Yes, I agree with capital punishment
I agree with capital punishment, but only for particularly gruesome murders. The alternative is to feed these scum in jail for the rest of their lives – with your taxes!

Many who do not agree with capital punishment do so from a “religious” perspective. But, in all religions, (Christianity is at the top of the heap) people are historically put to death for adultery, blasphemy, being a witch, Idolatry and yes even not observing the Sabbath.
Still, the public does support the death penalty strongly in certain crimes. Law professor noted during questions after Ellsworth's talk that more people supported the execution of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVey than agree with capital punishment philosophically.Then there are others who don't agree with capital punishment but say Bali Nine members Chan and Sukumaran knew about Indonesia's strict laws when they tried to commit a crime there, so they should face Indonesia's punishment for it. Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, who spent time in France as a missionary, angrily disagreed with Obama's translation of the first sentence in Albert Camus' novel "The Stranger." Romney, speaking to a group of schoolboys with a limited knowledge of French and no understanding of who Albert Camus was, said, "Did Mother die today? The president says she did. How can we know for sure? Besides an autopsy report from the French police and her son as eyewitness, all of which we learn about later in the novel, we have no proof of her death, any more than we do of global warming…. Look … look … the question isn't whether Mother died today. For all we know it could have been yesterday … or maybe she's not dead, maybe she's lost…. Old people get confused sometimes. The word for lost in French is perdu … like the chicken … funny…. The point is that I agree with capital punishment, even for elderly French mothers, and by agree I mean disagree if I have to, depending on the day, the hour or the minute, or whether there's a French person in the room. Any French people here today?"
