    If you make an example out of them, these copycats wouldn't be so common.
    None of this, years on death row writing books and doing interviews, making them famous. Just my $.02
    True. Any deterrent effect from modern executions is largely negated by the ridiculous delays in carrying it out.

    agreed on all above, it needs to actually be used as a deterrent, the way its carried out today is a joke

    swift and painless....no cruel and unusual punishment.....I say bring him into a room, set him in a chair facing away from the door, and tell him his lawyer is there to see him.....then someone comes in the door without him ever seeing it and pops him with one round in the MO

    The crime is completely irrelevant. "Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted." -The Constitution, Bill of Rights, Amendment VIII. It's a right, regardless of what one did.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
