Quote from: Big J on April 21, 2022, 08:44:01 AMI agree with Phil's statement. But honestly, I feel like most of the people on death row wrongly were from the 80's and 90's when court systems were more racist and just wanted to bring someone up on the charges and it didn't matter who it was. I'm assuming with advancements in forensics that this sort of issue is becoming less and less. I'd like to see some statistics though to back up my assumption.That said, there are some heinous unfixable people in this world that are flat out evil and demented. I believe the death penalty services a purpose for people like this. People can harden their hearts past the point of return and show no remorse for the gruesome acts they committed. I think the death penalty should be set aside for the unremorseful heinous crimes and for the most part today, I think that is the case.
Quote from: Dougfish on April 21, 2022, 18:12:41 PMI worked for a guy for two summers during my time at VT. Tree service. Death defying chain saw work.He was a weird dude. Very Christian. He could not drive the bucket truck down the road and talking without looking at you in the passenger seat. I was always fixed on the road. He asked me one day what was wrong. "Somebody has to watch the road, Neal!"His wife Faith left him one day and took their girl and boy. He tracked her down a few years later and drowned her in her bathtub in front of their son.Got life in prison. I would have been OK with death. Premeditated, in front of his child! Son testified against him. Still in prison. Up for parole a few times, denied.He fucked up his family, his wife's family, trusted members of his church and community. Life or death?

QuoteFrom a medical standpoint, opioids can cause vomiting, which would force the execution to be delayed as allowing a person to violently regurgitate while they're being killed would be considered cruel and unusual punishment.
