Hey guys, I watched an episode of DeathNote recently and raised an interesting question for me. Is it right to kill criminals? And, please answer truthfully. This is the Internet, nobody knows you, and nobody will think badly of you.

No, and we don't do it often enough. It would solve the over crowding problem in our prisons too.

People set on death row too long I think, they need to speed it up and stop wasting tax dollars on prisoners

It's not wrong to kill criminals, however the administration of justice is often somewhat inaccurate so it's questionable whether it should actually be done in a real life context.

No it's not wrong to put a criminal to death. It is wrong to put to death an innocent man convicted of a crime.

Which is why I won't serve on a murder trial. There is no way for me know if this person is really guility.

Due to new tech, the amount of innocents convicted has dropped, but it isn't perfect. I only want to see criminals who you are 100% sure committed the crime put to death

I think all rapists, child molesters should be give ultimate punishment. Any crime like that against a Child is unforgivable in my opinion. I know as a Christian I am suppose to forgive, but I just don't see how when it comes to child molesters.

Please define the term criminal. No dictionary entry (a criminal is a person who has commited a crime, duh), but a philosophical one.

Imagine an immigrant, who has immigrated to a wealthy country. He tries the best he can, but he just cannot find a job. No one is willing to hire an immigrant. He left his wife and his kids in his poor home country and he was going to try to send money home to feed them. He tries at stealing, but he is caught and arrested.

While this person may be considered a criminal, was his intention unrighteous and immoral?

Also, what kind of criminals should be put to death? All?

Let's also not forget that while some people aren't criminals under judicial terms, they may still act immoral and unrighteous without ever facing a punishment (e. g. politicians, people on the other side of the system).

Another point is that our current world is missing liberalism. I mean c'mon, if I e. g. wanted to consume drugs or the like, it is my body and it should should be my decision what I want to consume. And yet people are actually put in jail for this.

A crime is a crime regardless of reasons. If no one follows the rules, anarchy would rule.

Not all kinds.. Murderers, rapists, child molestors, etc...
