Yes and no. If someone does a horrific crime and only get a few years that's not fair is it now. But someone could be accused of not doing a crime but they get to be killed for being innocent? The world's messed up...

i think we should have the death penalty back, but there must be conclusive evidence for people to have the death penalty, and only for the most serioius crimes

No!

'Lets execute people to show them that killing people is wrong!'

No one holds the right to take the life of another.

yeah exactly the same as the murderers did so HA.

of course people hold the right to.. its what u call justice. you know the thing that means punishment.  why should murderers get to take other peoples life away and then get a low prison sentence, and statistics show that people who were in prison reoffend, so this also shows that the punishment of prison isnt good enough. so this means that people are murdering AGAIN! so lets give them the death penalty and they cant do it again

No!!! " an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" !

yeah and so do murderers, they think they can get away with it, and guess what so they are. the world is blind to what they are doing

DNA isn't perfect , there is no sure fire way of telling if someone really committed the crime, and There is also no Humane way of killing someone even lethal injection can go wrong

i dont really care if its humane to be honest, because im sure the way the murderer killed its victim wasnt humane

Im not saying that should get a short sentence, but we don't always arrest the right guy. Why take the chance of killing an innocent man?

Its not worth it.

Posted: 18-04-12 19:45 by Rayanne :)

thats why i said CONCLUSIVE evidence

No one has the right to take the life of another.

If you kill someone you should have to live with the guilt of it.

im sorry i probably get to into this but this is something i really believe shouldn't exist ! The death penelty doesn't stop people committing murders as most crimes are crimes of passion so the murder would not have time to think about it and i believe Rayannes right surely if you kill someone the guilt would be worse than death

hey! debatings an important part of forming opinions on matters :P

Posted: 18-04-12 19:58 by Rayanne :)

it does stop people commiting crimes because they wont commit them if they are dead

Posted: 18-04-12 19:58 by Gabby Tracey

it doesnt stop people committing crimes though, if it did people wouldnt still be getting murdered.

Posted: 18-04-12 20:06 by Rayanne :)

yeah but them murderers arent dead whereas others are

Posted: 18-04-12 20:06 by Gabby Tracey

No, i just think it is wrong to kill someone because they've done something wrong, whats that teach us? that they way to solve problems is through violance.

^ thats soo true.

Posted: 18-04-12 20:59 by Rayanne :)

I believe in everything Rebecca and Rayanne have said is true. There are no circumstances in which the death penalty is acceptable!

Posted: 19-04-12 12:29 by Katy

im not sure, yes for ppl who comit terrible crimes like murdering but then again everyone deserves a second chance but you see people who do it again and again and again they should be punished more than just couple of years in prison. on the other hand an innocent person might get killed. nowdays we see ppl getting life sentences yet there is no evidence to suggest that they are guilty. torture is another thing i dont agree with because you wont stop torturing someone untill you hear from them what you want to hear not what the truth is and yet we see this taking place all over the world

i think that the deth penalty should be brought back for the most serious crimes

Posted: 19-04-12 16:13 by Gabby Tracey

My natural instinct is to say yes, bring it back but there's always the issue of a wrongly convicted innocent person being killed which is obviously horrific. It's a tough one...

Posted: 22-04-12 22:20 by Former Member

I totally agree!!

Also, if you kill a murderer, doesn't that make you a muderer?? No one likes a hypocrite. And if you kill a muderer, you be just as bad as the murderer.

So no, I don't think we should bring back the death penalty.
