I see no other way out for mass murderers that have killed 20+ people... just simply let them 'think about their actions' in prison? what if they don't even have a conscience?...
we all want justice and sometimes, the death penalty's the only way of compensation

I think we are just being hypocritical when we start killing people off when they have killed off someone. I think anyone who kills someone should be literally have a life sentence in jail, let them rot there.

I support Capital Punishment. To hell with what the human rights groups says! If a criminal is killed by CP, it would show everyone that they would suffer the same fate if they did what that criminal has done. This will surely decrease criminal rates because people will think twice before doing crimes.

Well, they don't just put the suspect to death so suddenly. There is a long time of investigation before the suspect is given the CP. ^_^

The treaty against capital punishment (human rights) I seem to remember is a voluntary one, unlike, say, the one against discrimination. New evidence rarely happens. A greater problem should be confessions made when promised life instead of the death penalty. If someone has no conscience, it is a legal definition of insanity, and the question is: should criminally insane be executed? Personally, as long as the insanity is not temporary, I don't see the problem. The only difference between this person and another eligible for death, would be a smaller possibility of being rehabilitated. I am not sure about resources being saved by giving someone death, I seem to remember that the cells and everything that goes with it, is rather expensive, at least in the US. IN other countries with less wait before execution, it's pretty cheap. All studies I've been shown shows that the penalty itself hardly ever scares the potential criminal when contemplating crime, only the possibility of being caught and sentenced. This should be especially true in cases that leads to the death penalty. Being sentenced is bad either way, being sentenced to life or being killed only matters when trying a case.

i believe that punishment must show that to do someting is wrong. death penalty is killing. how can you show that murder is wrong by doing the same thing? furthemore, to put a criminal in jail for a lifetime without possibility to ask for pardon may be an even bigger punishment (i personally would prefer death to wasting my whole life in a closed place)

I say a life in prison would be the same, if not worse, then just dying. Besides, it actually costs more to have capitol punishment then jail. Finally, we aren't setting a good example - saying "Don't kill people! It's wrong!" and then doing it ourselves. So pretty much me conclusion is yes, it is wrong.

i dont think it's necessary...just lock the bad people up til they can't spell their name anymore


Thing is, people in prison seem to get everything these days. They get televisions, radios, games consoles, etc.
Surely this defies the idea of prison to get them to regret their previous actions and to reform?


i agree with freengirez!! instead of suffering from what they did.. they are able to eat 3 square meals a day..and get all those priviledges!!! how unfair is that to the relatives of the victim...

i'm a huge fan of capita punishment. thats right, i said fan.

i definatley think that there should be more executions for those really bad convicts. it would be even better if they were public executions, they'd act as a great deterrent/spectator sport.

I guess it would save a lot of money since keeping a inmate alive costs like $23000+ of tax payers money and killing them through lethal injection costs roughly $86.

So look at it this way, do you want to pay(or have your parents pay) to keep a person who killed another alive?

I think we should have capital punishment! We shouldn't have to pay taxes so that lowlife SOB can just lay around in jail. If they have done such a bad crime just end them simply. I don't like life stentences it makes us all pay for them which is unfair and wrong. Or if not life sentence then put the whole jail to work on anything. Put shock collars(so you'd have one person back at the jail sitting at a desk watching them on a map ready to shock them if they try and run or hurt somebody) on them drive them out tell them what to do and if they leave the area they ALL get shocked. Have it so the collars can track them where ever they go and if they try to take them off BIZ-ZAP. Also put in a camra so you can see what they're doing just incase. Now that sounds like a fun jail time experince. Have them work to just do somthing instead of nothing. With the little money they make they can somewhat support family outside of jail or go to returning to outside of jail fund, or maybe something nice to have in jail.

Also I do support other punishments for different crimes like
rape or molestation- it's time to cut somthing off.
shooting- they can learn to live without their trigger finger can't they?
drug selling (major drug selling) maybe a hand or somthing

Of course the facts must be checked over many times and many things proven. Maybe I am being too angery at the law system we have, maybe alittle to extreme but it would decrease the crime rate
