When An Eye For An Eye Is Not Enough

With the amount of killing going on in the name of murder/terrorism prevention (e.g. Tookie or 30K plus KIA Iraqis), I am wondering what would be an appropriate punishment for individuals who execute people only to find out later that they killed the wrong (or worse yet, an innocent) person? There has to be something worse than the good Christian value of an "eye for an eye," that would fit the crime, no?

Any suggestions?

Besides founding the Crips.
Murdering 4 People.
One poor girl shotguned in the face.
Ever see what a persons face looks like from a 12 gage?

His Books were dedicated to radical groups and cop killers.

This is NOT redemption.
Now Saddam knows the ticket for an easy out.
Write Childrens books!

Lethal Injection was not Justice.
They should make the bastards suffer a death not unlike their victims.
The Electric Chair should be used again.

Classic Liberalism, blaming others!

That, and missing the point entirely.


Iggy Dude, the question was ...
an appropriate punishment for individuals who execute people only to find out later that they killed the wrong (or worse yet, an innocent) person.

What's more fun than a self-demonstrating example?

No question, if he was guilty.

Sorry, if I jumped the gun.
I say death, if there is no doubt. 100%

If not, it is just not worth it.
3 Million in fees to kill them.
Less than 2 Million to keep them for life.

me...
I would much rather be put to death than spend life in prison.
