  • 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.

    Fear is a deterrent.
    People fear death.
    Therefore, The death penalty is a deterrent.

  • 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 like death

    Death is a good thing bailey-2k18 i am outraged that i needed 44 more words to complete this paragraph but that is ok because i am nearly done and i only need 18 more word thank you for listening to me and my awesomeness and good bye silly people haha

  • 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.

  • Capital punishment does not deter crime

    Capital punishment and death penalty both are equally immoral to me but if i have to choose one i will surely choose the death penalty because it kills the person at once rather than capital punishment kills the person slowly it kills the person before he dies after few years the person behave like a dead person and even become mentally disturbed

  • Execution turns innocents to killers

    Even the most automated systems for execution, a human hand is still needed. Someone has to pull the switch. Someone has to push the button and someone has to swing the ax. That someone is going to have to spend the rest of their life with the knowledge that they killed another human being, which might be just as terrible as being put to death yourself.

  • It doesn't deter criminals

    Capital punishment is such a costly, controversial and irreversible issue that unless it succeeds in saving lives, it clearly shouldn't be brought back to Australia. 101 countries have abolished execution. Does the death penalty really save lives? Its easy to take the phrase "put to death by the state" literally-like, the whole state just suddenly appears in a physical form and obliterates the guilty

  • 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.
