I think about that question for years, I think rapists should get a death penalty bc it's worse then a murder in my eyes, if u murder someone it's over but if u **** someone u take his soul and violate their body, I know someone who has been r-p by a men when he was young and always said that death would have been so much better...

I think every case is different and yes some ppl should die, esp ppl who does awful things to babies, kids, elders or helplessness

I used to support the death penalty, but as I get older, it's just much easier to see that apart from the primeval instincts that make us revengeful and leave us willing to retribute after someone has done us wrong, there's nothing that justifies it. Ergo, the death penalty is irrational.

The cost of a thorough judiciary process and all the expenses connected with it are significantly higher than the potential gain of killing the perpetrator.

If the costs of the judiciary process are decreased to a minimum, the proportion of innocent people executed rises to ridiculous levels. There's plenty of examples of that in countries like China or Russia. Just to give you an example - 6 people were executed for the crimes of a single mass murderer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrei_Chikatilo.

It makes much more sense to keep mass murderers etc. imprisoned until they die and to release all first-time offenders after a limited amount of time (including murderers), because the reoffending rate for murderers is very low.

Cold killers should be forced to watch executions and reality shows of Kardashian & Paris Hilton.

Life's already short for law-abiders
(in a world where families, friends, teachers, mental/drug rehab institutions,
police & law makers can't care less about people who never wanted extremely painful lives).
The media is full of greedy people who let copycat crimes occur by criminal infamy coverage.
Victims' families want to enjoy the killers' deaths; they don't care if these nothing-losers had fame.
No one cares about trial cost/the public's money unless jackasses bragged about sleeping with children because
they loved religion
or claimed to be clueless of killing.

It's too late to prevent the murders.
I can't understand why people have forced relationships with many shady idiots
just to hear how great their lives/beliefs are, involving psychos, violent friendships & fake spouses.
Most victims get involved with disturbed people. Others trust security guards in public so they are executed in unsafe places.

As faulty as the system is in countries like the USA, it's still several times better than the barbaric medieval ways of some Muslim countries.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

in israel we have death penalty and it was used just once, when the Mossad kidnapped Eichmann, put him on trial and he was convicted.

You're obviously not counting the 100+ lynches/executions/assassinations carried out by Mossad without any sort of trial.

Death Penalty is stupid. Easy way out for killers, who'd probably commit suicide if they could, and take cowardly way out. I say lock them up in a dark, damp, secluded room and let them rot mentally as they will eventually think about what they have done

I believe most societies use CP in order to deter future crimes as opposed to revenge.

Except it doesn't work as a deterrent. In fact, most data suggests that CP-retaining societies are more violent than the one's not using CP.

I can only count the confirmed killings, can I?

In any case, it's one of the many things that makes Israel an unloved regime, to say the least. And not only among Islamic fundamentalists, Arab nationalists or neo-Nazis. But that's a different story.

100% against it. No human has the right to end another life.

A read of John Grisham's novel The Confession should be enough to convince any doubters of how abhorrent the death penalty is.
