    Why do some people here seem to believe that two wrongs make a right? Life is sacred, therefore you shouldn't take it away deliberately. By killing a criminal you become one yourself.
    But capital punishment would keep life sacred if for example the person given capital punishment had taken life himself, and therefore violating his right to life

    There's been several threads about this before but I will answer the question.

    1. No
    2. No
    3. None.

    Remember that Scot on death row in the US? So many people advocate capital punishment, but we'll see if they change their view if it's them in the dock whether they are guilty or not...

    Keep life sacred... by killing people. Yes that's logical. :rolleyes:

    how do you know this? we aint executed people in the UK for donkeys years...

    and whats this tripe about appeals? guilty - bang - end of story.
    Which is exactly what would have happened to:

    1) The Birmingham Six
    2) The Guilford Four

    And more recently Sally Clarke.
    And what would your own career choice be: executioner?
