  • I cannot answer that it should be. I am of the opinion that there is a case for state sanctioned execution. If the execution is carried out by the state, it fulfils the need for justice by the family (which is rarely experienced with life sentences), and also gives finality, with no hope of repriece. It is impartial; the sentence is administered by the court on behalf of the people as a whole. It is coldly and dispassionately done, not in the heat of passion like a retributive killing, and it is one for one, without the danger of anyone else being hurt (unlike a vendetta). Lastly, it is cost effective to the state, being much less than keeping a prisoner all his/her life in prison, and it negates the possibility of escape. That being my case, state execution ought only be carried out in the most serious of cases, where there is no doubt as to the guilt of the person, and after all reasonable avenues of appeal have been pursued.
  • If you can't think of any reasons, perhaps you have no business suggesting it should be.
  • There are many reasons why I think death penalty should be illegal (and is illegal in many countries for good reasons). I am dead set against execution because I think that civil liberty is an important concept and that death penalty is barbarous and cruel. Capital punishment might be legal but it’s immoral, unnecessary and glorifies violence and murder- and isn’t it illogical to reply to violence with violence to ‘teach/show’ how wrong it is. Besides, with much racism still in the world, and such a ridiculous big gap between the very rich and the very poor, one may assume that different sets of rules will come into practice. So how fair and equal would this system be? It’s tragic that a nation is so inadequate at dealing with crimes and security issues that it has to resort to capital punishment- the most primitive and barbaric ‘solution’ anyone could think of. I hope this helps you and points for your question.
  • Thats a hard one to debate. I'm sure a lot of people would argue based on religious factors. I'm not going to do your shool work for you so look into religions that oppose it. It comes down to ethics. Another argument could be the actual accuracy of the justice system. and on top of that oten time when someone gets the death penalty they are on death row for years and years. Some die before even being killed. So financial does it really make a difference. It's a hard debate.... good luck
  • Yeah people are right. Ain't nobody gonna do your shit for you. Stop being lazy and look it up. With shit like this, you ain't gonna ge no where in life.
  • I think the death penalty should be illegal because an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. Killing someone is never the right course.
  • No, why kill to show that killing is wrong?
  • It was abolished here in the UK in the 60's. And rightly so! I would prefer locking these people up for life. Real life! They don't get out until they come out in a box. There's always the risk that the person being executed is REALLY innocent. One thing we can't do, is bring them back. There's many a case where someones been put to death, and it turns out later on, they were innocent! There are some crimes which churn my stomach, but I have to look at them objectively. Just NEVER let the bastards out.
  • No. I believe in an eye for an eye.
  • We kill those that kill others to say killing is wrong and won't be tolerated. So what we are saying is two wrongs makes it right. That just doesn't make sense to me. I say it should be illegal.
  • I think that the death penalty should be illegal because its not punishment for the convicted. it's the easy option out because they dont have to live every day being reminded of what crime they have committed.
  • Capital punishment is needed and should be used more often, because then it would become more of a deterrent. Those who have committed offenses worthy of the death penalty cannot be released into society because it is just a matter of time before they do it again. A vast majority of them have zero remorse for what they have done and and could care less about the families and friends of their victims who will always grieve the loss of their loved ones. It brings closure of sorts to those who are affected by these murders, knowing that the person who killed their loved one has had their life taken away. Most death penalty cases aren't even "run of the mill" murders, there is some aggravating factor that lead the prosecution to seek the death penalty, such as the cruelty of the manner of killing, and those who murder helpless victims such as children. I also feel that capital punishment should be extended to nearly all intentional murders, violent rapes, and child molestation, these are some of the more horrible things that people do to one another, and should be punishable by death. Too much consideration is given to the rights of the offender, and nearly none to the victim who many times died begging for their life.
  • I believe that anyone who admits to or is guilty beyond any reasonable doubt of a henious crime involving INNOCENT people should be put to death immediatly. Frankly, I'm getting tired of hearing the horrific crimes that are being commited recently. Time to take the trash out! It is hard enough to feed good starving people anymore let alone a person who just raped and murdered an innocent child. Sorry folks but if you kill, rape, and decide to walk that evil road I dont want to pay for your meals and a one way ticket to hell is all you deserve!
  • Nope and it really wasting money to keep them in prison.
  • It is tough to say you're sorry to the executed innocent corpse
  • DUDE!!!!! IT SHOULD BE LEGAL!!!!! OVERALL THE OFFENDER DESERVES TO DIE FOR WHAT THEY HAVE DONE!!!!! WHY SHOULD THEY DESERVE TO LIVE IF THEY HAVE KILLED LIKE 20 OTHER PEOPLE OR RAPED AND TOTALLY SCARRED EVERYONE!!!!! LIKE DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • 9-30-2017 [Luke 4:5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.] "Delivered unto me," get it? Satan is the god of earthly authority. Governmental punishments have no connection with justice, they are strictly a demonstration of government's power over the individual.
