Should we bring back the death penalty here in the UK?Watch
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?
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.
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?
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.
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
It is the solution becuase otherwise there is nothing to deter people from committing major crimes as a lot of criminals like prison.
