It's easier for us to kill them. Costs less money and another bad person removed from the world. Life is a beautiful thing. I wouldn't give it away for 1 mil dollar :/
I'm not saying it's right to do it. And I don't think it really should be done, but I can't denie how I feel about him.
If that made any sense at all :S

One major point being that the average trial for a death sentece case costs on average 16 times more than a comparable non-death sentence case, then the appeals also cost a great deal.

BUT people need those resources such as Food and Water!! Those stupid people don't deserve it. Poor families need them not those stupid idiots. They should be put to death...and that site might not be talking about having to keep a prisoner all it's stupid life......it's gonna come out to be alot more if they get life in prison......

No, the site is talking about how much it would cost to keep the average prisoner in for life. Besides, if the money didn't go to keeping the prisoners alive, it wouldn't go people in need (it's from the government, remember). The money would just get added to the big pot, and it wouldn't be put aside for public health.

Default Re: Death Penalty

Man these are topics most will talk about in high school in contemp problems.


Ahh well Capital punishment, i am for it i have no problem removing a person from society if it is for a justifiable reason. like those 2 kids who kidnapped another kid and murdered him just to see what it was like? where in the hell do they get the right to kill a person with no apparent remorse?

People say who's right is it for a murderer to be killed?

well what gave them the right to kill the person anyways ?

I know if someone came into your houses and slaughter your family just cause they want to see someone die you would want them dead and buried, hell i wouldnt give them a proper burial i would have them burned and then have their ashes burned in the process.

cost wise i agree it does cost to much to kill a murderer. so i say go back to the old vietnam days where all you had to do was walk up and shoot a person in the back of the head with 1 bullet. Cost effective no?

I have had a family member killed so i guess that influences my take on it but even if my uncle was still alive i more than likeley would still support it.

then there is a chance an innocent person maybe killed but there was a study that showed that a half of 1 percent of people on death row are innocent. and i find our system really messed up that some murderers are given chances to "redeem" themselves (i dont find that possible at all) and they go and murder another person, so it woulda been a heck of a lot easier to kill them and be done with it.

but if it is murder in self defense then i have no problem with it.

So i am FOR it.

I love the quote "Kill them and have God sort em out"

Thanks for the input Seph. oO I appreciate it. Sorry about your uncle I can understand your opinion.
But it's so weird that death penalties cost so much more :/ Like you said, one bullet needed and the case is over.
"Nobody should be killed by the state". Why the heck not? There are plenty of people who'd like to kill a sun of a [insert naughty word] like binladin. Less problems in society. Even crime would decrease I think, people would be warned for the consequences.

Everyone has a reason for what they do. Just because the standard laws are not to kill, rape, steal etc., doesn't mean they're right or fair in everyone's eyes. People need to be understood, not punished.

And do we even know what death is? Sure, people can imagine what happens when our bodies break down, but nobody can prove or disprove any theory; nobody knows. Perhaps we're sending criminals on to a better life. Perhaps not. Opinions on the death penalty are highly influenced by beliefs of death. Personally, I think it most likely that there is not an afterlife, and nobody, however horrendous their crime, deserves to have their life ended in such a way.

For those that believe crimes such as murder should be punished with death; as long as it is impossible to understand the mysteries of death, you'll never know whether you have rewarded, punished or had little effect on the person in question.

I also find it disgusting that many of those backing the death penalty would call themselves "Christians" and deny supporting "eye-for-eye" justice.

As long as they're sure that they did the crime, they should die, otherwise be beaten badly. No matter how big or small the crime. You just shouldn't commit the crime. The reason I say this is because it should give you the insentive not to do a crime... I mean you shouldn't be doing the crime in the first place, so I really wouldn't mind... I mean as long as you aren't doing anything bad you won't get hurt. I mean it's just something people shouldn't do. The only reason they do it is because the punishment is light and they are willing to risk it, but if they're risking their life, they KNOW they are so if they get caught that IS their fault.

That doesn't make sense. I mean we all are going to die, so if we get rid of them we won't have to deal with them at all. I mean if we're sending them off to a good place, then why aren't we all killing ourselves? It just doesn't make sense. We're sending them away permanently so we don't have to worry about murderers and other bad people. I mean good or bad ahead of us, we all die sooner or later anyways.

Dude this thread is as old has hell...



I have mixed feelings about the death penalty. I won't mention who it is but a loved one of mine was almost taken to the e-chair. He didn't really deserve what he did but he deserved something worse than a decade in jail. That's all I have to say...

Huh? Seducing isn't a crime.

1. To lead away from duty, accepted principles, or proper conduct. See synonyms at lure.
2. To induce to engage in sex.
3.
a)To entice or beguile into a desired state or position.
b)To win over; attract.
