First off, do you know how much crap they buy with the taxpayer's money?
Secondly, not all murderers have "no respect for human life".
And thirdly, we aren't 12th century crusaders here. We should learn how to respect human life by not killing off anyone who is accused of a "very bad thing".
First off, Bob and Mary shouldn't have part of their tax money go to pay for the person who killed their kid to eat, read, work out, and have a roof over their head.
Secondly, if you murder someone that isn't out of self defense you obviously have no respect for human life.
And thirdly, yes we should resect life but you have to punish people for the crime they have commited,and if their is video, eye witness, or DNA that proves someone is quilty for murdering someone than yes they should face the death penalty. Also murdering someone is a little more than a "very bad thing".
