Happening Now! Hosted Chat: The Death Penalty. In LL Chat.

The Death Penalty: Tonight 7:00pm EST (12am GMT).



Yes, it's also a bit of a grim one but none the less a subject that seems to split the common opinion in more ways than one. We'll not only be focusing on the death penalty itself but also reflecting on its effectiveness, the point of such a penalty, and even the methodology and mechanics of it.

If you'd like to join in this hosted chat simply make sure you are logged into your LiveLeak account then hit the CHAT button on the lower nav bar. This will take you to our chat landing page where you can enter a room of your choosing. Once you are in chat you will see the Hosted Chat room where this will be taking place.

About our hosted chats. One member described the last like a radio talk show where you could chat via a "message board" at the same time. We try to make sure as many people as possible get their thoughts aired either on mic or via having their question / point read out. We do have some very simple rules for our hosted chats to ensure things don't degenerate into madness. They are:

1) When you get in to the room do NOT simply jump on your mic. If you wish to make a point on Mic then send a PM to either the host (myself in this instance) or any mod in the room and you will be called to the mic when it's your turn.

2) If you have a point you'd like to make via text because you either don't have a mic or you're uncomfortable speaking then simply send it via PM to the host and it will be addressed. Don't get annoyed if it takes a while though, the private messages tend to fly in at an alarming rate.

Apart from that normal LiveLeak rules apply. The last two hosted chats have been both interesting and entertaining so I hope you guys can join us for this next one. Also I'm always interested in hearing about any topics you'd like to see raised in a hosted chat so if you have any ideas please send me a private message here through the main site.

See you tonight!

  • I believe in an eye for an eye. If you commit murder you should forfeit your life in return as punishment. Sure it may be expensive to execute some one but it's even more expensive to house them and feed them for the rest of their lives not to mention medical bills if they become ill that the state has to cover, that money could be put in to different areas of the state to better the public who didn't screw up and become a criminal. Prisons are already cramped as it is here in the states and More..

  • chances are if you end up on the gurney then you deserve to die, no point in rehabilitation when it gets that bad, you take a life you give your own, why lethal injection is used is beyond me. a bullet to the head in plain room with a drain in the middle for clean up is the way to go.

  • The death penalty is the right thing to do in most cases, however, one needs to consider the people that have spent many years in prison, only to fine out by DNA testing that the person was wrongfully convicted. In many cases they were convicted on someones word or I witness testimony. If not for that, I would pull the switch myself!!

    • @keen Sure. That's why I wrote 100%. Our system allows for the death penalty in cases where the case proof is far from convincing. Just a bunch of asshole jurors who think they got it right. That needs to be tightened. The cases you're talking about have had their share of doubts. When a case is clear cut, those animals should be killed.

  • I'm 100% for the death penalty.

    1) Don't have to support scum with taxpayer money for decades while they serve out a life sentence.

    2) Prevention. Sure exterminating one murdering scumbag won't stop others but it sure as hell will stop that one.

    Sanctity of life is inane. It's only evoked for murderers, but the victims don't seem to qualify.

    Typical Liberal hypocrite propaganda.

    • @floydy1 It's only more expensive because they keep pandering to the Libtard lawyer's appeals. That, of course takes years and is very expensive. Injection within 4 hours of the guilty verdict is the way to go.

      No, you need to put people in prison.
      The death penalty is barbaric and that is why it is outlawed in Europe which is the most advanced part of the world when it comes to being civilised. Let's face it, the USA does not have the death penalty in 17 states and even in most of those that do, they are carried out so infrequently. It's just a matter of time before it is banned in all states. I mean, people still murder don't they, even when they know the death penalty exists. A quest More..

      An infant is from age 0 to 1 or 2 years old.

      So your comment doesnt make sence.

      Also abortion is from 0 weeks to 11/12 weeks after impregnation and that you call an Embryo.

      After 11 weeks it becomes a Fetus and aborting a Fetus is illegal.

      Aborting an infant is not possible because you become an infant after birth ahhahah retard

    • @666HoboFromHell666 You're wrong about the legality in weeks. A mother can have a second term abortion commonly in the US. Proponents of abortion constantly push to legalize the late term abortion procedure. Our current president allowed legislation to pass without voting in Illinois that allows live-born babies to die by withholding aid.

      And spare me the difference in terms between infant and fetus. The difference between the two after viability is simply a few layers of the mother skin.

  • I would be ALL for the death penalty. However, because of all the stupid regulations and human decency, it costs more to execute someone than it does to imprison them for life. They should just have one death penalty, throw them in a windowless hole until they starve to death.

    • @Jmills It DOES NOT cost more to execute in the United States prison system. A prisoner costs $40,000+ a year to house. The injection for the procedures costs less than $1,000. The costs come from all the appeals and rights that we give to convicted killers and of course California spends the most on this....liberals can't run a fucking budget to save their lives. Fuck, they could save more money if we just used a $0.25 bullet.

  • An eye for an eye. Then put it on cable and make money killing murderers instead of spending money on them. Those that serve life sentences should have to do manual labor in chain gangs for free in whatever state they're in. All those people in jail just sitting around getting more connections for when they get out, getting all pumped up so when they get released they can do it all over again.
