    Presented without comment. I've made my opinion on the subject known.

    Well, she was smart enough to hire someone to commit murder.

    She can rot in hell.

    What purpose is served by executing her?

    There are a lot of people out there with IQs under 70. Many are sitting in prison right now.

    You can't give the dumb a right to kill, but sitting in prison for the rest of her life might be a better option than excecution.

    Yeah, because that's a civilized response.

    What purpose is served by keeping her alive?

    She is a human being.

    Other than not sanctioning murder by the state, it saves the taxpayer some money. Also prolongs her suffering, if that's what this about for you.

    Americans justifying a practice shared with countries such as Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, China and North Korea is always interesting.

    Just don't lecture the rest of the world about human rights until you ban it, OK?

    Do we need a good purpose to keep people alive?

    I'm only in favor of the death penalty in a fool-proof system.

    And as we know, the American justice system is not fool proof. Many innocent people have been executed. Not saying this woman is innocent, but it's not a perfect system either. Thus, the death penalty as we know it has to go.
