VM327 - Motion on Capital Punishment, The Hon. Blue Meltwater MPThis House commends the legislature of Nebraska on its recent vote to abolish the death penalty. This House recognises that capital punishment has no place in the modern world.

Furthermore, this House calls upon the remaining 31 US states in which capital punishment is legal, in addition to 86 countries around the world, to heed Nebraska's example and end this violation of human rights.

Despite how poorly written this is, I couldn't vote against it.

I abstain because in principle the death penalty could be seen as reasonable for the most serious of crimes; however even the small percentage of people who are wrongfully convicted is enough to make it unreasonable to have a death penalty.

Since when is the domestic law of another country any of our business? And what purpose would this serve other than antagonising one of our greatest allies? There's no chance this would produce any tangible results. Moralising nonsense.

We have no right to be getting involved with the legal affairs of other countries

Nay
Its a internal affair, as long as the trial is fair we should not interfere.

If however this motion was to look at the flaws in US judicial system and its application on citizens of other countries I would support that

But the US electorate is with in its rights to vote for or against capital punishment
