Should they bring back the possibilty of killing someone for their acts? Only in serious crime instances obviously.

No. I say leave that ridiculous punishment to america.

I think that it would only cause false conviction stories and plus a long time spent in jail is the best punishment, better than the death.

I don't agree with the death penalty. so No.

but it could be argued that some people strive for this 'long time spent in jail' for some food and shelter. They wouldn't be so ready to commit crimes if the consequences were more severe.

Surely the amount of people committing murder so as to gain a roof over their head is negligible? So we really don't need to change a lot of our criminal law to cover for them...

We weren't on about jail. We are on about the death penalty. Stick with it.

That is true.

But say I was planning on murdering my life long enemy, I'd be thinking, hmmm I mught not get caught but even if I do, I'll be facing a jail sentence which i'll only serve half of or less.

Compared to,

hmmm if i get caught, i'll be KILLED.

I know which one sounds scarier to me.

I don't agree with rape.

A 16year old boy having sex with a 15yo girl is classed as rape. Even if both concented (sp?)

No no no. It doesn't work as an example. The only lesson it teaches is that we're just as bad for condemning them to it, no one deserves to be punished with death.

Statutory rape technically. And I don't think that's what that user meant by rape.
