Question of the Day

for serial killers, yes.

Best Answer

Pretty much yes, as long as the crime warrants it. If you take some ones life prematurely then you deserve the same.

Best Answer

Yes !

Best Answer

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone! death is too good and too easy.

Best Answer

Yes I do support the death penalty, especially for mass murderers.

Best Answer

No. I do not. No human being has the right to take a life. The death penalty is the easy way out. It is our responsibility as members of the society to find an alternative. We need to eliminate wrongdoing not lives.

Best Answer

I believe that everyone who is sentenced to prison for a long time should spend their first night in a lovely suite that contains whatever it takes to commit suicide painlessly.<br />
<br />
Murder is never right in my book. Just because a government sanctions it doesn't make it right. I continue to be astounded by how many pro-lifers are eager to kill through war and death penalties. and they don't see the conflict! That's what I call insanity.

Best Answer

Killing a killer is wrong, that makes you a killer to. If one had to kill all killers, those who killed the killers would have to be killed to, and it would be a never ending cycle, and if someone took suicide their soul would be ruined forever... I say the chain of killing has to end.

Best Answer

No. The sanctity of life is not within the hands of man to decide and its just as bad taking one's life for killing another. Only the giver of life (and i do not mean your mother) has the right to do so.

Best Answer

Yes,maybe if we were like other counttries where if you steal something they cut your hands off, or if you rape someone they castrate you. Why should we have to pay for them to stay in jail,get a h/s dipolma,etc while the other person is in the ground. bullshit thats why they invented electricy

Best Answer

Once an opponent of the death penalty has to share there life with a murderer, they either perish, or change their position. <br />
<br />
The old experiment of sending murderers and thrives to other communities, does not fix the problem. This is why the "old west" worked so well, except in the case where the "Bad Guy" was a better shot.<br />
<br />
So, in our infinite wisdom, we think punishment of a few months, or years in prison, fixes everything, when we are just delaying the inevitable, by not having been vigualant in their childhood, to set the standards of behavior in their minds, with the caution of Consequence!<br />
<br />
Thereby laying the ground work for the, ultimate penalty. Then, abiding by the rule of law to discourage others from the same disrespect.<br />
<br />
Plato's dialogue with Secretes explains the need for man to live by a set of rules and laws, in order to function in a complex society, without offending the order of the community. Thus, the offenders must be felt with, according to the wishes of that society, including death, in the case of the probability that one may not be reformable. Why torture the murderer by burdening the whole society to care for his tormented mind, which there is no escape, for either? Ease the minds of all, and put to death, the those whom destroy life.<br />

A dog which eats the needed food eggs of a family, will never stop. Punishing the dog will never end its hunger. Which deserves the egg more? We must decide among ourselves how to solve this problem. Do we allow the dog to decide?

Best Answer

YES, AND NOT ONLY FOR MURDERERS. CAREER CRIMINALS ARE A BURDEN ON SOCIETY. CORUPT POLITICIANS OR OTHERS WHO DO EVIL TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. tHOSE WHO PUT THE REST OF THE WORLD IN THE TERRIBLE SHAPE THAT IT IS IN AND PAY FORR THEIR CRIMES WITH NOTHING MORE THAN A SLAP ON THE WRIST.

Best Answer

I am against the death penalty and absolutely agree with LadyVerona. There's not much else for me to say without being redundant. <br />
"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." -Gandhi

Best Answer

Yes. If someone kills someone else on purpose they do not deserve to breath air, or take up valuable space and resources on this Earth. And they certainly don't deserve my tax dollars for the rest of their life.

Best Answer

Only where there is certainty of the crime, such as for the murderer of the little Jewish boy named Leibby. They found the little boys feet in this man's freezer and knives...etc... In that case, yes, I believe in the death penalty where there is no doubt. But I don't believe in it if there is doubt because there are many innocent people right now in prison, and some are on death row who are innocent. I personally know of a man in a prison in Mississippi who got out of the service, hitched a ride home and his "ride" stopped and robbed a store and killed a man. They convicted them all together as equals, because he was with them. That is just sad.

Best Answer

you better belive it! Except they never really do it. What a bunch of pusses we are. People murder each other on a daily basis and all we do is put them in holding pens and spend a fortune on them and then either let them go and or support them forever more.

Best Answer

absolutely not. my hatred for it is so strong that I would consider NOT to go and live in a state that supports it. Reasons are:<br />
- many murderers and rapers are in such mental conditions that they wouldnt find death as a deterrent (they would think they ll become "martyrs", etc ..)<br />
- many may not even stop and think about the possible death penalty<br />
- i would not accept the state to have the right to take a human life. <br />
- a large number of murders and rapes are performed by people who have never been charged for a similar crime. so death penalty wouldnt "prevent so many crimes by eliminating the criminal"<br />
- one will never be certain that a person is the real culprit<br />
- death penalty is a legalized revenge, and revenge should never be legal<br />
- it is somewhat worse than the crime itself, althought one has the possibility to defend himself

Best Answer

ah, more importantly : a person who can be given the death penalty for a crime, would soon "have nothing to lose" and may escalate in violence. imagine a rapist: he would kill the victim to eliminate a witness if rape itself was enough to be legally killed

Best Answer

and that already does not occur? Ignorance is not bliss for the victums of these crimes

Best Answer

Not particularly. If the goal is deterrence, it has not accomplished much to deter people from killing each other. It does seem to work quite well in dictatorships (communist... fascist... theocratic... take your pick) Knowing you can die at any time for not following the rules can keep millions of people 'pacified' and crime rates low.<br />
That said, I fully admit that there are people for whom's state-sponsored "passing", I shall not mourn. (Enjoying your swim in the ocean bin Laden??) <br />
I know I am not being rationally and logically consistent, but humans are not rational and logical creatures.

Best Answer

Its not about that. If YOU kill someone especially during a crime-you have forfeited your RIGHT to life and I for one want to see YOU hang.

Best Answer

I'm pro Death Penalty for all prisoners who would receive a minimum sentence of 25 years in prison or more no matter what the offense is. Remember some one has been brutally victimized for someone to receive a minimum 25 years or more in prison. We always focus on why did the person commit this crime instead of what helping the victim.

Best Answer

YES!
