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.

    Replace the lethal injection with the classic, legendary " The Guillotine " and let death row inmates realize how efficient the process goes. Beheaded.... lesson learned.

    I believe in the Death penalty, people who kill children just for the fun of it or anyone should be considered for that option.

    1. It cost less money to in prison an inmate for life then have him on death row wasting state money going through an appeals process that takes years. 2. I have not seen nor heard of any evidence that a state with a death penalty has less egregious crimes being committed (murder, rape) compared to states that don't offer the death penalty. 3. There has been numerous examples of inmates being found innocent after they were executed because of new evidence...perfect example an inmate just had his execution stayed by the governor of Missouri a couple days ago because of new DNA evidence. What if he had been executed as planned? 4. "An eye for an eye leaves everyone blind." -Unknown. Executing someone for murder or other heinous acts won't bring that person back to loved ones and there death won't fill the hole in their heart. Sad but true.

    We are outraged. Outraged that you can agree in this day and age to put a human being to death.

    Tell that to the families that lost a loved one bc of some psycho killed and raped them...how is that constitutional? I think the motherfuckers should die the same way they killed their victim or victims. They want to ban the death penalty bc they will lose money for everyone they execute bc they won't get money for that person sitting in jail anymore

    I am in support if repeat offenders being offered the death penalty. If someone murders 2 people in different occasions or in the case of molestation, the same statute would and should apply.

    I don't know how I feel about this, I don't think it is ever okay to take someone's life except for defending yourself or someone else. However keeping them alive in prison is also as bad. I don't know but I would never wanna make that decision

    Death penalty should be immediate. No long waits costing taxpayers.

    Yeah. Great idea. Well just spend all the money clothing, housing, and feeding these losers. 👌🏻👌🏻 should just go back to public hangings and shootings. Cheapest ways possible!
