Yes their are people in the world who exit that are sexually assaulting people, and or murdering with out a care in the world, and they deserve death, but if that person is a mentally impaired person who can change, shouldn't they be allowed the chance to change and be fixed. Many have gone through a mentally traumatizing moment, or are mentally impaired and do not fully know what they are doing, and can not fully control their actions, and even not fully understand what their actions are to begin with. Over the course of this argument I will bring up multiple court cases in which a mentally impaired person has committed an act of the most heinous standards and is either punished accordingly, or given an unfair punishment.
I am for the death penalty because rapists, murders, and wife beaters should be put to death and yet our governments give them a chance when they shouldn't. It doesn't matter if there are mental issues or not. It's still a crime.
Thanks for your opinion in this matter, yet due to the fact that the law says simply, the death penalty is to only be given to those who know what they are doing, know that it is wrong and can't be helped. But you would have me believe that if your grandma came in to your room and molested you, then you later find out that she has a mental condition called alzheimer's
and you want her given the death penalty then you tell that you arn't feeling, even in the slightest, morally wrong. Then you and Hitler should meet up in hell.
A mental disorder does in fact excuse a crime, because they are not fully in control of their actions and can not reasonably make decisions on their own. Just as an f.y.i 50% of all mentally ill people are diagnosed, or even treated if diagnosed in the u.s alone.
The 50% that are diagnosed (just as a BTW it is diagnosed, not diongnized, that's not even a word you degenerate), half of them are treated which means the other half of the total half are being neglected. And it doesn't give them a reason to commit a crime, but they do it, without any control and without any conscious and or self moral to control them. So to say exactly what you just said, is a silly, illiterate statement. And on top of that has NOTHING to back it up.
Your opinion has no say in this, a mentally ill person will be sent to an asylum, where they can receive help and care, regardless of their wrong doings. they would never be given the death penalty unless they where 100% aware of what they were doing. And do to your argument of its still a crime regardless, your right it is a crime, and their punishment is to be sent to an asylum, the death penalty is too extreme and, it is not worth the hundreds of dollars spent to kill them. Mind you yes it costs more to keep mentally impaired people alive, the reason to do it out weighs the costs of money, the reason being moral value, to take a life is wrong, so I guess it could be said that your committing a crime by allowing the death penalty to be done.
