Michael Addison, 28, has been sentenced to die by injection for shooting a police officer. "The last time a New Hampshire court imposed a death sentence was in 1959, but the two condemned men were spared by a 1972 U.S. Supreme Court ruling. New Hampshire last executed someone in 1939, has no one on death row and has no death chamber." What are your feelings on the death penalty? http://www.ajc.com/news/content/shared-gen/ap/National/New_Hampshire_Death_Penalty.html

It holds hands with Roe v. Wade, we live in a society of laws, if you break those laws you are to be punished according to your crime. I don't think killing anybody is right but there are people who need to be made examples of, sad to say but the deterant is just what it is, hope they don't do it again or hope it never happens again. I hope he's made his peace with God.

I think it is terrible but then again, if you take a persons life, then yours should also be taken. It is an eye for an eye.
