So voted YES on some sick fuck raping children, murderer going around killing people and laugh at people about it with no remorse whatsoever.. And pervert that kidnapped Women to forced them to have sex with strangers? Are you saying those sick fuck should be still alive?


Are you still supporting them? I'm talking about the people that are beyond reform...


A person beyond reform yes is a problem but its incredibly rare. But lets say we give the death penalty to one of these people Id say that is being far to nice. The death penalty lasts a few mins then their punishment is over. A double life sentense with no parole would torture them for the rest of their life in a max security prison. Why show them the mercy of death?

Yes. Combo of first and second options.

(BTW, I've moved this to the Polls forum, because that's where Poll topics belong.)

The problem with death penalty is the costs and the proof.
Can we have a magical device that can prove 100% whether a person is guilty or not? If we do, then it would be so much easier.
Another thing is the cost. If you think that death penalty is cheaper than life imprisonment, depending on the place, you'd be wrong.
If you think that in developed nations death penalty would be cheaper, you'd be wrong a lot again. United States? Yes, life imprisonment seems cheaper than death penalty. https://deathpenaltyinfo.org/costs-death-penalty
On the other hand, having death penalty and having an innocent suffer it, despite it being a minuscule chance, is really not good. Imagine if the person being wrongly accused and about to be executed is you?

In my opinion, which a lot of people find weird or just abominable, I don't think criminals should receive the death penalty. I believe in human beings as being good resources and tools. Not in a mean way but like an employee is a tool of the company that it has to take care of to function efficiently.
So... what to do with hardcore criminals? Make them do heavy or dangerous labor (mining, waste/radioactive cleaning etc) without pay but have them receive basic needs like food and shelter. If they rebel, treason and order 66.... Too humane, use them for medical trials on humans or something.
However, I know that what I suggest would only work in developed nations so.... that's also a problem.
That's just my opinion...

No, the worst of the worst show face the death penalty because for one, to have room in prisons and second they shouldn't be given the chance to hurt anymore people. Though only real psychos, those who can take lives or violate people and feel nothing.

We need to differentiate here... you can't say a drug addict deserves the same punishment a rapist should get. Except that person is both.
Same with murderers. Someone who killed another person by "accident" (like in a fight) shouldn't get the same punishment as a cold-blooded murderer who plans every step and how to kill his victims.
Also like a few other people mentioned already: its really hard sometimes to be 100% sure whether the person is guilty at all.

I mainly think no because the system in place is not able to teach them right from wrong. The system is also not able to help them get a job and/or any income source after they get out so they go back in for a similar crime. If their sentence is longer than 30 years.
My logic is think 30 years ago. How much changed from then to now? the internet got popular, everyone has a cell phone now, everyone has a computer that fits into their hand that can access a vast amount of information whenever they want, how we talk in a localized sense chagned, etc. with minor changes that make a big difference.
Re introduction will have to be done to anyone who serves longer than 30 years to this already not having enough money to pay for the prisoners the government will not pay to accommodate them to the modern time either.

Rapists (alongside abusers and molesters) and murderers should be locked up for the rest of their lives. Drug addicts should be given therapy and given another chance.

Aside from drug addicts im all for the death penalty for murderers and rapists. At least where I am from theres a lengthy process for execution so being on death row could be considered worse than death because it torments you psychologically. You get less freedoms than regular prisoners, are in solitary confinement and are never sure whether you will die tomorrow or 8 months into the future.

in an ideal world where we can fix someone so they don't murder , abuse ,rape , molest again yes i'm 100% for Repair and reintroduction into society.

Sadly we don't' have the methods or technology to do this so at the moment i believe they should go into prison.

Wouldn't that be every one that has ever killed someone though?
All humans can take lives and feel nothing under the right cirumstances
