  1. Well, well! The tide is changing, eh?
    There is no value to human life anymore in our world. Murdering someone is just as easy as spitting on them.
    THANK YOU, DEMOCRATS, for doing away with the death penalty here! Statistics show that those who get the death penalty, NEVER commit crimes again! Of course, they can’t vote for your party anymore either. Oh wait…My mistake.

    1. So just the obvious: please detail the point in human history when murder did not exist or was not easy. Please list the states that have the death penalty AND have zero murders.

      1. He stated that those who get the death penalty NEVER commit crimes again

        If you are sentenced to death how can you possibly commit another crime? This should be good
