Yeah, depends on the situation, only internet kids don't support it. They get all their morals from the liberal circle jerk on the internet.

try to get a restore death penalty bill in Canadian parliament where there's a conservative majority and see how the vote will go, then you'll know if it's just the kids on the internet that are against it.

I give a shit about it because it directly contradicts your absolutely moronic assertion that only online kids (who are implied to follow some sort of herd liberal morality) oppose it.

Canada is fully of irrelvant sissies pretending like they matter in any form or fashion other than being in the shadow of America. Nobody cares about them, they have no influence in the world and no one cares what they do or say.

I've never been comfortable with the death penalty. I feel like we lower ourselves to the level of the one we are prosecuting. It doesn't help that there are innocent people that have been put to death in the past. I'm going to go the fiscally conservative route, and say that I do not.

Serraph105

I don't think we lowers ourselves by putting someone to death. If so, do we not lower ourselves when administering others punishments? If not, why?

I do agree about the problem that there are innocent people being put to death. To execute someone means we already have them in our power. They can do no more to hurt us; we've won. It's too great a risk to then kill them, I think.

I think you're onto something but you should take it a bit further. People don't 'deserve' to suffer, no matter what they do. There was never a moment in either of our lives where we 'chose' to not be psychopathic killers. You and I are merely lucky that we didn't have the right (or wrong) biological priors and life experiences that led us to become psychopathic killers. The idea that people 'deserve' to suffer, regardless of what they've done, is based on an intuitive desire for retribution and revenge. It has no rational basis and is based wholly on malevolent values. If we value life and the well-being of others then our justice system should be based around preventing suffering as best as possible and not inflicting more needless suffering on those who we've already successfully moved from potential victims. There simply is no rational reason to go in, after you have someone separated from society, and make them suffer more. The only reason that has been put forward was that it might set an example which might deter future potential criminals but studies have shown that punishment in the legal system beyond mere incarceration has nearly zero value as a deterrent.

Yep. It's not like anyone could possibly oppose the death penalty for his/her own reasons. They only do so because they're part of a circle-jerk.

I'm personally for it if the suspect is proven guilty of murder. Murderers are the lowest form of scum on this planet. I honestly cannot see why someone would think that people who take lives deserves to live themselves.

Not the U.S. version as it costs far to much, if you have to have it, it should occur the next morning at dawn after sentence, being on death row for years with endless appeals is a mess,

I'm not sure why you would bother trying to reason with someone whose first and only reaction to anything that proves him wrong is basically "you suck so I'm still right". I think people would have figured out that if someone rants about "liberals" in half his posts as though one of them killed his dog or something they should probably be ignored and left to crawl out of their little bubbles of ignorance on their own initiative.

There is no reason for death penalty.
There is no actual support for death penalty.
It costs more money, it is completely inhumane and it doesn't gain us anything. It also doesn't allow us to correct for errors.
In hands of a government who can throw anyone they want into torture and even extradites people nilliwilly, death penalty is the last thing you want to see accepted in their society.
The people who say they support it must be very blood thirsty. Maybe you should sign up for the légion étrangère if you want to see death so badly.

I probably would support the death penalty if it was applied to the elite. Politicians, wallstreet executives, high ranking church officials, the wealthy and other people in positions of power who abuse their power. It's easy to execute a petty street thug or the poor. If you want to impress me, prove how much you care about justice by going after the people at the top of the food chain.

As for the topic.

I would prefer we use torture as an extreme form of punishment instead of death.

You get nothing with death but by making the criminal suffer in excruciating agony for the rest of their life then you gain everything.
