||A wonderful thing. All countries are required by God to maintain laws & regulations, punishments and general order. This has been the Law determined in the U.S. and that is fulfilling a basic requirement.
Now, can it be done without the death penalty? Maybe? Right now our society is not safe enough and morals are at an all time low. I would be more comfortable with swifter and severe punishment toward violent heinous crimes, and a little more breathing room on those parking tickets.
