Have not had a serious debate on here in a while so lets get all JUDGE JUDY ns**t.....

Here in Ireland we have Capital Punishment (well in spirit) but only for the killing of a members of the police force so I take it to include government officals etc. I have never seen this enforced in my life time. Thankfully there are not too many police killed in my country YET, but drug gangs are blowing the heads of each other with an order of big macs n fries its that regular.

My point is, are you for or against capital punishment?

I am for it 100% no questions asked..we deffo need a deterent for people who do not value life. Life is so so cheap in this day & age of drugs and crime. We need to have a zero tolerence with scum bags. In an ideal world it would be kept solely for paedophilia and rapists...but that would never be enforced. This maybe a sore or touchy subject for some people but it is an issue that I feel needs to be universal across the globe.

I know there are alot of people out there and even on here that would argue that "One life for another" is not the way to go. But that is bullshit.....Anyone who KNOWINGLY takes a life for a few hunders bucks/euro/yen or whatever should face death by 1000 small cuts....resussatated and cut again then left to bleed.

Thats just my 2 cents.

If that person has been seen killing another person, then yes they should suffer the
death penalty. If that person has been accused of killing, but no hard evidence, then
you can't justify death penalty. Pedo's they should be f**kin castrated. No questions.

Crimes against innocent children should have the FULL SEVERITY of the law...no exceptions.

To be honest, if I was rightly convicted of murder (I did it, and knew that I did it), I would far rather be executed than live a life in prison. Execution seems like the easy way out.

capital punishment should always be an option for the most heinous crimes... I do wish they would use firing squads or hanging instead of lethal injection though.

I dont understand the logic behind this statement Mr.B, can you explain why you feel like this....

McFly,

Thats a very good point that Death might be too good for them....but alot of the times people commit these crimes knowing that 5-10 yrs prision term is "EASY" and alot of the times gangsta's are "MADE" when they get out.....

I wasn't talking about a 10yr. sentence vs. the death penalty -- I was talking about life in prison without the possibility of parole vs. the death penalty.

I'm all for capital punishment for people who deserve it. I don't want to pay my tax money to keep a bunch of criminals alive for decades. Just imagine how the economy would be if we had far less prisons and criminals in this country.

If you didn't put 'IF' in there, it would have been a scary ass comment.

I've heard that the cost of decades of appeals from death-row inmates ends up costing more than keeping them locked up. I don't know if that's true or not, but it's certainly plausible.

You could, say, drastically reduce the number of appeals allowed, but what if they really didn't do it? I'd rather let criminals go (a type II error) than execute an innocent person (a type I error).

If an innocent person is locked up, and evidence comes to light which exonerates them, they can be released from prison. If an innocent person is executed and later exonerated, it's too late to do anything other than apologize to the family.

I find it a little off putting that people are more concerned about the "COST" of keeping these people locked up.

As for that story of the little girl....jesus!!!! My stomach is churning with the taughts of it....that is the f**k that should die by 1000 cuts and then brought back to life again! And repeated for the rest of his life.

TBH this only really gets complicated when you try to think morally about it.....but maybe the death penalty is TOO GOOD for some people.

Well frankly I am concerned about the cost, why would I give my hard earned money to keep people alive who shouldn't be alive? If I'm not the one paying taxes sure. I'm sure my feelings are shared with many tax-payers in this country.

Because the judicial system isn't always right.

I've seen many cases of people being sent to jail and then 30 years later they get released because they weren't guilty in the first place.

It's better to at least let those people live, even though it will most likely ruin their life, than kill all, including potentially innocent people.

Well maybe they shouldn't use tax-payers money to do that then.

They wouldn't if it was communism, but western nations oppose communism for the benefit of the few in the political/corporate "elite." So we have to pay our tax money for everything, including the salaries of people who have ridiculus amounts of money anyways.

I'd rather spend my tax dollars imprisoning and feeding a murderer than spend it executing somebody who may be innocent.

I think a more fitting punishment would be for him to be stripped naked, dipped in honey, and staked down over a large nest of fire ants... but i guess your way would work too.
