Quote:
Has nothing to do with justice
Wrong. You asked what my motives were. I told you. You are not qualified to tell me what my motives are. You may not agree, but for me, it is justice.

Quote:
It's not a deterrent,
First off, who ever said justice was about deterring people? Secondly, why isn't it a deterrent? Are you suggesting life in jail is more of a deterrent than the death penalty? The problem is, for cruel murderers, there IS NO DETERRENT.

Quote:
add anything productive nor anything of value.
But neither does letting them live. I thought you were arguing to keep them alive?

Quote:
There is always doubt.
No there isn't. There are witnesses, confessions, etc.

Quote:
even with 500 witnesses you'd have to rule out that you didn't accidentally apprehended his twin.
Well, if we can't do that then we have bigger problems.

Quote:
Same goes for any person. Why keep sick people alive? Any good reason to do so?
Either you truly believe this which is sick and insane or you are trying to make an analogy. You can't possibly compare a sick person to a murderer.

Quote:
people who want to bring the death-penalty back
In many places, it isn't gone.

Quote:
not my problem
Then why worry about it?
There are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.
