I honestly do see what you are saying ... but can't help but think that putting down a rabid human is not much worse than putting down a rabid animal.
I say this because 'rabid' things are, and always will be, a danger to everyone around them ... and since solitary confinement seems to be too 'cruel' in our justice system, keeping these scary 2 legged creatures warm and fed and entertained 'forever' seems too good. Know this must sound cruel but while I once felt just like you do, woodyblade, I'm sadly too old now to think that evil can't walk on two legs.

I am definitely against it in all cases.
I believe killing someone for a crime they have committed is way too extreme. Life Imprisonment with Rehabilitation classes is the way to go.
I also believe they should have the right to appeal for release every 5 or so years.
Take this example, a 22 year old killed a man which is of course the worst form of crime, he is after all 22, maybe his background was poor so he had nothing to live for, maybe his background was good but lacked discipline. Anyways I believe, if found undeniably guilty then Life Imprisonment is in order but when he is 27 I believe he would be rehabilitated and the chance of a reoffence would be very low.
Whereas say he was put to death, he would never be given a second chance, he would die in pride of what he has done or die a martyr (like terrorists) giving them what they want. If say he was aware of the damage he had done to the people related to the man he killed, how he had ruined there lives forever, maybe then he would change.
If he is never given the chance, we would never know.

I'm going to sit on the fence with this one. Having said that, I think that if prison is to be the ultimate punishment for any crime, then it has to a whole lot tougher than it is here in the UK.
With some of the facilities that modern prisons have, life can be more comfortable for the perpitrator than the victim.
Prisoners should have to earn the nicer things in life like the rest of us. Prison is, after all, supposed to be a form of punishment rather than a holiday camp.
