    "They did the crime - now allow them to pay the debt to society by being in prison"

    That is more like letting society pay the debt to the criminal.

    Dr. Dataclerk didn't mean to get u so worked up. U actually think that someone would send their child to u when u are acting worser than the average child? If all u can do is try to insult instead of having an adult conversation, your not even worth the the work of my fingers. Point is, no I had no one but I knew there was more to life. No I don't need any of your advice, the ? was do u mentor and if not take your own advice and go mentor. Have a good day.

    Have you ever heard the saying an eye for an eye............

    I don't hold grudges. Get the Lord in your life and you won't either. First of all, eye for an eye is in the old testament you should read the new testament. There is a whole lot of meaning in it.

    If you do the death penalty, then the criminal has not paid his death to society. Remember the dead is dead. But sice th criminal is well and alive allow him/her to live in prison for the justly wrong that they down.

    Dr. Dataclerk Obviously you have never had violent crime happen to one of your family members. If someone killed your mother or your child you wouldn't want them to pay the price. Maybe if it happened you would change your mind about the death penalty. Have you ever heard the saying an eye for an eye............

    It was just the four of us - father - mother - sister who has passed away. I don't believe in the death penalty but I do believe in the Life without parole. Why, these criminals would love to be on the outside commiting more crime. They really don't like it inside the prisons lock-up. Its not clean, the food is an issue etc. I have wrote to some that had life and several years in prison. They did the crime - now allow them to pay the debt to society by being in prison for whatever the judge and jury said. Don't you go an do something stupid and then my dear, you will find out quickly what prison life is about.
