For or against the death penalty?

There are some real sick-o-s out there. A guy that use to work in the prison system for over 10 years told my so that there was a guy in a glass cell because he cut off the arms of a baby girl because she would not stop crying. He would ask the jailers if they would tell him what the weather was like outside and the jailers would tell the guy to fuck off. My question is, do you think a sick-o like that should still be alive?

  • I don't understand why this guy was in a glass cell rather than a regular one.

  • I think the death penalty should be used more often. When someone commits a heinous crime like that, they don't deserve to live. Some people will never be rehabilitated, why keep them in jail?

  • I used to be undecided but now I am For. I think it was the story of the grandma who threw her grandchild over the ledge of a parking garage, killing her.
    Or the guy who dipped his girlfriends baby in hot water, scalding her because she wouldn't stop crying.

  • I say use them for scientific experiments for 10 years, then fry them.

  • im for the punishment fitting the crime. in the guy's situation you're referring to, they should've cut his arms off and then fried him to death on the electric chair. it angers me that people like this get a "easy, painless death" with potassium injection. did their victims get the same treatment? no.

  • On-the-fence - I sympathize with both sides.

  • I'm for it, but only because I believe it's cheaper then having them in prision for life. I think a lot of the Level 3 sex offenders should get fried.
