@Sleightman @chumlee @D TEE I completely understand the anger, and I wholeheartedly support justice for the family and the victims. I don't support more murder on top of murder. Murder is wrong. Period. End of discussion. Doesn't matter who is doing it, an individual or the state. Murder in unacceptable. 


And if you are trying to say that execution is not murder....really? You're killing somebody out of anger and revenge. That...is straight up murder. 


The only time the death penalty makes any moral sense is in a situation where a criminal is just too dangerous to be left alive. You aren't executing a Human being out of anger and spite, but rather to protect others due to extraordinary circumstances. 


Violence is not an appropriate answer to violence...

@Sleightman "Cruel and Unusual" is decided at the Human level. If you can't see how this cruel, you have serious issues. You don't get to just ignore the Constitution. You want to be a barbarian and ruthlessly torture wrongdoers? Great. Go to some third world hellhole. Enjoy. Let the US actually follow it's own laws, and join the rest of the civilized world.

@Sleightman @D TEE I have all the sympathy in the world for the victims. Nobody should be murdered.....that goes for the murderer too. This is absolutely terrifying. We as a society are (should be) better than this. Did this man dying an agonizing, painful, torture of a death serve to make anyone feel better? Not to mention that we have this thing that conservatives usually like to point out called "The Constitution" (even though I know the only part that matters in the 2nd Amendment), and in the Constitution...the Eight Amendment specifically outlaws cruel and unusual punishment. If you don't think this classifies as cruel, you aren't a Human being. We can't just ignore the Constitution because we don't like criminals. Want to torture criminals in terrible ways? Call a Constitutional Convention and have the Eight Amendment repealed. 


Until then, the death penalty should be abolished, as there is no way to kill somebody that is not cruel.

We REALLY do need SEVERE penalties for false rape accusations. The mere accusation is enough to ruin ones life, and we can't just allow that to happen lightly.
