More and more countries abolish the Death Penalty. Do you think all States should follow suit? Do you support the Death Penalty?
I have no problem with the death penalty from a moral point of view.
I figer eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth is probably a good rule of thumb.
And I figure from that respect there aren't enough people on death row.
Rapist, child molesters, White collar types who steel peoples life saveings.
Skew em all.
What I do have a problem with is the fallbility of our justice system.
The guilty go free, and yes, the innocent get convicted.
As such, In all good conscious. I cannot bet the life of any person on the reliability of our courts, and legal systom.
Better to put them in jail for life. A wrongly convicted man can be set free.
A wrongly executed man cannot be resurrected.
If the crime is heinous enough, and the perpetrator is a continuing threat to the life of others, yes, I think they should be put down like rabid animals.
What I believe is that whether or not there should be a death penalty is a moral question, and it is in fact very related to the right-to-life question...which is "Is killing correct?" I often hear pro-death penalty advocates being the same individuals who cry about the right-to-life. If the individual is human, has a beating heart at conception and the heart is still beating to this day, I believe the same law that can save a fetus is the same law that should save a criminal because both have a beating human heart. Now...do I *know* the answer yet? No....but I do believe the answer for both must be the same.
kill em all
Why pay to keep them alive. They are useless and a drag on resoucess.
I think any crime that involves murder or crimes against children should be punishible by the death penalty. Why should taxpayers have to support criminals by providing hot meals food and shelter and prolong the suffering of the victims families? An eye for an eye is what I say...
I believe that they should used for lab experimentation rather than using innocent helpless animals. I would even go so far as to say they could have a choice of being used for "lab experiments" or put to death. At least they would have a choice~~animals do not have a choice. I do not believe animals should be used in labs at all~~they were not put on this earth to be tortured and murdered, and they have commited no crime.
no one should take a life, a life for a life is not the answer, i am aganist death penalty no life should be taken ever
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
