    The outrageous cost of fcapital punishment lies with the cost of the appeals.

    4th, who determines if someone is 'spot on guilty'? Are you old enough to remember the Saigon "Pistol-to-the-head" pictures? Killer guilty, right?
    If you want I'll give you the history of the twenty minutes before that picture.

    Old enough? My first job was sweeping floors for Thomas Edison..

    The man in the picture I spoke of was a Viet Cong Lieutenant that had just murdered a South Vietnamese Colonel, his wife and six children. Found in the act, five minutes prior to the picture being taken.
    The person with the pistol is a South Vietnamese General. The General's name is 'Loan' and the photographer apologized to the General, several times during the rest of the General's life, for 'stealing his honor'.
    The General was 'spot on' 'caught in the act', but sure as shit, he wasn't guilty of murder. Or anything else, other than taking out the trash.

    PS Sweeping floors? I was in the next room scrubbing toilets.

    Hunter that was a very important shot from the war and I did not mean to belittle it in anyway. It was a bad time and. Emotions were high and I understood the what and why that happened. Sad for the man with the pistol in his hand. He lost a lot.

    I'm sorry, but I may have an offensive view point. If you don't like it, I'm sorry.

    If a dog bites someone, it is pretty much immediately put down. If animals are picked up as "strays" by Animal Control, and determined to either be too dangerous, or not wanted by society, they are put down. We push for people to be responsible pet owners and spay/neuter your animals to prevent over population. When people become animal type criminals, who are not any benefit to scociety, and are actively detrimental to society, causing over population, hurting innocent people, etc... they should be put down the same as animals. IMHO they have proven themselves to not be civilized, or of any benefit, so why should they be treated any different than a rabbid animal or stray?? That would help with the economy, crime, property value, prison overcrowding, etc.... If you catch someone "in the commision of a major crime" you should be allowed to put them down on the spot. No wasted legal fees. No tying up the court system for years with BS stuff. No more burden on the welfare system. No more feeding and paying women to become breeders of multiple future felons, and burdens to society.
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    While it may appear horrible that these men suffered during their executions there is of course a way to avoid that. Don't commit a capital crime and you won't find yourself strapped to a table getting a lethal injection. It really is that simple.
