EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

EU announced a day against death penalty yesterday. Only Poland was against this day among all Europeans countries. What can be said here? I am not follower of death penalty. It is problem very open to question.
But this day in Europe is only testimony on hypocrisy of European officials. Before this ,,great,, day - fight in the name of all hard criminals, NATO coalition ( European officials : Italian, Danish, German, of course Polish and many others NATO members sent troops there to decimate people)killed in Afghanistan 170 people. The only day, who they should announce, it should be a day without genocide and day of observance of human rights. And maybe this hypocrisy will get forward and we will respect only rights of genocides and criminals because many actual officials indentify theirselves with them.

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

I won't be celebrating. I'm not sure if I'm for or against the death penalty but I won't be celebrating/acknowledging this day. I'd rather remember people who died during the slave trade or Holocaust victims or war victims than murderers.

I Nadal. Serena Williams. Venus Williams

Like: Haas. Tsonga. Kiefer. Bartoli. Mirza. Zheng. Bolleli. Safina. Mauresmo. Monfils. Jie. Jamie Murray.


Hate: Djokovic. Lubjicic. Sharapova. Andy Murray. Dementieva. Soderling.

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

I don't think that some ppl deserve to die but i think that some ppl don't deserve to live...especially cause those ppl live off of the taxes you pay so why the heck would i pay for a mass murderer's daily needs?

A day against death sentence gives me the impression like we're honoring the death sentenced criminals which is a slap in the face to all the families that were affected by them. And i would be in no way "celebrating" or even acknowledging this day as a fight against something. I will fight against poverty, prejudice, racism, disease etc. but being humane to ppl that don't have a humane bone in their bodies i shall not!

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

very true what post no2 say!

first remember the victims and eliminate cruel and unfair punishments in some country like in some far east countries, China or so

but don't say you are against that a real murderer dies and then push money into war to help kill innocent people

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!

Whoever thought up an ''anti death penalty day'' should be shot.

Re: EU announced a day against death sentence yesterday

I think Death Penally could be used here to scare some sense into gangs and yobs. Gang warfare is gaining popularity among youngsters at high rate. Worst of all by Life sentence they mean you can be free after 20+ years Either full life sentence or back to hanging.

There an only be One Nadal

I am a supporter of the death penalty like other nations.

I'm against death penalty, but there's too much emotions about this day and Poland's objection

Why pick?
Just because on a particular day the EU decides to pay attention to the death penalty, that doesn't mean that people can't remember victims of war/slave trade/holocaust/...at the same time. There's nothing wrong with drawing attention to various problems (small and big), is there?

I don't particularly feel sorry when somebody who has committed a terrible murder gets the death penalty but it's not always that clear-cut, is it? To give two examples:
In Iran, people have received the death penalty (public hanging) just for being gay.
In Nigeria, a woman received the death penalty (public stoning) for adultery
With these two examples in mind, I do think that it's worth thinking about the death penalty. If you decide to stop and think about the death penalty for a moment, it's not to honor criminals.

I always knew you are not a real Swiss from your political views. You probably don't even live in Switzerland.
