I always believe in the Verse "An eye for an eye." If they are TRULY GUILTY of rape murder then they should be killed. Why should the tax payers keep them alive...we pay for them to eat, shower, roof over head, AC and heating, list continues on!. 5 years ago from a Republican in Rescue, VA
No, because punishment of life in prison would have a much greater effect on criminals. It would give them a chance to think about their crime and reflect on what they did. This also gives the falsely accused a chance at escape. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Bala Cynwyd, PA
No, because that's just a horrible way to be killed. The suspect should have a choice to either get the death penalty?...it depends on what their charges are. I feel like it's never about...actually giving evidence about why the suspect is... 5 years ago from a Republican in Washington, DC
If one murders a child,elderly person or a disabled person. also if one tortures or sexually assaults victims before killing them. 5 years ago from a Republican in Ozark, AL
I support the death penalty if the execution occurs within 2 years of sentencing. Lengthy death row sentences do not deter violent crime. 5 years ago from a Republican in Sweet Water, AL
Yes, but it should not be left up to the states. The federal government should administer capital punishment. 5 years ago from a Socialist in Clementon, NJ
Should be up to the person being charged, whether they want to be expelled from the country or death penalty. 5 years ago from a Green in Thomasville, GA
Only when the person is likely to escape and continue to commit more crimes (ie Ted Bundy). 5 years ago from a Green in Milwaukee, WI
If you kill somebody, and are proved to that crime, what do you think you're gonna get back? Not a Fed issue. A State by State issue. 5 years ago from a Republican in Nashville, TN
There a people who have done heinous things to other people that perhaps don't deserve to live on...but it costs the system (ie me) too much money for these cases and, heaven forbid, there could have been an error and an innocent is put to death. ... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Rochester, NY
Yes, only for self-confessed criminals. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Baltimore, MD
Yes, but only if a stricter burden of proof is used than beyond a reasonable doubt. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Spring Valley, NY
Depending on the persons criminal record if they kill or do any major crime and goes psycho then yes they should be put to death otherwise no because they need to learn their lesson in prison for life; they're humans too. 5 years ago from a Green in Blytheville, AR
