    I am VERY opposed to the death penalty. The state does not have the right to put people to death. It is not an effective deterrant, it promotes murder/killing, it teaches our children that human life is of little worth, it creates more trauma for the people who are left behind...and innocent people have wrongly been put to death. It revolts me.

    I was just reading up on capital punishment in the states, Utah still has a firing squad! Last man shot was in 2010! can you imagine that job???
    2 states still do hangings and electrocution , the others are all lethal injection , for those who agree with it what method of execution would you agree with?

    But more importantly - the legal system does make mistakes, and innocent people can be wrongly found guilty. For as long as there's a chance of that happening, I don't think the death penalty should be used.
    Executions actually cost more than life in prison.

    It's atrocious the whole thing brings on such overwhelming, powerful emotions.

    I'm against death penalty because I think it's the easy way out for the criminal.

    But I'm also against serious offenders get released early. IMO serial killers, brutal murderers, child molesters... should be life sentenced.

    I agree with the dealth penalty being an easy way for criminals. I mean life in prision or death. I'm sure alot would choose the latter.

    But I feel that some of the most horrendous crimes need better punishment then what is given out.

    Even in countries that have introduce the death penalty, there has been no decrease in brutal crimes.
    So it's not a deterrent.

    My opinion on death penalty changes quite a bit but I think it has more to do with the fact that a 'life' sentence never means life. I think they need to sort it out so that lifers never get out and are kept with just their very basic needs met. None of the rubbish that cells can have - tvs music etc

    I'd stick them in a jail cell with no food or water and let nature take its course. Inhumane, yes. But why should people who commit such dispicable crimes be treated with any more respect than they gave their victims?

    Because that turns you into a murderer, and do we then give you the death penalty? Then the person who kills you is the murderer. Like I said, an eye for an eye turns the whole world blind. Taking away life is never ok.
