    Default Thoughts on the death penalty?

    I read that the US and Japan are the only developed countries that still use the death penalty. Though, the death penalty doesn't seem to lessen murders at all in the US. Several people that are sentenced to death stay on death row for years, and die before they are even put to death. Do you think the death penalty is a good idea or not?

    bad idea,

    has more do to with vengeance and political bullshit than justice or rehabilitation. lock them in a place where they can have no human contact and stick a tray of bread and water through a distribution hole.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    i dont think people should be murdered like that.......i think if some1 wants some1 killed, they need to do it themselves then face the consiqunces of that...

    either way, its not right to take a human life in the first place

    So the Uk doesn't have the death penalty? I read that the murder rates there are a lot less than the US.

    It does seem a bit hipocritcal to take life for taking life. Im against it, but I cant say for sure that if some fuck killed my family or raped my daughter that I would feel the same way. But if they castrated them and then dropped them off on an island with all the other fucks like them, I think that would do.

    its not even that great of a deterant, most criminals who do the stuff to warrant the death penalty dont care about dieing anyway.

    like someone said its just hypocritical that the government can commit homocide and we cant.
