Wants tougher death penalty laws


Regarding the death penalty ban: Many years ago I hear you could get hung for stealing a horse. Now, I would go along with banning this, but when someone has committed murder, I think they should be hung! Send these killers to prison and they get fed better than the guys on the outside! A few years back I read where a killer had been treated and released by a psychiatrist and went out and murdered again. If someone kills another human being they should be put to death. An eye for an eye! This is closure for the family members who have been left to suffer by the killer! I suspect that if we got a little bit tougher with the death penalty that we would not have as many killers running on the loose!
