You were not questioning him, you were essentially speaking for him (and everyone else, apparently). And I used "hell-bent" because no argument here seems to dissuade you from wanting the perpetrator's life.

Why not he took someone elses. I am not trying to play god. I just dont see how you would rather the SOB live instead of being punished by death.

Bullshit, you are playing God. Taking the life of others and judging when to do so is not the domain of us ordinary men.

I would rather see the SOB alive, rotting away in prison, knowing that he will never know freedom for the rest of his days, knowing that his life will be dictated to him on someone else's terms for the rest of his days, knowing he will never know the pleasure of a day off, or a vacation, or spending time with his kids at the park, or any of the things that everyone takes for granted. That to me would be a better punishment.

Does killing a murderer bring back the victim?

BINGO! Wait a minute.... aren't you contradicting yourself now?

Your logic is awfully fluid, Justin. Keeping him in prison is not torture. If he were to be beaten daily, that would be torture. Being locked up for life is a suitable punishment for the crime, as we don't want him out in the general population, obviously.

Nope. All I know is if a murderer kills a kid and does more than just stab or shoot the kid. Inject him with as much Death Juice as possible.

Sorry I can't be as Faithful as all of you and follow the Commandments.

Why is the method of death of any consequence? You're still ending a life. Whether you hang em or inject them, you're still killing them.

But then you would cry about his mental instabillity and how its cruel to keep him or her locked up

And why is that wrong when he took the most precious thing from a person in the first place??? Life!!

I find it disturbing when I dont see crowds going to grieve with the family but grieve for a murderer.

Um, how about not assuming how I'd react and stick to logical arguments. My opposition to the death penalty does not mean I have a soft spot for criminals.

Hmmm, I don't know...since you were so keen on bringing God into this earlier, maybe it has something to do with "Thou Shalt Not Kill", not "Thou Shalt Not Kill Unless They Kill Someone First."
