  • Yes, most definitely

    It is more just than prison, because if its a pedo-murderer, then he will brutually harmed in prison, tortured, and then killed. The death penalty would be quick and painless, so they would be spared the torture of prison (even though they do deserve it). Also if they were a drug dealer, or something small, they could drop the soap, and they would kill themselves anyway.

  • Not more just

    Death is never more just then life. Even in prison a person is still alive anything could happen, their sentence could be changed. Once you die that is it you are dead. There is no coming back or changing. Being sentenced to death is way more harsh than getting life.

  • Depends on the seriousness.

    I think whether or not the better option of life in prison or the death penalty comes to just how horrid of a crime that the person has committed. Sometimes it may be better to have them suffer for 30-50 years in prison as opposed to just simply killing them.

  • No it is not.

    The death penalty is not a more just sentence than life in prison. The death penalty is cruel and unusual punishment and it should be banned. Even if, we as a society, sentence only one innocent person to the death penalty it undoes any justice that has ever been gained.

  • The death penalty is not a more just sentence than life in prison

    The death penalty is not a more just sentence than life in prison. This is because of the fact that very people truly deserve to die because of their crimes. Also many convictions are proved incorrect. If the person is dead, this can never be fixed. Life in prison is usually more just.

  • It depends, really.

    In some cases a crime can be so vile that the criminal should be put to death after their trial and in other cases life in prison may be a better punishment. A life in prison is still a life, a death penalty ends everything. So it depends on the crime.

  • Death Penalty Not More Just than Life in Prison

    No, the death penalty is not more just than a sentence of life in prison because the death penalty robs an individual of the right to life. No matter what heinous crimes a person has committed, s/he is still a person and therefore still entitled to a right to life. Life in prison at least gives them this while still providing punishment.
