  • Ya if u commit murder you give up all rights to u're own life

    It is because you don't have to deal with all these murders and people that will spending their life in prison. Why not just kill them off so you don't have to spend money to have them there? Not only that, but others need a place to be imprisoned and have nowhere to go. This causes more prisons to be built. It makes an area or place look bad when they have 7 prisons when they really could have 3. Crime rates would also go down because you'd have less criminals. Studies say 40% of people that are in prison and come out will end up back in prison. If more of these 40% are getting sentenced to the death penalty, crime rates will go down. This makes the country or area a lot safer place to live. I'm not saying that every single person who breaks the law should be sentenced to death. I'm saying that it would open up space in our prison and would cost the country less money.

  • Yup >>> it is

  • Brings closure to the family.

    Hammarabian philosophies aside, the death penalty allows the family and friends of the victim to receive closure to a violent case. While there can be the case made that the person who committed the crime could be put back into society in a good way, that costs money, time, and isn't even a 100% full-proof way of doing it, unlike the death penalty which is almost 100% effective, and costs a Hell of a lot less than rehabilitation.

  • A state that approves of death penalty is no state of justice

    Death penalty is irreversible, it can't be revoken, it can't be consolidated, and that alone makes it a barbaric thing that should have no place in 21st century law. There has been death penalties given to people that later developments in forensics prove were almost certainly innocent.

    Death penalty is inhumane. It is essentially state-approved murder. The way I see it, it is a group of people (in case of jury) or one person (judge) having the right to take someone's life. In any other context, that would be manslaughter, and that's why no place calling itself just should allow it.

    Death penalty isn't always supported even by the crime victims' families. You know, you should watch the Norway part of Michael Moore's "Where To Invade Next". In it, Moore interviews a man whose son was killed by Neo-nazi mass-murderer Anders Breivik. That man says that he would not want Breivik to be given the death penalty, even if it was legal. Moore is baffled: Anders Breivik killed seventy-seven people, and, Moore says, if any, would be deserving to die. The man goes on to tell Moore that it would not bring back the son he lost, that it'd only be taking away someone else's son and not healing anything. I agree. I do think that some people, like Breivik, should never be allowed to society again, but the right place for them is at prison or at a mental asylum, not in the electric chair. It'd not bring back those lost to kill their killers, it'd not heal nor settle anything, it'd only cause more wounds.

    Death penalty is condemned by the UN and by Amnesty International, and abolished in the EU. It is a human rights question. Furthermore, death penalty is a cruel and unusual punishment, and thusly, is also at odds with the Constitution.

  • No, it is not.

    The death penalty is not good and makes the people who use it just as bad as the person they have sentenced to death. It is basically using the eye for an eye system, and their is a reason we do not use that system on a normal basis. It does not work and contradicts itself.

  • It hasn't decreased crime and shows no proof of closure.

    Death is irreversible, with that being said there have been many people on death row awaiting death have had their verdicts reversed due to a number of reasons. I wonder how many people haven't had that chance of appeal and have died an innocent death. Life without parole could be in a sense worse than death itself (based on your personal beliefs of life after death), and if one was to be found innocent they risk only years of incarceration compared to a permanent solution (Death penalty). If you bring too much emotion into the justice system it can be very dangerous.

  • Here's the big problem with it

    As much as we want a scumbag killer dead, it's not our place to decide whether or not the person dies or not. It's God's decision. If God wants to send the angels of death on the scumbag, then that's God that wants it. It's not our say to kill someone.
