Well done for stating the bleeding obvious.

I  find murder abhorrent and I'm not against execution of a murderer.
I am opposed to any branch of government having the power of life and death.  Too many people on death row have been vindicated after years of prison or after the execution.

If you can't tell the difference between capital punishment and murder, perhaps you better leave your rose colored glasses on.

LOL, and by that token perhaps you should fully embrace 'an eye for an eye' punishments and start chopping bit's off of thieves and rapists.

Not necessarily, it's pretty grey area though.

Murderers, rapists, and child molesters, I'm not against the death penalty for them. Hell, at least cripple them, then prevent them from taking their own life and let them rot in solitary. I think if these sexual predators had no ability to feel anything or even move anything from the waste down, they sure wouldn't be commiting any repeat acts against new victims.

Doesn't seem to be a grey area for you.
Would it be total faith in the infalability of your government and judicial system that gives you this 'view'?

Actually, it's the lack of faith in both. So many guilty people repeat offend, maybe the consequences aren't strong enough.

You do see the flaw in that, right?

Of course, however since the current system isn't effective enough, I think there's room for tweaking.

"Life" in prison in the U.K. is around 20/25 yrs, with time off for good behaviour.Their is no such thing as "Death Row", All this talk of rehabilitation is a load of old crap,at least 2 guys have been released recently ,and murdered again. Anyone who commits murder doesnt deserve to live on the state, but of course they all claim innocence . If anyone takes a life they give up the right to be a member of the human race, and should be exterminated.

(2) try your second best, ........if that dont work
(3) give up you aint gonna win
