Do you agree with the Death Penalty?

Connecticut Seal

General Assembly
  Proposed Bill No. 5166
January Session, 2013
  LCO No. 306
Referred to Committee on JUDICIARY
Introduced by:
REP. SAMPSON, 80th Dist.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Assembly convened:
That chapter 952 of the general statutes be amended to restore the crime of capital felony, punishable by death, for any person convicted under the provisions of section 53a-54b of the general statutes for a murder committed on or after the effective date of this act.
Statement of Purpose:
To restore the death penalty in Connecticut. 

Note: This bill seemed to die quietly in the state legislation, but do readers out there feel that Connecticut should return to the usage of  Capital Punishment?

  1. I don't think Connecticut should have gotten rid of it in the first place. If anything I think it should have been stricter and quicker to enforce the penalty of death
