Death Penalty stamp by ARTic-Weather Death Penalty stamp by ARTic-Weather
Before you try and change my opinion, just don't. I'm very closed minded on this and believe very strongly we need it back in this, and many other countries.

''But it's against human rights!''
Human Rights are now more in favour of the criminal. When a person rapes or Murders someone, they've infringed on THEIR rights. Why should we continue to protect theirs and allow them to play god?

''But wouldn't you rather have them waste their life in prison?''
PFFT have them get three square meals a day with free gym, cable TV and games consoles when the families have to deal with horror? No thanks. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.

''People can change!''
Once a serial killer/rapist, always a serial killer/rapist. They're messed up in the head if they think that's ok, so if you give them a second chance, they'll do it again. YOU CANNOT CHANGE THESE PEOPLE.

I agree, to the hilt.  but here's the thing, not many criminals put on death row actually get executed.  just bringing it back isn't enough, if the politicians still have leeway to prevent it.

I would agree with you in the cases where it's absolutely certain that the prosecutor cannot change and become less of a threat... I can't think of any reason to let such a person live once it's been established that (s)he can never be cured or rehabilitated..

" I'm very closed minded on this "
you should never be closed minded about anything.. and judging from your comments it doesn't seem that you really are... you seem to be genuinely interested in other peoples opinions.. however the arguments in your description are very poorly put together.. there are commenters here that have made far better arguments for death penalty.. maybe you could use some of them..?

it would be helpful if you specified for what crime and whom exactly you think a death penalty would be appropriate..

I'm also curious to know how much research you've put into this opinion.. how versed are you in psychology, psychopathy and particularly the mental disorders that can drive people to murder..? on what do you base the assumption that they cannot change..?

What about an otherwise sane person killing your ex or his/her new SO in a jealous rage..? is death penalty the best solution..?

How big a percentage of homicides being committed today do you estimate warrants death penalty..? what exactly IS the most common type of homicide..?

how do you view execution itself..? what do you feel about it emotionally..? would you like to see such an execution for yourself..? and if you did, how do you think you'd react..?

and finally: do you think one can justifiable form an opinion about death penalty without being able to answer questions like these..?

again: for really insane people who are beyond treatment, I have no problem with death penalty.. I DO however believe (or at least hope) those cases are very rare..

Murders and rapists are people from bad material, only thing what can change them is fire. Atoms will be still atoms, and energy will transforme to another energy. And soul doesn't exist.

''But USA is a perfect country''
HELL NO. Not even close. You're the opposite to perfect. In this case for example, countries like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Botswana, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Japan, North Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Somalia, Syria, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam and Yemen have used this penalty the past couple of 10 years, and of course the USA.

Most of these countries aren't even close democratic. All these countries disrespect human rights. Yes. USA is perfect. Fucking open your eyes idiots -.- USA is still living in the cold war. Move on and let these people live. No one deserves to die. Also don't forget that racism DOES exist in USA and it's 1000 times bigger than in Sweden where I live. Black people would get the death penalty for robbing a bank with a gun not shooting or killing anyone, but a white person would get away with the same crime for nothing. Yes. Perfect country. Shut your ugly mouths. 

''This will stop murders and other things such as shootings at schools''
No. This is just a stupid way of getting out your anger on the murderer. The thing that will stop murderers is to get rid of the law of that every person in the US is allowed to have and carry around a weapon. Death penalty only makes the government a murderer too.

Sick patriotic people. what the actual fuck. See you in hell.
