Meh, some people deserve it, sometimes Jail time can actually be quite peaceful when you get used to it, not like a normal one, but still not as bad. I believe that people should only be sent to death sentence if the proof is very very clear that it's the person, and/or if they confess and give an explanation of their deeds because anyone can just lie about doing the crime. Why? I don't know, but it can happen. :3 I don't find it too cruel to give the death sentence, I mean come on these people killed, might as well kill them too, refuse them happiness moment for their deed. :3 Meow, resurrected.

Also, for some people, please don't go "Well the Bible says '-----' and so that means it's wrong", meh, I'd prefer you go ". Religion shouldn't have it's place when deciding in anything political (which this is political really), because religion doesn't have it's proofs and you can't make laws off of crap like that. I'm sorry but until your religion is proven 100% correct in everything, it cannot be used for laws... which I'm sad to say it probably does... >.< bah... Lets not turn this into a "I think it's wrong" "It's bad! No kill innocents" spam thread, like.... just about every topic that is posted in..

And Digs, ONLY ONCE!? :_3

I'm for one is for the death penality. There is some really wierd people in this world should have to pay for what they did. You killed somebody you deserve death. For all the pain you put the victiom's family through.

im against the death penalty, no one deserves to be killed

nycthora: by his standards then who ever puts the crimanal to death should be killed and the cycle would never end...the criminal is someones loved one....they have family memebers that grieve over their lost as well

but its not considered cruel anymore b/c they got rid of the electric chair...so now its like milder...(speaking of anyone remember "Shocker" *shivers*)

Oh and their can be innocent ppl put to death just like there are innocent ppl sent to jail for anothers crime...and once youve killed them there is no oops my bad well bring them back...just more things to consider

Don't get me wrong guys, I'm not all for the "He killed he dies" thing, it really depends on this situation. It's just some cases, that person is just bull sh*t of a person and needs to die. Most people are way too concerned about punishing that person with the worst way possible, and being ass holes. I mean I know they killed a love one, and for you (if you're religious), you're just going to get yourself sent to "hell" too.... I mean all these people are like "U KILLT MY SON!! I MAK U GO DEATH KEKEKEKEKE" I find those types of people wrong.... I mean they killed someone, but they may still be a good person inside. And of course they're NOT all good people, so to death for them!

Also Lilprince, I know it may sound mean for the death penalty, because they have loved ones. But that shouldn't really be the judge of anything, it's about that person and maybe the person he/she killed and that's all. If we put the family game into everything... nothing can be done. "They'll feel sad he's in jail." "They'll feel sad if he dies." "They'll feel sad ....". It's not about how much they're loved, it's about that person.

^ Ok, so they killed someone without their consent, and that's fair for them? "Woohoo, I get to live!". What the hell? The butt load of people would just go "I want to live, I want to live" and guess what? They get to live somewhat peaceful lives, have their laughs, after they ruthlessly killed someone, and probably aren't making an attempt to learn from their situation. It's just damn stupid to go "I want u to kill me T.T" Another reason why they use the death sentence is, because they pose a threat to other prisoners (If they don't get isolation), and if they kill someone else. Who's fault is it that prisoner got killed? Whoever let that person live.

^ oh hookie but that was just in reply to the They took someones loved one...the same could be said the other way around that if you put the victims relatives an suchs feelings into play then why not the criminals...each side would have loss a life, if the person goes to jail they can atleast see them or call them ya know..send a letter...

Posted 6/4/07
a murderer deserves only one sentence and that is the ultimate price:his life. a person who takes another life deserves to die because the other person(s) didnt yet they still saw fit to kill. however, those who kill in self defence should not be punished,
those who kill by accident deserve a life behind bars (it was accendental, therefor their life should not be taken to pay the price yet they took life so their life must change forever).

HokiePokie, it's really offensive when you say "religion doesn't have it's proofs and you can't make laws off of crap like that." Some of those religions have very good ethical systems by which many people should follow. It's not just Judeo-Christianity, but Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and etc. They all teach that a person should live a good and happy life and be at peace with everyone around you though religions could be either left-handed or right-handed path.

Anyway, back to the topic, at some point in time, an example has to be made and it has to be made clear that some actions are clearly prohibited. But, and a big but it is, if something could be prevented but it is not, anyone who had the power to prevent yet did not should also be tried along.

yeah i know man I'm always on the fence about things like this, its like well if they make it something scary like u kill u die then ppl wont do it but alas some ppl are just nutters and inconsiderate...

and I'd be lying if I said that I wouldn't want blood shed if someone I loved was killed but, id only say it wouldnt prob really want them to die...b/c I'd want to carry it out on my own lol...*cough* but ya...

skygod33: oh but I really disagree with the whole if they kill someone by accident they should be in jail for life? wts kind of logic is that...accident is not intentional...so like if you were hunting and accidentally shot someone would u want to go to jail for life for that? (although hunters should be inprisoned hmmpf)
