  • Money is the biggest issue

    Yes, we should. There simply are people on this planet (mass-murderers, child rapists etc.) who are simply too dangerous to ever be released again. They will never reintegrate in society and keeping them in prisons for life costs a lot of money. Why should the tax-payer pay for a mass-murderers right to simply 'stay alive'?

  • It's only fair.

    Society has been running amok since the abolishment of capital punishment,new forensic procedures and dna analysis should ensure that no innocent person is wrongly accused and executed,the only exceptions to be made to sentencing should be accidental homicide,aiding in euthanasia and mental health grounds.Civilised society needs some form of discipline for extreme acts against its citizens health,well-being and security,the finance used for incarceration should be used for other more worthwhile endevours that help society such as social housing,womens refuges,youth activities,education etc.

  • Take a life? Give your life.Its only justice

    If they take a life we have every right to take theirs.If we send them to jail then they'll be living in comfort for the rest of their lives protected from the public's verbal abuse which is the least they can do as well as protected from being jumped and murdered themselves.

  • Revenge for loved ones.

    Sorry, I know you can't bring back the murdered loved one, but the person who committed the murder should be executed. Publicly would be the best method. Hanging or a bullet in the head. Don't tell me this is cruel. The act of the guilty should be cruel. They deserve to have their lives ended the same way they ended another life. Not playing basketball & lifting weights all while getting served meals every day for 50 years.

  • Justice system !

    I personally believe that the current justice system doesn't do our country any better than I did when we had the capital justice system but I strongly do think we should bring it back when it comes to terrorism punishments in the UK too little too late now :( :(

  • Bring it back

    We need to bring back the death penalty, with it in action the murder and crime rates would go down. People would be scared to commit the crimes. Why have tax payers pay to keep some criminal that raped or murdered someone when you can just take them out back and be done in 1 second. For stealing and such you could use the death penalty or do what that one country does and just cut their hand off or all fingers.

  • Its your choice

    If you where sentenced to life in prison it would be horrible but if you could choose between the death penalty or life in prison a lot of people would choose death penalty (me included) because it would be so much better because if your sentenced to life in jail it is the death penalty but longer and more agonizing

  • Yes we should okay

    We need to bring back the death penalty to get rid of the murderers and rapists. We should sentence them to death to get rid of them and it would make sure they would never commit crime again. People say if we ill them we are taking away their human rights, i disagree to this argument because if they kill they have taking a life so a see it as an eye for an eye.

  • People could still have innocence in them!

    Some prisoners change in jail. Some judges will then sometimes go over their heads and do uncertain calls! When you end their lives they never have the chance to repent yet the Gospel message is forever one of forgiveness, of reconciliation, of committed charity toward all without exceptions. Even though it may seem that death is a just punishment for particularly brutal crimes, the USCCB posits that the Gospel advocates forgiveness for all sins and transgressions. With other forms of punishment available, the USCCB argues, capital punishment is not an effective cure for society's greatest ills and crimes. Furthermore, the USCCB concludes, prisoners can change and find redemption through ministry outreach, bible study, and prayer.

  • Lots of failures

    There are two main issues.
    - Money: while there are no fully accepted statistics for this issue, most researchers think that death penalty does not cost less than life imprisonment, see http://deathpenalty.Procon.Org/view.Answers.Php?QuestionID=001000
    - Eye for an eye: while this principle could theoretically work, many cases show that we can not determine the criminal. Even Wikipedia has an entire list about this (entitled Wrongful execution). There are also numerous cases where innocent people were sentenced to life imprisonment and later got free because of the wrong decision. You can bring back a person from prison to life, but not from death.

  • We know better

    Killing is wrong, and we can't justify killing someone by the sate and say its wrong.

    If you don't believe in murder them how can you support the death penalty.

    It does not save money either, it has been found that keeping someone in prison for life is cheaper than the process of the death penalty.

    Also you can never be 100% sure you have hanged the right person. There have been lots of people found to be innocent after they have already been executed. Even if they confess this does not prove they are guilty, people confess to crimes for a lot of reasons.

  • A noble Cause, but a failure of an end.

    Now what do I mean by this? Simply put, The ends of Reducing crime can be achieved in other ways that are much more practical, and as a whole, The amount of contributing factors to a crime is Beyond Huge. When we look to the facts of the potential for innocents to die, and the intentions(Of Which I base much of my discourse on, being a Kantian.) of the action show that the cost is too great for the product.

  • It is soooo wrong!

    People can be under influence of drugs or could be forced into it. It is impossible to take back if a mistake is made... It wouldn't be punishing the criminal you would just be punishing friends and family who could be innocent.

    YOU ARE HEARTLESS IF YOU THINK WE SHOULD KILL PEOPLE WHEN THEY HAVE MADE A BAD CHOICE!!!!!!!

    What would the world come to if our only goal was getting even... ?

  • The death penalty is wrong

    A lot of you guys say we should bring back the death penalty, but have you ever stop to think that if we do bring the death penalty back, a person you love the most, for instance, a spouse or a family member might get accused of a crime that calls for the death penalty and they have only given him a week before his execution and you can't prove that their innocent but you know that they are, and finally a month after their execution they find that they weren't guilty but by that time its too late. And to think that you voted to bring the death penalty back that you took part of it, because, now that they are dead, the death penalty can't bring back the innocent people that they have killed, now would you vote and support what has killed innocent people and maybe even in the future, your family, to bring the death penalty back.

  • No as its not right

    People can get wrongly accused for something they didnt do then they would be dead and they cant say that they didnt do it and they cant deffend themselves........ It is unfair they should just go to jail for a number of years and that is it over and done with

  • It is immoral

    The death penalty is a terrible punishment no matter for what crimes you've commited. No one should have the power to take someones life because they commited a crime. They should be punished for it, but there is nothing that can balance out with death. There is no way to tell what happens after death, so why destroy their (maybe) only chance at living in this world for the bad things they did.

  • We would be just as bad

    If we kill someone we are just as bad as them. Instead of killing these people, we should bring peace back into this world. It would be inhumane to kill other people who could have once led normal lives. Some crimes are unacceptable, especially murder, however wouldn't we be the ones committing murder if we killed them??
