Should Canada use capital punishment (the death penalty) against first-degree murderers?

  • Only for US citizens who submitted crime

    Canada is one of the countries with lowest crime rate in the world. And most crimes are submitted by US citizens. Canada must do something about it in order to lower the crime rate. I need extra sixteen words to post this comment, seven now, and these are last words.

  • Canada should use capital punishment against first-degree murderers.

    It is important for murderers to be punished to the full extent of the law. Although Canada is generally a liberal country, they should use the death penalty to punish the worst offenders, including murderers. In this way, the government can deter criminals from committing such terrible acts in the future.

    I think that Canada should use capital punishment (the death
    penalty) against first-degree murderers.
    I think that every single country on the face of the earth should use
    the death penalty against first degree murderers. Pain is the only thing that animals
    respect. The more you kill, the less you
    have to worry about.


  • Yes they should

    It's eye for an eye. Canada may be a good loving country, but what about the people who rape and murder the young children there? They should really use the death penalty because if the people who raped and murder the other citizens just go to jail then get out, they could go back to doing the same thing.

  • Absolutely not, no.

    Death penalty is barbarian and should be abolished. It drags us down to the criminals level to kill them. We're punishing because he's not allowed to kill people and then we kill him ourselves? We have absolutely no right to take another person's life, no matter what that person did. For punishment, condemn them to a life in the cell. That's gotta be hell, so I think it's punishment enough.

  • It is should be the choice of the people

    In my opinion, anyone anywhere that commits murder in the first degree should themselves be subject to death, that is after they have a good stint in prison with hard labor. Canada have different standards and it is not our place to say what they should and should not do, but whatever they are doing must be working because they are not constantly on international news with a large amounts of crime.

  • No. i do not believe Canada should use capital punishment against first-degree murderers.

    No. I do not believe Canada should use capital punishment against first-degree murderers, because killing them would make you no better then they are. Murder is murder. Capital punishment should be abolished in general, because it serves no purpose. Just let criminals serve their sentence. There is no need to murder anyone.

  • Canada Should Not Use the Death Penalty

    No, Canada should not use capital punishment against first-degree murders. No matter how heinous an act a person may have committed, that person still has a right to life. To in turn knowingly murder that person would be a grave mistake on the part of the country. Thus, Canada should not use capital punishment, at all.

  • Death penalty is not an effective deterrence of criminality.

    According to Amnesty International, the increase of crime rates is higher for countries with death penalty than those countries without death penalty. Further, the fear of death penalty does not affect enraged individuals and professional killers from committing a crime. The intention of death penalty is good, but there is no evidence supporting that it would deter crimes.

  • It should not be allowed.

    It is worse to live a life in jail and constantly have to dwell over your murders and live a pitiful existence than to get an easy way out such as the death penalty. The death penalty should only be used on people who pose a serious threat to others.
