Do you think the death penalty should be repealed?

There is absolutely no evidence that the death penalty is a deterrent. A number of death row inmates have later been exonerated, and sentencing is incredibly biased.

- Chris Acuff

No! If someone is sentenced to death, so be it! They shouldn't be able to appeal it over and over again while wasting taxpayers' monies, either!

- Jenn Clark

Yes. Too many innocent people have been proven to have been put to death. Life in prison with no chance of parole is punishment enough.

- Darrell Berry

Always wondered how those so concerned about fetal heartbeats and personhood for zygotes are so quick to endorse execution.

- Dan Alderman

Actually, the death penalty isn't used enough. And for some worthless souls there should be an express check-out. Fifteen years on death row is a bit superfluous and silly.

- Larry Henry Jr.

When Jesus was presented with the option of the death penalty, he refused it. He said only those without sin should take up a stone. I think we should follow his lead.

- Sarah Wilson

We have some true evil in the world, like the Colorado theater shooter. The death penalty is made for people like him.

- Chad Perry Tate

They need to go back to punishment - not rehabilitation - and crime would stop.
