is reciving the death penalty really enough? decade after decade has passed and fewer and fewer eletric chairs are now in actual use upon U.S. soil. replaced by lethal injection. The Electric Chair is the most feared form of federal execution. it is said that during a proper electrocution in a state chair that the body Should (the keyword is Should) parilize and nothing is felt. your blood boils cooking your organs inside out. the entire procedure takes approx 15 minutes. just over a minute of electrocution, then several more for the body to cool down so its possible for a doctor to look for a pulse without burning himself. If required the 15 mintue procedure occurs again seconds later. Only 2 men survived the electric chair. One described it as billions of hot needles shooting in and out of your entire body, "you'd like to just play dead and relax but the electricity kept the muscles, heart and lungs moving like you were sprinting accross a feild". from this point of veiw, finding that Some inmates on death row May have felt there painful deaths should the US death penalty be changed pending on the crime (ie:murder 1,2 & 3)? pending all of the following punishments are still in operation shouldnt the most feared/painful death penalty (Gas chamber, Lethal injection, Electric Chair)be the worst punishment of all? basically should the US change the correctional system on death row to death 1, death 2 or death 3 (1/3 being the worst)? With the above description of how an electric chair feels and the fact that a "slap on the wrist" isnt enough anymore whats your opinion on further enforcing the death penalty in our over-crowded prisions?
im gone.

I always thought the electric chair was a fairly successful deterent, it made prisoners fear it, and I spose it would be a fitting punishment for some, allowing them to suffer if they'd caused suffering. But, things unfortunantly due change, some for good, some for worse. In some ways, injection is a easy way out.

As I am from Canada, we don't have the death penalty. I however, don't believe in it because I se it as an easy way out. I believe that spending one's life in prison with fact that you've commited a horrible crime on your conscience is far worse than any death sentance.

Death penalty.

Hah!

I still stick to my theory of bringing back the good ol' days of Roman gladiators. Put two prisoners on death row, in a room together, one armed with a hammer, the other with a sharpened spoon, and then sell the footage on pay per view. Kind of like a prison rodeo.

Either that, or tie them up and drag them behind a truck down a gravel road.That's a real crappy way to die. Lethal injections are for wusses. The even STERILZE the needle. God forbid the rotting corpse of a convicted murderer get a head-cold.

I say fry the bastards. Spending your time in prison doesn't exactly make your ass feel guilty..considering some homeless commit crimes just because you get food and shelter and stuff in prison.

Personally what I feel they should do is take the prisoner, put him in an enclosed outdoor area. And give the victim either a shotgun or a weapon of their choice. smile And have ye cur!

But sadly thats not humane sad
I hate life in prison sentences, it costs us money to feed and clothe them. And some prisoners have a cushier life than law abiding citizens. It's a sad time we live in.

(Anyone who think my POV is mean and horrific please don't hesitate to quarrel)

I don't really believe in the death penalty. I respect everyone's opinion and no offence but I think it's rather savage. Yes, we do have to pay alot of money to keep prisoners but killing them because they're expensive? That's like shooting your dog because you can't take care of him. Besides, I'd rather be fried than make friends in jail if you know what I mean. I dont want to start a big fight, it's just my opinion.

Fine. But we should still get SOME fun out of wasting our money. Like getting to throw rocks at them or something.

it's hard to just have a straight up yes or no answer to the death penalty question. if you had friends or family on death row you definitely wouldn't want the death penalty because you'd want them to live. however if you had a friend or family member killed, you'd want the murderer to die. either way its a fucked up situation for the people involved. just some shit i hope i never gotta deal with. instead of talking about the death penalty though, people needa start helping young kids stay away from crime. crimes of passion will always happen. there's no way to stop that. but certain crimes involved with violence and drugs can be stopped by educating and supporting these kids before they start with that s***. the prisons are already ridiculously crowded. i just hope america and the goverent get their shit straight before we get crazy ammounts of people locked up.

heres my beef with kids. doesnt matter where they grow up, who there parents are but education is the key, yes - the key! but a cop walking into a room telling it how it is? that isnt enough. perhaps also having a cuffed inmate speaking his mind about how it Really is on the inside. with the cleanest language possible perhaps the kids will read more into it rather then staring at the officers issue hanging from his belt. and yes family members. that is a big haul right there. but what about all of the sickening child molesters and rapists out there? some time ago an inmate asked to have his genitals removed so he wouldnt be so prown to raping other females and young children. there are people in this world that Do Not belong in todays society whatsoever and even then in prision even with all of the enforcement advances they still cannot function properly. intead of locking those violent sex crazed pervs in solitary those small cells in prisions could be used for something Much more constrictive. like an auto body repair shop, a library, an education center, the list goes on in rehabilitating others who still have a chance. i say shove em in the chair and let her rip.
im gone.

I like the death penalty. they should bring it back in full force. The reason they got rid of it, is because parents probably figure there kids will most likely have to be strapped into it in the future. Being as most youth these days is crazy as hell.

The electricity costs for one person to be put to death in the electric chair, along with the legal costs for the state, is far more expensive than keeping a person in prison for 25 years.

I think the idea behind the death penalty is get those freaks out of society as quickly as possible... Who cares how they die as long as they are dead... And isn't torture a second before death irrelevant anyways?
