    Seems those in Boston want to bring back the death penalty. Why not just ship mean dogs into space? Place them in an envelope, seal it up, and mail them off to God. I don't see what the sense is in releasing jam-bangers time and time again to prey on those who wish to live peacefully. Fugue em. Nuke em till they glow.

    I'm thinking that cases that were decided before the advent of such things as DNA testing should possibly be commuted to life, but I don't put the death penalty on the same level as murder of an innocent ​human being.

    I believe that it is a deterrent, because there are no cases of a convict escaping prison and raping or killing anyone else after they have been executed.

    I also think it should be expanded to those with more than one rape conviction, and as Guido said, there is Justin Beiber.

    As far as what Delaware does? That's their business.

    I feel that the death penalty is proper and fitting for certain crimes, provided the evidence is undoubtable.

    Absolutely, I'd like to say on the first conviction, but you can rest pretty sure that multiple offenses preclude the possibility of of an error.

    I can see the logic in that. As hard as it is, I can't see the DP even for revenge. The only reason the DP act as a deterrent is because when the criminal is dead, the criminal is unable to commit more crimes. The recent cases whereby inmates have been freed due to new evidence has given me pause to consider the DP. I would hate to be a person condemned to die for something I didn't do.
    Revenge satisfies no one. People I have known have related to me that after the convicted criminal is executed, there remains an emptiness that the execution can't erase and it's not necessarily an emptiness because of missing the crime victim that was killed.
    Of course an emotionless, methodical execution would be the ideal, but I opine that we should feel remorse when we are forced to execute someone. The alternative (to feeling remorse) is not so good.

    While I don't really disagree with you, the only thing I worry about is making sure those convicted are 100% guilty. Mistakes can't be taken back i that case.

    ...sure, I don't advocate shoddy legal work-I know mistakes have been made on other cases...but this one seems pretty ironclad...due diligence is all I ask...that and justice for the victims...
