    Seeing the Sadam poll i was wondering what people think of it in general?

    I often wonder myself what is the worst punishment. Personally i think that if someone is sentenced for life without a chance to get out get a harder punishment then someone that's sentenced to death. Why the last one only suffers for a short time while imprissoned for life gives the person a very long time to think about what he has done! Also it is not so definitive solution, in case of false conviction, which sometimes happens
    Also don't really believe in the eye for an eye punishment.

    So basicly, i'm against it.

    It is institutionalised murder.

    I am against it, in every circumstance.

    Tho' I am finding it difficult to answer "are you for or against it" with a yes or no.

    I can't choose, but for other reasons.

    I feel that if we could somehow combine the death penalty with life imprisonment, we might approach proper punishment.

    This is one area where I give full rein to my feelings, rather than my logic.

    I am aware of how this view must seem to others, but there you have it.

    Can I assume that :

    Yes = For It.

    No = Against It.

    I am for it but only because there is an absence of another punishment......exile.
    I would propose a "jailing" similiar to that of the movie No Escape. The worst of the worst is put on an island with others of their like. Therefore government can wash their hands of murder (which the death penalty is).
    There is barley enough room, at least in the US, for the prisoners we already have.

    Exile the vermin away and monitor the island for those trying to escape. If they kill each other, so be it.

    I think you&#39;ve hit on it directly, sir.

    Unending fear and isolation.

    And no access to appeal.

    What a comforting thought.
