Not necessarily my POV.
Three types of people come to mind that do deserve it...a murder, a rapist, and a pedophile. Sorry I am a cold hearted person when it comes to those type of people.
Certain people deserve to be killed... I agree with LP above. Those types need to be removed from society.
But some who have never worked a day in their life would love it. No worries, other than getting raped or killed there.
I'm reminded of a Robin Williams joke..
A nuclear bomb is a man's way of saying, "I'm gonna fuck up the earth." A woman would never make a nuclear bomb. They would never make a weapon that kills. They'd make a weapon that makes you feel bad for a while...
Of course certain people deserve to be killed. Who can believe that people like Hitler, mass serial killers, pedophiles who kill their victims, characters like Bin Laden, or those who do their bidding, shouldn't be put to death?
My thinking on this topic is inconsistent, which is a problem for me. I'm not sure how to resolve it. Anyway..
I do not believe in the death penalty, mostly because I think it's inevitable that the state put an innocent person to death.
However, there are also people who have committed acts that make killing them justified. I sometimes wondered what I would have done if I had ever somehow come across Osama Bin Laden after 9/11. I believe I would have tried to kill him myself.
On the other hand...
No one deserves to pay their taxes on room, board,healthcare etc. for the permanent residence of a criminal.
Costs more to sentence a person to death than for them to spend thier lives in prison.
True but it doesn't make me feel better about it..
Yeah, private cell up until a sweet goodnight.
a bullet costs 1$
Really. Did not know that.
With appeals process, stays argued for, etc., it takes years of attorney and court costs. And still they spend many years in prison before the deed is done.
Oh man...this is useless. It understandable when ppl get discouraged...I feel that way about it a bit, and I have nothing to do with it.
I can see absolutely where ppl might feel compelled to "take matters into their own hands..."
BTW, we have got an Acronym Game going on; you might like to try another way of expressing yourself with words.. Join us!
I will.....a bit later, though
If you don't want to pay your taxes you don't have to. You'll even get to have room, board, healthcare, etc. provided for you
I pay more than my share of taxes..
No worries for me..
but everyone should be entitled to defend themselves with whatever means nessecary
I'd rather a rapist didn't feel that way...
Happy 150th Canada Day...sh9683!!
You bet some people should be killed.
Im with tiffanee here. I think people who commit unspeakable crimes should spend thier lives in unspeakable conditions. Leave them spending a life wishing there was a death penalty.
Nope, some really really really bad people do deserve death, and/or those who might be really really suffering in horrible pain, it might be nice to stop the pain as last resort.
Evil people need to be done away with.
That is true; for the future you might like to express that by expanding on what you mean...I know you have it inside of you...it just needs to come out. At least try to come up with 2 sentences. I know you're smart; you just need to channel that and put it on paper.
I don't think evil has to be explained.One sentence
Or ten sentences.Evil is Evil.
You, too. Expand on what you are saying. What you are saying is a blanket statement...what you said was good...all we need to hear is more of it...like what? Like who? But be calm and not in anger. See what I wrote to hootowl, who has been on AM for a long time.
Of course. CM certainly deserved to die. But what ppl are telling me above that it costs more to put someone to death than it does to keep them alive.
There are many who have committed such acts that they do not deserve to live.
To quote Audrie 2: A lot of folks deserve to die
