Why would murder skyrocket? You think life in prison is any better?

I see your point. Jeff Dahmer still got executed just not by the state.

Actually, I don’t think the impact will be on the murder rate but on the state’s ability to get criminals to turn informer or to plead guilty to a lesser offense.

Our criminal justice system is (probably mercifully) weak. The death penalty is a tool to force either cooperation or a plea deal. Without it the state will be much weaker. There will be fewer convictions and much less cooperation.

In his earlier days Hitler faced the possibility of execution for treason. I, for one, believe the world would have been a better place had he been executed.

Not to change the subject, but someone planted a suitcase bomb at Sea World. They did find it and blew it up outside the gate. Don’t really know much else yet.

Baltimore county borders the city and that threat has been keeping us safer. The criminals know that and the crime rate will soar.

The death penalty could be a deterrent if not for 30 years of appeals in its current form. Could be.

Death is death. ‘Life in prison’ isn’t. It is all part of the liberal thinking that it isn’t the criminals fault for the crime.

Probably that damned killer whale again. He should have been given the death penalty.

Yep. Amazing, isn’t it, that humankind has to keep learning the same lessons over and over and over.

There is no statisitcally significant relationship between a state's homocide rate and its death penalty laws.

Here in Baltimore County we have 1 or 2 murders a year.
Baltimore City has 300+. They haven’t enforced the penalty for decades.

I will predict today that at some point in the future, one (or more) of those on death row will be let out of prison and will go on to murder someone.

How many innocent people must die so liberals can feel good about themselves?
