senator Raymond Lasniak reeks with his ignorance of the subject. Senator Lasniak is incapable of understanding the use of the death penalty because his talk reveals that he does not understand justice either. You will notice that he does not mention the word once. To execute criminals is both the right and duty of a lawfully constituted government. Some mistakenly think that to not apply the death penalty to murderers demonstrates that a society is advanced and sophisticated. Actually it is evidence against it, that it is morally decadent and backward. I could say much more, but will put down my pen. Thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion. HW
Thank goodness for the ACLU. It even enables the self-proclaimed haters of the world, like "liberal hater," to have Freedom of Speech!" This is a group I can go for, even if I sometimes disagree with them. (I wouldn't enable "liberal hater" at all! If it were up to me, I would stifle his Freedom of Speech. Groups like the ACLU are there for him. )
These aren't small time crinimals guys. To make death row you are a murderer.You are a danger to society, and to keep you alive is cruel to those who would become a victim or a loved one of a victim who have not done anything wrong.
Yes but how can you justify the death penalty? If you kill the murderer how can you expect to tell everyone that murder and killing is wrong? Thats a total double standard! Executing the murderer is NOT going to bring his/her victim(s) back! The capital punishment is barbaric and violates the No Cruel and unusual punishment ammendment in the U.S Bill of Rights. We, as citizens, need to give up the "eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" way of life.
