    I feel that they should be punished reguardless...I do have to say that the punishment would be different in each case according to what seems fit for that person.

    Yes to all. I have an autistic brother and if he killed someone I think he should pay the penalty, and for that type of crime I'd say capital punishment. If you are forced however in some way, I think that should be considered. There was a pizza man who had been caught and put in a device that held a bomb, forced to rob places and find notes to keep the bomb from going off (keys inside the notes). He died, but if he had lived, I would not have punished him for the robbery. Crimes of passion (fear, anger, ect) should be taken into account and it is.

    They all should be exiled to a deserted island where there is no possible way to get off. Let them all kill each other. It certainly would save tax dollars.

    Anyone who commits a violent crime sould recieve capital punishment. Why try to habilitate them, they gave up that right when they chose to commit the crime, and why should the taxpayers pay for their existence, and they should not be allowed so many appeals, they commited the crime, why should we the taxpayers pay for their legal fees, when we can't seem to provide health care for our citizens> KLKDRUCK

    If a person commits a violent crime they should be punished. End of story!! I don't care if they are considered mentally unfit or not, they know the difference between right and wrong and should be punished accordingly. If the death penalty is one of the punishements, then so be it. They did the crime, now it time to pay the time, be it death or incarceration!!!!

    Are you really this brain dead? ANYONE WHO COMMITS A VIOLENT CRIME SHOULD BE PUNISHED! The only exception is self-defense! If you intentionally hurt someone violently and are knowledgable doing it you deserve going through the same thing times 1000. Pleading insanity becomes a great thing that EVERYONE sane does if they know the punishment will be changed in their favor. They need to make pleading insanity a far worse crime in most circumstances

    Of course violent crimes should be punished, but incarceration should be reserved for violent criminals. Other crimes such as drug users, juvenile offenders, etc. should not be sent to prison. Prisons are equivalent to a university when it comes to crime and it is senseless to send non-violent criminals to live and study with killers, rapists, etc. We need to rethink the entire jurisprudence system and make sense out of it. Are we out to punish or rehabilitate? Both? Let's decide.

    All of them need to be punished. Quit arguing about capital punishment not detering others, if you took them back to the juridiction where they killed or maimed and on the court house lawn at 12 noon open to the public and did the same to them you would see less of it. Don't hide it and make it sound humain.....We are a blood sport nation, look at NASCAR we love the wrecks, look at the ultimate fighters, Boxing, killing and bombing on TV, especially the games the kids play on their ps2 and 360's or what ever you call them. When a serial killer is known look at the excitement it causes in the media, hostage, high speed chases on and on it goes. Face it for a "Christian Nation" we chose very un Christian entertainment.

    This would be the choice...and of course, every violent crime committing person would then need to be put on capitol punishment which will then eliminate them from the gene pool..HAHAHA

    The moral is...don't commit crime...end of story.. (^.^)v

    Yes they should! More people who commit violent crimes get out of prision earlier than drug users. I don't know about you, but I feel much safer with the pot head who sits on his couch smoking a roach than some idiot who wants to rob me. So stupid!

    Well said!
    Perhaps if we did the obvious and decriminalized marijuana possession for personal use, we'd have the jail space to keep the thieves and murderers in jail where they belong!
    It's ludicrous that folks are sitting in prison right now for nothing more than marijuana possession, while those convicted of violent crime are made to do only a fraction of their sentence due to "overcrowding" of the prisons!
    Who decides this stuff? A child could see the wrong here!

    All of them are mentally disturbed so Capitol punishment would be a great way to "discourage" such behavior.

    If you are in your right state of mind, including being intoxicated, when you commit a crime you should do the time.

    Absolutely!!! There have to be consequences. Sadly a lot of folks need to know that bad things will happen if they break laws as they don't seem to be able to 'do the right thing' just because it's right. I say ... bring back the chain gangs!

    I think that someone who commits rape should get more time than someone caught with 12 individual wrapped bags of marijuana. And I dont think that the punishment should be put in the same category

    Prisons and jails are overcrowded right now. I think there should be a rehab program for those first time and second time offenders to try out (but only for certain violent crimes such as first-timer battery, assault etc) Other than that, let the punishment fit the crime... If capital punishment is necessary, i'd say do it.
    But i know a lot of people will disagree with my opinion on capital punishment.

    Interesting way of phrasing the answers, but I think people who commit the crime should spend the time (in jail or hell).
