Fine by me. Anyone who murders others, rapes people, or commits other extremely violent offenses deserves to meet their maker

All will meet their maker, whether or not they are executed by the state.

500 state sponsored executions.
And there still are murders happening in Texas.

BTW - Chris B
Any State powerful enough to execute it's citizens for any reason,
is TOO powerful.

The United States is the only nation in the civilized world to still hold State executions.
Puts us right along side such bearers of humanity such as Iran, China, North Korea, Botswana, Somalia, and Iraq.

BTW - the citizens of Nazi Germany learned too late that that kind of power already granted and used can be turned against ANYONE at ANYTIME for ANY Reason.
