Our POTUS is just throwing another turd in the punchbowl so the liberals will have to defend criminals. He outsmarts the Ds all day long.

Last I read the DP in the long run was more costly to the taxpayer than life with no parole.

Absolutely disgusting to see this type of thought process. Would you feel the same if it was a loved one, husband, wife , child that might have been tortured and killed ? Only sick people would do that, and what do we do to sick animals ? We put them down.

Same here. Just do it quickly. Guillotine is cheap and effective.

That's only because of unlimited appeals and delays. I guarantee you, if the defendant was immediately dragged to the guillotine right after the judge bangs his mallet, costs would be dirt cheap.

If you don't like the death penalty, don't do anything to make yourself eligible for the death penalty. Seems like a simple concept.

And yet...people still do heinous crimes even knowing what the punishment could be.

Good, it's about time to restart the death penalty - look at what some of these criminals have. CNN has the first 5 to be executed.

Death penalty should be taken off the table.

Best punishment for a child rapist and murderer is general population in a high security prison which is hell for the criminal rapist before he even gets to the real hell. In general population he will pray for death.

On death row they are held in safety and segregation. Sad... they need human contact and being in general population these vermin and sure to get plenty of human contact especially when taking a shower.
