I have very mixed emotions about execution as viewed in a what is better for society sort of way. My first thought is who the hell are we to take someones life? Put them in prison with no friggin tv, no news, only censored books and magazines for entertainment and let them rot there. No torture, just a walk around the grounds a day for exercise, you know what I mean.
But then on the same respect I have a fierce PERSONAL feeling is if you touch another human being in a crime like a purse snatching or strong arm robbery that sort of thing, you NEED to die, you need to be eliminated from society permanently in every way, we don't need you. If you enter someones home while there are inhabitants in the home, you NEED to die, a little harsh but thats how I see it personally, I know it's not the right thing for society so I will have to default back to my original statement.
