hanging someone is murder. Murder is already illegal. why do we need a special law on the books for a specific type of murder? This is a problem with the legal system. we have too many redundant and obsolete laws. we really need an expiration date on all laws passed so that all laws are required to be reviewed every so often. If the law or bill goes past the expiration date it ends unless it is reviewed in a congressional setting and passed. There should also be a law made that every bill has to be only for what it was meant for. Pork should not be allowed in bills. This is why the US government is broke. We need a government that is run efficiently.
