It's curious that you didn't address the core of my point. But let's assume for argument's sake that a murderer does reoffend upon release - you argument is that we need the death penalty to get rid of these people so as to protect future victims. Your position is also that you would still support this system even if it results in the death of one innocent man. If you are interested in protecting innocent people, which is of course a worthwhile aim, what about the one innocent person that is put to death by the state for a crime he never committed?

Also, just because you don't hear of sub incidents in the media doesn't mean that it doesn't happen. But seriously, would you seriously expect to hear of such cases in china? Because you know, the Chinese media is free and not state controlled or anything.

True.They are state-controlled and lie all the time.

But the media I mentioned isn't necessarily the official media as they are far from free.Here you have many other ways to know what is happening around without them.
