It would help them, if they attempt to commit suicide, they want to die. Unless they decide they want to live after the failed attempt, the death penalty would be a blessing for them.

This doesn't make any sense .
Those people need therapy, besides is commiting suicide such a crime that you'd have to get death penalty for it?
If their attempt fails and they decide to go on living wouldn't death penalty the dumbest thing to do?
"Hey! I wanna keep on living! Nope sorry, you'll die anyway."
If their attempt doesn't fail or they still want to kill themselves death penalty would only be a blessing towards them.

For some, maybe. I know some who try to commit suicide aren't necessarily wanting to die whole heartedly, sometimes it's a cry for help. But overall it wouldn't really help, since the reason for attempt of suicide is to die.

Your reasoning is less than perfect. It's like punishing a steroid-using sprinter by giving them first place.


This is the best answer thus far.

As leviathan said, you would be punishing them by giving them what they wanted. Also it doesn't help that most who try to commit suicide would have mental problems, so if they were to attempt it, it would give them more of a reason to be successful because they would prefer to die on their own terms.

They should not be punished or anything but instead, be given some guidance and enlightenment that there's plenty of time to be dead.

Some one said once that there would be less suicides, if you would get a death penalty for it.
I couldn't find anything like an article ~ to bad.

so,
Do you think less people would try to end their own life if the would be killed for it?

I think so simply because most humans are afraid of death and simple saying that they will be killed if they do try to commit suicide, will make them think at least twice before acting.

Besides; you tried to kill someone(yourself in this case but still), don't you deserve death?


no you're right in fact we should sentence people to death by running a red light!

?

More people will attempt suicide if ever this law will be implemented. Death penalty these days are so peaceful unlike in the olden days. Its a combination of a sedative (i think) and Potassium chloride. Poassium chloride (KCl) works by inducing arrhythmias (irregural heart contraction and rhythm) which leads to bradycardia (or slow heart rate) then eventually a total stoppage of cardiac function. So basically its an easy death or painless death. Suicide cases comprises of jumping from buildings/bridges, hanging themselves, slitting their arteries, shooting themselves in the head etc. If they want an easier way to die, then these people will try to intentionally fail a suicide attempt and gladly accept the death penalty.

So unless the death penalty includes the olden age way of death penalty like the use of guillotine or other barbaric way of inducing death, then this idea may possibly work.

it'll stop the ones who are just fools thinking that they want to die~
besides wouldn't the ones who want to commit suicide for real be happy with this as well?After all it's an assurance that they'll die.

Wow okay even if that was true that is just fucking stupid, I suffer from chronic depression and anxiety so what your saying is if I start feeling suicidal or I say " I am going to kill myself" then get out of my depression later i am going to be killed anyways for feeling a way for a short or a long period of time but I recover. I really do not want to say more because I am controlling my rage right now but yeah I have no other comment.

so you'd think they'd be happy about it cuz suicide isn't guaranteed...

If people are trying to commit suicide anyway, and somehow fail...if they got the death penalty, wouldn't that be exactly what they'd wanted in the first place?

Blah. The idea's retarded, because what's the point of punishing someone by doing something they were trying to do in the first place?
People who try to commit suicide need help, not punishment.
