  • Yes I support the use of capital punishment in accordance with reform on how is administered.

    I support the legal concept of capital punishment, as being punishment defined by law and imposed without bias. I'm in favor of capital punishment as a cost-effective alternative was to address crime. However the decision of who get the death penalty should not be left to the judgment of a single person (the district attorney) but should be defined by statue law. In other words if you are charged with a capital crime (such as first degree murder) you face the death penalty.

  • Yes, I am in favor of capital punishment.

    Yes, I am in favor of capital punishment and think that criminals who kill someone, or commit other bad crimes such as rape, are eligible to be executed through capital punishment. I think that people who take someone's life deserve to be put to death since that person cannot come back to life from the grave.

  • Strongly Support Capital Punishment

    There are crimes for which the only fitting punishment is death. Serial killers, spree killers, those who murder in a home invasion and those who rape children should all be sentenced to death. Further, the upbringing of people who commit those crimes, no matter how tragic they may be, should not be a mitigating factor.

  • It is the Ultimate Warning

    If would-be criminals know that they will be put to death should they murder with premeditation, very many of them are much less inclined to commit murder.

    In a larger sense, capital punishment is the ultimate warning against all crimes. If the criminal knows that the justice system will not stop at putting him to death, then the system appears more draconian to him. Hence, he is less inclined to break and enter. He may have no intention of killing anyone in the process of robbing them, but is much more apprehensive about the possibility if he knows he will be executed. Thus, there is a better chance that he will not break and enter in the first place.

  • No, I am not.

    I believe no one should ever take another's life. Just because that person decided to do something wrong and immoral does not mean we should mimic that action and do the same things. No matter the reason or how you look at it, killing someone is always wrong. Even if they think it's to help others.

  • Not in favor of Death Penalty.

    We have no right to kill. Only God has the right to judge His men because He is our creator. Killing them won't bring back a murdered person's life, a rape victim's virginity, or make the criminal and our society at large better people. It's seen as a Band-Aid solution to a lot of problems, and is seen as something opposite the Commission of Human Rights.

  • No Capital Punishment is wrong.

    Capital punishment has been taken out of the context of the bible. The bible recommends it for over thirty other crimes which include some that even you and I are guilty of; which are including but not limited to idolatry, blasphemy, work on the Sabbath, being disloyal to a parent, or even adultery. So who are we to say which sin is greater than another one; in fact the bible says in James 2:10 "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one [point], he is guilty of all." Therefore we should all be put to death. James 4:12 says, " There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?" Proving that we have no right to judge someone or put them to death because they did wrong. It's not our place but it's Gods!

  • Capital punishment is not needed

    There are other ways to punish someone of their crimes many being more moral than the death penalty. Taking someone's life is wrong no matter their crime. People who do wrong do deserve to be punished but in a more moral way like maybe a life sentence no one should have their life taken from them they have rights too no matter how immoral their actions

  • Not at all.

    Logically - It is more expensive.

    The death penalty costs more because of pre-trial formalities including attorney fees, expert opinions, mitigation, extensive genetic testing, autopsy and overtime for everyone involved in the process. It drains the government's resources at the cost our, the taxpayer's, money (Death penalties cost approximately $90,000 more per year than regular sentences).

    Morally - It is a crime against humanity.

    Killing someone because they committed a crime is not justice, it's murder. We are teaching our kids that an eye for an eye is justice. Also, killing them is basically setting them free and giving them the easy way out. Let them rot in prison without parole for the rest of their lives and work them to death.

  • Declarations say NO!

    "Natural and legal rights are two types of rights. Legal rights are those bestowed onto a person by a given legal system. Natural rights are those not contingent upon the laws, customs, or beliefs of any particular culture or government, and therefore universal and inalienable (i.E., cannot be sold, transferred, or removed)." -Wikipedia

    As stated by Wikipedia natural rights are universal to all human beings despite culture, customs or beliefs. The crime of capital punishment, is that it violates several articles of the declaration of universal human rights. First it ignores Article 3: "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person." By denying the defendent the right to life. Next it violates Article 5: "No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment." Clearly capital punishment is Inhuman and by subjecting a person to forcible death, the cruelty is blatantly apparent.
    In conclusion capital punishment should not be justified . It is not only invalidated in the declaration of universal human rights but our own declaration as well. The discrimination of criminals is evident when capital punishment is used.

  • Don't let the criminals not do the time for their crime.

    Capital punishment shouldn't be allowed in any sercumstanc. The criminals should have to go to jail for their crime. Killing them off is kind of like another way of them getting away with it. They should be spending their time in jail where they will take the time to know what they did. Also, a lot of criminals expect to be killed because of the crimes that they have committed. Don't let them think that they can "get away with it" and just put them into a jail cell.

  • No, I am against Capital punishment.

    I do not believe that capital punishment is a good thing. I feel it is too strong. If someone steals a piece of food, you think its right to remove their hand? What if that was a starving child? Capital punishment is cruel and unusual. I think we need to keep capital punishment out of any and every country.
