  1. Prison alone doesn’t stop murderers from committing murder. I think the death penalty should be legal in all states. However, when in fact it’s FINALLY time for them to be put to death, it’s just as humane as when a sick, injured or old beloved pet is put to rest, and I think this is a joke. In 1981, six yr old Adam Walsh was kidnapped and only his head was discovered weeks later. His murderer was a serial killer who also tortured several women! His victims suffered yet he was treated humanly until he died of renal failure. Even if made it to the day he finally got death from the State, a lethal injection would have been the method and in his case I feel that would have been too easy. I say let all the victims family members have it their way. Why do criminals have so many rights? If convicted of a horrible crime causing bodily injury before they kill their victim, they deserve a horrible death!! The laws protect the evil. Its so wrong!
