We should abolish the death penalty in the US

The death penalty does more harm than good in today's society. At one time, it may have served a useful purpose, but it is no longer necessary and the small positives it may have are outweighed by the negatives. The death penalty is not able to be overturned, so any mistake in its application cannot be corrected because we do not have the power to resurrect people. Some propose that capricious application of the death penalty is flawed, but feel that the death penalty needs to be there for tr...

I don't think anyone contests the notion that there is a basic right to live. In order to exercise this right, we must have a right to defend that life, either by incapacitation or fatality. Furthermore, gr...

Should the Death Penalty Exist?

aaronjames.fortson
justin.graves

Should the death penalty be allowed or exist to begin with? In my opinion, I believe it should NOT exist, and should be abolished immediately. Having the worldview that I have, I think the death penalty is murder, and people who say it isn't, and that it is justice for the victims and the hurt, I think are only justifying their own evils. No matter how you look at it, when you have someone's life in your hands, and you intentionally let them die on your own accord, because you wanted them to, it...

Use of the Death Penalty as punishment for capital murder and sex crimes.

Heisenberg13
athenaforce

In the case of capital murder and life destroying sexual crimes, the death penalty should be allowed, as it is a powerful deterrent and, if the criminal takes it upon themselves to take control of the life of another and ruin it/ take it, the state/federal government should reserve the power to do so as well....
