Oh boy . First thing in my day and off we go on a very emotional and hot issue ! Ok, here's my input . I do believe that each case has its own unique set of circumstances and that there is no " one size fits all" answer! Some murders are crimes of passion, some are in defense of self or family,others by accident or otherwise unintentional , others are committed by someone absolutely mentally unbalanced. Having said that, I also do believe that some murders are committed by people that have no second thought or remorse, they kill just because of opportunity , or because they are bored , or just plain brutal. This is the type of crime that I personally believe warrants use of the death penalty ! As long as there is appropriate physical evidence and the appeals process has been followed and the conviction upheld, then sentence should be carried out. I do not think all cases fall in this category , but for those that do , I have no problem with the death penalty .
People who commit murder should not receive death penalties. This is because some of them are usually not in their rightful senses when they commit these murders and if they are maybe some force in their lives is behind it. They should be given a chance to change by either imprisoning them for life; death penalties only increase more deaths and crime rates.
If people commit murder with sense they should get death penalties.It will reduce crime of the society.We have to consider the situation.If people commit murder in case of their life safety or in case of any valid reason then there is a chance to reduce penalty.
I truly think it should be taken on a case by case basis. Someone who beats a two year old to death, should see the business end of a lethal injection. If someone is protecting themselves or their families lives, or if somebody accidentally causes a death, or is charged with involuntary man slaughter, they should not face the same as a rapist or a child killer.

No, First, there are too many flaws within the legal system, which allow innocent individuals to be on the receiving end of the death penalty. Unfortunately, in many cases they are proven to be victims themselves. Secondly, society itself would be reflecting the same poor judgement of those who actually committed the real crime. Third, not all individuals should be sentenced to a Life of incarceration. Only those individuals responsible for the most heinous crimes should be judged severely. Safe Journey
