Now give me one good reason why people like this should be allowed to live rent free and get free meals at the expense of the taxpayers. They apparently have no problem killing other people, so why should we have any problem killing them?

So you're saying it's ok because they did it? Not saying I agree with prison or disagree with capital punishment, but quantifying it by saying "They have no problem killing, so we should have no problem killing them" sounds like a slippery slope.

Yes, I am saying it's okay to do something to them if they do that to other people. If you stop and think about it, there really is no limit to that concept.

I think it would save a lot more money if we bought a rope and did like the "good ol' days."

Except in the "good ol' days", innocents were killed as well, because there was evidence against them despite them not doing it.
There's STILL a lot of cases of people being found to be innocent after being imprisoned.
If we allowed Capital Punishment to remain, we would be A) killing innocents, albeit unintentionally, and B) Stooping down to their level.

Killing an innocent man has worked out before. John 3:16

Don't hide behind religion to argue this. It's cowardly, and we both know damn well what happens when a country gets ruled on the basis of a religion.

You're right about it being cheaper though. I think we pamper hardened-criminals too much. Sure, white-collar assholes can sit in a cell and eat human food, but whey do meals for prisoners cost more than the meals for our children in school? I'm talking about high school age students here too, they cost less and are generally less healthy than the **** we give to murderers. And that's ******* stupid.
