Below state your opinion, no arguing, baiting for an argument, flaming or breaking any other CR rules.


My honest opinion on execution is that it is wrong.

Why you might ask? Because usually when someone is put to death it is for murder, and this make me think.
Does two wrongs make a right? If you think about it, putting someone to death for killing someone is the same as them killing someone. Also there are some times when people are put to death for things other than murder..

Like recently in Indonesia, a few men were put to death by firing squad for drug traffiking.

Now this of all things is wrong in my opinion.


Killing people are fun, getting killed isn't. So yes two wrongs always make it right

Only in cases where a person's been given multiple chances and that person seems to be beyond redemption.

Principally I consider it immoral and that's enough for me to oppose its use as a sentence. More practically killing a countries own citizens once apprehended, just isn't a power I'm comfortable giving any branch of the government. I'm actually with the right of center folks on this one sometimes there is a thing as too much governmental power. Not to mention the whole higher cost , executing innocents by mistake and lack of evidenced deterrent effect.

What about the guy that goes out and kills hundreds of people because they decided to start a cult?

People go out and kill others in the name of religion or because they're all strung out on something, why shouldn't they get killed as a result?

Animals hunt other animals, kill for various reasons and never blink and eye but if we go to execute someone for heinous crimes, oh well maybe we should just give them a slap on the wrists and let them be...

People are too damned soft in the modern era, back in the old days if you were caught doing certain things you were pretty much good as dead.

You realize that's the problem, right? For example, witch hunts...

The difference between the witch hunts and modern society committing crimes is witches didn't do anything wrong where as modern day criminals are. I'm not saying we should go out and kill every criminal but the punishment of imprisonment doesn't seem to work too well on hardened criminals. If you kill someone on purpose premeditated with no remorse at all then whats the point of keeping someone like that locked up in a place where our tax dollars are going. Then theres always a chance that someone will escape from prison and go out and kill more, why have that when you can just kill the person right off the back.

Weren't witches supposed to have made pacts with Satan, or something of the like? Whatever it was, it was considered very wrong.

It's not something I like but I support it. Way I see it should white blood cells feel bad for getting rid of a virus? The death penalty wouldn't be necessary if people only follow the rules society made. What makes it undesirably is the cost of multiple appeals and lawyers cost. I was part of a civil case "juror" and it came out the lawyers for a big oil company was being retain for 650 an hour while the lawyer for family was being retained for 550 an hour. Now times that by 8 to 10 hours a day for the case lasted 2 weeks. Now imagine or research cases that lasted for months if you want more information on the court costs.
I believe the condemned should only get 1 appeal and carry out the punishment within 1 year. "speaking only for America criminal justice system let other countries figure out how they want to carry out there punishments"
--My opinion--

People were accused of everything and anything back then, if you used herbs you were considered a witch. You're very misinformed on Wicca/witches in general I would suggest doing some research on what a witch really is and not go off the witch hunts/trials of old to assume things.

Just because someone was accused of something doesn't mean they're guilty of it. Im strictly talking about people that have gone out and committed a heinous crime and has no remorse or wish to reform, whether it be a hate crime, murder, drug trafficking ect ect.

Again not talking about killing most of the time unless the crime is extreme enough to warrant it.

But how does one define "extreme?" In the future, people may consider something a heinous crime that we consider completely fine. Or vice versa.

I agree with execution, given that it is only applied to very severe crimes such as rape or murder, where the accused is guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt. Not to mention the economic burden on all of us for housing such a terrible being for decades.

I think killing without remorse premeditated warrants as an "extreme" crime.

This is a moot point, due to the fact that neither of us have any control over what is done, we can debate this till we're blue in the face but neither of us are going to get anywhere.

Criminals should be executed when their crime coefficient is over 300 obviously....

On a more serius note.

Execution should not be applied if it is not absolutly nesceary, for example that there is no other way to deal with the offenders. There can also be that a criminal is innocent and executing such people is surely wrong and would it not be better to give criminals the chance to pay for their crimes rather than just kill them off?
