I do not believe in the death penalty. Why should we choose who loves and dies? If someone is up for the death penalty because they killed someone then it doesn't make sense to me to keep the killing going. Keep them in prison for the rest of their lives, but just as they didn't have the right to take a life noether does a hurt of their peers.

Thank you, I think execution is just another way to say murder.

Not for just any crime

I think anyone possesses the ability to make up for their wrongs and change. I don't think it should be up to us who is allowed to live.

Those who avoid the death penalty are usually sent to a maximum security prison with bad living conditions, so if that happened to me, I would choose death penalty. Just my opinion I don't want to start a fight with you.

Yes, I can see the logic to your thinking. I respect your opinion.

I think it's only okay if the criminal actually caused someone to die or if they raped someone. If they murdered someone, then I think it's okay. If they stole a bunch of diamonds, no death penalty, but give them a lot of time in jail and community service or something.

If a person raped a child or something, they deserve to die.

Depends on all what the person did to get themselves in jail. If it was rape, murder, or something along those lines..then.. I think that they should get the death penalty..

I think that I agree, although I'm not too sure. What kind of message are we giving by killing someone for killing? And yet, theoretically, I would probably rather die than spend a lifetime in prison.

Sorry if I was seemingly upset. This hit a personal spot, since one of my family is in jail for bad things.
I just think that they won't change. A second chance will lead them back in jail.

I think that they can, and that they should at least be given a second chance. They're human beings too, even if they've done something very wrong.

I just think that if someone is in jail for murder or rape, who wants the pile of scum on the earth anyhow? You can't change who they are. They can't "get better".

Not at all! That gives them no chance to turn their life around! They could become good, but you give them no chance to!

I don't think the penalty is fine. Just because someone murders or does something bad doesn't give you the right to commit a crime back. Death row and the death penalty are very sad things. Some people might turn there lives around but they don't get much of a chance to. I think it is against gods will.he doesn't like that someone would do that in the first place. I think the death penalty is a very bad thing.
