personally, I'm against it for various reasons. One is that most of the time the criminals are killed slowley and painfully, taking minutes to kill them. being that the criminal is dieing slowly and painfully, It should be in violation of the eighth Amendment (no cruel or unusual punishment). Another reason is that mistakes can happen in the legal system with the death penalty, meaning that innocent people could be sentenced to it, because in a matter of 25 years, 23 reported mistakin innocent deaths have been recorded. In the end, all capital punishment is saying, is that two wrongs make a right.

i seriously DO AGREE with a whole lot of people here who are against capital punishment.

kudos to all of you.

Although many committed crimes are inexcusable, exercising the death penalty is plain wrong. If a person had committed a brutal murder, they should be dealt with accordingly, but the death penalty breaks the line.It violates the unwritten rule of human dignity and rights. As a remedy for crime, it serves no positive purpose and effect. As Mahatma Gandhi had once said: “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”.

In my point of view, to be dead is an easy way out... so to truly punish someone it would be to give them life sentence so that they can reflect on what they've done instead of the death penalty.

Only one person with this opinion (only read the first page :p)

I totally agree. The death penalty is like, a couple months of extreme stress, then it's gone. Life in prison is the worst you can get cuz your going to suffer so much more over such a long period of time. I kind of think it's wrong to give mass murders the death penalty because it's just so easy. But in these circumstances, i guess killing the criminal that did the wrong doing would provide the most closure to the families who were affected by the actions of the person. And in the end what you're trying to do with the justice system is, as well as reforming the criminal (which probably can't be done in the cases where a death penalty is warranted) , trying to ease the grief of the parties involved.

I believe if you take an other persons life in senseless violence then yes you should have the ultimate punishment. The ultimate punishment to me is death, but I don't believe in the lethal injection. A quick injection of potassium for a fast heart attack is too easy. I believe you should be punished the way you took the life of the victim. I also believe child molesters should have the death penalty for that offense. The government takes out way to much money out of my paycheck that go to taxes for prisons. Prisoners have more medical benefits then I do. I'm tired of paying for their frivolous lawsuits. Do you realize that the government pays the prison more for their daily care then they pay for the care of the elderly in nursing homes. Maybe if criminals felt scared for their lives they might think twice of senseless deadly violence. Its not just because I live in Texas that I believe in this, but TX does have the highest following through with the death penalty sentence.

I'm against it. Killing someone just because they killed another is saying that you're no better.

Goddam, how are the supposed to suffer? They should suffer in prison. Not get the easy way out, death.

i believe in capital punishment. it only seems fitting. the only thing about it is which way to do it. there's the american method of sitting on death row for 20-25 years and then getting a lethal injection, used to be electrocution which used to be hanging. seems effective for revenge purposes. the criminal sits in a tiny cell and isn't allowed to do much just sit there and contemplate what he's done and then he dies. it also allows new oppurtunities to find evidence in case of wrongful convictions or maybe some mercy. however it's very costly with food and all that.

the other method is the chinese method, trial, sentencing and then you get taken out back shot in the head and they charge the bullet to your family. quick, efficient and vengeful. but is it a good enough punishment? ya the criminal is dead but he didn't really get the chance to really suffer. but then again you saved thousands and thousands of dollars.
