I'll say it again - death sentences should be handled this way: Drive inmate to cemetery, pull the black bag off of their head and let them say goodbye to their loved ones, position them in front of the already dug grave, shoot them in the brainstem with a frangible .45 ACP round and dump the body in the hole, cover with dirt, and garnish with a small concrete marker with their name lifespan, and crime they were executed for. Start doing this for both murder categories, rape & child molestation, Enron style white collar crime, third strike offenders, a few other serious felonies, and watch the crime stats plummet. Additionally apply this standard to all politicians convicted of any felony committed while in office and and we might even start to make a dent in political corruption.
Both need to be simply sentenced to death i know the old saying an eye for an eye leaves us all blind but killing a 7 year old girl is not only senseless and reckless it is also just pure stupid. I hate to say it but what is happening to the youth today (I am only 27 but we didn't do **** like this back then and you didn't hear about stuff like it either). We have some very bright young guys on this board but they seem to be the minority when it comes to todays youth what with the group of teenagers recently caught forming a gang to go around town to commit crimes like in GTA4.
The media is not the sole target we need to place our blame on but what about the viewers that fall for some of crap the media spews? I also don't agree that the parents should be the scape goat every time something happens to kids.
I just cant understand how we are having such problems with our prison system (crowding) and yet we sentence murderers, child molester's, rapist, and all other sorts of badness to the prison system (which many cons agree is College for the bad guys) to be released costing us millions in "rehabilitation" and feeding/housing them when it should just be a short trip to the gas chamber.
