Do You Support The Death Penalty?

Is it thou shalt not kill or an eye for an eye?

There's the very serious issue of false conviction, and the lesser issue of cost of apprals. Absent those, yes. Some people need to not exist anymore. They forfeited their right to life.

Appeals? I'm not sure that is a lesser issue given that it costs more to execute someone that it does to keep them in prison for life. I guess from a moral standpoint, but I always figured you as someone to whom money comes first.

Well, now you are playing God, and I don't like that. Life isn't a gift handed out by you so neither should it be taken away by you. The statement above really reveals more about your personal narcissism than anything else. You feel qualified to judge whether other people are entitled to life which, when you think about it, really just makes you a psychopath. Wouldn't you agree?

Side: No

That's because you see your own ad hominem attack before you see anything I've written.

No, I'm not a judge in a death penalty State. If I was, I would be qualified to make such judgements.

Great response.

They didn't forfeit their right to anyone. They just don't have it anymore. Is this the start of a rabbit hole? If so, I'll probably be banned before it goes very far.

Side: Yes

I will agree to it.

Side: Yes

No because current execution methods constitute cruel and unusual punishment. I would not want to die that why, therefore even the guilty should not have to die that way. Let he who is perfect, you know?

i do not recognize the authority of governments, so i certainly don't support people acting under its auspices killing people.
