There is no death sentence in Holland, under any circumstance, and I completely agree with that. No one should have the power to end someone else's life, and in quite a lot of cases it has turned out that death penalties were given to the wrong person.

There is no death sentence for must crimes in England. Most painful form of execution, complete muscle paralysis by injection.

There is a death penalty in America which I completely agree with. If someone kills another in my family, or me, I would want revenge by ending their life. I don't care about the misery they endure during life in prison, I want them dead. You take away someones right to life, you forfeit your own right.

We have in America the chair, lethal injection, in some states they still allow hanging, and I think we still do the 5 gun thing or whatever where five soldiers stand in front of the guy and give him a few bullets to the head. I think that is for the military though. I actually thought that we completely abolished hanging, but turns out they still do it in Utah, and I think one other state.

i agree with you , death penalty should be there , folks in my country are thinking of changing the hanging to death by lethal injection i personally think if you are going to sentence some one to death make it as painful as possible so that people will think twice before commiting a crime

I'm afraid I can’t agree with you on that. Killing someone is a regretful thing to do, because they could not be saved. This is the last thing they will know on this earth, what reasons have we to make it unduly painful? They cannot be redeemed once dead and the only reason for inducing such pain is redemption. Witnessing this will not save others they will come to hate the errors, (rightly so,) as someone who has been mistakenly convicted is sent to his death, screaming and flopping about in his own piss and blood, revolutions, civil war, has been started over less.

crimes of hate and passion are only a small percentage of the murders commited

many are commited in cold blood, by sentencing aserial killer to death many future victims can be saved , how can you say that the man will not commit any more crimes when he comes out

You misunderstand I' am not arguing against the death sentence. I' am arguing against undue pain while killing them. A few bullets put through the head and its over, but if you cut a vein and left them to bleed to death, while giving the pain intensifying drugs, maybe broke there legs with a baseball bat first, and then they turned out to be innocent. Could you defend that? What of their relatives? Hell what of them? And if there was a god, what of you?

may be you are right, anyways death sentece can act as a deterrant unless they are colombians i'm told

and we must ensure that the justice system is good and no innocent person is punished for the crime

Canada is a very peaceful country, we abolished capital punishment in 1976 after a 98 hour debate in the House of Commons or Senate, not sure which, most likely Senate. Even so, our last two people executed [by hanging] was in 1962. Getting rid of the death penalty did not affect our murder rate that much, in fact, last year our homicide rate was the lowest its been since 1967, with only 548 murders last year [down 6.6% from 2002]. Now we just throw our murderers in jail for the rest of their lives where they will most likely be beaten and/or killed by their fellow inmates.

I do not support capital punishment, I dont think it is an acceptable means of punishment as it does not prevent or deter criminals, even so, neither does a life sentence. With the death penalty, there would always be the chance of executing an innocent person.
