I disagree with the death penalty because I think nobody deserves to die . Even if they commited a murder , they shouldn't deserve to die . I think they should be punished in a non-dealthy way. Maybe stay in jail longer ? But sometimes people go to jail when they aren't guilty , and they could die for no reason . Killing people is really sad . They go when GOD wants them , too . They shouldn't know the date and time they're going to be killed , no matter what or how bad their crime was.

I understand killing people isn't right at all , but that still don't mean the killer should . Let God deal with that . What would it accomplish to put someone on death row ? The victim is already dead-you cannot bring him back . When the opponents feel "fear of death" will prevent one from committing murder , it is not true because most murders are done on the "heat of passion" when a person cannot think rationally . If the criminal was someone that was colse to me , of course I'd want them to be punished for what they did , but I wouldn't want them gone forever . Death penalty doesn't solve anything , it just get's rid of them . But are they really gonna kill people in jail ? I don't think so . Just think WWJD ? I'm positive he wouldn't kill anyone . & if he was down here right now , i'm pretty sure he would get rid of the deathe penalty .
