I agree.
Killing someone to prove it's not okay to kill someone is a little bassackwards to me.



I used to be all for it until something happened to a family friend; she was brutally raped then bludgeoned to death and her family didn't want to push for the death penalty.

My uncle's murderer being put to death is why I love the death penalty. There was no reason for that man to breather another breath and the only thing I regret is he got to live longer and the police didn't kill him on scene. My uncle died April 19, 1995.

He was delivering a packet to the Murrah building that day. He was a sheriffs deputy. One of 169 people killed. I still go the memorial every year for the anniversary.

I'm sorry to hear that.



I grew up in Golden Valley, AZ. (Which is right outside of Kingman, AZ).



We had so many bomb threats at our elementary school prior to that bombing.

It's unimaginable to think of carrying that burden once you understand what you did. I'd rather die.

What about for McVeigh? Osama bin Laden? The guy from Sandy Hook if he had lived?

I don't think anyone has the right to take someone else's life. They were all terrible people but killing them isn't justice.
