Death penalty should be legal, for murdering and raping at least. What happens is that some people, whilst robbing or committing crimes, murder people. Sometimes people murder on on purpose! Why? Hatred? Personal revenge? Even then murdering is still wrong. Just imagine, someone murders, goes to jail, comes out, murder again. These people should be hanged to death! I mean, why should someone be allowed to play sports, read books, even LIVE, when they have taken a life away from someone else? As for the raping, it's worse than murdering. Invading someone's privacy. Actually it's demolishing a human right! Would you be able to live with that on your conscience? I wouldn't.
Yes, the man killed himself, but before then he was in prison for kidnapping and rape before. While also being linked to two other girls. He was let out early, and because of this, two more girls were abducted, and one was murdered before her time. The fear of most children has risen, as well as fear for parents whom have young girls. This is not fair that this man was let out early and a young girl was taken from this world. He should have been put to death for the first two, instead of having the luxury of being able to end his own life, on his terms. This does not give the families the justice they deserve, instead gives them a larger heart ache. Being the oldest sister of six, and one of the twins being molested at 8 months makes my heart break, especially since this man was never caught.
The death penalty serves justice. If you think that you have the right to end someone's life, you deserve the death penalty. If you don't have respect for someone else's life then you don't deserve the right to die. Our jails are for people who commit small crimes. Our tax money should go toward keeping death sentenced people alive.
In this time of vagrant disrespect for the law we need the death penalty. Way too many times justice is not served and people get away with murder. The legal system is too lenient and does not let the criminal pay the price of the crime which was committed. Too many times instead of the death penalty the criminals lawyer fights for a more lenient sentence such as life imprisonment instead of the death penalty.
Yes I believe the death penalty should be legal because if you kill someone you shouldn't be able to just go to jail. You should have the same punishment as the crime you committed. There has been some cases where the criminal gets off on parole. Also they could be stuck on death row for max 20 year!
Death penalty has been used throughout history as a way to punish individuals that have committed certain crimes. In the recent years, through research, accuracy in one receiving the death penalty has increased. Many things have been discovered by Psychologists,involving things such as why innocent people confess.Laws have been made to prevent the innocent from being executed. There was a time when innocent people confessed to murder because of brainwashing incidents. With the increase of knowledge , and more laws added concerning the death penalty, those individuals sentenced to death have actually committed the crime they have been punished for. Each individual in the United States has been educated abut the death penalty and crimes that have capital punishment.With the increase in knowledge, he decrease in sentencing innocent people to death, the death penalty is fair.
I think if you kill someone, especially if it it premeditated, you should be killed too. Yes, it is somewhat harsh, but killers should not be living and have a possibility to escape prison, and get to eat, sleep, and other activities in prison. People in poverty have it worse than them, and they didn't comit a cold blooded crime. Also, tax payers should not have to pay for them to live and be supported in jail. An argument comes up that they don't learn their lesson just dying,but the suspense and ultimate fear they get when sitting on that table with the needle in their arm, the fear is unbearable.
I say that the death penalty should be legal because of how our justice system works nowadays. It happens way too often, where a murderer will NOT serve their entire sentence due to good behavior. A few cases have been where a person had a life sentence got out on parole. This SHOULD NOT be okay, and It's not acceptable. The death penalty should be for those criminals who commit terrible crimes, like murder in cold blood and murderers who killed a lot of people.
I strongly agree with enforcing the death penalty in all states. I believe if you kill someone or cause bodily harm that results in death or a severe loss of quality of life, you should also be sentenced to death. The only problem is that many people who are on death row in states where it is legal sit on death row for 20 years. So that being said the system should be fixed as well. Life is prison sometimes is too good for the disgusting people who kill others. I say make the death penalty enforced everywhere.
Murderers just see prison as a walk in the park. Any normal man who has been sent to prison vows not to go back. The psychopaths that kill and rape are fine with prisons, if they weren't, why would some just give themselves away when questioned? Would you be more scared of being in the same building for the rest of your life, or knowing you will die? Personally, I think the US' 'Lethal Injection' is too kind. Why give them a painless death, when their victims more than likely suffered? You could make it seem a little more scary. I'm not saying that all crimes should be punished by death, only the repeat murderers and rapists that have no remorse. I don't wish death on anyone, but if the sanctions were feared more then it would surely discourage crime, don't you think?
The death penalty should be banned! All life is important. It's just not right. God made that person for some reason, we just have to figure that out. Also, it costs more to kill a criminal with the death penalty than to keep them in jail. Think about your dad, mom, siblings, or anyone close to you being killed, not just by a criminal but by the government.
I think that the death penalty should not be legal because that's obviously why we have jails and prisons. We don't need a whole lot of punishments, I mean, that is just retarded if we already have punishments and want more. It's like asking for more food when you already have.
The constitution of the United States has always paraded the words, "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." I believe this should extend to even the worst of the worst. Under no circumstances should ANY higher authority take away the life of another human being unless it is consensual. Even the government. Murdering a murder is not justice. It is hateful revenge.
If someone commits a crime, why should they be allowed to have the easy way out? Yes, maybe what a person did was terrible but they deserve to rot in jail and think about it for the rest of their lives. That is so much more torture than just giving them a place to lie for the rest of time.
Say my family was killed by a criminal I would want them to be hanged and tortured and i'm sure all of you would want that too if they did that to your family but the point is it isn't right to take away someones life even though they took someone else's . Two wrongs don't make a right. I would hate it if someone killed my family but it is wrong i would want them dead.
The answer to that is no. Not ever. God is the only person who has the right to determine when a person dies. Who ever decided that the Government has the right to kill us if we do something bad? Plus, imagine how the families feel. The family that lost a member because of execution and the family who lost a member because of the executed person. I'm sure they wanted revenge but not that type of revenge. It's not right and like I said....Two wrongs DO NOT make a right.
This goes against constitutional rights, if we let the government take this away who knows what other rights they'll take away, life in prison is a worst sentence then being put to death its more torturous knowing you'll never leave those four walls you look at ever again, and besides did you ever think how it effects the people having to inject someone and kill them, or how about the wrong accused who die for know reason at all.
To support the death penalty only to give the highest punishment is wrong. In a way, a murderer should receive live in prison, completely isolated. Of course he should never be released. If you think of it, live in prison is worse than dieing only because that prisoner is alone and has nothing to do the rest of his or her live other than think of what got them there. The death penalty could be used if that prisoner has escaped or has attempted to from jail. This prisoner should have no company and no entertainment. Lock him up in a small room, give him food. The toilet is inside so their is no reason to ever open, good bye bad guy, no death necessary, He will likely kill himself anyway.
Well why should some that did so wrong die and be free of all shame and guilt.It is not hard to die but it is almost impossible to live with such guilt and shame. Why does every one have to suffer for one persons wrong doings. And that is my comment on this subject
The death penalty should not be legal due to fact of sympathy prisoners get hen they find out they're being put to death. This may cause some people to want and commit suicide so doing crimes and being put on death row allows them to do this. The government and court facilities have no right to determine how your or should you die most crimes that happen didnt last until three days so is that really how long it took to solve the actual crime no and most poor people are sentenced too death why the rich can buy freedom because of the death penalty we are considered a threat to most countries why would the united states the free country want to be considered a threat is it to show power?
