Death Penalty Debate
Posted 7/10/11
Who can say who deserves death? It is not up to any judgement. All killing besides self-defense is murder.

"If you are doing an illegal activity in my city, if you are a criminal or part of a syndicate that preys on the innocent people of the city, for as long as I am the mayor, you are a legitimate target of assassination." - Davao City Mayor Rodigo Duterte, February 2009.

I support death penalty as it dramatically reduce crime rate. I'll be using Davao as a base example for why I think so.

Davao, a very dangerous city for criminals, is renowned as the "most peaceful city in Southeast Asia" for one main reason: Duterte's strict laws. Rodrigo's rule over Davao started around 1988 and since then, crime rate has been dropped greatly.

So yeah, I don't believe that death penalty "does not decrease crime rate" and I think it should be implemented one city at a time.

I think the death penalty should be applied to multi murderers, rapists and pedofiles. They don't have the death penalty here in canada, but they should. If your christian and worried that innocent people with be convicted and killed, don't worry. god will handle those situations on his end and they, like us all, will get what they deserve. extended prison terms rarely benefit the convict and many once released repeat their crimes. The whole reform system sucks, but that's another topic. Death is never the worst possible outcome.


nope i don't think death penalty is the solution for that... and how come god will handle those?? god himself said in one of his commandment "thou shall not kill"...

it's morally unacceptable...

Problem is, what's legality within human society, but something permeable and subject to change throughout human history? Case in point, it used to be that slavery was legal, and killing disobedient slaves as a form of discipline with lethal force, was the rights of slave-owners protected by laws. Furthermore, assassination isn't a death penalty, because it's not a states' sanctioned legal process. But rather it's a personal vendetta without a fair trial. It's no different than the Punisher's sense of vigilante prejudice in fiction, and nobody's that arrogant in real life yet without fault.

Moreover, legalizing abortion can reduce would-be criminals due to unwanted birth. When crime rate is also subject to change due to how crimes aren't being reported, while no fair trial nor careful investigation were given.

The 103-page report, "You Can Die Any Time: Death Squad Killings in Mindanao," details the involvement of police and local government officials in targeted killings of alleged drug dealers and petty criminals, street children, and others, and describes the lack of any effort by the authorities to investigate the killings and bring those responsible to justice.

"The hundreds of targeted killings in Davao City in recent years are clearly not random events but the result of planned hits by a ‘death squad' that involves police officers and local officials," said Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch. "The police consistently fail to bring the perpetrators to justice, while the local government cheers from the sidelines."(citation)
