Do you think the death penalty is right? What do you think should be done to criminals? Punishment that fits the crime? Keep it clean though, this is in the Pub after all...:D

No person has the right to decide who gets to live and who has to die, it isn't right to take away the life of any human. No matter what we should never lower ourselfs to such brutal and needless actions such taking a life, torture etc.

More over deathpenalty can not be undone, if they find out that the convict was innocent afterall they won't be able to set him free. A last reason why I oppose to this is because improsoment for life is a far harder penalty. Death is the easy way out.

Sure it costs us some money but put scum such as murderers, rapists etc. in very primitive cells (no tv, radio or computer. Only the basic needs of a bed, toilet, table and chair) and let them work for their pocket money.

Personally I agree with Doenitz, no one has any right to judge another. As I have said elsewhere, there is no way to be 100% certain a person is guilty. However implausible they may seem, you can always come up with some stories to explain how something happened and the apparently guilty party is just that, apparently but not actually guilty. This is a big world, the implausible explanations are bound to be truth once in a while. I'd far rather let 10,000 guilty men off that send one innocent man to jail. Let alone death. It is not for us to deal out judgement, we can imprison men to protect society, and to give them time to think about what they did in the hope they will change their ways. If they change we can release them. But it is not for us to punish them.

Personally, and this will be a bit harsh but I think they should bring back public executions. We seclude things like that way to much, I think if people have that negative reinforcement there, they'll be less inclined to do such crimes. Yes, I acknowledge there are people that are beyond any sort of deterant. But I think it would have a fairly effective impact. I get tired of people that sit there and complain about harsh prison treatment and treat these people like humans but then turn around and complain about how high taxes are. Not to mention the people that shout these humane treatment deals are also people that have never experienced a violent crime to themselves or someone close to them. Hence why I just dislike the entire general populace...

Yet you are pro choice. Deciding wheter and innocent life should be ended for "convience". Ironic.

Concidering most of these guys end up getting paroled and cost tax payers about 80 grand to keep locked up per year, I would love to see the rapists and serial killers dead. If people see Joe Bobstien get hung in public for raping that 12 year old girl then that would keep people from doing what Joe Bobstien did. Fear is the only thing that enforce rules.

Hey Joe Bobstien did not treat that 12 year old girl like a human when he raped her, why should we?

This again?

YES the death penelty is good, we just need to enforce the god damn rule instead of letting them leech off us taxpayers for YEARS! And as you all know I wish there were public torture for the cold blooded shitheads in prison relaxing on their beds watching TV:mad:

I hope that Tookie Williams scumbag is thinking about his needle each and every night.

I guess I shall never understand to see how revenge nor convenience for taxpayers is true justice. As one person put it after the Oklahoma bombing, the only thing accomplished by his execution was changing the death toll to 169. :uhm:

Yet you are pro life. Ironic. Either way, the death penalty is the perfect way to get rid of murderers, serial killers and rapists. Why should they be able to take other people's lives and still have their own? They don't deserve to live.

Agreed, by murdering someone they forfeit their own right to life.

That is it right there. IMO once you cross that line and kill someone in cold blood you should have all human rights removed. Why should a cold blooded killer get to eat, drink, watch TV and sleep at night while his victim is in the ground and their family grieving. That is NOT justuce. Juctice would be making that cold blooded criminal feel pain day in and day out until we decide to eliminate them for more space.
