  • 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.

  • God gave us life

    There is a season why God gave life. . . For it to be endured not taken. But it also not fair when other kill and simply get to live in jail for life where they get three meals a day and a bed. What does it makes you when u kill a murderer-a hero. .
    No, It makes u one of them. . Ryt?

  • It is not a deterrence

    The death penalty does not deter crime. It is a weak method for revenge. What if one victims family were opposed to the death penalty and so for the murderer to be killed was actually to be harming them more and causing them more grief. Would you make a rule that it was up to the victims families whether they died or not? In which case how can you call that justice when some murderers would die for a sin that others would be forgiven for depending on the family of the victim?

  • It makes you just as bad

    The main reason for people getting the death penalty is murder. But if we murder them surely it makes us just as bad. Plus God and the Bible tell us not to murder. People only have one life. Why would you take away some ones one life?! No!! I am totally against

  • Everyone deserves a second chance

    The death penalty is inhumane, meaning that someone is terribly cruel, and has a satisfaction when someone is suffering. This could be sawing a victim in half, or stretching them forcefully until their muscles rip, or, their joints disjoin. This is completely unacceptable, torturing them until they drop dead. What if they were framed? Or, accused wrongly? Would you like to see your mother, or father, beheaded? I would not, but if you do, well you should be beheaded! Although the death penalty may be changed to a quicker death, this does not mean the victim should still be killed, and that is critical, because everyone deserves a second chance. All they need is a little help from someone, not tortured by someone. Who is the real murderer here, the executor, or the victim? I reckon everybody should follow this saying; “do the crime, spend the time.” Instead off “do the crime, burn them alive, chop off their head and obliterate their limbs”. Sounds very friendly, doesn’t it?

  • Basic human rights

    The death penalty is the denial of the most basic human right which is the right to life. The United Nations Declaration of Human Rights states that everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person. So if the government has the right to take a life what other rights might they deny us? Could they take away our freedom of speech, our privacy or our right to education? During the 1930s and 40s, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party took away the rights of around six million Jews, homosexuals and disabled people. Those people were beaten, starved, tortured and executed. This act of genocide shocked the world and after WWII, the world united to agree on minimum standards of dignity for all human beings, this standard is known as human rights.

  • Why killing someone

    Why killing someone when your basically doing bad too everyone deserves to live even cruel people maybe later in life they will cop on instead of committing crimes....WAIT BEFORE YOU KILL.....!!! Maybe you should wait before you kill someone and let them loose a whole beautiful future ahead of them 😫
