Life sentences are better.
Yeah let's kill you for killing someone. That's not ironic at all.
Seriously, most European countries have done away with it. Why not America?

Longest sentence in Norway is 21 years, but you can be judged as .. unsuitable to rejoin society & therefore must be longer in prison.

By the way, be critical to my link. Pretend, that one 1/5 of it is true.

Oh and, Norway does have the lowest crime rate, most police officers patrolling (the few that do) don't carry guns etc

I feel that death penalty is not a solution, but a problem. By killing the criminals we're no better than them. Instead we should work to redeem them. Placing them in jail for life will only make them bitter & even harder to redeem.

I am pro death penalty, since there are cases were the murderer is proven to be the killer, or serial killers and other child molesting morons, they deserve to die, since they would get a lifetime penalty if not a death penalty, and I really don't feel like paying for a serial killer's food supplies. Also it is not nice to know that the prisons are filled with potential psychopaths who might someday kill you or some acquaintance of yours.
Of course the death penalty rules must be more strict. It must be absolutely proven that the person who is sentenced to death did kill someone for their blood-lust or any other psychopathic unreasonable reason. Also to what extent someone's crime must go so that he can get punished with the death penalty.
Of course I am aware that there were a few cases where the so-called murderer was sentenced to death but in the end after his death they found out that he wasn't the murderer. I would blame the incapability of the justiciar for doing his job incorrectly and of course the jurisdiction's loopholes. Well, shit happens. Anyways such cases are rather the exception.

I agree with you. Unfortunately the prison here is like heaven :S The criminals is gettin better food than us pupils (That's a 100% true fact) and they got more TV channels than a lot of normal familys does. But still.. Sweden has a very lowe crime rate... Strange O_o


Lol I know what you mean about prison being a heaven our system offers inmates a chance at a better education than we who stay out of trouble and work our butts off to earn our right to have an education and all the luxuries of life.


Really? O_o That's weird... Can't understand how the politicians thinking when they accept things lika that :S

I find it's interesting that the Conservatives support the Death Penalty but are anti-abortion and the Liberals are against the Death penalty and are pro-choice.

I'm against the Death Penalty. I think criminals should work their asses off to earn their keep. They should pay for their own room and board like the rest of us. On top of that, they need to pay back to society for what they did. I don't consider sitting in jail doing nothing is a form of "paying your debt to society".

i dont think it should exsist.

Its a bit sick some one choosing who can live and who has to die!

So no death penalty but the courts should be a bit more imaginative with there punishments. AND also have the life sentance thing actualy for life! Not just 25 years and then say "sure bye then, have fun killing people again".

If you have the death penalty only for some crimes or only if the person admits to it. people might just never admit to it so no one gets killed OR they admit to it just so they get killed, like a convinient suicide.

Capital punishment is a money saver though i can't say i like the thought of killing off people that has a chance of becoming "better".
