Then it would only cost the price of a bullet or a rope and scaffold (both of which are reusable). Make the family pay the costs of the burial, or if they can't afford it, throw the body into the city dump and let it rot with the rest of the garbage....
I'm sorry, but this is totally false.
LOL... Really??? You mean it's not true??? LOL....
I can't believe you took those as serious comments. Have you no sense of sardonic humor? Do you not understand sarcasm? Did you not see the " " at the end of my comment?
P.S. If I see someone rape and murder my child, I want to be allowed to torture him/her to death... but that's just my sick sense of vengeance speaking. In reality, as we've all heard before, "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord." (The Lord's sense of vengeance isn't sick... it's justice....)
Wow. . . I'm sorry that I have no idea who you are or what your views are and took your post in a serious discussion board to be truthful.
Next time I'll keep an eye out for your fantastic sense of sardonic humor.
Thanks for treating my misunderstanding with kindness and poise instead of being incredulous and acting like I was some sort of idiot for not knowing that the " " was the international sign for sarcasm.
P.S. Obviously I didn't literally believe everything you said, because I'm not an idiot. I mainly was addressing the overall idea that your 'awesome' sarcasm began with; that death row inmates cost more because the people on death row are kept there for too long, which had previously been brought up in this thread. Since I don't know you at all it was not unreasonable for me to form the conclusion that you actually believed that.
