    Fine
    I think its fine. So long as the crime deserves it. They just need to be sure that it was really that person that committed the crime.

    But most of all, I am the flyest one you will ever meet.

    Not a huge fan of it. Just letting the fuckers die painlessly seems like less of a punishment than sticking them in jail for the rest of their lives.

    Then again, the death penalty is a hell of a lot cheaper on the Government's part.

    I think capital punishment is 100% Wrong!
    Thats messed up, majority of the people who commit crimes are insane, or have mental problems.
    I don't see how the government can take a persons will to live, even though they took it from someone else, its wrong.
    I think life in prison is 100% fine.
    But killing someone? Thats not right, 100% messed up from my view.
    If I became president, I would remove capital punishment.
    I don't see why we should kill someone for the mistakes they made in life, even if they where bad mistakes.

    That's a good point, seeing as there are dozens of instances where the wrong people are stuck in jail for years before being proven innocent but all of those cases are quite rare.

    I'm in Canada, and to my knowledge we don't have the death penalty. The cost of keeping one male inmate a year in jail is $140,000 though, and the price of a woman can range from $160,000 to $175,000.

    Not sure how much an execution would cost, but it seems that it would save tons of money in the long run, even if the executed person ended up being innocent.

    Capital punishment should be more widely used in my opinion. Be it an archaic form of discipline; it deters repeat offenders. Rather than wasting tax payer money on keeping social rejects isolated and sheltered we should be spending that money on helping decent human beings who have the will and drive to better themselves and their communities but don't have the financial means or education. If committing a crime means I get a roof over my head, free meals and healthcare it is probably better than the life I have a home free withing my community. I don't mean torture by any means either. But busting your ass doing some hard labor would ease financial woes, teach some skills and keep people from repeating their mistakes.

    Still, Mental or not, the government has no rights, what soever, to take someones life.

    Why should the government have the rights to take someones life? I thought everyone in america is equal.

    If you take the life of someone you deserve to die because you played judge jury and executioner with that person whether you are mentally stable or not I have no sympathy for a killer. If someone kills for any reason other than self defense or absolute unavoidable accident then they should be punished just as severely.

    Pros & Cons of the Death Penalty and Capital Punishment

    Another way of persuading would be by setting examples, showing the evidence.

    .. imo
    Capital Punishement is unethical.

    Yeah i think they should put Death Penalty to some crimes.
    Like child abuse.
    Those niggas deserve to die, also increase all penalties for minimun 3 years more, example you robbed a shop you should get 3 years, so people will think 2 times b4 doing it
    Improve and contribute to the LoL section, anything you do could save it.
