"Cold-blooded murderers deserve the death penalty as well"In my opinion, we do not utilize capital punishment enough in this country. What are everyone's thoughts on this?
I think capital punishment ought to be the default punishment for anyone who rapes, trafficks, or molests a prepubescent child, as well as those who create, distribute, or watch pornography involving said age group. Severe physical child abuse ought to warrant the same. (Not spankings; I mean these cases where they recover 50 pound 12-year-olds; kids beaten black and blue, kids living in squalor and animal feces, etc.)
Cold-blooded murderers deserve the death penalty as well. Not crimes of passion, but premeditated, calculated murders and murder/kidnappings.
These thoughts come to my mind whenever I read a heinous news story and know the perpetrator will get off in five or ten years.`
It is disturbing how a lack of empathy has much to do with this. This searing of the conscience comes in many forms in our day, because justice is not being served on the murderers. Prisons should be outlawed as it is a breeding ground for it too.
