Death is too kind for some of these scum. Let them work back what they took from society and then go right back into their solitary cells. Let the maggots rot psychologically.
Also, conceding that the government has the right to legally kill someone is abhorrent. Let's not empower the corrupt.
So, its bad if they do something cruel/illegal, but perfectly fine if we psychologically torture them?
It's not torture. We aren't doing anything to them.
When you chose to commit that act of sin, you're already damned and does not deserve any chances or sympathy from society. Keeping murderers in cells is a waste of tax payer's money. Why are you paying the expenses of someone who murdered someone else's daughter? To reduce a society to fixed order, there needs to be a form of deterrence to these kind of people and the death penalty does that. Of course if they don't care about the penalty and goes ahead in committing their crimes, all the more are they unworthy of forgiveness and chances aren't they? If you think that a civilized society has no place for the death penalty, and that people in support of the penalty are heartless-coldblooded-people-who-don't-give-a-damn about-the-bible or God, that is your belief and your stand. If you are an atheist and believes in repentance or hope, then so be it. There are reasons why certain countries legalize the death penalty and why states in US doesn't. It's funny to see why western countries criticize countries like Singapore for their death penalty law and ignore muslim countries like Saudi Arabia (behaded 80 people so far in 2015).
