^ then how come the 39 sex offenders living in my area are not in jail?

They served time but, it wasn't life.

Um, murder and sex offenders are two entirely different crimes.

This whole discussion has been based on DP and murder. You can't just start lumping sex offenders in with it...

The person we were discussing and the situation was about a sex offender/murderer.

Our point is not those cases though. It's that in cases where today you would use the death penalty, instead use life without parole. This is an entirely different discussion.

Yes, and the operative word is murderer. The 39 sex offenders in your area are sex offenders, not murderers.

I agree, childkillers should be harshly dealt with by the law.

It boggles my mind, though, that people defend things like this.

You know we can go on and on about this forever, and everyone is going to have their own opinions which is fine.

But, when someone like Jessicas killer or even Megans killer who Megans Law was named after moves into your neigbhorhood maybe people would feel differently.

The molesters in the above cases were guilty molesters first...then they turned into killers.

The debate here wasn't about the jail time for sex offenders. That is an issue, of course, but it doesn't pertain to the death penalty discussion we had. We can discuss it separately, but you were referring to posts about a different topic.

Our duty as a society is respect the rule of law, not be gleeful about an execution and send him to his Maker and let God decide what he is going to do with him.

that doesn't make any sense at all.

vengence can and is exacted on humans by humans.

we're dealing with secular laws in a secular justice system. let's keep it secular, please.

it's amazing that justifications for the death penalty are held on religious grounds -- what if the executed is an atheist? you're so cavalier about sending him to "god" for quicker judgement, it's kind of sick, honestly.
