Are you for or against the death penalty?

Postby masahiro » Tue Nov 22, 2005 1:40 am

In Japan, death penalty is admitted under the law. I agree with it. Almost all of prisoners condemned to death had comitted the murder. I can never forgive the homicide. The murderer mustn't be forgiven. The murderer should make atonement for his sins with his life for a victim.


My friend objet to the death penalty.
He said , " I think that a criminal can't atone for a crime by death.
It is true atonement that a criminal reflect on what he commited a crime.
So I object to the death penalty "

What do you think ?

Totally against it. If you kill a killer, you become a killer, too. That's my opinion.

But I also think that, if someone killed a member of my family, or a friend, or someone I love, I would have no mercy and would want that person dead. I think it's a matter of subjectivity.

But, in general, I am against death penalty. Let them rot in jail.

well i think the best way of handle with killers it's put them working to the community, making the work that nobody wanna do, instead of kill them as they had done, and as they wouldn't earn any money we would have a better society with things more chepear, like houses or hospitals and this kind of stuff's.

Against it!! No one has the right to take away other's life, even a killer. I believe God will judge us himself one day.

solution

The solution is : Don't kill the murderer and also he must stay all his life in jail. Now a lot of country don't want of the death penalty. It is an evolution.

Well that's the government's fault. They should never let them go.

then it will cost a lot of money to give them food and bed.
If I'm a very poor guy and don't have a warm home, then I would rather kill somebody in order to have a safe cell in the jail then sleeping outside cold and unsafe.

The question isn't : What is cheapest? to kill or to jail all a life. I think that you are an human being with a sensibility and a mind, isn't it? Do you pay taxes a lot?
