    In Kansas we have a rather clever technique.

    What we do is kill you slowly by the ravages of stressful appeals processes as well as old age.

    Not to mention that you're stuck in Kansas while those appeals go on!

    That's half the beauty of it. Of course that is also slowly killing everyone else as well.

    I would have no problem being the one to dish out the punishment! I'd give anything to be the one to deal out the death to the sick transient that kidnapped,tortured and raped my daughter when she was 7 years old!! She's alive but so is he and I'm sure he did it again after he got out of prison!!

    Some crimes simply need to be dealt with by killing the offender. He spent an extra year past his original sentence time due to his denying he did it even after being caught with her the next day! Saying you're innocent doesn't make it so. Seeing that no one else suffers at their hands needs to be a priority. Can't fix child kidnappers/rapists and setting them free to do it again is pure stupidity on our parts,IMO.
    He got OUT!? I would have thought that the combination of the crimes you listed against anyone, but especially a 7 year old would have come with a life sentence...guess not

    I agree with you as to me a crime against a child is unforgiveable. It was in 1984 so that may have a little to do with it. He pled guilty and was sentenced to 7 years. In that 7 years he went up before the parole board 3 times. He denied his guilt each time and ended up serving a year longer than he was given due to his denial and attitude. He was 43 at the time. I will never forget his name and hope he's dead by now.

    I love the state I live in but Wyoming doesn't seem to punish as severly as other states and this town alone has 7 registered sex offenders living here,none which are from here! This state does the honor farm and "boot camp" thing and few male offenders actually go to the state penn anymore. Why?





    I have to quit saying "How stupid can you be?" Some people are taking it as a challenge!

    I personally do not want legal execution of any type.It should be abolished in modern days.Killing for killing is never a good option.

    We don't kill for the fun of it. It's a punishment doled out for only the most abhorrent violators and for the most extreme crimes.

    You, of course, are entitled to your opinion.

    Realize however that this is a law enforcement related forum where many of the members have been exposed to some abhorrent behavior/criminals and many of us have strong pro death penalty stances.

    I'm good with this. Under one condition: they stop killing citizens and the government will stop killing them.

    If they accept the terms so do I.

    America doesn't have a gun problem, we have a violence problem. people here will gleefully bash, stab, burn, strangle and poison each other IF they didn't have a "gun". for the rest of us who are SANE, and respectful of ourselves and neighbors, you already know there will never be an issue of worrying about whether some one is put to death under the rules of the state.

    For those who feel its okay to wantonly murder people like school aged tykes, hard working taxi drivers, retired grannies, or fight and kill gov't officials like police officers, I have NO sympathy. If the killing happened out of unintentional negligence or by cruel accident, thats one thing-sympathy can be applied in those instances.

    But Gang bangers who drive by and shoot at people? serial predators who rape and murder co-eds? spouses more concerned with insurance pay outs than fixing a broken relationship?

    vdfnco, we all know that what you posted is the plain and honest truth....

    Right, wrong, or otherwise, studies have shown capital punishment makes for a very low recidivism rate. In fact, I would honestly say it is the closest thing we have to a cure for some scum.

    Correct! The death penalty undoubtedly keeps us safe from recidivist predators. As far as "curing" certain types of criminal behavior, such as child mollestors or rapists, there is only one cure. A bullet. A rope. A couple thousand volts. I'm not sentimental about certain things.

    It's an alternative option. The party to be executed would need to request it over lethal injection for it to ever be used.

    Too bad that it costs more to actually execute them.

    It bothers me when people who are for capital punishment pretend it's for fiscal reasons. I don't get these libertarian constitutionalists who are also apparently big lawmen. Everybody I know who's that far to the right doesn't even think the government should have the right to execute anybody in the first place.

    I don't really care what method they use, as long as it's cheap and quick. Set up a good efficient system and death rows nationwide could finally make room for the next batch. Should be done by lunchtime.

    Let's bring back gladiatorial games with a twist. Put all the inmates in an arena, give them their drug of choice and their weapon of choice as they enter. Free for all, to the death, last man standing gets charged with mass murder and executed on the spot.

    I say build a 20' high concrete fence with landmines all around the state of....i dunno....say, New Mexico...... and ship in all the surplus bazookas, tanks, LAWS rockets, guns, grenades and knives they could possibly use. Lock the gate and give it to them. Everyone convicted for anything after that - goes to New Mexico forever - or as long as they can live.
