    If and individual is to be executed, it better be crystal fucking clear that he or she is guilty of what he or she's being executed for... at the bare minimum.

    I think it's well-worth supporting.

    Cases like these are exactly why I oppose the death penalty.

    Same here.
    If you could guarantee only the guilty get it, then I'd be all for it, but that just isn't practical.

    The death penalty is Old Testament.

    If you're a Christian, you follow the New Testament instead which states, "it has been said an eye for an eye. But I say love your enemies."

    Later on, Jesus goes on to say that "he who has not sinned should cast the first stone."


    I guess we all have our own opinions. I'll follow the Lord's.

    I used to be strongly against the death penalty as I would always say that no one has the right to take anyone else's life - for no reason.

    Then I read about a few cases involving mass murder, violent rape/murder, mutilation, etc... the raping and killing of children... and the emotional response in me was: "The fucker deserves to die a painful death after doing what he/she did."

    Now... logically and morally I'm still against the death penalty, but in some cases... I wonder.

    It is crystal clear that Troy Davis deserves a retrial and re-examination of the case... Please appeal to GA leaders about it...

    Ya, no death penalty makes perfect sense. We catch a mass murderer that has no compunctions about killing, we lock him up so he can just kill guards when ever given the chance or other inmates.

    No death penalty means that for life in prison people there is absolutely NO further punishment you can give them if they decide to murder or main other prisoners or guards.

    Great plan.

    By the way? Government is not a person. And Jesus also said to give to Government that which is theirs.
