Honestly I don't mind dying if I need to pay for my vile crimes
I don't mean you dying, I mean you being the executioner. You say you want the death penalty but would you carry out the death penalty on someone else?

I admit that being an executioner is not easy and it takes guts to kill a human but personally I don't want to become an executioner because....it's just a scary job.

#CakeOrDeath
You know if you are against the death penalty you can just say it instead of making those phrases which don't make sense when I read them, so I didn't get cyber bullied and would want the death penalty anyway for WHO? The person who didn't cyber bully me? Makes no sense

A time in which murderers, terrorists and traitors to the realm were treated in a just way. A short drop and a sudden stop. It is unlikely that perpetrators of these heinous crimes will be adequately rehabilitated and therefore we should remove them from society.

The first part is poor English and doesn't make sense. The second part is both conjectural and twisted. What reason do you have to believe what you assert? How do you define 'adequate rehabilitation'? What happens if people are wrongly convicted?

Do you truly believe those who have reached the point in which they will commit acts of terrorism or treason can be rehabilitated? They cannot be changed and if they are kept in prison, they'll just continue to cost the taxpayer even more money especially if they require any medical attention in the future. Capital punishment should be available to those who have committed murder with express malice aforethought, terrorism and treason. And in order for a death penalty to be given murder, the jury should be made to give a unanimous verdict of guilty beyond reasonable doubt. Nowadays, it is rare that the wrong people are convicted and even if it were the casr, there should be a month between sentencing and execution where the death penalty can be appealed.

Only for serial killers in my opinion. Where there is 100% solid proof that they have killed more than one person.
Is there ever 100% proof though given that our justice system hangs on the opinion of 12 members of our society? And do countries that have the death penalty enjoy a crime free society?

I believe Germany has a good track record of rehabilitating terrorists who then go on to provide valuable intelligence.

But do you really believe that by killing terrorists you are going to stop further terrorist attacks? Surely you simply validate the cause of the terrorist aim? I note that Iraq reinstated capital punishment and has continued to bear a very high level of terrorist attacks.

Maybe, just maybe one feeds into the other?

You do know in the US it costs a lot more taxpayer money for capital punishment than life imprisonment mostly due to a more rigorous trial.

...................the solution to what ????????

For emotional closure, and to help the grieving process, yes, it's the only way to get closure.

Bring it back.

Enough's enough.

So many stupid people in one thread... The state is no better than the perpetrators of these heinous crimes if it uses the death penalty. It's been shown that the capital punishment isn't an effective deterrent, so what purpose does it really serve? It's also a common misconception that the death penalty is cheaper than life imprisonment- a quick google search will tell you that.

Do you proponents of the death penalty believe that perpetrators of evil crimes are incapable of reform? Smh
Whatever purpose is does serve is a hundred times better than the current prison system where murderers and rapists are practically worshipped by lesser criminals.

Are you serious? Rapists often have to be kept on different wings because they get targeted by other inmates and beaten up... I can tell you've done your research.

It is the solution becuase otherwise there is nothing to deter people from committing major crimes as a lot of criminals like prison.

Look at the data, it doesn't act as a significant deterrent.
