    ted bundy, myra hindley, the birnies.....they all tortured and murdered innocent people. why should taxpayers provide a warm bed, food, medicine, television, libraries, education for them?

    and the debate over what costs more (death penalty or incarceration) is an ongoing argument with no direct answer. it depends on individual cases, numbers of appeals, who represented etc.

    if anyone hurt my child, i would personally hunt down and kill the piece of sh*t Sally Field style in an Eye for an Eye.
    And go to jail or face capital punishment (if we had it) yourself?

    It should only apply to the very worst offenders, a crime where someone avenges the death of a loved one, is not the same as a repeat offender who is a serial killer etc.

    I havent read the PP's, but I think that the law needs to be reviewed in that each case is individual and should be judged that way.
    In the heinous crimes, where a person has no remorse and has done something un imaginable, I believe IMO that we should stop drug testing on animals, and use such criminals for drug testing, etc.... This way they can give back to society by testing a new drug and we can leave the innocent animals alone.

    If god forbid anyone i loved ever got murdered, i would want to send them to a Mexican or something prison where it is no where near as nice as ours. I don't think that how the prisons are are right ATM. i think they should get nowhere near as nice treatment but thats a different thread.

    But i would never want anyone who killed or hurt someone i loved to just be able to die.

    Against. So many who commit crime are addicts or mentally ill or both and putting them to death would do no good. It would not be a deterrent for others & it doesn't bring the person they killed back, or fix the ruined lives of anyone effected by the crime.

    Also, for most horrible crimes - especially involving kids - most offenders have it coming from other inmates as well.

    I sway... I feel life in high security prison would probably be worse than death. But if someone committed a violent crime against my babies I'd want them dead. And obviously can't do it myself.

    For all the reasons listed here, I'm against it, however, if the offender wanted to die rather than stay in prison for life (a life sentence where life means life), then I think that should be accommodated. Give them enough sleeping pills and let them take their own lives. No one else needs to be responsible, it's their choice. I think a few would take this option.
