Theres no death penalty here and im happy there isnt cause i want the murders to suffer in jail then get the easy way out
Suffer in jail? You mean get free food, free housing and fabulous health care all paid for by your tax money? Laughing
It's still a lot of liberty taking away from them. Dno
It's not excactly like they get a free vacation for doing a crime.

I'm for it, in a way.
Like Kurtni said, fair enough they've been put in jail, but they get all that stuff that she listed. The person they've murdered have got absoulutly nothing. Their families have been scarred for life.
Tbh, If you take a life, you should be willing to give up your life for it.

Kurtni:

On another note, how do you think they'll find on their next case, about the man being put to death for molesting an 8 year old. The injuries she received required surgery to fix and she will permanently face psychological problems, if you're unfamiliar with the case. The guy is arguing that the punishment is cruel and unusual because no one has been put to death for anything but murder.

He should get beaten and then killed for something like that tbh.

How very inhumane.
Subjecting people to physcal abuse and then killing them?
These are the actions of a corrupt military dictatorship, not of a civilised society.

And molesting an innocent child so much she needs surgery isn't inhumane at all then?

So beating a man up doesn't make you just as bad as him?

Maybe, Maybe not.
I just feel, if you have the nerve to destroy an innocent child's life, you deserve just as bad.

He may deserve it, but there are better ways to punish someone than turning into a violent criminal yourself.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

I agree with it for the most part. Although has anyone ever seen the film The Life of David Gale? It's heartwrenching, seriously, but it's a really good film.

imo, to willingly give up your life for it is one thing. to have it taken away from you as in the death penalty, is entirely another. What does that make the person who administered the lethal injection, or the chair? A killer. if they kill someone like that, what makes them any higher than the law than a common criminal? I agree, two wrongs don't make a right. especially when it involves human lives.

That doesn't make any sense to me. Coolio You're using law to say that the death penalty shouldn't be allowed, but the law is exactly what allows it.

Isn't that the same as being murdered, having your life taken away from you?

But there's always the possibility that the person you think murdered or molested someone actually didn't do it, and you're taking away two innocent lives.

I'd rather have a person in prison, so you can atleast try and correct the mistake, than kill a person in the belief that the person did something very wrong when really, they didn't.

By that logic, we shouldn't punish anyone for anything because we might be wrong.

Any kind of punishment is something we shouldn't do. We typically shouldn't lock people up in cells and strip them of their freedoms- but we do that when we send them to jail. We shouldn't take peoples money- but we do that when fine people. However, I doubt anyone is suggesting we stop sending criminals to jail or or fining people for wrong doings, so that particular logic just seems flawed to me.

wrongful imprisonment or unlawful taxation can be reversed with compensation if a mistake has been made. There's no going back after killing someone.

There's isn't a single government who is perfect and we know this you only have to see the mess we're in right now as evidence of that.

In the uk during the late 90's early 00's There was a series of over a 100 court cases surrounding cot death epidemics when one or more child had died due to an unknown genetic disorder now associated with cot death, because if was unknown in the majority of cases the prosectution rested on the statements of 'Professor Sir Roy Meadow' who fundamently assured the jury that it was impossible that these children had died through natural causes. making dozens of parents child killers, they were then sentenced from a minimum of 10 years to life, not just one or too parents but dozens and dozens. The majority of these people who've spent the last 7 years away from their families and imprisoned have now been released on appeal as new science evidence has overturned what there ''proffessionals' deemed impossible.

But the point stands if these parents had been convicted in pro death penalty country's as their victims were young toddlers they would have been sentenced to death and seeing as the time frame between the new findings and when they were convicted in some cases lapsed over 10 years they more than likely would not be still waiting on death row.

That is just one case of when the law has got it terribly wrong and how the severity of the crime has overshadowed common sense and it has become a witch hunt.

speaking of witch hunts, weren't the innocent defendants in the salem witch trials all hanged before the accusers spoke up of the falsehood. History has a problem of repeating itself.
