im for the death penalty, if you take a life you should also have yours taken form you. [/color]
That logic doesn't work, that would also imply that whoever killed the "murderer" would also be killed. Or what if the convicted turned out to be innocent? what then?
Yes. People say have a heart, well I do. I also have something called logic. What some people fail to realize is that the more prisoners, the more money the state has to spend. They should just kill people that have committed violent crimes, most of them are psychopaths that wouldn't give two *CENSORED* about what happens to themselves or others. Psychopaths and sociopaths that don't feel emotion shouldn't be felt sorry for. Simple as that.
In the current system, the death penalty costs more than life in prison.
Want to make it cheaper? that will only cause more innocent people to be executed.
Oh, and don't forget how many gang members are in prison, and how many gangs are prison based.
That is a problem with prisons, not the lack of punishment.
Morally - Wrong In your opinion
Culturally - Barbaric In your opinion
Economically - NOT economical You base this on the way it's done in the USA
Effectively - Ineffective In your opinion
I know you aren't the smartest, but you do realize the US is the only developed country where it costs so much? in any developed country(read : Europa, japan, South-korea, Australia/NZ) it would cost that much. It exists to prevent the innocent from being killed, lower it below the cost of life in prison and you're putting a price-tag on human lives(the innocent included).
Key is to have a prison system that does not make things worse, but makes things better. So in a society, to lower crime rates if education and standard of living are important factors, then why not spend more money on that, than on killing people in jails?
You're contradicting yourself. It definitely costs less money to inject someone with a chemical than to feed them for 40 years,provide housing, and spend money on guards. Also rehabilitation only worked for people without life sentences. People who spend their whole life in jail do not contribute. If they don't have a chance to be reinstated in society they should not just be a drain on resources.
You forgot about all the other costs of a death penalty?
Like the trail for example?
So Ducky. You're saying that if someone kills people, he shouldn't be killed himself?
Guess what? Prison isn't even bad to people like that. Or regular people. I read a story where a guy stayed in prison 14 years
just to avoid paying alimony. http://www.judicialaccountability.org/a ... /7year.htm
I'm just saying. Why worry about taking the moral high ground? Rapists and murderers certainly don't, and they could care less what happens to themselves or others. Give sympathy to those who deserve it. Most of those people are sociopaths and psychopaths that take advantage of people and hurt them, and they would still do that before, during, and after prison. I don't care if it's "similar to nazi eugenics", because those type of people are mentally deficient and don't deserve to live.
Why risk killing the innocent for a chance at feeling a fake sense of "justice".
