Well, I think if it's premeditated murder. It should easily be a death penalty.

Happy reaper is better than Grim Reaper, though. :)

I think the death penalty could be utilized for those who are career-repeat/psychopath offenders of the most heinous crimes.

I don't believe in the death penalty. It's more poetic that prisoners rot. If we murder a murderer than that's just irony. I don't believe we have the right to take a life and there have been a total of 156 people released from death row because they were found to be innocent and 20 of those people were released because of DNA evidence. It would be unfortunate if we were too late to save them and they were innocent. Innocent men and women have been killed because of the death penalty.

Some people are too dangerous to let live even in incarceration.

I support the death penalty for people who misspell two-letter words and cannot even correctly quote the name of the criminal suspect they're using in their attention-baiting posts. Our forums are overcrowded.

The problem lies in the fact we put people in jail for stupid crap. Attacking the death penalty will solve nothing if the true problem always gets tip toed around.

I mainly support the death penalty for those "in" prison yet still committing crimes through their gangs/friends/hirelings such as murder of witnesses or the people who put them in jail. Those already with life sentences who feel like they have nothing to lose have in fact proven themselves beyond rehabilitation.

People I've talked to are frequently under the wrong impression. They believe that the death penalty is entirely intended to scare other criminals into avoiding crime. Alternately, they may be under the impression that somehow the death penalty is less expensive than keeping someone in jail for life.

In reality, the entire point of the death penalty is to put a stop to the crimes committed by that individual forever. They never get the opportunity to commit another crime against anyone. There's no possibility that they will escape from prison and terrorize an entire community for weeks or months the way Richard Matt and David Sweat did after escaping from Clinton Correctional in New York. There's no chance they will be running things from inside or corrupting others the way things happened in the Baltimore City Jail http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/sun-investigates/bs-md-sun-investigates-jail-20150711-story.html They won't be able to attack anyone else once they're dead.

In the old days, an execution would be done by hanging, costing the town the expense of one new rope - and if no handy trees were available, the erection of a platform with a trap door. Actually the towns usually recouped the cost of the rope by cutting it into pieces after it was used and selling them as souvenirs. Modern executions in the USA primarily take place by lethal injection, electric chair, and I believe one or two states still have firing squads or hanging on the books although it hasn't been done in years.

I don't have the exact figures because it's been a few years since I looked them up - however if we estimate that 80% of violent crime is committed by 10% of criminals who happen to be repeat offenders, you can see that by eliminating that 10% of the criminal population which has already shown by the repeated nature and increasingly violent nature of their crimes as well as repeated visits to prison during which they did NOT get rehabilitated to society, utilizing the death penalty in those cases would certainly put a large dent in the number of crimes being committed.

Bottom line is, yes I support the death penalty. I personally think it should be used more often than it is - although I understand the reluctance in it's use.

I have the same belief as the ladies above. The Death penalty should be a consideration and in some cases the only option. Like in this case,
Victim's dad jumps over table to attack her killer in court, https://www.yahoo.com/news/ohio-man-sentenced-killing-3-women-wrapped-bags-052516651.html. The killer was sentenced appropriately.
