The death penalty falls within a civilized society's definition of cruel and unusual. It is cruel to put a person to death if there is any chance the criminal is actually innocent and there have been some extraordinary cases in which a person was found innocent after their execution despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. If the person truly is guilty then they should be forced to be kept alive and live with what they have done.
The death penalty doesn't bring anyone's loved ones back after heinous murders. If the wrong person is convicted of the crime, which has happened before, then the wrong person is put to death for a crime he or she didn't commit. The death penalty is cruel in that no one gets justice because no one learns the valuable lesson of forgiveness under the harshest of circumstances.
In my opinion, it depends on the definition of cruel. If you mean by physical pain, then I wouldn't know. I have never been sentenced to death. Morally, I believe that any form of capital punishment is cruel, whether it is by injection, electric chair, firing squad or by hanging, etc.

Yes i hate death penalty so much because it is too expensive to sentence people to death and lock them up and execute them and it is a cruel and unusual punishment for any crime including murder and treason and war crimes and genocide and crimes against humanity and if they are executed they are dead and it is considered murder and they need justice and rehabilitation and jail time whether they are insane or not. And it violates human rights.
Cruel yes, but necessary Yes the death penalty is always cruel. It is putting another individual to death for crimes they committed. However as cruel as it may be it is still necessary. Not all criminals should get the death penalty but there are cases where the death penalty makes the most sense for justice.
If someone is put to death it doesn't just effect them. Their family has to go through life knowing that their family member was killed. What if the accused has a young child? That child is being punished for nothing. It is still murder if you sentence a person to death. It is not equal. Two wrongs doesn't fix a situation.

They have commuted terrible crimes and they didn't think about the fact that what they were doing was extremely cruel. Rapists peedophiles murderers and terrorists destroy a lot of lives and they only way that they can be properly punished is if they are killed. It is not cruel .
The death penalty is not always cruel and unjust. I believe that the death penalty has a place in society for getting rid of folks who have so violated what it means to be human that they are completely irredeemable: such as serial killers, rapists, and pedophiles. I believe in situational death penalties.
This is a question that will most likely always be dated. That being said, I do not think the death penalty is ALWAYS cruel. To me, more often then not, if someone is put to death, they definitely deserved it and it was only fitting for them to be put to death.
The death penalty is not always cruel. Some times, the person who is having the death penalty happen to them has committed more evil than any one person could imagine. They might have killed 100 people, which is a lot. One hundred people is a whole lot more than one person, so the death penalty is not cruel for one person to die for 100.
