    Marshall, Moran, Millguard and Truscott and more have been wrongly convicted. Maybe you are next!!
    Canada’s record of getting it right is dismal.
    Besides, I want murderers who have little hope of reform, such as Bernado, Olson, Williams and Picton to languish in a tiny cell until they are dead. The few dollars I will pay are worth it.
    I happen to believe there can be forgiveness for these creeps if they regret what they did and seek forgiveness. So, if they repent and are forgiven and executed – they go to heaven. Good – but not too fast. They can tarry on this damned earth for a while with the rest of us.
    And by the way, if we could control politcian’s spending, we would save far more money than we would by executing a few killer.

    To the commenter: Your right. A real life sentence would be a far better option to be fighting for. 1st degree murder should be life with virtually no chance for parole.

    As far as money goes: New Jersey, fighting a massive budget deficit, recently scrapped the death penalty. One of the calculations in their figuring was it was cheaper to keep someone in prison for the rest of their life than execute them.

    That said, I’d hang Bernardo and Williams tomorrow if I thought we could do it and no Guy Paul Moran’s would get caught in the net, but history tells us that’s simply isn’t so.

    1st degree murder should be life with NO chance of parole. And I have to agree that Capitol punishment doesn’t deter anyone.

    If we keep them in prison, we pay prison guards.
    If we try to execute them, lawyers will make a bloody fortune – at taxpayer’s expense!

    Murder is murder whether it is by a citizen or by the government. The death should never be allowed in any civilized country.

    If the Government can allow Abortion then having a death penalty is no different, an eye for an eye seems appropriate.

    Brian, I oppose the death penalty, but a death penalty for some is more appropriate than abortion is for the innocent unborn.
    Abortion is murder – plain and simple. Premeditated murder.
    Abortionists, and those who support abortion, may burn in hell.
