I see it highly hypocritical to use the death penalty. Rather to condemn a fellow human of death, we should have death games. Such us the roman Colosseum, let the murderous kill the murderous.

It's like you wouldn't show grief or sadness if outlaws would get brutally killed. They are pure bastards if committed to a death sentence but it would be inhuman. We humans progressed since then, and going back to the old rules is a big turn back. Killing someone for someone's entertainment. - Poisoning would be a better solution, and no mass murder is required. Unless another income scam on the news or the government. - Tournaments + police brutality + false imprisonment because of benefit it brings to the government. D you really want more bullshit to corrupt the future?

Life is corrupt, we might as well prosper from such. Is it not hypocritical for us to kill someone on the act of them doing the very same? It seems more just to have themselves killed from a fellow "outlaw." You say, "inhuman." That can't be something to discuss through ridding a life. No matter how you look at it, they die from someones hands. It's going to be inhumane no matter what, why not prosper from their death? Also i grief no one who has veered towards the path of weakness.

The death penalty should be banned throughout the world. There is no need for a government to execute its own people.

1 in 4 people executed in Florida turn out to be innocent afterwards. Lets then turn this in to 1 in 3 innocents who are killed, and will never be proven innocent.

Besides, two wrongs don't make a right, it is said. ( However, two negatives do make a positive..)

Still, it's highly hypocritical.. But I've said this enough times. Got a problem with what I've said? Dispute me.

Because killing a murderer is giving them the easy way out. Instead in the US and UK we should make prisons worse and force murderers to spend the rest of there lives there in misery.

And there are times when you know for sure that some one is a murderer if there is proof but a lot of the time there isn't complete proof so innocent people in the past have been executed.

I am opposed to the Death Penalty. I favor life imprisonment as the alternative.

Nope! In fact as DNA evidence gets better and better... that's all the more reason for just shooting some murdering cunt-bag in da head.

If there was no justifiable reason for the murder then I don't care who kills the bastard... the state or a civilian.

Doubtfully it would get banned in a republic, sure in democracy since murder is bad. But where else could you find a more legal way kill? - And the killing must be as a punishment to the worst criminals, with as less pain as possible and efficiency. There need to be many sides supported and many other perspectives in order to make taking someone's life ok. And it should be banned for obvious reasons.

I think the death penalty is one of the several punishment in the law system, we shouldn't consider it like something insane, and moreover it's normal in some countries nowadays.

The reason why I'm for death penalty is because some people can be so dangerous fir the society, like serial murderer or maniac, so that they must be punished by this method.

Second reason is that prisoners, who committed very cruel crimes and have a life term punishment, shouldn't be provided by government. I think, it may be established like selfish and unfair decision, but for government it really affects economical conditions.

In some countries this law bring a very effective results. People see examples of this kind of punishment, therefore firstly they think "should I commit this, or should I steal something or kill somebody". In this countries the statistics of the crimes is much lower than in the US. Just imagine: a very dangerous serial killer, prisoner served his term and then got freedom. He will kill or rape again. If he did it for once, he will do it again.
