The death penalty is fair. You would have to be a serious offender such as a murderer to be given the death sentence. It is only fair because apparently the people that get the death sentence do not care anything about another human life. I think the death sentence is fair and the threat of being sentenced to it stops crimes.
Yes, I believe the death penalty is fair. If a person is a danger to society they should be put to death. I even believe that the death penalty should be extended to people who do thinks like serial rapists, or serial child molesters. These people need to be taken off of the street to protect our women and children.
If you are going to commit a crime that is bad enough to lead you to the death penalty, you do deserve to die. Most people on death row have committed murders, and if you took someone elses life, your life should be taken as well as you do not deserve to live.
If a trial is handled correctly and all appeals are exhausted, then the death penalty is absolutely fair. Otherwise, death row inmates exhaust state and federal resources while harming each other in various ways. This population should be reduced to decrease state costs and get rid of people that have committed heinous crimes.
When a judge and jury decide on the death penalty, it is fair. If the person being executed thinks its unfair, he should have thought of that before be committed the heinous crime that got him in trouble in the first place. It's necessary for the worst criminals to receive the worst punishments.
I don't think taking the life of anyone is technically fair. Taking away someone's life will never make up for the crime. However, there are theories that it helps keep people from committing violent crimes (which is difficult to prove), and also that it can bring some level of closure to the family that was victimized. So while it may be something that we accept, that doesn't necessarily mean that it's fair.
I honestly do believe that the death penalty does have it's time and place, but with the several cases that have been overturned by DNA evidence for inmates that were on death row, it does seem unfair. Putting horrible people to death is one thing, but when we are executing innocents, it's a problem.
The government has no big control because we have a democracy so the citizens control and picks a president
If you did something very bad do you think you deserve to go to jail you would be mad and you would not want to die you would rather stay in jail for life
