    Absolutely. And the censoring of information from the media is a pretty slippery slope. We clamor for less of big brother, yet here we are asking someone else to decide what should and shouldn稚 be shown regarding news stories.

    Generally speaking I do not believe America should kill any of its citizens.

    While I am a supporter of the death penalty I do agree with your statement here.

    We'll have to agree to disagree. I know the logic behind that thought, I just disagree.

    Sorry, the media plays a part in this. They run with it on TV, radio, newspaper, internet. And they don't just run it, they run it into the ground. Practically impossible to escape it. But hey, so long as they get ratings...

    I don't view mass murderers as citizens, so I'm good with it.

    But yet many of you would support telling people what they can and can't own based on the misuse of it by some crackpot.

    You support the death penalty but not for a mass murderer?

When they were determined to be persons of interest and brought in for questioning, one of them finally caved and decided to sing, because "I decided it was just like killing myself. They eventually execute me."

    He didn't care. Not one iota. The death penalty is not a great deterrent.
    So what is? It doesn't seem like life in prison is.

    Many of who? When have I spoken about limiting what someone can and cannot own? I'm not in the ban anything group, and I'm not sure why you're lumping me in.

    No. I support the death penalty but I agree with G痴 sentiment that America shouldn稚 be in the business of killing Americans. Since killing of Americans is allowed I am good with that. If the death penalty was done away with I壇 be good with that as well.

    A general you, not you specifically. I didn't mean to accuse you.

    From people that don't get it I suppose. They should report it, but we shouldn't hear their name or see their picture and it shouldn't be anywhere near the constant that it is. Whether people want to admit it or not, the media glorifies this stuff in the minds of the next nut that considers doing things like this.
