Than it does to keep them alive. You just don't get the death penalty for anything. You have to have killed multiple people or committed a crime multiple times in order to get it. Besides, with the way they have it now the bastards don't even feel any pain when it happens. It's actually BETTER for them just to be killed rather than spend their life in a jail cell alone and going insane/killing themselves.
I think the death penalty is still necessary and very rare cases, such as frequent child molester or child killer. Those people, in my view ,deserve to be put to death right away. However, gang bangers, drug dealers, people like that, I feel deserve to simply serve their time. Whatever that is.
The death penalty is a practical solution for a major problem. Death row inmates sap state resources and spend their lives taken care of on the taxpayers' backs. With that in mind, the death penalty gets rid of the worst criminals in our nation, and they don't suck resources for decades.
Yes, we should still use the death penalty, because it is a good way to get back at people who have done terrible things. With the death penalty, a victim's family can know that it is absolutely impossible for a person to offend ever again. The death penalty should be used sparingly, but it has its merits.
The death penalty is a necessary evil in the world. It is the only way you are going to deter certain criminals from committing certain crimes. The death penalty should not be used too much but in circumstances where there is a large killing and no remorse the death penalty should be available.
I believe that the death penalty is constitutional. I support it, but I think that it should only
be used in rare cases. I don’t think
that it should apply to any drug cases, regardless to the quantities of drugs
involved. I think it should only apply
to murderers and serial child molesters.
A human beings rights ceases to exists when he violates the other person's. We must understand firstly that these people who are even being considered for the death penalty ARE different from your other criminals. Due to acts that are SO grotesque and acts that endanger the public these criminals MUST face the action. When a government gives death penalty for certain crimes it is ENSURING that it acts as a deterrent factor to all potential rapists,murderers and serial killers. IF you argue that the law system must evolve, the simple argument is that WHEN THE ANIMALISTIC MINDSETS of these criminals have not changed, why should the law system evolve ?
Why kill people who do sins. Every sin is great so what is the difference from them killing someone and you lowing or cheating or thinking of someone in lustful ways. You just giving them a shot to get to hell quicker. They can ask God for forgiveness and go to heaven by killing them your taking away time for them to ask forgiveness. If they die for murder then why don't y'all do something to the person who ejects the shot into the person and kills them. Think God will forgive everyone for there sins because Jesus Christ died on the cross for mine and your sins so that we can go to heaven. For God so loved the world that he have his only Begotten Son, and whosoever believth in him Shall now perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
No, we should not continue to use the death penalty. All human life is sacred and every human being has the inalienable right to life. As this right to life is inalienable, it cannot be taken away from a person no matter what heinous acts that person may happen to commit.
