Do you think a death sentence is right?

Personally I don't think a death sentence is right. There r a few reasons for that;
- The person is gonna die, so he doesn't even feel his punishment. He didn't suffer for all that he did.
- A human being doesn't have the right to kill another human, even if it's a killer. Killing him, makes me a killer too. Just like him.

So what are your thoughts about this?
In what cases can you justify a death sentence?
If a death sentence isn't right in your opinion, what other punishment should he/she get?

Personnally, I don't think that death sentence is a right choice for punishment because as you have said, one wouldn't be able to "atone his sins" and repay debts to society if he/she dies (does I sound like Kenshin? ). What is the use of killing people? For example a serial killer was sentenced to death, it means that the one who took this decision is he as inhuman as the killer. This type of punishment "an eye for an eye" isn't any good...though it seems disgusting for me to know that a killer isn't punished at all and is wandering aroung under the law...lol. However, I think that the authority should put the criminals in prison and try to organize something in order to make them repent for what they did and make them a better help to society

Personally I think this is a duplicate.

Generally I would say no, but there are some times when I fully agree with someone being executed. It's a very double feeling for me like who are we to play for God? But on the other hand isn't giving someone the chance (he/she can always escape from prison) to repeat his act playing for God too? Besides even if he/she can't escape, you're still putting the lives of the guards on the line...Then there is the fact that you can never be a hundred percent certain that you've caught the right person, maybe in a hundred years we will discover that our whole method linking someone to a crime by means of DNA wasn't right and that we've executed innocent people...

sorry to post this here but a little off topic message to Ihaz: Hibje als je al zo nodig offline moet staan accepteer dan wel ff m'n buddy request want anders kan ik geen vage irritante berichtjes op je pagina posten XD

I don't see anything wrong with the death penalty but I do think there should be a torture penalty instead.

no.death should not be and cannot be decided by humans.if by any chance,he commited a henieus crime,he should go to jail.atone for his mistakes.maybe the jail has facilities like a church or so?they could atone by praying to ask for forgiveness?if being in the jail is good,as in the people are kind and so,i think that by being in there,you could be spiritually cleansed even though you are not phisically cleansed...well...i'm kinda confused by my own words..

In France, death sentence was abolished in 1981 and it's a really good political decision... A human being, whoever he is, doesn't have the right to judge others' acts.

i think death sentence isn't right because it is better if you'll give someone a chance to change or just give him/her some lighter punishment ...

no becos its murder. 'an eye for an eye' wat if a guy was going round killing all murderers (which basically ppl who have the job of the death penalty r doing) does that mean he shudnt go to jail becos he was getting justice or doing his job. wat abt rapists shud we go round rapeing rapists.

Well, if there was thousands of criminals and one or two jails, I think death sentences are acceptable. Supply and demand lawlz.

Yes. It is right. Governments aren't rich enough to support inmates these days.
