don't you get death penalty in china for speaking against the dictatorship?
But.. but.. but he's a HUMAN after all!
That's how it works nowadays.
Imo people like breivik and the new zealander should be dead. So mass murders should die. Maybe not even for one murder but for multiple
To die is short. To be in jail is long boring and in the case u mention, they don't get the cool places dude, these kind of jails are for minor troubles
Just put them in hunger games, entertainment for people and at least they can have fun, imagine BRENDON TERRAN THE RACIST BIGOT VS ANDERS BREVIK THE NAZI FIGHT!!!!!!
Death penalty is not good just because some innocent people can be executed due to mistakes made during the investigation.
better don't kill anyone than having the risk of killing the wrong/innocent one.
but i acutally agree with you.
ture and in China it's like a kind of mainstream to be against death penalty.
I think it’s important to have DP and it’s like nuclear weapon towards criminals
I do think in certain cases it would be for the best. As cruel as it sounds, why should we waste space and resources on someone who frankly is a terrible human being? It's also safer that way, as it won't be possible for them to ever escape. I do think it should only be done with the worst criminals though.
True, Kill 1 criminal, save many more innocents
cuz criminals would think twice b4 committing something that will get them killed
Death penalty is hardly punishment for mosts murderers, especially mass murderers and terrorists. Psycho serial killars probably deserve death penalty the most, but better lock them up in isolation and study them. Governments do not need to kill people as form punishment.
i don't think a death penalty accomplishes much as a crime deterrent unless it's a country's punishment for any crime more severe than shoplifting.
realistically having a death penalty available as a punishment for the worst criminals only has two benefits that I can think of:
A) as the death penalty is a contentious topic, politicians can identify where their constituents stand on the death penalty during one election cycle and align themselves with whichever position is held by the majority of constituents that feel strongly about it.
B) the death penalty can be used as a bargaining tool. if i remember correctly, a local serial killer gave up the locations of where he dumped the bodies of his victims in order to avoid the death penalty.
Prisons suck in France, so 30 years of prison, and knowing you don't have anything to do but to wait for death here is worst than death imo
I'd kill the person myself in that situation :)
you take a life u give up all your rights including right to life
price for everything you see?
also when people would think of killing they would know the cost
Death is not as hard a punishment as being locked in a small cell for 20-80 years.
People like Breivik should be able to be sentenced to death, yes.
But it's never going to happen, If we let ISIS-members who betrayed not only their country but their people go free, then death penalties are never going to be implemented.
Maybe only for mass murderers like that NZ guy. Otherwise it is just error-prone and violent
But that's ending a life...
Facts about death penalty.
55 countries allow it, but 34 of these haven´t used it in many years. Only European country to carry out a death penalty recently is Belarus (2010).
Many countries have special wartime laws, or make them during/after a war. Denmark forbade death penalty in 1930, but after WW2 46 danes were executed for murder and treason by special law. Many more (informants and profiteers) were executed by the resistance during the war. Same thing with most occupied countries.
5 countries executed more than 1000 in 2017: China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Pakistan … not a nice bunch to be compared to. USA only executed 23 that year.
Things that can lead to death penalty:
Murder, treason (sometimes very vaguely defined), drugs, corruption, homosexuality, witchcraft, saying bad things about the leader, theft, leaving your religion (Islam), infidelity, violence against your parents
(Sources: Danish homepage “Ethics.dk” and Amnesty International.)
I think the biggest problem with death penalty is, that it´s a slippery slope. Who should be killed? You start with mass murderers like Breivik, that’s easy. But where do you make the cut?
The second biggest problem is when courts are not independent, but are an extension of government. Suddenly political opponents are accused of corruption for millions. You see that all over Asia + Ucraine and Brazil.
Third problem is racial/sexual/ethnical bias in courts.
Fourth is public pressure, lynchmob mentality. Such a mob can be arranged against political opponents.
Finally: Death is final. Later DNA-tests has revealed, that some executed were innocents.
i dunno how death penalty is a punishment nowadays compared to lifelong prison sentence ...
Let them suffer in prison.
Taking someones life Just because he/she took someone elses life doesnt make the Situation better.
death penalty is more expensive than life in prison, killing somebody does no good, why do you think norway has the lowest crime rate?
Death penalty is fine when there is 0% doubt that the person committed the crime. But if there is even the slightest doubt, it should never be used.
The main problem with death penalty is the justice system, which is not perfect. When someone is jailed, there is a high chance he did it, but there are people in jail who are innocent. Would you kill innocent people for something they didn't do it? Thats something to think about.
Rapists and pedophiles should not get the death penalty. Killers should get the death penalty as simple as that. (If u want to know why rapists and pedophiles shouldn't get it, ask and ill answer.)
It depends on the severity of the crime
Life in prison is worse than death penalty...
Only thing more severe would be life in prison while beeing tortured every day but over years.
Same here happening in algeria criminals are living luxury in prisons
Only in extreme situations like serial killers etc and with good proof
death penality is shit i meam why should u wait 30 year for the fucking electric chair and why u font cet killed right away
and then you find out its the wrong person.... whoops :)
