    If someone killed your family in your presence Knowing the Connecticut state government has just repeal it's death penalty, and you had the person held at gun point.
    Would you
    A. wait for the police to arrive to take them away.
    B. Blow their ass away knowing that you did kill a murder and knowing that you will never face the death Penalty.
    Me I would kill the bastard where they stood and wait before I called 911 to make sure they were dead.

    But the repeal wouldn't be a lifeline for the state's 11 Death Row inmates, including two men who killed a woman and two children in a horrifying home invasion supporters touted as a key reason to keep the law on the books. The state Senate debated for hours Thursday about whether the law would reverse those sentences before voting 20-16 to repeal the law.

    The Death Penalty is archaic and the US is one of the few civilized nations to keep the practice. The rest of the world looks at us as savages

    Who doesn't have a death penalty? All of Europe, Russia, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia

    Who has it? Those savage Islamic countries, China, India.......and of course, the US

    I would hold them for police whether there was a death penalty or not. New Jersey abolished the death penalty three years ago

    Highly improbable situations are designed to bring out emotions; IF I saw my family killed, yet somehow while not able to protect them, was able to kill the person(s) who I KNEW killed them, I would probably also kill. I hope not, but the question is so loaded, it is difficult to respond to, without raw emotion.

    Knowing that your family is dead and the murders will still be alive with a very good chance of getting parole? And no way you could be given the death penalty? I see how much value you place on your loved ones.

    It's not a loaded question. I heard Connecticut will more than likely repeal it's death penalty, and got me to thinking Why should I allow some bastard to live when I knew they killed my family and they would never get the justice they deserve. Hell yes I would take the hit if I ever faced that situation.
