    Federal Death Penalty Abolition Act of 2009 (SB 650)

    Senate bill introduced to abolish the death penalty. It appears it will abolish the penalty for all crimes in federal law and under the UCMJ.

    I think we have a law against cruel and unusual punishment.

    They should keep the death penalty and get rid of Life Without Parole. I mean seriously WTH. Send these people to live on a resort for the rest of their lives? If I wanted a pet I would buy a dog.

    Perhaps they could start by abolishing the Death Penalty for innocent, unborn babies! Frigging hypocrites!!

    so for the sake of argument..say a man kidnaps tortures, rapes and murders a young girl. I think this man should die!! He sure as hell doesn't deserve 3 hots and a cot WITH cable T.V. a weight room.. all the literature he may want to read..and an option to further his education...FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE ON MY DIME!!

    So a few innocent people might get convicted and sentenced to death...that's a small price to pay instead of the alternative......

    My only problem with the death penalty is that they don't make it hurt enough!

    +1. They have their priorities wrong. Then again what else is new.
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

  10. The death penalty is necessary. However, the way it is performed today is really wrong. There are people who have been executed that were innocent, there are people who have been set free that should die. Why do we keep these people on death row for 20 years?
    No one should be killed out of anger, hate or fear. They should be killed because they are so incompatible with society that they can never coexist with it, then they should be executed with a sense of failure and regret because we have failed this person to the point where there is no other choice but to permanently remove them from society.
    For today, why should we wait 10 or 20 years to execute someone? Once someone is found guilty of and sentenced to death, I think it should be referred to a professional panel whose job is to find the TRUTH of what happened, not that farce that comes up during trial (I could write a book about this). All sources of information should be available, including polygraph or other lie detector tests, all of the evidence, including the stuff that was "supressed" at trial, etc. Once these people determine the TRUTH and make sure the person needs to be executed, kill him ASAP, in the most humane way possible.
    Let him have the choice. I, personally, would much rather be shot than electocuted or lethal injection.
    You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

    Mr. Vegas than the argument becomes where is the line drawn. So what if we infringe on a multitude of constitutional rights of a few, so we can have ours. Than we are hypocrites ourselves and who are we to advocate FOR the 2nd amendment rights of ourselves when we are taking away the rights of others. Its a slippery slope that is Unconstitutional. In the 1980s the Supreme Court outlawed and banned the Death Penalty nationally because people who were innocent were being sentanced to death. The 8th amendment of the US Constitution bans the use of cruel and unusual punishment, which includes false imprisonment (and coincidently holding hands with Nancy Pelosi ). On ANOTHER note, statistically speaking it costs $750,000 for someone to sit be imprisoned for 25 years. ONE death penalty case can cost as much as 2 million tax paying dollars because of everything getting tied up in the appeals system. This is only over the course of maybe 7 to 10 years. So hey I think these guys are the scum of the earth, I think we should take all of them to Arizona, New Mexico, Death Valley California, and Nevada and put them in the same GI tents we use in Afghanistan and Iraq. Let them sweat and rot, because hey if its good enough for our troops, its good enough for our criminals. Ive learned this from studying this for 4 years as a CRJS major. Just my opinion, not for or against the death penalty, just some food for thought.
