Default Tall Tree, Short Rope?

With all the crimes of today and things only seeming to get worst.
Does anyone think that the Laws should be changed to the way they used to do it back in the day of a tall tree, short rope?
If you are convicted of murder I think that is what should happen. Not just for punishment, but to save us as tax payers of having to keep these slime bags up and fed. I know that there wouldnt be Bengals Football Team, but they are wanting a new franchise in L.A. anyway.
What ya think?

The sarcasm aside of the bungles, I do believe that utilizing some of the "Old School" laws would do one of two things:

1) deter future criminal acts
2) eliminate society of the scum, alleviating the burden on society of them being in jail

Either way it's win-win.

And you call yourself a Christian?

Read the news. How many people have had their CONVICTIONS (your word) for murder overturned within the last 10 years by modern forensics and DNA testing?

Our court system is the best we can do, but it isn't perfect. We try, but we get it wrong sometimes.

I tell you what. I'll accept your proposal. But YOU have to be the one doing the hanging. YOU have to choose the tree, YOU throw the rope over it, and YOU look the accused in the eye as you tighten the knot and drop the trapdoor. And then YOU have to stand before your god and explain your actions on your judgement day.

Utilizing today's DNA technology should significantly reduce the "errors" of days gone by! I agree, if you are found guilty of murder, especially a serial murderer, then let's not waste time and money - an Eye for an Eye!

Only if there is 100% proof of the crime, even 1 person the is innocent and accidentally executed due to bad evidence is too many.

I undertand that it's not perfect but what bothers me about the current system is that scumbag lawyers utilize weak loopholes in the system to multiple offenders off the cuff, even though there is plenty of evidence to convict the sob's.

Claiming that convicts have some sort of rights. Sorry but your rights were taken away when you took away the rights of an innocent victim.

But I guess we'll have to agree to disagree.

Yeah, I didn't expect a free pass. I wish there was a better way, too.

How about revamping our drug laws so that we concentrate on keeping the REAL bad guys out of society? I'm strongly anti-drug, but putting people in jail isn't working.

I'm all for it too. However, the problem also stems from failure to enforce current laws on the books, especially with all the loopholes in the system.

I think lawmakers need to go back, fix the loopholes, revamp the letter of the law to have more stringent consequences and then give the authorities the power to enforce them.

Another thing we need to do is stop giving out free passes to athletes, artists, and foreign diplomats (I really hate diplomatic immunity). If you break a law too bad - you get what the average joe gets.

Generalizing a bit aren't we? Actually most proesecutors have conviction rates that are in the mid to high 90%'s There are very few criminals that get OJ's lawyers ---they don't "get off" easily.

The "weak loopholes" you are talking about is probably most often the fourth amendment to the Constitution which prohibits unreasonable search and seizure. That was put in place by the founding fathers to protect our personal liberties---and prevent the government and police from harassing innocent people. No the system isn't perfect, but lets think a bit before we give all of our freedoms back. Because believe it or not---that fourth amendment might be important to you someday.
I guarantee good citizens of a lot of countries in the world would love to have it.
