You will note that I did not say that - that was Gatyr.
 
I do disagree with the death penalty in general, but not because it is always wrong - but rather that it is not always right.
 
But that is independent of the sanctity of life.  Many deaths are necessary and appropriate, but that does not render those deaths any less tragic.

Sometimes you need the stimulation of another person through a thin layer of skin to allow you to complete your objective. Now DVDA on the other hand...that's risky.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

Nein. I'm in the "The death penalty is crap when carried out on people with whom there is a shadow of a doubt" crowd.

Sadaam Hussein and tyrannical dictators of his sort are all good candidates for the death penalty because of the notoriety of their actions/crimes and the sheer amount of incontrovertible evidence that can be placed against them.

The DC sniper doesn't have evidence against him as convincing as was used against Hussein.

I'm generally against the death penalty, as Ben said because of the many cases out there of error.

Sometimes it's not the wrong in the penalty but the flaws in the system. Our justice system (as, I suppose the rest of the world's) is far from perfect, and in many cases the desire to avenge the crime outweighs the need to be 100% accurate.

Probably the most concise way to put it. I concur.

I think it's probably the most palatable way to put it.

Personally, I don't believe in the death penalty.  Period.

Seriously, what's worse, killing someone like Hitler, or shoving a pineapple up their butt every afternoon?

If Harvey Keitel wanted to shove a pineapple up this man every afternoon I would have let him have at it.

Also, I am with PP(or Ben or whatever name he is on). I am not against the death penalty because it is wrong to kill murderers, but because they may not always be guilty.(At least that is what I think he meant)

Killing a single innocent person is enough to make it wrong.

Que pasa?

BG, Gatyr, etc, nevermind me. I thoght Gatyr was stating that it is always wrong and is evil.
 
I believe that the DP is in a large "gray" area. I wouldnt want to make the choice.
 
Although, I believe that if you go on a sniper joyride and begin killing people, the DP is a fair choice.
 
The last soldier given the DP, however, was a young black man who raped an 11 year old girl. Before he was hung, the girl, her family, the soldier, and his family all pled for his life. Kennedy ignored the pleas, and I feel that was wrong.
