  • No, the purpose of the death penalty is supposed to be to scare other criminals into not committing crimes, which does not work. The ONLY time I think it should ever even be considered is with some criminal mastermind who repeatedly escapes from jail and kills people.

  • I do believe in it. But mostly for the people who rape and molest people

  • YES!! I say give them one appeal because mistakes do get made. But if they loose the appeal set the date and do it... 2 weeks of less. I also say we should go back to public hangings! The threat of death becomes much more real if you've seen it once or twice and you'll be more likely to think about committing a crime before you commit it if you are actually seeing what those before you have had to pay...

  • Absolutely. Especially for repeat offenders of the sexual nature. There's not a lot of going back from being a pedophile.
