 I am on my lunch break at work and we were discussing the dealth penalty. My co worker believes that everyone deserves a second chance to be rehabilitated and be productive members of society. I believe that any person who commits a crime that is worth being put to death, should be put to death. Of course there are "what if he is innocent" and such.

I am talking about without a reasonable doubt. That there was absolute no doubt that this person killed another human being or beings, raped or molested a child, and other cases like these. Without a doubt meaning, that there are witnesses, a confession, evidence that this person did in fact do something to end another persons, raped or molested a child or other such cases.

These fools can not be rehabilitated. Or at least I do not believe they can be. Personally people like that are a waste of air and a waste of a human being.

*This shouldnt be a debate about how it is cheaper to house a criminal for life, than for them to be put to death* Although I know it is cheaper that way, it is still stupid that they get to breath oxygen and have a place to sleep and to be able to eat and drink and have healthcare.

Just curious as to other ladies opinion.

I am for it.  I don't care if they can be rehabilitated or not.  They shouldn't have a chance to be.  The people they murdered/molested/raped don't get a chance to go back and change it all.  They live with it, if they survived the crime against them.

I don't believe that people can be rehabilitated nor do I believe they should have that chance, but I don't believe we should kill them. It's not going to be murder on my hands because THEY did wrong.

I am 100% for it! People like James Holmes, need to be put to death!

I am for it! Example:  How is it fair for a mother to lose her child but the person who killed that child "gets a second chance to be rehabilitated & be productive members of society"?  The person killed doesn't get a second chance.  And as for the "what if he is innocent", after you have been sentenced you get a certain amount of chances to appeal your case and prove your innocence.  They don't give you the death penalty & then send you to the chair that same day.

Im against it. They should all be put on a deserted island with just enough food and water to live and then they can fend for themselves

Have you seen our prisons? They have it good in there! Cable, internet, education, they have it too good.
