Yes, but only if convicted of treason. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Stanford, CA
Yes and don't let murders sit on death row for decades. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Clarkston, GA

Yes, but only in certain circumstances in which a heinous crime has been committed and there is DNA evidence against the person. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Hanover, NH
It depends. A four year shouldn't be killed, but a person who's committed atrocitites like Hitler needs to die. 6 years ago from a Libertarian in Dover, NJ
It depends on both how bad the crime is/was and how long the minimum sentence would be. Sentencing someone to 150 yrs of prison IS a death penalty, just slow and torturous. 6 years ago from a Democrat in Wilmette, IL

Only as a last resort -- i.e., prison has proved to be incapable of protecting society from him/her. This would include crimes committed while serving a life sentence, or jailbreaks while serving a life sentence, or perhaps directing a murderous... 6 years ago from a Democrat in Alexandria, VA
