Texas is frightening when it comes to the death penalty. I think it's more like : Guilty till proven innocent down there. They also don't want to spend taxes feeding these guys whilst they are in prison for life.

People will always be divided on this. Some are eye for an eye and some would like to see the person suffer for the rest of his life confined in a small cell. I am for life in prison as it seems to be a very effective deterrent against murder when applied well (In Europe for example when compared to USA, Iran, China etc, though without guns available it's normal that we don't have so many murders committed) In France 6 people on life in Prison petitioned to get executed as life in prison is the worst possible punishment according to them. Tells a lot about which is the most effective form of punishment imo.

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

Look at the list of countries with death penalty vs countries without it. Enough said.

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

In an ideal world, I support the death penalty. But because many innocent people are still convicted, it's difficult to be truly in favor of it. I'd rather have people get away with "lighter" sentences for murder than an innocent person be put to death.

But if we could be sure of someone's guilt, I definitely support the death penalty. I don't really see it as a punishment, though, more of a guarantee that they'll never be able to hurt anyone again.

so why does texas has the highest number of death penalties? as far as i know they've nearly 50% of all death penalties in the history of the USA. this state also has the highest number of republican voters.

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

with a total of 1,097 executions texas alone has 403. the USA is the only industrial nation with a death penalty.

so much for Texas is frightening when it comes to the death penalty. worst state in the USA. typical republican home soil.

The last time I checked (which I think was yesterday), we still have the presumption of innocence in Texas.

Bilbo, you're an embarrassment not only to Germans, but also hobbits.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

It's sad that this could have been a fun debate thread and instead we get one person trying to bring down American, because you know that's the only country with the death penalty. Actually though some states execute a large number of people at least it's over something that is acutally a crime against humanity unlike being gay. But yeah, America is evil. Bad Americans. Shame on you, and those Bush cones in Texas.

Like J said there are holes and innocent people have died. Personally I think the death penality should be reserved for repeat offenders. Serial killers. People already in prisons who kill other prisoners. That kind of thing.

It's a whole big moral thing. I was against the death penalty till I studied criminals.

The only catch is that many criminals who commit sever crimes (the ones you'd get death penalty for) have sociopathic traits and don't feel guilty about what they do. It's not suffering or rotting away it's a paid home away from the rest of the world.

A lot of criminals are also repeat offenders because life in jail is so much better for them in than out. So I don't know if that's really a deterrent for people who just don't care, and know that if they do something bad they'll still be cared for and housed. Their biggest issue will be gangs and even then the prisoners can be separated if they feel they are in real danger.

Not when you are black or hispanic. There are many examples of this happening in Texas.

Don't worry, whites are executed too for their crimes. You people are not as privileged as you may think.

Life is empty and meaningless. It is in emptiness that we create possibilities for extraordinary results
