The only problem with capital punishment in the USA is that its not used enough and when it is the muderer usually spends way too much time on death row. There needs to be a constitutional amendment stipulating that no prisoner should ever wait more than three months or so on the Row once he is sentenced to execution.

And these executions need to be televised. Perhaps an entire channel dedicated to it. Child molesters need to be executed, ad do drug dealers and home invaders and anyone convicted of a violent crime against the elderly or children.

White collar guys like Madoff who caused thousands to lose their life's savings also deserve the needle. Tell me their victims wouldn't dig that, mates!

Try my methods.and see if we don't see a drop in those crimes. Those who claim that capital punishment is not a proven deterrent are wrong. It certainly could be if it were used more frequently and consistently.

That's not enough time for proper appeals.

This is a bit sick in the head.

You'll see an increase in crime in general. States without the death penalty see consistently less murders.

You think that murdering someone or molesting a child, is the same as selling someone something that they are going to jam in their own face? Then what the fuck are giant drug companies doing?

Absolutely no privatized industry should be in charge of murdering people, in my opinion, one judge, or a jury of 17 people isn’t enough either.

If you kill people in Oklahoma, we'll kill you back.*
