  • Yep. I don't believe in letting a horrible person that commits a horrible crime the right to life. Why should my tax dollars have to take care of some sicko?!

  • No. I did until I did a research paper on it. It's millions of dollars cheaper to just keep a person incarcertated for life, not to mention killing a criminal doesn't "fix" anything and the fact that if for some rare, but very possible reason that prisioner was wrongfully convicted it's too late.

  • I did until I read, The innocent Man by John Grisham. The book is nonfiction and there is a reason that a group called The Innocence Project exists. It scares me to think of people being wrongly accused and sentenced to death. And, as a PP mentioned, it is less $ to let the guilty remain imprisoned as they will go to the ends of the earth dragging everything through the courts and spending lots of money to prevent the death penalty.
