- death is just an occupational hazard for murderers, kill all of them.
- throw them in prison, stand back, and let them kill each other. In fact, give them some cars to make it more interesting[^].
- if you kill a killer, are you really any better?
- it wouldn't really be killing anyway, we'd just euthanize them.
- murderers might as well be useful and "donate" their organs.
- murderers aren't people in the first place, so who cares what happens to them?
- death isn't good enough, force them to kill their own children so they can share the experience.
- prisoners are useful for all sorts of things, like slave labour[^] and drug testing, so throw those murderers in prison.
- no sane person would commit murder, so murderers must have a dangerous psychological disease which should be eradicated.

I'm sure that for each of these opinions, at least one person could be found who holds them.
