There should be an international convention to at least have more humane death sentences, most African countries still hang people, and also firing squad in Indonesia.
Depending on how you define (in)humane, hanging and firing squad are actually pretty humane of fine right.

Sounds less gruesome...Anyway just best to ban the death sentence worldwide. It isn't as effective as people would like it to be.
That would suggest that a not insignificant number of people manage to survive, not everybody's Rasputin

These things are hard to compare like with like. The US would have a higher homicide rate due to relaxed gun laws regardless of the death penalty.
Yes, regardless so its better for governments to find root causes and fix them rather than use the death penalty as justification for fixing the problem.

No more than watching an ISIS video.

At any rate, i'm not against the idea of drawing out such filth. I never knew i could despise something so much until ISIS turned up.
Yes they're ruthless and I can't understand anyone who justify their ideals.

ISIS videos can be seen as that.

The US punishes the killing of people by killing a person. Right.

I'd rather be beheaded than hanged. Hanging leaves the body in a somewhat undignified state, what with the emptying of the bowels and the eyes bulging out of their sockets.

Some people deserve to be dead, e.g. Michael Adebelajo, Michael Adebowale and Ian Huntley, but then again a life sentence of white torture could be a better choice.

Haha I wasn't saying it was my ideal way to go, just comparing one outdated punishment to another! Although let's be honest, getting guillotined is pretty retro. Indiest way to go

Why on earth do you have a picture of Locke as your avatar??? Please, stop. You're one of the main Green dudes. You're against his ideology. He's a right winger.

He was a social liberal, he sought to maximize autonomy, freedom of choice, emphasizing political freedom, voluntary association and the primacy of individual judgement.

You have no idea what my ideology is, let's get that straight.

I'm sure many people don't deserve their lives, I'm not so sure that the state should be killing them.

There is always a debate to be had over a state's role but I think white treatment for the duration of a normal life sentence would be widely accepted as moral.

I also think that's wrong - it's tantamount to torture.

I think it is one step down from solitary confinement but a suitable step up from the prisons we have now where multi-child murderers are sent.
