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 think giving a murderer the death penalty is weird because its like

"You murdered someone and murder is wrong so let's murder you to show what happens when you murder someone!!!!"

But its still killing someone to show that killing is wrong. Personally, I feel it would be better to do product testing on prisoners who are on death's row, seeing that animals don't have uses for hair dye and toothpaste.

The death penalty, in my opinion, should only be used if the accused is 100% guilty, with proven evidence and the crime is serious enough.
One murder, possibly out of a result of a psychotic episode? Punishment IS in order, but I don't think it should be death for just that single murder (ESPECIALLY if it was the result of an accident/psychotic episode). 
Serial killers who derive pleasure from their killings? They should be executed. Painlessly, but executed.

A rapist should be locked up; they generally find their ends at the hands of their other inmates anyway.
A paedophile should be executed.

I so agree on the jail part! Like they get meals, a place to sleep, clothes, and yes we all know it's not the BEST, but it's SOMETHING! No most of those people in there don't deserve anything! Plus they are on OUR tax money so yeah kill them all! (Well only the really bad ones, killers, rapist, molesters) also so using this!

I understand your point. I do not completely disagree. However, when bringing back the death penalty, there is always a large risk involved, i.e. the person is actually innocent and was wrongly accused.

And unfortunately, as far as I'm aware, the only place where rapists get a death penalty is New Hampshire. Everywhere else, where there is a death penalty, it's mainly a murder or muder-related crime.

I 100% agree with everything in your commentary, ARTic-Weather


to others who don't agree, prison these days is cushy (at least in the USA). If you don't agree, just look at
the homeless people who actually GO AND DO CRIMES for a home, 3 meals, shelter, tv, showers, gyms, and more.
It's like getting rewarded for doing a crime. there is more i could add, but ARTic-Weather has already said most of it.

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..

The death penalty is far from perfect. Because states in the USA that have the death penalty have higher homicide rates so it does nothing to solve crime (www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/deter….

Also that for an eye-for-an-eye mentality is flawed and it says the wrong message to society. By taking the criminal's life we are stooping to the criminal's level.

None of what you just said makes any sense.

So, CRIMINALS can take someones life, and do whatever, but if we take their lives,
it makes US the bad guys? Excuse me, but we are not the ones who rape, beat, kill, shoot and stab innocent people.
They are, so it only makes sense to deliver justice. By letting them live,
we show weakness. We show that they can do whatever they want, and get away with it.
Your argument is flawed. Then again, I would not expect a Brony to know anything.

So judging by your logic me being a brony means that I'm stupid. Wow that's one heck of an assumption.

''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.

If someone killed someone else, it's important not to let them get away with it. If we continue to let people get away with murder, we'll have more murderers on our hands.

the death penalty is still a murder. it´s nothing but revenge. and revenge is not equally to justice.

 the only good solution would be to isolate him from the society, so that he/she can´t hurt anyone anymore and he/she still gets a chance, to think about his/her behaviour (i´m not saying that everyone is taking this chance) as for the victim (if he/she is still alive), it has to be comforted as much as possible, obviously.

also, if it is ment to frighten the other potential murderers, so that they won´t commit their crimes, then it´s not working. the criminals are not thinking about the possible punishment, they are thinking about, how they would get away with it.

i maybe respect other people´s opinions, but it stops, when human lives are depending on them.

If the penalty does not match the crime, the crime will increase. Call me harsh, when a person has (in their right mind) intentionally killed or attempted to kill another person, then they have thrown away their own life in my opinion.

If you want murders to increase, that's your business.
