No, I don't, not because it is 'inhumane' but because it is not really a bad punishment. A death, a free escape to a bad crime is too easy, I would prefer for the criminal to rot in prison for the rest of their life.
I do I believe if you wrongfully kill someone you deserve the same I do not agree with the way the penal system keeps these people on death row for a decade or more I think that after they are found guilty they should give the family of the victim the option to carry out the execution themselves If not then march them outside and shoot them That's what some countries do Sounds harsh but they shouldn't be allowed to sit in a cell and appeal over and over

I dot believe in the death penalty because sometimes the person may end up being innocent and you would have killed the wrong person. Also, I believe people need to sit in prison and thing about what they did.
Wow..a subject you do not want to discuss here but I will just say, for myself, I am against it. The reason is because, the pain I have from losing one from another would never be healed by destroying another soul. I believe in life without parole..
I often wonder why one kills, what kind of life that person lived..Was he/she abused... I have seen where people found God in prison, maybe that is what was missing in ones life..I don't have answers, just opinions. ..I have to trust that God will judge in the end...Just my feelings.. Take care..
i want to say yes, but i am going to say no. why? because i am thinking of the country i live in (america), and in order for a person to have the death penalty a lot has to go on. so not only to we have to pay for clothing, feeding, showering etc. we also now have to pay for the courts and travel. it takes many yrs, and those are just a few yrs short of how long the average prisoner lives.
but if we shorten the time it takes to get the right to kill them, then yeah sure, kill him :)
I do for certain heinous crimes. When an animal, such as a dog, kills a person they have to put it down. The animal will develop a taste for human blood and thereafter will always want to kill humans if given an opportunity. When a human being degrades to the same animalistic behavior he should also be destroyed. There is no hope for rehabilitation in cases such as these.
No because if someone murdered someone and is getting the death penalty then that means the government allowing that is committing murder it's like saying I know someone who killed another person so I kill that person that means I go to jail
Yes and no. Sometimes the people should really not be on our streets. But death is the easy way out. They need to suffer for what they did (I'm talking about extreme crimes). The inhumane crap is stupid because what they did was inhumane
before I used to be for death penalty. I even made a speech at school about it. but now I'm again it. because I think that killing to prove killing is wrong makes no sense. also people in the death penalty might even dye in jail appealing and going to court before they put them down. which is costing much more money to the country than just giving them a life sentence. did you know that the government spends more money on one inmate than for a children at school. (does not quite imply to the question. but it is an interesting fact)...
Nope. I don't see what it's supposed to do. I mean, the point in it is for justice. If the person dies, then they aren't punished. Regardless of what the believer thinks, there's no scientific evidence that they will be punished after death. With this being said, we can only assume that death would relieve them from their pain in prison. It wouldn't be punishing them and it wouldn't be doing anything. now, if they allowed t0rture as a punishment, then yes, but that's not constitutional.
No, what right does anybody have to cause the death of someone else? Too many families have been apologised to for the death of an innocent family member. Life is too precious to be in anybody's hands but your own.
Well depending in what the person did I guess. If that person did something wrong send them to prison if its not bad enough to kill. If they die and weren't saved then they will be punished in Hell. Forever! But some people kill and may have been saved but drifted from God. So it really depends I guess
Statistics show that, due to the appeals process, it costs more to execute a felon than confine him for life. The idea is to keep the convicted person out of society. Life without parole does that. Statistics also show that execution is not a deterrent to future crimes. The only positive thing that comes out of execution is the "good feeling" that some people get (while others feel shame that our country is siding with the attitudes of most of the under-developed and Islamic countries rather than with other westernized nations.)
Frodo raised the point in LOTR and Gandalf came up with the best argument for no death penalty I can recall. He said, "There are many who live who should have died; but some have died who should have lived. Are you wise enough to know the difference?"
Coming a lot closer to home there was the well-publicised case of the FBI framing a group of men for murder in order to protect an informant. They spent decades behind bars and were award more than $100 million in compensation. Had they been given the death penalty it would have been equivalent to a government-sanctioned murder.
I can't say I'm in favour of the death penalty. Too many people convicted of capital offences have subsequently been exonerated. But I am curious about how it was determined not to be deterrent. It does seem that it would cut down on repeat offenders, at least. Does anybody know the who, how & what of that research?
Murder rapist child molesters kidnappers death for them a good trade off one time is all it takes reduce the jails and prisons put one in each state there waiting time to be executed by line up and 7 sheriffs shooting a waiting time of 4 days the 4th day there gone and the the world is happy they are gone
I don't disagree with it, but I disagree with the humanity of it. In my opinion, the death should fit the crime. Some pedophile who raped and murdered an innocent girl doesn't deserve such a nice death as a lethal injection.
No, because I believe in reincarnation. Let murderers rot in jail so they won't come back so soon. Plus, there is the remote chance that DNA or some other new technology may prevent death of an innocent prisoner.

-I am a Christian and believe that God will decide our eternal fate in the next world after death. One may have killed, slaughtered, or assaulted another human being in the most unfit and displeasing manner. In the Newport Massacre, the shooter would have been sent on the death penalty if he didn't commit suicide in the end. Taking another life means that you have no point for your own. -In some cases, as murdering from the influence of drugs, disorders, or alcoholism, I believe that the killer deserves to have parole after a given number of years in prison. If it were a serial killer with a record of gun use and public assault, who has a matching DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) with several murder cases, then if that person wishes that there is no more use for their life or he confesses that he will only do more damage to society, then let him or her contribute in making Earth a more peaceful place. If he does wish to continue his life in absolute view of the law under authority, then let it be. -Either way, there is no right or wrong choice to every death penaly situation. - S. R.
