True, but it could be a huge deterrent.

Seems simple enough. I would assume they do this AFTER his conviction of course, and not prior to the trial, right?

Capital punishmjent isn't a deterrent. People who end the lives of fellow human beings seldom stop and think about the consequences of their act.

That's what I'm saying. Allow the man to say his prayers, and ask for God's mercy (he obviously is going to need it) and put one in the back of his head.

He's tried and convicted. What they don't tell the condemned is when it will happen. So the anticipation is a form of torture.

I live in FL, we kill more than all but one state, yet we still have people doing hideous things to others. It doesn't seem death is a deterrent to crime.

For the one willing to stone someone... I can honestly say I would not participate in that. I don't have any sympathy for this killer, my guess is his attorney is doing his job and grasping for straws. Sooner or later he will draw the short one and his life will end without ceremony.

Inevitably it improves the gene pool.

On one of those gangland shows, a guy summed it up, " the worse that will happen, is the state will kill me, no matter if I murder 1-1000."
