Yes, I absolutely support the death penalty. With my line of work, I have seen too many crime scenes to think otherwise. I am a firm believer of "an eye for an eye". I think that if you beat someone to death with a baseball bat, your punishment should be that you are beaten to death by a baseball bat.
If you knew 100% that you will die in the same manner that you have killed, then you would be alot less likely to carry out brutal acts.
I have an unusually harsh perspective when it comes to punishment and the death penalty. If you are convicted of murder and sentenced to death, you get 1 appeal, in a timely manner (6 months or less). Then you will be executed.
When it comes time for your execution, it should be (as said above) the sma emanner that you have killed by. BUT, the execution should be televised. Hell, they should sell tickets. $25 per seat. the money raised will go to a victims advocate fund. The reason for it being televised, is that so many people have become desensitized to serious injury and death through movies/tv. If you actually watched people die, you would regain the seriousness and gravity of death.
watching convicted murderers, be put to death on national tv would cause potential furture muderers to think twice before pulling the trigger.
OK, Let me have it.......... Let me here how crazy or evil I am.
