Florida's death penalty

Florida’s death penalty law was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Today the state is set to execute a prisoner for the first time in 18 months.

    What's the problem with life sentences instead of death?

    I understand death row because people do horrible crimes and deserve to be punished, but I can't help but think about all the people who they put on death row that are innocent. And why is it the "Christians" who love death row and watching people die??

    Well, dude set to be executed is convicted of killing specifically black people in hate crimes...THIS TIME, I don't care what Florida does to the p.o.s. killing is wrong in general, but that monster was TRYING to ensure he could kill as many blacks as possible and the state dealt with him. *shrugs*

    My question is how many prisoners , have we executed. Only to find out that the prosecuting attorney failed or withheld exculpatory evidence , or police manipulated evidence or provided a false witness against the executed prisoner ???

    Death is the easy way out.. we need to figure out how we can do better. These are people..some are innocent. . Life sentences is a start.

    They say two wrong don't make it right. Killing the criminal will not fill the void the victim's family has for the loss. That emptiness will still be there after the criminal in executed. Forgiveness on the other hand is something that could relieve you of that heavy burden of revenge because you get to live your life and not think about revenge all the time.

    If you take someone else's life, you should pay the ultimate price.

    Death penalty should be mandatory for certain crimes child molestation rape and murder all fall in that category

    Hhmmm, not sure how I feel because I believe in the death penalty. I just don't trust the JUST US system...

    Death row costs more than life, and considering prison, a life sentence seems far more brutal than an execution. Life sentence also removes the chance of killing the wrong person. I don't quite understand why some people want death sentence. Can someone explain? The only thing I could think of unempathetically is not providing resources like food, water, and space to a hardcore criminal who could warrant a death sentence.

    How can people be okay with the death penalty but not with abortions? Both would still be considered taking a life. 🤔

    Killing someone is a pretty sure way of ensuring someone doesn't get released ma'am.
