Depends on the crime. If it deserved execution then so be it. But life in prison wouldn't be too bad.

I wonder where you got the idea for this question...
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/5/04 - 1:09:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's coincidence, I tell you!
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/5/04 - 1:12:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
It would depend on the prison. I could meditate in prison, if i wasn't being raped by my fellow inmates. But i'm not sure i could really stand being trapped in their all my life. That lethal injection bed would start to look pretty good...

Life in prison.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/5/04 - 1:47:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Executed, because I want to die as it is...even though I am anti-death penalty.

Depends on what Prison I'm sent to.If I'm sent to a Camp,No.If I'm sent to Medium secuirity and above,Excuted.

Seeing how I don't believe in an afterlife, I say life in prison.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/5/04 - 5:35:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
What's the point of living if you're just gonna be in prison your whole life?
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/5/04 - 6:43:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know what I'd choose..

That's a very tough question, but being an optimist, I'd *probably* choose prison.. I don't know if I beleiev in an after-life or not.. But I wouldn't want to take my chances that way..

In prison you may have a chance to rebuild your life in some way so that might be better

"What's the point of living if you're just gonna be in prison your whole life?"

Life is the most precious thing you have. And being in prison doesn't mean you are trapped and can't do anything for the rest of your life. There are even places that have computers, TVs, etc in the jail cells. You would have plenty of time to do things like read, maybe write a book, and even make a difference in the world. What can you do if you're dead?

"I don't know if I beleiev in an after-life or not"

Things like this confuse me sometimes. I can't understand why people don't even try to make such an important decision as this one. When people don't know what they believe in, that's when I start to worry about society.

Prison. Some have more luxuries than I do.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 7/5/04 - 11:00:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Executed. Anyone who thinks that they would be better off in prison would be foolish. That kinda game just isn't my dish.

I'd escape.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 9/1/04 - 1:29:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
i'd wanna go to prison, if it was really that bad, im sure i would find a way to kill myself, but i'd wanna give it a chance first...maybe even find a way out.
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 9/1/04 - 2:54:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
raisin brings up a good point.....if prison turns out to be hell, just trade it in for the real thing, or i'm sure another inmate would be more than happy to help
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 9/7/04 - 4:13:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
Execution.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 9/7/04 - 4:14:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
Oh man - kill me please - I would probably kill myself by day 2.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 9/7/04 - 4:19:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
It would be heavenly if I could spend all that time in prison in a private cell. I would have all the time in the world to read, stare, think, and do nothing.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 9/7/04 - 5:42:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather be executed. I wouldn't want to live my life like a big loser in prison getting into fights and eating slimy food and having terrible indigestion all the time
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 9/24/04 - 7:40:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Life in prison, though if I were executed, I could laugh at them for swabbing my arm before giving me the injection.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 10/1/04 - 7:16:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Kyry, that's an impossible choice! I don't know.
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 10/6/04 - 8:07:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
if i was guilty, id want to be executed
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 10/13/04 - 3:40:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
i would try prison, but i would most likely kill myself, as raisinman said.
