If an individual is posing a high level of threat to others then yeah, they should probably be executed. Apart from this, I'm generally against the death penalty unless it's given to a terrorist leader or something along those lines.

If it's just between having a death penalty and not having one, then no, I'm not necessary against it, although I think the requirements to be put on death row should be much more stringent. However, I'm a firm believer in putting terrible criminals to good use by using them to test new medications and experimental treatments. Instead of subjugating innocent animals or, even worse, the public to experimental treatments and medicines that might turn out to be very dangerous, why not test them on sick murderers and rapists? They'd be killed anyway, but this way, their death will lead to far more accurate and reliable results that we just can't get from testing on animals. It's a win/win situation, really. Plus, it'd probably be way cheaper than what we're doing now.

I'm against it. Simply because some people who get innocently accused could be put to death because of it, and it has happened more than once that somebody who was innocent has been accused, but got out of prison like 5 or 10 years later because new evidence was found.

Yes I'm against it as some people don't deserve death they deserve to be tortured for the rest of their life. For example people like Hitler,myself etc.

I agree with this comment but WTF? with the last part?

Yes. As much as I want people who take the lives of others to be in a permanent dirt nap. Who are we, or anyone to have such authority?

Show people that killing is wrong by killing people.

We are not to decide who lives and who dies.

Imprisonment would be the best option.

Yes. It likely won't deter any future crime, and no offense to those who support it but it just seems like an excuse to justify you using your emotions in regards to what to do with a person's life.

If the proof is 100% unarguable like a killer who was arrested at the scene with plenty of witnesses then 100% for it, and speed it up. No reason someone should be on death row for 10 plus years first.

Schedule it for 3 days after a trial and put 3 bullets in their head and be done with it.

Life in prison should not exist. That is many thousands of tax payer dollars wasted of someone never going anywhere.

In an idealized delusional world where resources are inexhaustible and solutions can alway be made available, yes I will be against it.

In practical real world setting where resources are limited and there are many more pressing issues and problems we need to address, death penalty has it's value.

It could provide deterence, at the very least prevent repeat offenders of very henious crimes.

Some victims could gain closure and resolution (justice) from it.

Society would have an outlet for their anger and frustrations against crimes and violence.

No. Some people deserve death; not everyone is reconcilable. If I were given the Golden Hand of Judges, I'd be more than happy to pull the lever on certain individuals.

I don't know. On the one hand, some crimes are so heinous that simple incarceration just doesn't seem like an adequate penalty but on the other hand, is the death penalty really effective as a deterrent?

Yes, it's pointless revengism.

And, really, just the possibility of executing an innocent person should be enough to deem it as wrong. You can free someone if you send them to jail, you can't bring them back if you murder them.

Morally, not at all. In practice... it's complicated. In an ideal world the main advantage would be not having to waste taxpayer money on keeping those subhuman shitbags alive and well for decades in prison, but currently as far as I know it ends up costing more. Then of course you have the problem of false convictions, which is only going to get worse as technology improves and with it people's ability to fabricate evidence. Fortunately that problem doesn't exist for scum like mass shooters who get caught at the scene, though.

Absolutely not. Some people just deserve to die. In fact, it'd honestly be better if we had an even worse alternative considering there are plenty of people that death would be too good for.

The thing is, not everyone who gets put on death row is a monster. There have been plenty of cases wherein a person has been wrongfully convicted and executed.

150 people have been executed wrongfully in the US alone. Have a look: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_wrongful_convictions_in_the_United_States

I'd rather have 100 killers live and be imprisoned than kill one innocent person.

Honestly, it feels like the people who are for the death penalty are mostly just emotional and react to crimes on a personal level. That, or are psychopaths themselves who are just looking for legal ways to kill people. If we ever found a way to be 100% error free in all of our judgements, i might reverse my opinion and support the death penalty for extreme cases, but until then, under no circumstances is it ok to kill in a developed society.

No. Some crimes are unforgivable. The pain it causes to the loved one if someone is murdered,is just something that cannot be understood unless you experience the same thing.

Though method of death should be painless and not choking someone. Thatvis dreadful. Poisoning someone is okay

That is a wrong assessment of people imo. Yeah people are definitely emotional but doesn't mean they always take it personally. It's only in extreme cases that a death penalty is given. People are emotional that is why we have courts and a judge. Many will say kill that person who commited an atrocity which they deem is unforgivable but a judge is there to ensure a fair trial and try not to sentence a man to death unnecessarily

or are psychopaths themselves who are just looking for legal ways to kill people

honestly don't know about this

. If we ever found a way to be 100% error free in all of our judgements, i might reverse my opinion and support the death penalty for extreme cases, but until then, under no circumstances is it ok to kill in a developed society.

i doubt you will say the same thing if the crime happens to you. I know humans make mistakes but we operate on proof and in such conditions all proof is gathered carefully. 80% of thr time the person is a criminal

I support it, but I feel that, ideally, it should ONLY be used for murder (still considering whether rape should be considered for it) and it should be the loved ones of the victim who decide if the penalty should be given..

The fact that you believe i would make a difference because a different victim is involved shows that you would too. Thus, showing that you are not objective.

So, to put it simply, your message shows that

A) You understand that you aren't objective

B) You react emotionally to this as you would make a difference depending on who the victim is

Those 2 things show that you aren't rational. Plain and simple.

Now, to reiterate:

1. Not sure about the latest research, but back when i was in Law School, Texas on average killed 1 innocent person for each 25 people they killed. Imagine if one day you got arrested for something you didn't do, sentenced, and are waiting a death penalty for a crime you didn't comit. Now, lets do the 'I doubt you will say the same thing if "the punishment" happens to you. The fact that the system is more often right than wrong would be of little value to you then.

ah heck, there are so many other points i can bring up, but i don't have the strength.

Simple, if your proximity to the victim makes a difference in your opinion about the law, you aren't being objective, you can't decide on life and death if you can't be objective.

I support the death penalty, it's essential for a healthy nation, for instance, Singapore, a nation that belongs to the developed world, that not only is one of the richest nations but has one of the highest GDP (PPP), proudly practices the death penalty against drug dealing, for instance, it became a nation that is truly winning the war against drugs.

Singapore lacks any natural resources, the country mostly relies on intellectual capabilities, services than anything else, a nation that truly domains a capitalist system at a high intellectual level.

First-degree murderers deserve the death penalty for the safety of other prisoners.

Loading Video...

-

The death penalty should become an indispensable legal procedure, a total inherent branch of a fully working legal system, for the sake of the society, for the safety of other people, for the safety of other prisoners that committed crimes of lower importance, first-degree murder and drug dealing should be punished with the death, a total natural decision by any reasonable mind that seeks for prosperity.

Yes. In my opinion, it is a morally, financially, and economically poor decision to sentence someone to death as it embraces and teaches vengeance and using your emotions is the right of passage. Not only that, but having somebody sitting on death row for years at a time can cost millions, it also doesn’t serve as an effective deterrent for crime, and there have been innocent people killed on death row.

@chimeroid: humans make mistakes. So yes sometimes an innocent can be a victim. And if you deem it wrong what do you propose as punishment? Life term to an innocent is as good as killing one. Some crimes are horrible and sometimes putting a person in a cage is just not the punishment
