Now you've lost me.

ummm, can't the murderer say the exact same thing about the person he kills?

If the punishment for murder is your own execution then by murdering someone you are accepting the terms and conditions of your government and so accepting to be executed. That simple.

If you know what the punishment is for a certain act and you don't like then DON'T DO IT.

Quote:
murder n. the killing of a human being by a sane person, with intent, malice aforethought (prior intention to kill the particular victim or anyone who gets in the way), and with no legal excuse or authority. In those clear circumstances, this is first degree murder. By statute many states make killings in which there is torture, movement of the person (kidnapping) before the killing, as an incident to another crime (as during a hold-up or rape), and the death of a police officer or prison guard all first degree murders with or without premeditation, and with malice presumed. Second degree murder is such a killing without premeditation, as in the heat of passion or in a sudden quarrel or fight. Malice in second degree murder may be implied from a death due to the reckless lack of concern for the life others (such as firing a gun into a crowd, or bashing someone with any deadly weapon). Depending on the circumstances and state laws, murder in the first or second degree may be chargeable to a person who did not actually kill, but was involved in a crime with a partner who actually did the killing or someone died as the result of the crime. (Example: In a liquor store stick-up in which the clerk shoots back at the hold-up man and kills a bystander, the armed robber can be convicted of at least second degree murder. To be murder the victim must die within a year of the attack. Death of an unborn child who is "quick" (fetus is moving) can be murder, provided there was premeditation, malice, and no legal authority. Thus, abortion is not murder under the law. (Example: Jack Violent shoots his pregnant girlfriend, killing the fetus). Manslaughter, both voluntary and involuntary, lacks the element of malice aforethought.

How does the executioner have respect for human life when he is actively taking one? That's not respecting the human life of the person he is killing.

Look, I don't care what a person has done. I don't care about what their social status is, what's in their past, what their job is. What I care about is a basic respect for human life and a belief that we are better than murderers, and accordingly do not need to stoop to their level in order to remove or lessen the threat to society.

Absolutely. It's very inconsistent and barbaric.

It's based on revenge, nothing more.

i'm sure that if you asked saddam, he would tell you that he never murdered anyone, only executed people in a just way.

justin, these kinds of statements show that you don't understand what we are trying to tell you here, at all.

Well done, you have proven you understand next to nothing about the mind of those who commit murder and their socio-economic conditions. For example, many murderers have rather below average intelligence, either due to a lack of educational provisions in their childhood or due to mental dysfunctions, and thus they do not fully comprehend the gravity what they are doing, let alone the consequences. How is it just to kill such a person? Why not place them in prison so that they may receive the education and other services they require to hopefully make them functioning and capable members of society? Why is execution preferable?
