• I think yes

    As if you commit a serious offence e.G multiple murder why should the killer be put into prison were they have a chance of being released and therefore maybe perhaps committing the crime again. Even though however if you think that being imprisoned is a worser punishment than death well If something as suggested happens to you wouldn't you want justice ? This is my opinion though not trying to ofened anybody

  • Take a life, get your life taken

    Even though people say the 'eye for an eye' system does not work i feel the need to say it does. Murders and rapists wreck lives of innocent people or wreck the victims family as someone has been taken away from them.If the death penalty was in place it would maybe help people not to commit crimes.

  • Public vote on a death sentence

    Abolishing capital punishment hasn't made much of a difference in crime rate as far as I know but not every one agrees with it. The public should be entitled to cast their votes on a death sentence as well. Some people will agree, others won't so there will be some regulation. All we worry about capital punishment is the execution of somebody innocent but over the years, we've made an improvement in collecting enough evidence to make sure that offenders are given what they deserve. If we can sentence a criminal to life in prison appropriately then we can have executed appropriately.

  • Capital Punishment Should be Used in UK

    Unfortunately, some people commit crimes that are considered inhumane or atrocious. These people should be put to death rather than sapping state resources for years upon years. The United Kingdom should legalize capital punishment with limited appeals in order to reduce the burden death row inmates place upon a nation's resources.

  • I do not agree with joshpop99

    Joshpop99 is wrong as statistics show that people in America-where capital punishment is legal- do commit crimes at the same rate as states without capital punishment.Crime rate is not lowered and this shows there is no need for capital punishment and things are okay in the Uk as it is.

  • The Justice system is flawed

    If the Justice system is ultimately flawed and susceptible to bringing innocent people to be sentenced through false evidence, then capital punishment is one of the few irreversible sentences. There are countless examples of the wrong person being convicted of a crime. Letting someone out of prison is easy, but bringing someone back to life is impossible. Because of this, capital punishment can cause irreversible damage to innocent people that shared the right to life. It is true that it is unlikely for innocents to be convicted, but when they are, and they will be in an imperfect justice system such as ours, then could you really take the blame for letting an innocent person die? That's the same as a murderer.
