  • Death penalty is a must

    Definitely death penalty will deter people from committing crimes like RAPE. They are sure to be caught and even in their wildest thought they will not touch a woman because of the fear. Debating the topic is mere waste of time. It has to be implemented and Rapists should be hanged in public in full view in front of his kith and kin, then I am sure this will never take place. Take for eg. Iran/Iraq we can never hear about Rape. By default if a person commits such a heinous crime, he is beheaded in public. Unless Death Penalty is taken up on a Fast Track judgement, psychopaths will keep raping young girls and will be moving freely around the cities and enjoying life.

  • Eye for eye punishments deter crime.

    Many people are now committing crimes just to get back into jail for 3 squares and a warm bed, but if punishments were “eye for an eye”, people would think twice. For instance, if you assaulted someone, then could receive a caning. If you stole something, you lose your hand. If murder someone, you are killed. If these eye for an eye punishments were common knowledge, it would definitely deter crime. Would it deter the people that are essentially committing suicide by cop already, probably not. Some people are so ill and confused that no punishment system will deter them. But, would deter any sane person.

  • Dead criminals break no laws.

    While an Ünderland policy of death for all law violations would be terrible, rapists and murderers would never be repeat offenders if they were caught. Yes, there would still be rapes and murders, but death is a 99 percent airtight deterrent to repeat offenders, the only exceptions being in horror movies.

  • Punishments aren't enough.

    A person who kills another person isn't frightened by a jail. It knows that in a couple of years it will be free. So it thinks that it can kill or commit another crime without problem. But if this person knows it will die, I think it will think about doing a crime or not twice before choosing yes.

  • It eliminates the hardcore bad guys

    In my opinion, if a rapist assaults a girl till she dies, isn't there a probability he would assault another girl (a minor even) till the same fate of previous conquests meet the victim. There is every tendency that he would strike again & in a worse manner. Same thing goes for murderers. So if the death penalty is put in place and actually carried out, we would be doing justice by removing the weed from the garden.

  • I jus want to make it 50:50

    If it is a 50 to 50 arguement and or ratio then this topic of capital punishment will be even more contriversial and i know i splet that wrong but thats okay becasue englosh is not my frist language, well techinacally it is but you know it is not at the same time

  • Same thing here

  • Death to the criminals

    Reasons I personally think that the death penalty is good thing is because if we go back and look at the past every crime was punishable by death. If you were caught stealing or killing your were most likely going to be hung by the neck till death. To all those who thing all criminals can change their ways. I recommend the three strike rule and after the third strike death. It will not only decrease crime but it will also save america money. Instead of paying to keep those criminals alive in prison, we could just shot them which is quick and pretty much painless.

  • Crime will be committed anyway

    The death penalty has been around for hundreds of years in various forms in all countries. Crime will be committed and the death penalty will not stop this. There have been no studies that have shown that the death penalty categorically deters crime. In regard to murder, most murders are committed under the influence of drugs/alcohol and done in fits of passion or rage. The offender will have little time to think of the consequences

  • We still won't be safe! You're a criminal too!

    Putting someone on a death row for crimes that's does not deserved death is wrong! The criminal probably killed someone and his punishment is death but I believe that is not a punishment because you doing what he did. You doing something cruel! Providing a death penalty does not protects us from the acts of dangerous criminals.

  • Death Penalty is Anti- Poor

    Capital punishment, as applied in the Philippines before, was a great extent against poor. Poor detainees will probably be condemned to death than rich prisoners. In 2004 the Free Legal Assistance Group (FLAG) did an overview of 890 death row detainees. FLAG found that 79% of death row detainees did not achieve school and 63% were already utilized in industrial work like agribusiness, transport, and construction. Most obviously, 66% of death row detainees had a monthly wage which is below the minimum wage of ₱7,000. One reason for this difference is that rich prisoners have significantly more assets to forcefully guard themselves in court like having a good legal counselors. This imbalance will just keep on being a vehicle for selective justice. (Rappler)

  • Ok, I get we need people to stop committing crimes but the death penalty isn't going to stop it.

    You can't teach that killing is bad by killing. The death penalty is irreversible. What I would like to know is, if an innocent person was sentence to death and later on evidence surfaced proving the person innocent, there is no way to undo the effect. The person is already dead. Unlike if a person was sentenced to prison, if new evidence is found proving the accused innocent, they will just be let out of prison.

  • Death Penalty is irreversible.

    If an innocent person was sentence to death, and later on evidence surfaced proving him/her innocent, there is no way to undo the effect. The person is already dead. The damage is permanent. Unlike if a person was sentenced to prison, if new evidence is found proving the accused innocent, he/she will just be let out of prison.

  • No It Does Not

    Lets get this straight it does not deters crimes, according to the N.C. Department of Justice, the state murder rate has declined in the years since executions stopped. Given this fact, there is no credible argument that the death penalty deters crime. It is far to dangerous for many lives as the criminal justice system is getting worse, a few less than 70 people have been realized from capital punishment as the were found innocent. Since 1970 1.6 people have been exoneration while 4.1 is the innocent rate and this is what most people assumed but did not want to hear.

  • Capital punishment is inhumane

    The death penalty belongs to the medieval ages. It does not consider the rights of the suspect/guilty and it is a gross spectacle to see. No one wants to see someone get electrocuted, beheaded or hanged. And the "humane" injections that are being used today are only for the families who want revenge. It is also proven it does not reduce crime. Using countries such Iraq and Iran as examples of why the death penalty is a must is the worst of examples as you just brush aside all the other negatives about their countries, such as their treatment of women and foreigners.

  • Is teaches them nothing

    If a person is found guilty of a capital crime and is sentenced to death then what will they learn from it? Nothing thing because they are dead. They cannot learn from their mistakes if they are dead. What is the purpose of sentencing someone to death if you expect them to learn from their mistakes? Most people learn from their punishments and taught not to do the same mistake again.
