THE QUESTION

Do you think the death penalty should be repealed?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.

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

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