I mean, back in the pilgrim days, theyd take these two guys from the cheshire thing and exile them to the woods, away from the village, on their own, and they werent allowed to come back. We could do that today if there werent so many humans and buildings. Hey, i have a good idea... why not kill off the people who commit atrosious acts of violence, less cons = less prisons = less humans taking up all the open space = places to banish law breakers to... there ya go, this forum could now be closed as i just solved the whole "To kill or not to kill" thing!!!

Why are we always trying to change each others minds? this is insane, If your against the death penalty, so be it, dont murder someone and you wont have to worry about being put down or not. I dont like wine, so that means we should ban the sale of wine right? I mean, its bad to drink anyhow, you cant drive drunk, you cant go walk around with a bottle of booze, swigging away out on the sidewalk.. and ..gasp... you will become an alcohaulic too plus my morals and ethics are against it so everyone else's should too. Why is it so important that the state and everyone in it have to change its laws and rules because some dont think its moral or right? If thats your argument, forget...its not a good one Why cant you abide by the rules and laws of the State of CT? Because you and a few others dont like something doesnt mean everyone has to be against it.. I think this fight isnt worth the effort, if you really wanna help make things better, go get Malloy to loosen his grip on our wallets and purses or go to your local volunteer center and sighn up to help kids or animals or clean a street. Heck there is sooo much stuff to actually be done, physical stuff, work that will provide instant results and help make someone elses burdon a little easier.. Oh wait, they cant be done while at home on a PC... Oh well, forget I said anything. Who the heck wants to volunteer time and energy or even money when they can sit at home and yell about how bad things are for free?

What I realy dont understand about those who want to get rid of the DP, if the state correctional people are doing it and you arent there to witness it, why does it bother you so much that you need to take it away from those who want it? You arent killing a person, you arent going to hell or what ever it is you think is gonna happen to oyu, the blood isnt on your hands... so whats all this arguing about? if the laws NEED to be changed, why not let the victems family decide if the guilty gets the DP or not but if they decide not to, they should have to pay a monthly tax that goes directly to the guilty person to help off set his cost of living. Not that the family is or will be punished for not giving the guilty person death, just because I think if money is involved, most victems families will ask, "so, which switch do we need to trow to fry him?"
