Default Death Penalty

Do you think there should be a Death Penalty? Say Texas kill more people than any other state in the country. So do you think the Death Penalty should be in all states or in none?

This should go in 'Other: Discussion'.

But, I believe that it should be in all states. Don't ask me to back that up, because I really don't have anything to back it up with... It's just my gut feeling.

I think death penalty should only go to those who do unforgivable things.

And, only when there is undeniable evidence.

The court system fails, so why condemn a man to death when no matter what he will not have a fair trial?

So no.

I think if you should have the option of the death penalty or having to spend your life in prison. Then, whatever the person picks you secretly give them the opposite just to get them angry! Because I would actually prefer the death penalty over being in jail for my whole life. I would probably get butt raped 9,000+ times.

The Death Penalty needs to be in all states. It's needed, sad to say...

I say no death penalty, period. I would say only use it for those who are convicted of murder, but then it would be used for other things, so I say just take it out completely. Who are we to deny somebody the right to live?

Acually, I'm gonna add on to what I said. I think the Death Penalty should be in all states, but it should only be used if the person has been sentenced to life in prison prior to recieving the death sentence, if that rule doesn't already stand. :P

It wastes tax dollars. Why should murderers deserve to be a drain on society's funds? Just get rid of em' and be done with it.
