    Public executions would bring back law and order, and save the government a lot of money.

    Our laws need to protect children. Put it to a vote. I’ll vote for hanging. Child abuse will come to a halt with these pedophiles . Children get the worst sentence, Their lives are ruined by this!

    People watch your children and do NOT entrust them to estranged family members.

    I would come for this hanging.
    I am so tired of reading and hearing about these sicko’s.
    I have 16 grandchildren and I don’t think your tax dollars would be spent on a trail of jail services if it was one of mine.
