Proponents of the death penalty believe that it deters crime and is economically more efficient than life imprisonment . They also believe that "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" honors the victim and consoles the grieving families knowing that the perpetrator will never be able to commit the heinous act again.

Opponents of the death penalty argue that it does not deter crime, and unjustifiably gives the government the power to take human life. It also perpetuates racism by disproportionally targeting people of color, who cannot afford good attorneys. They also believe that life sentences are more severe and less expensive than death sentences.

What say you?

i support the death penalty.
however, until it can be applied fairly across the board i don't think it should be used.

I am against the death penalty. Death is most final. We know that the criminal justice system has been unfair and skewed against us more times than enough. They can't bring back the lives of the innocent.


"...Since the reinstatement of the modern death penalty, 87 people have been freed from death row because they were later proven innocent. That is a demonstrated error rate of 1 innocent person for every 7 persons executed. When the consequences are life and death, we need to demand the same standard for our system of justice as we would for our airlines... It is a central pillar of our criminal justice system that it is better that many guilty people go free than that one innocent should suffer... Let us reflect to ensure that we are being just. Let us pause to be certain we do not kill a single innocent person. This is really not too much to ask for a civilized society."

We all have rules that we live by. Folks who KNOW said rules and still choose to break them... deserves the punishment that fits the crime.
