    I support the death penalty but only when we have a jury that rules the defendant as 'Guilty beyond an ABSOLUTE doubt.
    There are such cases that the defendant is plainly and obviously guilty BaAD.
    So this type of ruling should be entered in a juries decision.

    Evidence should also be evaluated for its credibility such as DNA in comparison to a victims identification or any other wirness ID.

    I don't support a death penalty of any kind, but that was LMFAO.

    Well this is not a joking subject.

    Why be concerned with a killers future and ignore the sadness and anguish that the victims family has to endure for decades or a lifetime.

    Besides it would be cheaper since with all doubt being removed, the appeals process can be reduced to just one .

    I don't know why people care so much. The odds of slipping on a banana peel as you walk down the sidewalk, and hitting your head when you fall, and dying from that are probably way higher than the odds of getting wrongly executed.

    My major concern about lifers is that they are often mixed into the same prison populations as people who may have only done something stupid like selling weed. Now they've got to adapt to a culture that includes brutal murderers who have nothing to lose (adding another 100 years to a 400+ year sentence just... doesn't quite have the same intimidation as you might want it to have.)

    Besides that, then you've got the killers who start writing letters, or connected killers who still have influence on the outside. The only real end to some peoples' reign of terror is their death. The families of the victims don't want "closure" because they're vengeful. They want closure because they want it to be over. They don't want to have to worry about the guy anymore.

    I agree with Cosmo.

    Housing prisoners who we KNOW have done something worthy of death, is expensive and unnecessary.
