People who shoot girls in Central Columbia will someday likely be on death row, if not stopped by a good Policeman.

Some people are not capable of changing and their predilections affect too many other lives. The world is better off without them.

Life in prison has proved NOT to be a deterrent. Death penalty is.

Romans 13:4, For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer (Sword refers to the govt’s authority to punish rebels, even by death)

Fred Jones was a kind man. Anyone who would kill him, and the others, in the manner that was done, deserves the full punishment of the law, without exception. Public hanging would be acceptable.

These degenerates that stay on death row for decades using state money for clothing, food, medical care, housing, etc should be put to death within 180 days of sentencing. Save the state millions

instead of funding the death penalty fund for an influx of therapist and psychologists and implement true rehab and make them do daily community work via supervision such as picking up litter or working in sanitation.

As long as we find one false convition in a thousand, we should halt this Barbaric behavior! Set the Example, not the standard of "If you hurt me, I hurt you!" and Don't give me the Bible says "An eye for an eye", that was before the dispossion of Grace given by Jesus Christ. Time to move forward.

Has that worked in the past? NO. Now we have prisons full of 'vacationing' murderers, getting 3 meals a day & cable & internet.

Stupid decisions do cause unfair loss of life. We just lost 13 fine Americans because of a stupid decision. So we must be careful, but with capital punishment there are no repeat offenders.

1/2: There's no way to predict the future with certainty, but historically Democrats and Republicans have had difficulty working together, often prioritizing their own political agendas over the good of the country.

2/2: That being said, it's possible for them to come to a compromise on certain issues if both sides are willing to work together in good faith.

They will work together to run up the national debt on pork projects. Anyone who plays by the rules and saves money for their kid's education or (gasp) retirement, will be the losers as inflation reduces the value of your hard earned money.

Democrats would rather have political issues they can use to buy votes so they can stay in power, than to actually solve problems.

Joe's speech was magnificent. Nearly every sentence was slurred or had mispronounced words. His Unity message was clearly my way or the highway. He certainly sealed his chances to run again in 2024. He truly represents the Democratic Party of 2023.
