I don't know the situation, maybe he deserves it, but the state shouldn't give it to him. I don't support the death penalty.

death penalty
I'm against the death penalty, also.

It's weird. I flip-flop quite a bit on the death penalty.

Part of me thinks an-eye-for-an-eye type punishment is a good punishment for some crimes (like for theft, make the criminal work to repay the theft), but the death penalty has not shown to be a good deterrent to murder.

It also bothers me the number of death penalty cases where after the "murderer" has been put to death that they find evidence exonerating the person, or at least casting doubt on the conviction.

Given those caveats, I am generally opposed to the death penalty.

but I still return to my stance
I have a hard time, also, especially with the horrific crimes that have been committed against little children, but I still return to my stance of being totally against the death penalty. I have many reasons for feeling this way, and one of is, as you said, finding evidence that exonerates a man on death row.

I haven't followed the story of what happened, so here's my general answer to anyone up for the death penalty:

I'm not against it, but I don't like the reasons that we choose to offer it. 99% of the time, it's a selfishly issued response, and it's not as good as the alternative.

I say when a person commits a crime serious enough that they're gonna be in for life (or subjected to the death penalty) give them the hell that is life in prison, especially if they're young. No parole. Literal life in prison. They should be coming out dead.

For the people who cry about how much it costs to house and feed a con for life, I say why are we treating them so well? They're convicted criminals, they don't deserve comfort or security for the crimes that got them there. When they get in, offer them a survival manual. And crude resources and tools. Allow them the *ability* to fashion crude non-distance weapons. Give them some running water, and unpleasant food, and let Darwin sort 'em out from there. If you live to be a grizzly old con, under high stress and discomfort for another 40 years, good for you! You're going to die in prison! If you don't, good for us! You died early in prison!

I suspect my opinion will be unpopular, yet, I don't care. (this will be noted by the lack of response to other readers who simply want to debate the point). I hate the use of the death penalty of "yeah! we showed HIM!" as an emotional response of revenge for some horrible crime committed. I'd much rather see them put in horrible, but liveable conditions, and let them see if they can avoid death or if they jump into its waiting arms on their own.

But otherwise, I don't mind any states' death penalty. It's there to get rid of the problem prisoners until I'm warden of the system, and then we're going to have some fun with it.

abolish it
That's okay; you have every right to state your feelings about whatever you wish.

The verdict came in, seconds after I made this post. The jury has spared his life, of which I'm glad, because I'm against the death penalty.

I wasn't too happy that he'll be eligible for parole after 57 years. I feel he should have been given life without parole, because when he murdered his ex girlfriend, he left the dead woman's tiny little boy alone with her. If I remember correctly, he called 911 and said that his mother was asleep on the carpet and wouldn't wake up.

If it were possible, I'd abolish the death penalty.

I like the previous guys' idea, escape from NY style prisons.

But I digress. I absolutely believe that he should get the death penalty. As a police officer he should be held to a higher standard than the average citizen. As a police officer, he is given special rights, legally, and should anything happen to him, a special punishment. In every state in the US, if you kill a cop, you die. Police officers are deemed to be of more worth to society at large than your average Joe, and they should act accordingly.

Myself, as a paramedic in my home state, if I am assaulted or killed I am treated as a police officer would be. I, therefore, hold myself to a higher standard of behavior. Police officers are supposed to protect and serve, I think it's justified to expect them to uphold those standards in whatever they do. The blatant disregard that this man had for the mother of his children sickens me, and if they don't fry him, I hope he enjoys a long miserable life in prison.

have a problem with the sentence
I am totally against the death penalty for so many reasons, and I'm glad his life was spared. Now mind you, after watching countless videos both on Youtube, and in the news about police brutality, I've come to distrust cops completely, and I've come to feel more terrorized than ever when I see one.

I do have a problem with the sentence, because he got a little over 50 some years. I feel he should have gotten life with no parole ever. One things for sure, he will be living the next 50 years in hell. Can you imagine the terror he will live with, knowing that all the inmates know he's an ex-cop who murdered a pregnant woman, and left the small child alone with his dead mother?!

87 years old
No death penalty for him, but he will die a million deaths for the next 57 years in prison! He'll be out with he's 87 years old, that is if the inmates permit him to live that long.

He was very glad that his life was spared, but he won't be for long, knowing he'll spend 57 years in the pin. I know the inmates are waiting for him!

That's up to him. If he gives consent to their authority and further consents to the judge's sentence, then there is your answer. But in my opinion, it's wrong to harm another living being.

don't feel it's wrong to kill
The man is scum and should rot in hell, but I feel killing a helpless human-being is wrong, but I don't feel it's wrong to kill a man or woman during times of war, or to kill someone who is trying to kill you in civilian life.

He was given 57 years. I'm sure General Population will severely maim or kill him before he's ever out.

I honestly haven't paid much attention to the case. I read the gist of his defense, where he claimed that he committed manslaughter, domestic battery, and desecration of a corpse (that is, hit Jesse Davis, killed her by mistake, and dumped her body out of panic). That alone would put him away for a long time...

Impossible for me to say.

I do not know why Savanah but when I read this I thought you might like to read it too
It comes from a book by Clarissa Pinkola Estes called "Women Who Run with the Wolves"

YOUR ASSIGNMENT
by Clarissa Pinkola Estes

I assign you to be a beautiful, good, kind, awakened, soulful person, a true work of art as we say, ser humano, a true human being. In a world filled with so much darkness, such a soul shines like gold; can be seen from a far distance; is dramatically different.

Want to help? Show your deepest most divine self to the world. There is nothing more rare, more strange, more needed. Why would you wait? Not worthy? Oh piffle. Not ready? Okay, so when? Next lifetime? Don't be silly with me about this. Inferiority complex? Okay, let me put it this way to you: you're not good enough to think you're not good enough. And you can quote me to yourself whenever you have need... Dr. Estes said so.

Have you forgotten that you made promises to your Beloved before you ever came to earth? The time to fulfill these is truly now. You want to cease feeling helpless, and you want to help the aching world? Serve someone and something. Everyone on earth serves someone and something. This means being your truest self now, fulfilling the promises you made to heaven long ago.

Anything you do from the soulful self will help lighten the burdens of the world. Anything. You have no idea what the smallest word, the tiniest generosity can cause to be set in motion. Be outrageous in forgiving. Be dramatic in reconciling. Mistakes? Back up and make them as right as you can, then move on. Be off the charts in kindness. In whatever you are called to, strive to be devoted to it in all aspects large and small. Fall short? Try again. Mastery is made in increments, not in leaps. Be brave, be fierce, be visionary. Mend the parts of the world that are "within your reach." To strive to live this way is the most dramatic gift you can ever give to the world.

Consider yourselves assigned.

P.S. Too, limit the amount of news you watch or listen to, remembering that sensationalism's goal is to bring in advertising dollars, and thusly certain sources may not bring the most accurate news casting. For risks you hear about that are accurate, take reasonable measures. For what you cannot do anything about, pray for those who can. Prayer is a mantle of protection for other souls, a tower of psychic strength for others to lean on. For risks that are dreamed up in the Chicken Little, "the sky is falling" overwrought style," file them under Poof!

Invest yourself in humor as often as possible; find friends to laugh with. Everyone should have at least one very funny friend, and at least two others who love to laugh themselves silly. Read funny books. Go to funny movies. For many, right now is not the time to go see Chainsaw Massacre on 33rd Street. Now is the time to create memories of the good kinds. This is done by gathering together with those you care for and doing something you all can remember with smiles afterward.

It may not be the way I would of said it myself and every thing she said may not mean any thing to you but there is some good advise I just thought I would share this with you Sunshine
