Dear Warden of Florida State Prison,

You are a MURDERER. You are NO BETTER than the criminals who you strap to the gurney and pump full of those chemicals. I feel utterly ashamed to be from the same species as you.

Rot in hell, you evil loathsome bastard.

I so agree. How is it ok for the goverment to murder? Yo can not punish someone by doing to them what they did. If it wrong for one to kill it is wrong for everyone. The goverment is no better than common people.

i disagree, no one said government was better than the common people. the death penalty is a more humane punishment than life in prison, in my opinion. they dont have to suffer through anything or live through the guilt, they get to stop everything in its tracks and run away from their problems. do NOT call these people killers, its not even their choice, they're just doing their job and what was decided by the courts previously. anyway im sure this person deserved way worse than dying.

It's not their choice, they're just doing their job... wasn't it their choice to take the job?

Just seems a little odd to me that the judicial system is against killing yet is content to do just that.

The only people that are against the death penalty are those that have an interest in the convicted. Either through family, friend or a feeling of holier than thou. The convicted and executed never gave the chance to their victims, they killed without thought for them or their families. I find very little sympathy for someone who kills and then "Finds God" and expects to be forgiven. Too late for sympathy, step up and reap what you sowed, they are responsible for their own actions.
