  • Life in prison ain’t cutting it

    Look at all these monsters who torture children, Viciously murder their partners, And go on mass killing sprees. In a state where the death penalty is outlawed, The most that scum can get is life without parole. Like huh? You kill a child or commit multiple homicides and your punishment is to be fed and taken care of for the rest of your life. Nope! Bring back torturous executions, I wanna see these cruel motherfuckers suffer.

  • 8th amendment has got to go.

    People only do right because one thing. Fear. Fear of being punished for doing wrong. The 8th amendment does nothing but take away this fear. We'd not have people murdering others, Rioting, Burning down buildings and being violent savages if they knew what they'd have waiting for them if they are caught.

  • Torture should be an acceptable form of punishment for serious crimes

    Truly monstrous people deserve severe torture for their crimes such as rape, Murder, Etc. Maybe more of these people would think twice about committing these crimes if they knew how awful the punishment would be. I'm tired of seeing these people completely zoned out during trial like nothing is happening. The only thing that comes to my mind that could trigger a response from them would be hearing they're sentenced to severe torture for x days, Then death.

  • Only because they don't follow it

    Unfortunately the government doesn't seem to follow the eighth amendment, Which forbids things such as torture, So why even have an amendment forbidding it. It's just a waste of time and space to go over it and consider it a law. If it were actually being followed as it's supposed to be then no, It should not be repealed.

  • Delete the 8th

    The presence of the Eighth Amendment in the Irish Constitution is a source of discrimination against all women living in Ireland. It creates a discriminatory health system where a pregnant woman only has a qualified right to health care. International human rights organisations have repeatedly taken the state to task for its draconian abortion regime, observing that it violates women’s right to bodily integrity and self-determination.

  • Yes, because we are too lenient on crime.

    Let's face it: our enemies are getting bolder. I believe it is high time America gets bolder too. I know conditions in some countries are tough, but as a Christian I believe we have a duty to follow the law and if we can not do that then maybe we need a new constitution

  • It is ineffective, And soft on criminals.

    Getting rid of the 8th amendment is the best way to reduce crime. Look at Detroit, LA or Chicago. They are just a few examples of cities with terribly high crime rates. There lots of murder, Rape, Assault, Robbery, And being on drugs to name a few. Cruel actions deserve cruel punishments. Revenge is human nature, And it’s happened throughout history. Take China for example, China doesn’t have a big drug problem, Because people who commit drug offenses are likely going to be executed by shooting, Whereas we usually put them in jail for a few years. In order to reduce crime, I believe living conditions in prisons should be horrible. Prisoners deserve day by day beatings and torture. The Death penalty should be expanded to more crimes. The death penalty must be crueler. Big time criminals should be crucified, Impailled, And go into an Iron Maiden. This may sound monstrous, But it is the only way to reduce crime, And turn cities like Detroit into peaceful places.

  • Humans are humans

    We must protect other citizens even if they do something wrong. Many people mights do it for reasons such as fear or money. Many are just accused but they did not physically do it. We should treat all humans with some type of respect and this will allow it to happen.

  • Both lives need to be respected Mother & baby.

    Taking a life is wrong it is not natural. Animals get treated better than these aborted babies. How can you have more respect for one life over another. Abortion is not a simple solution that some are trying to portray. Bring in abortion and everything will be fine I don't think so. Taking life is wrong,wrong, wrong. Níl sé ceart.

  • Babies and mothers have a right to life.

    Taking a life is wrong its not natural. Animals get treated better than these infants that are aborted. Its not a simple solution like many want to portray it. Bring in abortion and everything will be fine. I don't think so. How can you have more respect for one life over the other. Both need to be cherished and other solutions found. Taking life is wrong, wrong, wrong. Níl sé ceart.

  • Don't Throw Out the Baby with the Bathwater

    While there are reasons to waive the Eighth Amendment in the case of someone like a terrorist suspect being captured, it is an awful idea to get rid of it across the board. Doing so would result in a drift to the far right regarding criminal justice, and would take away many of the rights that the accused presently have.

  • We are civil.

    No, the 8th Amendment should not be repealed, because it is a good thing that we do not have cruel and unusual punishments. I do not necessarily agree with how narrowly the Supreme Court has construed our right to be free from cruel and unusual punishments. However, not having physical punishments is a good thing.

  • It Should Be Upheld

    I believe there are parts of the Eight Amendment that the government itself has decided not to follow. This does not mean the amendment should be repealed, it means it needs to be upheld. Our government corruption should be addressed with such things as the Eight Amendment. We shouldn't just shrug our shoulders and decide to get rid of it.
