In response to the botched execution of an Oklahoma inmate on Tuesday, the death penalty debate has once again flared up.

How do you feel about the death penalty?

Do stories like the botched execution change your stance?

Have not read about the botched one, but I think if the punishment fits the crime, do it and get it over with.  The fact that someone can spend DECADES on death row is irritating.  If you're going to kill them, do it and stop spending all the excess money keeping them alive beyond a reasonable time.  1 appeal, 3 appeals, 10 appeals - where do you draw the line?

Don't do things that will land you on death row if you're against it.... In fact I'm in favor of expanding death penalty crimes. I say we go back to public execution of hanging and firing squad.

I think we should do it like China does .. the Queen of Hearts method.

I am for the death penalty.  I do think that some innocent people have died but overall I agree with it.  I read about this botched execution, I had mixed feelings about this.  I could care a less if he suffered his victims suffered so be it:/  but on the other hand if we want to call ourselves better than the criminals and more humane then they cannot allow this to happen again.
