Should proven rapists get the death penalty?

I am undecided.

Yes.

No.

I'd say yes only in the case that they clearly will not be rehabilitated. Repeat rapists, ect, ect. Life in prison is generally a waste of money... Although often enough people do get released from prison after being proven innocent after many years.

Side: Yes.

I dont think the death penalty is justified no matter what the crime

Side: No.

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind” - Ghandi. We should forgive not avenge. It is super hypocritical. And if you want rapists to get bad treatment then putting them in prison is actually what you want especially with the example you brought up. Child rapists are treated very badly by the other inmates.

Side: No.

Punishing someone for deliberately and maliciously violating another person, with a high chance of ruining (or ending) their life, is hypocritical? Sure, we all make mistakes, but rape is not a mistake.

Side: Yes.

I don't understand your argument. How is it not hypocritical to tell people not to harm others and then harm them (and their family, mind you). And if you want them truely punished then put them in jail.

Side: No.

Death penalty? Are you daft? They should not even get punished. The blokes should get thanked by the woman, since rape is the most popular sex fantasy by women. What women feel bad about after getting raped is that they orgasmed. They feel guilty and project it in the rapist as anger. This bird I know back in Chelsea who was raped after a football match a couple years back says she can only come now when having sex with hubby if she fantasizes about the rape while he shags her. Or she makes him pretend he's raping her.

What comes out of killing someone? Nothing but sadness for them, their friends and family, even in the case of rape. Killing criminals sends a bad message to the public, especially to the youth. It shows that harming another life is justified. Rehabilitation is a much more reasonable and less harmful approach.

Side: No.
