I think that if they already took another's life for some stupid reason, then they should be knocked off immediately. Let 'em suffer! No one has a right to take someone's life away from them, but if you do it anyway, you deserve equal punishment.


Then we are just as bad as the murderers. The death penalty should be banned. It is against human rights. No, I don't have some amazing alternate way of dealing with criminals, but killing them is wrong. Simple as.

I am completely unagainst it. I study psychology and research shows that the Death Penalty should not actually be given as a sentence, not only is it far more costly and does not actually end overcrowding in prisons, but judges who give the sentence of the Death Pentalty are more likely to give it based on your race.
It's completely subjective to the Judge and the country.
Not to mention it is incredibly barbaric. We're humans after all. We should think logically. If you take a murderer to an electric chair, or to the lethal injection, that's a life you've ended right there.
Sure, he took a life. But so have you now. And even though you will say 'An eye for an eye', you still took the life of that man. And it will forever be seen that way.

I'd be for it if there was a night 100% certainty of it being the right person. Who qualifies for the death penalty depends, though.

The way I see it, jail should be for reforming people, not a punishment. Punishment is ineffective and only begets more crime as well as an inherent distrust of the system. Those who can't be reformed - repeat offenders, etc. - and/or who are a serious detriment to society, are the ones to be slated for the death sentence.

I used to be completely for the death penalty to a point where I'd even accept the job giving the lethal injections, but I took a social psych class that revealed just how easy it is for truly innocent people to be convicted for crimes they've never committed. Now I'm only for it if there's 99.999% certainty that the individual is the one who committed the crime, and isn't on death row just because of a faulty witness testimony, or a forced confession, both of which do still happen apparently.

I'm for it. But honestly, if they've done sonething bad enough to be killed, make it hurt them. And put them in a lie detector first. Besides, wouldn't cost less to just blow off their heads with a rifle rather then the LI?

1. If we "make them hurt", we're hardly any better than they, are we?
2. Lie detectors aren't very reliable - not the sort of things we want to depend on if we're going to be sending a person to their death.
3. Perhaps, but it makes more of a mess, and hardly looks good (publicity, public image, etc.)

I think the death penalty is like taking the easy way out. If they are a true endangerment to others, then I can see why they would go with that, but not everyone who is given the death penalty is a true hazard. Some crimes automatically get the death penalty (at least where I live...) and I think that isn't right. I say that they should keep someone under close supervision to determine whether or not the death penalty is absolutely necessary.

Life Sentence. Why? The answer is simple: doing Lethal Injection will make you same as that person, you also killed someone, so why shouldn't you be sentenced for death... It's like closed circle. Plus, if person has life sentence, he/she has time to think about what was done...

Totally, totally against death sentence. This is coming from someone who lives in a place where the electric chair is also acceptable. It's barbaric, disgusting, and completely and utterly against what I believe is a natural human right. It's amazing that anyone can honestly think that sentencing a person to their death is ever okay. Yes, murderers are bad, but murdering murderers are just as bad, ya dig?

That, and the fact that I honestly believe we as people are automatially prone to gamble other people's lives because they are simply not us. You can't possibly be cold-blooded enough to think that killing ever solves anything? Maybe it's because I'm entirely pacifist and it's just my thing to protect murderers from LI or the chair, but...

While those prisoners are in jail for their life sentence, we practically pay for whatever they do. There were some cases that criminals use the money that we (as in government) give them to go back on trail to get off their life sentence spot free.

Some jail facilities have state of the art tennis courts. When I ponder about this, how can jails be treating their prisoners with such luxuries when there are thousands of schools that are lacking the funds they need for books, windows, heating and cooling system, and/or whatever else.

I would support the death penalty. And going back to the cruel and unusual punishment, if you haven't we live in an unusual world with many things are considered cruel and unfair. It's cruel that little children and teenagers are raped. It's unusual to see your someone you know at a vacation resort. It's cruel that thousands are going to bed starving.

The sponge is dry!

^Schools are pretty much the same as prisons, really. Only you get to leave at the end of the day.

Considering the world is overpopulated, death sentence is fine with me. Maybe sometimes someone innocent gets killed, but how often compared to the actual criminals?

I think that, if ther is enough proof that the person is a criminal, that death sentence should actually be used more.
Ther is literally less than no use in keeping a person locked up for life, unless the gov. allows us to test our new products on criminals, but you know that may never happen.
all they're doing is sittingaround wasting our money basically.
I mean, your taking their life anyway, why even bother keeping them alive and eating up all our food and money? Especially the ones who have no family to visit them, theres literally no point in having them live. If its guarenteed that they are that serious of a criminal, whats the point in the life sentance? it does nothing but waste all our money...
