It's to show people who kill people that if you kill people, people kill you.

Hmm, never really noticed that. But yeah, that is quite interesting. Not a very good impression on the world.

A life sentence is kind of resources in my opinion.
Like food and space and shtuff.
But i can see the morality of it or why people would be against the death sentence.

Another thing is that old saying "Kill one, save many" or whatever could deffinatly apply to serial killers and the likes who got the death sentence.

We kill people who killed someone to teach them that killing is wrong because they shouldn't have killed them in the first place because it would be better than allowing them to stay in prison for the rest of their life because they will be kill due to a life sentence sometimes killing the killer is not allowed though

Translation of the above sentence with punctuation:

We give the death penalty to some murderers because a life sentence would just be a waste of money for the prison. There's no reason for somebody who committed an act worthy of a death sentence to be alive.

The real question here is what is a "worthy" enough of a crime to be announced as a death sentence.

God what a fucking mess, we're all killing eachother. The people who kill the killer will be killer. And the person that killed that person will get killed. It's an endless cycle.


Prepare for unforeseen consequences.

An eye for an eye turns the whole world pitch black.

If someone molested a little kid would it be fair if you just got the little kid to molest him back? No, because that sicko would probably be even happier.

me personally i believe the execution system is bullshit i think that your execution should be carried out only if you murdered someone and it should be the same way the victim was killed

(example: you stab someone in the chest, you should be stabbed in the chest
:you shoot someone in the head, you get shot in the head

i think if the execution system worked more like this that it would create less problems

Its an endless paradox in human judgment. By taking it apon ourselves to chose who lives and who dies, we play god. We've accepted a bigger responsibility then we can handle.

Killing is neither sinful nor dishonorable, but it can be wasteful. When somebody performs a wasteful killing, they have to be killed themselves so that no other lives are to be wasted for trivial reasons.

But killing is only honorable when it is performed for the sake of others, to protect innocents. Any other time, it's just wasteful. The death penalty DOES save the lives of innocents, but it's a subtle action that can't be tracked. One murder being executed may prevent the creation of another murderer. Perhaps three, or a dozen. Nobody is certain.

We are in fact the only species who chooses which actions are punishable by death.

I believe the chance that even one innocent person could be executed making it murder is too great, especially when people have come pretty fucking close in the past, at least in the US.

It is meant to stop people for killing since if they do. they will be killed. It's like people used to get their hand chopped off for stealing. I sure as hell wouldn't steal if I would lose a hand.

If there's even a small doubt they might not be guilty the death penalty usually isn't even considered .

Still, it's better than this topic being handed to those assholes in the politics forum.

I don't believe in corporal punishment. As long as a criminal is incarcerated then they are no longer a threat to society.

At the end of the day, how better are we if we stoop to the vicious, intentional slaughter of a fellow human being? It's very hypocritical and barbaric if you ask me.

Yeah but you don't seem to advocate chopping kids hands off for stealing a few sweets so why do you support the death penalty when someone could be put in prison for the rest of their natural life instead, removing them from society permanently and giving innocent people the chance to appeal.

Natural life sentence does this because there is no parole and the only way they leave prison is dead or from an appeal.

First of all, you obviously don't get the concept of the fact that if you kill a killer, you become a killer. You may mask them by calling them "Hero" but its all the same.
Second, I for one believe, humans go to jail. Animals get put down.

If you don't get what I mean by animals shut the fuck up and leave. Your not intelligent enough to have a worthwhile opinion.

Third, why are you insulting me? Although I'm only a teenager myself, I hate you idiots. You spew out profanity when ever you think somebody's opinion isn't correct. What you need is an attitude adjustment.

Calling it slaughter is a bit misleading since we don't publicly hang/shoot criminals like they do in the middle east (at least not anymore). We inject them and they die as painlessly and as humanely as possible. And who cares if we're better or not than the criminal? It's not like we're killing innocents as they did.

If a spider bit you on the arm, you would probably kill it, right? It's the same concept. Except with humans. Anything that damages society, society kills.

In that case, assassinating Hitler before the hollocaust started would be a bad thing, even though it would save over 6 million lives?
