So, executing him which would cost more tax dollars then a life sentence is better? A life sentence is more of a punishment then the death penalty.To that I ask, "What about the 99.9999% chance that the DNA evidence and other evidence collected in the case is correct? What about the 12 year old girl who was raped, mutilated, and murdered? What about justice for her and for her family who has to live with knowing their daughter's killer gets to live off their tax dollars for the rest of his life-- which he is more than content with doing?
This is a very weak argument. The death penalty again is a long process, where the execution date could be many years away and it actually costs more then a life sentence. So that's a fallacious argument.So we get to feed him, house him, allow himself to be entertained by watching television, playing recreation, etc. ... all because you are ignoring the 99.9999% chance he is guilty and are arguing the .000001% chance that the forensic evidence is wrong?
I'm calling BS on that one. Try to stay away from red herrings. I'm not in favor of state sanctioned murder no matter the case.Something tells me that if this happened to a daughter of yours, a sister, etc. you would be singing a much different tune.
It is barbaric because it's state sanctioned murder and it's not better then the crime itself. And your reasoning is poorly supported at best.On a side note, where people are getting this idea that putting criminals found guilty of committing heinous crimes to death is barbaric, is truly beyond me. What they did was "barbaric". We don't torture them. We don't cut off their heads, throw acid in their eyes (like in Iran), cut off limbs ... etc.
It's nothing about justice. It's about exacting revenge, and when that happens what good is the justice system? Why don't you just skip trials, and go right to street justice?We put them to death because they have zero place being in our society for the crimes they committed and are enacting justice for their victims and their families.
And I'm going to agree with the other poster who replied to this. Your post is just scare mongering... and it doesn't even provide any proof. Maybe you should take the time and refute the sources I've posted. In the meantime stay away from strawman and red herring arguments.
