    Danny Rolling executed for five murders

    http://www.heraldtribune.com/apps/pb...NEWS/610260665

    It's rediculous it took 16 years to get this over with.

    Although this man commited terrible crimes, i do not believe anyone should have there life taken away from them, no matter what the crime.

    The person should be punished serveraly (i.e. life in prison) but taking someones life is wrong and should be banned thoughout all US states.

    so its fine he can take lives but we cant take his?

    I can see maybe if someone killed "a" person becuase that person MAY be innocent and falsely accused, but 5 people.....i'd hand him.

    Would you feel the same had he murdered your son or daughter?


    That's what I thought.

    A life in prison is a far worse punishment than death. Basically you're praying everyday you die until you actually do in prison, while you just get executed and it's over with. What would you rather go through?

    He got many years of prison and death. That's more than fair.

    it's BS in my eyes.

    Nobody has the right to decide when someone else dies, and it's just as wrong to execute someone as it was for them to murder the people they did.

    With this rationale when someone steals your car you should go take theirs. It's the same thing.

    I just don't believe the death penalty is humane

    I think that would be a just punishment for car thief, if they steal your car then you get their car of equal or greater value.

    I see execution for this as just, mainly due to the fact that the government and our tax dollars go to paying for these peoples room and board within prisons. Anyone who takes another life should have theirs taken away without a doubt.

    Why should we waste time 'punishing' them when most seem not to care about what they've done.... since so many people believe in God, then they should leave it to 'Him' to deal with such people. Execution is simply making the system more efficient and weeding out those who are the complete and absolute dregs of society

    Justice is just a form of mass revenge.

    And what right did he have to kill those innocent people? No one gave him the right to kill them. He broke the law now he's fair game, simple.

    Unless you don't have a problem spending your tax dollars to feed him, clothe him, etc. the rest of his life while he rotted in prison?

    Anyone who thinks his life should not have been taken away are just softies. There's a difference between killing, and killing bad people. He's lucky it wasn't painful, if it was my decisions, he'd be tortured to death.

    I didn't say he had a right to do anything But it sure doesn't give anyone the right to choose his fate. That's not our call.

    As for the 'softie' statement. that's ignorant.

    That's a very good logic if an innocent target of convenience were being killed to avenge the murders. Executing the actual perpetrator is not a wrong.

    Actually, a life sentence is actually cheaper than the death penalty. Not because the chemicals to kill them cost a lot...

    But think about it. What's going to take up more of courts time in appeals, public defender hours, courts, etc...life sentence or death sentence.

    Society has always used punishment to discourage would be criminals from unlawful action. Since society has the highest interest in preventing murder, it should use the strongest punishment available to deter murder, and that is the death penalty. If murderers are sentenced to death and executed, potential murderers will think twice before killing for fear of losing their own life.

    which is why theres no murder in the US...

    or maybe its the reason the murder (homicide?!) rate is so low...?

    Perhaps we should change the laws to allow fewer appeals, Federal cases take about 5 years, state cases take like 17.

    I respect everyone's opinion. However, I do not believe in the death penalty as it goes against my personal beliefs.
