IF they are deprived the rights of adults until a certain age, then they shouldn't be punished as adults.
    We differ on the DP although neither of us would want to see any innocent person wrongfully put to death, but your latter points are spot on. How is it tenable to judge a child as deserving of execution when society deems them as not having the same rights as adults and with very good reason for their own protection? It's incredible that folk who are supposedly so anti abort would be so quick to pull the plug on a child outside of the womb and very telling that they're so unwilling to address the topic.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    me

    I'd have no problem executing the ten year old on the right, who is in the process of kidnapping the little two year old on the left, so that he and his friend can spend the afternoon torturing and murdering him



    here's the two ten year olds planning their crime:



    and here's the two of them leading their victim to his death:





    I'd have no problem springing the door, or throwing the switch, or casting the first stone at those two

    Liberals love the system that produced this:



    A system that includes the regular murder of babies in the womb.

    And they have the temerity to accuse those of us who endorse justice of believing something bad.

    In a society that loved justice, these murderers would never have arisen.

    It's much more important to worry about how we might kill 6 yr. olds.

    We are so deplorable.

    So who is really at fault?

    The "system" or the parents who failed to raise these two up correctly, perhaps?

    The parents likely have a lot to answer for. The system is the thing that needs to be changed.

    You think the "system" produces killers? A system that "loves justice" still doesn't execute children and that's not to say I agree with how things progressed after they were locked up. It was quite obvious that Venables was a danger and even though he's serving a prison sentence currently for possession of child pornography then that sentence is way too short and IMO he should be locked up for life. None of this justifies the notion that children should be regarded as adults where it comes to crime and Rusha succinctly explained as to why already.
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Sorry Jerry, abortion and execution ARE NOT the same thing. Abortion is murder of an innocent while execution is the culmination of a legal process. This thread is about the legal process of killing a three year old child because s/he was playing with a gun and shot and killed its mother. There are people on this board that state that that is a capitol crime and the child deserves to be executed for it. Arthur is just asking if there are people who are willing to carry out God's justice by killing the child.

    "Moral standards" are a lot like lighthouses: they exist to help us stay on course as we sail through life. But we have to steer BY them, but not directly AT them. Lest we end up marooned on the shoals of perpetual self-righteousness.

    Sorry Stripe but you are wrong. Abortion is a murder. Execution is the culmination of a legal process. Get your terms straight so you can discuss the topic rationally.

    Babies are murdered in abortions. Nobody cares about what you have to say.
