        Hi LCB Family,

        Handing down the verdict for a person who has commited a serious crime, boils down to life in prison or the death penalty.

        But what is really a good punishment for a horrendous crime? The death penalty is quick and there is no suffering.but there life is wiped out. Certainly there is satisfaction in regards to the victim and their family.

        Life in prison without the possibility of parole is definitely a nice way to suffer. As a prisoner your life lingers into a living hell atmosphere for the rest your days.

        Do you believe in the death penalty? If it was a family member that died at the hands of a criminal..what method would you prefer? Do we have the right to determines a criminals fate?

        You just said the same thing I was thinking....with death there is no real punishment, we are all gonna die at some point so giving someone the death penalty is just giving them less time to think about what they did.......If someone did something terrible to me or a loved on their death wouldn't give me the least bit of satisfatcion....knowing they have to spend the rest of their lives living like a caged up animal would please me more.....Plus I'm sure it doesn't happen too often, but what if the system is wrong and the execute an innocent person?? Where's the justice in that?

        I do believe in the death penalty, but I feel death is to quick and painless for the terrible crimes that some of these people have commited.  They deserve to serve the rest of thier days in as much misery as the system can supply.  But do they suffer enough just because they are behind bars? They have better medical care than alot of the innocent people out there. They also will never know a hungry day.  I'm not saying prison is a great place to be, I just think it could be alot worse on the criminals than it is.  (Cable TV in their cells...etc)
        Oh I forgot, even prisoners have rights....BLAH.  >:(

        Ok....how about this idea...people that would be put on death row, should be put in solitare for the rest of their lives with no possiblity of getting into a "normal" cell, and will be denied any kind of medical care for any reason....oh....and ONE meal a day, I believe a person could live off that.........now that's what I call suffering lol..........

        I'd be against it simply as they (Like the DC sniper) got "Life" however the guy who taught him was given death sentence recently) and I'd they spend their years in prison.

        Ending their lives, simply means they are no longer able to kill, however, life in prison does that. Yes, they are housed "Humanely" but I'd rather they got that sheriff from AZ to teach them about "Decent Treatment"

        Regarding Sm part, there's more then enough evidence that this has occured before. In fact, there's many convicts who in Texas have been released due to false evidence and some were in for rape which they could have been executed at one time for.

        Instead, they do get cash, which I think they also deserve a personal apology from the govenor.

        My problem with giving them life in prison is they are not treated like caged animals as PMM said most of them have better medical care than we do. They can work out, watch cable tv, have 3 good meals a day and get a good education. I know good hard working people that don't have it that good. I feel like with DNA testing the way it is today the death penalty is the way to go. Why should we pay for their care for the rest of their rotten lives. I would be ok with them serving if they didn't have tv, a place to work out and all the other stuff. If they started the chain gangs again and made them pay for there expenses that would be great.I live not far from where the little 7 year old girl's body was found last week in a landfill in Southeast Georgia. What kind of sick animal could do such a thing and what rights should he really have??? If that had been my child someone would pay dearly. They show their victims no mercy and the strip them of all their rights. I know they will find who did this and they will get the death penalty.

        ok, here's my problem
        for those who say the death penalty is ok in some cirumstanes...what irumstances are those?
        if you said yes, to say, the rape and murder of an 8 yr old, what then of a 10 yr old...or 14.....18...25.....40?
        what if it's just rape then?
        or assault?
        it's the slippery slope....what IS the line drawn in the sand?
        Personally, I wouldn't and couldnt' be the one to make those determinations, or have the death on my onscience
        (and to any who say, 'well, what if it was YOUR daughter?....well, I can't have it both ways...I'm either for or against
        Me? Against
        LOL...being Canadian, it's all moot , thankfully

        Oh and one more thing about the death penalty......What makes the people or person who decide's someone should get death and the pesron delivering the death any better than the person who committed the crime......Making the decision that someone else should die in my opinion is no different than someone on the street shooting another in cold blood......We are all people [we as in criminals and the justice system] who take it upon ourselves to decide someone elses fate........No one has the right to play "GOD"......

        If anyone comes even near to ever hurt my daughter or my family...I am not so sure if I will be  the first one to vote for death penalty...or for that criminal to rot in prison...I think I will probably  see to my own justice...what I mean is is to find that person who hurt my family and give them what they deserve in punishment but it's hard to say or even want to imagine things like that to be happened...here in cal. even though you get death sentences you get to stay in prison for 10 to 20 years or forever...to me...that is the waste of our tax dollars.

        I'm for the death penalty!!! Death's one of the biggest human fears!! But criminals are usually weak people...so they are just frightened  only of this idea!! To be in prison is still life! I'm against spending taxpayers money on keeping any monsters!!!

          my cousin got stabbed to death about 10 year ago, whilst playing scrabble in his girlfriends home, her ex came to her house drunk entered and stabbed my poor cousin 4 times in the back. he was 21. the guy who did this got 15 years prison,he did 7 years, and has now been released and emigrated to spain from the uk. where is the justice????? my cousin robbed of his  life, robbed of kids, robbed of a family, robbed of everything that we take for granted. not to mention the pain and suffering my family as gone through since the day it happened and will continue to the day they die. being jailed is not enough, the saying is a life for a life, but this is not true, it should say a life for a life and every other life that has been effected my there actions. personally id make them play a game, like they do in the saw films. (but with no escape).

          Well Dananza, that is really sad and I don't see any justice for what happened to your family.....Although I personally wouldn't have given the death sentance theres NO WAY IN HELL I woulda set him free in 7 years!! I still like my idea of life in solitary with no medical treatment and one meal a day....oh and the meal should be scrapped off the the plates of the rest of the inmates when they are done.....so nasty leftovers......that sounds like a living hell if you ask me and if someone were to do that to me, I'd be begging to die!!!
