In death note.. Light killed people that killed people. I'm not sure if this is right. I think the goverment is spreading a bad example. But if we stoppped killing people that killed people, the crime rate would go up. What do you think?

I'm pretty sure there's a fair amount of evidence and support that shows the death penalty does not reduce the crime rate.

The logic behind the death penalty works like this;

a) if X kills Y, X will be executed
b) X does not want to be executed
c) thus X will not kill Y in his own self-interest.

In reality, part B usually won't apply. Why?

Crimes are very rarely, if ever, committed with a consequence in mind, and most homocides are carried out during moments of high emotional stress, i.e. angry people aren't the most logical. So being executed later on, they aren't even thinking about that. It'll probably make them regret killing the dude, sure, but the victim will still be dead.

But on the flip side, to those people who think the death penalty is never a good idea -- no.

A good portion of criminals are repeat offenders. This is why America's prison system is absolute shit and illogical. We're spending millions of dollars to simply incarcerate an individual for X number of years, and then releasing them into the world with no training, X amount of years lost doing nothing constructive, and then being surprised when they return.

Prison for life rarely means, for life. 98% of inmates will be released and return to society. So why are we feeling smug about putting them behind bars? Ignorance. American society is largely ignorant and vindictive.

I could write a whole paper (and have) about why rehab is a smarter option over punitive incarceration, but to cut to the point, there are some criminals that simply cannot be rehabilitated. These are the individuals that should simply be put to death for the overall benefit of a civilized society.

Well, chances are that if we let the murderer alive, then he either has to stay his whole life in jail, or he can get out of jail after a while, and chances that he/she will murder again are very high. But if he/she will stay forever in prison, what is the purpose of keeping someone like that alive? They will have no goal to achieve since they are condemned to stay in jail forever, they will only cost money to keep them alive with food and other necessities. So, why not get rid of them completely while we're at it? Pros are that the state has not to pay for their survival in jail, and we don't have to fear that they might get out of jail and start their murders again.

Now, I would like to hear what makes you think that it ain't profitable to get rid of a murderer, i.e. contras. And don't come up with, omg killing is so immoral, the murderer doesn't give a shit if killing is immoral, so why should we care if it is immoral to kill a murderer? Please, be creative...and don't be all Christian-like.
