I wouldn't say you're dangerous to society simply on the basis of that but I do think it's a disgraceful, hypocritical and groundless point of view to have.

Death penalty won't solve a problem, it would actually give a relief for a criminal. Better to send them to coal mines to work for the rest of their life.

The moral fibre of society is gone. Extreme measures are needed.

There is nothing wrong with you whatsoever with wanting evil murderers, child sex offenders, rapists, drug lords, terrorists and monsters in our society dead so they can not be released to cause more havoc and your well earned taxes can instead be spent on well needed NHS surgical procedures.

The left wingers would have you believe these monsters have rights(even though they took the rights from their victims)- a strange concept I have never really understood

No, I believe in very rare instances where reform is not possible (eg psychopaths, serial killers etc), death penalty is the only logical solution. I think I've argued in favour of it when I was in high school too!

For the rest, jail + rehabilitation + training programs, like in Scandinavian countries.

More economically viable than free bed and board for life.

Hardly. If we agree they deserve to die, then they should die. We gain nothing from unnecessary torture.

If you look at the countries that employ the death penalty with a fair justice system, the economic viability is not really existent.

I'll be the first one to say I think you're dangerous. I say that because your beliefs will likely influence the beliefs of others, and beliefs of these type stifle empathy - something I think is very dangerous.

Actually this is incorrect, assuming that we allow the (very expensive) appeals processes to provide the additional degree of certainty modern societies like ours require of themselves before carrying out an execution.

I don't trust the justice system in this country as it is, never mind us having the death penalty and it being wrongly used when a much lesser sentence could have been applied, whereas people who should have been sentenced to death would probably get a much lesser sentence. :mad:

Justice is a stupid concept that is utterly bypassed regardless of our actions. It is a fancy notion that has been corrupted by powerful men to fit their agendas, and justice through torture is a particularly nasty example.

Bring back hanging with immediate effect.

The murderers of Lee Rigby would be a start.

Then bring back hard labour in prisons.
