SarahAnneBower Killing anyone is wrong no matter who does it. We have executed more than just a few that were innocent so how does that not constitute murder? Jesus came and said we had it wrong and to follow his message instead of the old message but we still follow the old message and warp his message of peace and love for all. I am not opposed to incarcerating these certain individuals for life. It seems doing life in solitary confinement is a way worse punishment than death anyway.
LadyLuck13 @robeleader- oh I wasn't aware that the Old Testament Jews were the ones who were allowed to practice that.
robeleader @LadyLuck13 - You don't eat shellfish then, right? You don't speak in Church either, right? Do the men you know shave? Shame on them if they do, because the old testament (where you get eye for an eye from) is strictly against shellfish, pork, women speaking in church and people shaving.
robeleader The State murders enough people already, I think we should relax on killing everyone (either via police, drone strikes or other random acts of government violence).

mktgsurinternet Kiiling willingly someone is a crime.
That's still true even if the victim is a murderer. Period.
hereisacake There should be random jury duty except for executioners. I think we'd have a much lower rate of capital punishment if random citizens were called in to flip the switch. And not one of those "10 people do it, only one switch works, that way you all share the burden" type deals but one person and one switch and you have to stay and watch the whole thing. It might make people think about the fact that they're murdering someone more than when it's out of sight and mind.
