The fascists in the Christian Coalition and all the conservatives and leftists who get riled up when they find something objectionable can stuff it.
I couldn't agree more here.

Not really. I certainly don't respect these people's choices to behave that way, and I'm compleley horrified that these homeless people were brutalized, but I do believe in impartial protection of human rights.

Exactly. I can't figure out what point he's making, or if he's even making a point.

I meant support as in not wanting these People who butchered others to remain alive.

I agree with this statement by A_Wanderer.

The fascists in the Christian Coalition and all the conservatives and leftists who get riled up when they find something objectionable can stuff it.

You have to sides the left and right. One who thinks it's wrong to have people see violence, sex both heterosexual and Homosexual. On the other hand you have a group who says its ok.
Which can confuse a young person who then can commit a crime. So if they are blaming TV, Movies, Music, and Video Games, they should look at themselfs.

Why do you equate refusing to take any human life with support for criminals? That's a weird definition of 'support'.

Criminals are still human. You haven't been to CA over at San Quinten where thousands of people hold signs wishing and praying that he or she recieves Clemency. But you dont see thousand of people crying and being there for the victims family.

Taking away another human life because that person did doesn't lessen the pain that the loved one is gone.

Let's follow some logic here? Why would we kill people who kill other people to show people that killing people is wrong? Wouldn't that make us just as bad as the criminal?

And, as far as the question....I have never seen, heard, nor read of anyone that left an execution saying, "I am so glad that happened, a great load has been lifted and my pain over my loss has come to a closure!"

You execute someone to set an example. Which is Murder is wrong, we wouldn't execute people if you didn't kill. How is life in prison any better?

Can you? When ever there is a scheduled execution, you have thousands of people outside the gates of the prison including nothing better to do movie stars. Where is the support for the familys, remember the person they are executing took the lives of innocent people and detroyed familys
