Pay to see pedophiles, rapists, child abusers, etc killed? Absolutely. Anyone who wouldn't enjoy seeing scum like that get what they deserve is a little off in my opinion. If pedophiles were to get the death penalty or torture, I'd be the first one in line to apply for a job as the executioner.

But you libs are all about saving the criminals, the trees, the whales....but to hell with unborn babies and the safety of our children, right?

Anyone who would enjoy seeing a HUMAN BEING be KILLED is a little off. That's weird and its a perversion in and of itself.

I'm about HUMAN RIGHTS. Throwing around tired, useless assumptions and party line buzz phrases isn't debating. It's just playing for your team and it's tiresome.

If you have an original thought or dialogue that you'd like to explore, I'm all ears. If I want to hear the "Liberals are murderers" song, I'd tune into Faux News.

Human rights? Spare me that rhetoric. You commit a crime you pay, you kill you die. Eye for an eye.

Faux news now that is rich. Typical liberal argument...can't answer so you resort to that game, has gotten old on a national level and here as well.

SEE Massachusetts, one of the most liberal states, with huge population of Independent voters just elected a conservative to fill a seat held by a democrat for 48 years. A Kennedy seat, have to love it.

You can call it rhetoric all you want. The fact remains that human rights protect you as much as they protect criminals. As someone who is in love with core constitutional rights, you should be at the forefront of protecting EVERY man's rights.

Can't answer what? That we should make a sideshow of killing criminals to cut taxes? Are you honestly suggesting that this is a well thought out, logical answer to cutting crime? What I said was "If I want to hear the "Liberals are murderers" song, I'd tune into Faux News." And it's true. I'm not interested in hearing the oft-trotted out "Liberals suck and are murderers" tripe. It does nothing to further the discourse in this country and serves to split people even more then they already are.

But I guess it's easier and doesn't take any thinking to just use the same ole catchphrases of yore, right?

And the Dem in Mass f'ed up her chances big time. I fail to see what that election has to do with crime rates and/or prevention.

If you have some intelligent policies that you have actually considered, please post them. I'm always up for a thoughtful debate on crime and punishment.

If you are going to continue with the party line stuff though, I'm out.

It troubles me that GP and weluvpa would rather engage in a peeing contest instead of having a thoughtful, intelligent conversation about the state of crime in our country and how our justice system can best reverse the upward trend in said crimes.

Oh well...

If anyone here would like to discuss this, I find the topic endlessly fascinating and engrossing.

Excuse me while I step out of the room for a minute. The testosterone is getting a little deep in here.
