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".

I'm all for life sentences but as far as lethal injections and electric chairs go.. I'm not a fan of it. I believe that killing someone.. even in the name of justice is immoral in itself and negates the ideals of "Just". We don't have executions where I live... not anymore. And I think it would be better off that way.


ok hypotheticaly some guy comes into your house and kills your mom dad....everyoen you love now should he just go to jail?
now me i think they should be executed in the same fashion that they did whatever it is they did be it flaying shooting shit like that

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.


Imaginative? I hardly think anyone would stand for punishment that isn't Prison/Death sentence. 25 years in prison, while it might not necessarily make somebody turn a new leaf, i really doubt that they are going to try and get back inside the second they taste freedom again.

And "convenient suicide"?
...If that was what they were after , why don't the criminals just pull the guns on themselves?

i don't agree for two main reasons:
1) What if the person is found innocent after death?
2) If they are guilty for something bad enough to get the death penalty, then they don't deserve death- which is the easy way out-...they deserve a life full of remorse and torture...

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


well, it's the same in Sweden, but Norway doen't have lowest crime rate, actually, it isn't even on the top 10 list, the place with lowest crime rate is actually Hong Kong




Source please :o


Hai ^^ http://www.mapsofworld.com/world-top-ten/countries-with-lowest-reported-crime.html
I dunno where I got Hong Kong from, must have thought about something else The right country chould be Burkina Faso ^^

Off-topic a while...

Ermm your source indicate lowest reported crime rate. This could means crime that are not reported.

Going by the countries in the list, it is hard to believe they have low crime rate.

Burkina Faso 9.30
Mali 10.03
Syria 42.26
Cambodia 47.97
Yemen 63.22
Myanmar 64.54
Angola 71.52
Cameroon 78.17
Vietnam 83.56
Bangladesh 89.66

So, that's all for crime rate. This topic is about death penalty.

Singapore has a low crime rate because of dealth penalty (by hanging). This may sounds extreme but it works. http://www.spf.gov.sg/stats/stats2007_overview.htm

Under the Penal Code,[18] the commission of the following offences may result in the death penalty:

* Waging or attempting to wage war or abetting the waging of war against the Government

* Murder
* Abetting the suicide of a person under the age of 18 or an "insane" person
* Attempted murder by a prisoner serving a life sentence
* Kidnapping or abducting in order to murder
* Robbery committed by five or more people that results in the death of a person

Under Schedule 2 of the Misuse of Drugs Act,[19] any person found in possession of more than the following quantities of drugs receives a mandatory death sentence:

* Opium: 1,200 g, containing more than 30 g of morphine
* Any controlled drug (except opium): containing more than 30 g of morphine
* Diamorphine (Heroin): 15 g
* Morphine: 30 g
* Cocaine: 30 g
* Cannabis: 500 g
* Cannabis mixture: 1,000 g

well in my country the death penalty is not in use...our prisons are overfilled and many prisoneres live in a quite luxurious "cell"..and our sentencing system is bad too imo.
there was a lot of bad voices when it came up in the new a murderer got permision to go watch a soccer match...(well not unescorted of course) but it takes away the fast that prison is meant to take away their freedom. many prisoners have internet, have games to play have a lot more conviences then some normal people.
life-sentence is a joke, here you can apply for an early discharge after 1/3 of your sentence...no joke..
the court is as slow as ****

i actually would like to see capital punishment here...only if for the reason that some crimes are so crazy and they get life-sentence and then they get discharged after ...12 years or something...i call it not responsible..
i don't think prison here is made to let people suffer...i say get death-sentence back...get it over with quick and don't believe that it's worse for the criminals to be just put in jail.

The problem with the death penalty in the US is that it isn't public. Hundred of years ago people were hung, or shot in front of crowds. People weren't hung because it was efficient, it was so people could watch their body hang there. It was a way of scaring people into obeying the law. If someone needs an incentive not to kill someone I doubt a needle will have as much of an impact as a firing squad or a noose would. I don't think that drug charges should warrant capital punishment just the most extreme of homicides.
I believe that if they really want the death penalty to work they need to make it viewable by the public and it should at least be a firing squad. Honestly what does it matter if it hurts was the individual worried about their victims feelings? I doubt it, and besides whats suffering gonna do? They're dieing its not like they'll be emotionally scarred or anything.
And the idea of letting them suffer in prison would be worth considering if it wasn't for the fact that they just sit there and do nothing to give back to the society that they're mooching off of.

Texas is the number on state in America that utilizes the Death Penalty. <-Just a funfact that i'm not very fond of since I live in Texas.

I argue..CRUEL & UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT.
A life is a life no matter what they had done or will do in the past, present, or likely future. An individual has their own life to live and they can live it any way they like. A punishment in crime should focus on rehabilitation so they won't do it again. Sending them to death ISN'T going to help them one bit.
Everyone deserves second chances no matter who they are.

ALL FOR IT!!!
those murdering, raping bastards need to die. hell they should have the exact same thing happen to them!
but at the same time, some people need to be killed, and the killer should not be punished, because they did the world a favor.

like if i was to kill someone, it would be because i deemed them unfit for society. and they were a neusance to the general public.
i wont kill though, i doubt very strongly i could get away with it, and i dont have the desire t do so.

Don't be so cold-hearted. If you kill them on television first off, that would be endorsing violence. Media and violence have already been a bad match already adolescents. Paying taxes isn't JUST for criminals, although a small percentage of it does, it is also like they are paying for their own safety so it wouldn't matter.
