imfallen_angel: TheWhoppah: No nation is civilized if they DON'T execute a man for raping and killing a woman who is eight months pregnant. If you can't execute scumbag subhumans like that then your society is not civilized.

skozlaw: lennavan: It does when you're guilty of raping and murdering a pregnant girl and the family of the victim supports it.

No, it doesn't, and your idea of how a justice system ought to function is insanely terrifying. Thank god nobody ever asked you how things should work and let's hope nobody ever does.


I don't know why you're terrified of a justice system that executes raping murderers.  What exactly are you worried about, they'll come back as zombies or what?

FlashHarry: so, both cruel AND unusual.

farking barbaric.


I dunno, I'd be willing to be people die gasping and choking all the time.  Not that unusual.

Now, for it to really be unusual, you'd have to do something like dress him up in a plaid frock, smother him with elderberry jam and pelt him to death with ravenous badgers while a live band plays 'Nearer My God to Thee' in the background.   That would be unusual.

Also bring back Burning at the stake for kiddy diddlers, we could run round the clock footage of all the states executions on its own cable channel with comercials to make up the cost.

dittybopper: So why don't we just overdose them with morphine?  We know it works, and we know it's painless, and it's less messy than my idea of using explosive lenses to implode the heads of criminals like the pit of an atomic bomb, which, btw, is quite humane, because the explosive shockwave is faster than nerve conduction speed, so it's like instantly turning off a light.  They'd never even know when the end happens, because they'd be dead before the sensations could reach their brains.

PsiChick: Fano: PsiChick: TheWhoppah: You equate the infliction of pain with uncivilized behavior.  You mention vengeance as if it were a dirty word.  Yet you've offered nothing in support of either proposition.   Vengeance is the root of all justice.  Citizens cede their natural right to seek justice to the government in return for orderly professional-grade high quality vengeance.  This is a fundamental element of the social contract between man and government.

...That's a  really interesting take on it, but most of us cede our right to vengeance to the government because we recognize we might one day be on the wrong end of the stick, and would prefer the law to treat us fairly, so we acknowledge other people have to be treated fairly too. That's called 'justice'. I mean,  you might be doing that, but I don't think the rest of us are...

What about Batman? He is Vengeance. He is THE NIGHT.

Dr Jack Badofsky: TheShavingofOccam123: QFTA:

A federal judge sided with the state but acknowledged the new method was an experiment.

Please have this judge removed from the bench. This is an idiot. A cruel, nasty idiot.

I dunno.  Depends on who they were experimenting on.  Was it a worst-of-the-worst pedophile?  Par for the course.  Went on a serial-killing spree?  Welcome to the "Serial Killer Victim Experience".  Kidnapped / tortured / raped people?  My sympathy meter just broke Trying to register lower than it was able to.  Not feeling very sorry at all for people on death row, especially when the evidence is overwhelmingly proof that they indeed were heinous individuals.  Ted Bundy, for example.  Don't let his looks and charisma fool you.  That's an unrepentant, cold, sadistic, devious person.  Not fixable, and not worth the oxygen he breathed.


Please have this judge kept on his bench forever. We need people like him (along with the repeal of the Eighth Amendment).

And anyone with a criminal record should be put to death, no matter how minor it is. Any kind of blemished, imperfect record should = DIEDIEDIEDIEDIE!!!!

Millennium: jshine: Kit Fister: Beyond that, I see death as simply a form of cold storage. I don't promote death as a means of revenge, but simply as a means of permanently removing the person from the gene pool and freeing up a cell, guards, and resources for others.


"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement."
-- J.R.R. Tolkien

Said by a character who killed many people, to another whose hands did not end up clean, and acknowledging in the quote itself that sometimes it is right. The point of your quote is not that no one should ever be killed, only that it is a grave responsibility, to be exercised with the utmost care.


Orcs aren't people.

To those who say its cruel and unusual  .... go eat a snickers. You act like a whiny biatch when you're hungry.
If you don't like the death penalty, too bad. If you are a man posting here and object to killing a psychopath who brutalized an 8 month pregnant woman, you are a pussy.

Marcus Aurelius: dittybopper: So we can go with my other idea, then.

You have to admit that it might be considered "unusual".


The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the use of "cruel and unusual" punishment. Punishments therefore may be cruel or unusual, so long as they are not both simultaneously.

Some suggestions for alternate forms of capital punishment:

1. bear pit
2. piranha tank
3. catapult
4. very large blender
5. nitroglycerin water balloon fight
6. whatever they do to put down rabid dogs, if someone wants to live like a sick animal they can die like one.

Ohio officials used intravenous doses of two drugs, the sedative midazolam and the painkiller hydromorphone, to put McGuire to death for the 1989 rape and fatal stabbing of a pregnant woman, Joy Stewart.... a newlywed who was eight months pregnant at the time of her death

So a guy who raped and murdered a girl who was 8 months pregnant suffocated for 15 minutes before he died and I'm supposed to feel bad for him?  I'll see what I can do for you but so far I'm coming up empty here.

I don't support the death penalty (because of wrongful convictions) but if we're going to be barbaric, can't we at least make some money off of it? Auction off hunting permits, release the convict in a protected area, and let the games begin. Donate all that money to the treasury and make some of that taxpayer money back. I know what you're thinking...haven't I seen this in the movies before? And the answer is no, in the movies they always put the hunt on PPV, which I'm not suggesting.
