    It should be eliminated completely.

    It does make sense. By exacting the highest price from a criminal, their life, we as a society are affirming that human life is the most valuable commodity that we have. That said, it is also self-defence to kill a murderer for it gives them zero opportunity to kill again.

    Completely wrong so your entire point is wrong... the guy was hanging from a small crane.

    I believe in death penalty. I believe the maximum prison sentence should not exceed 15 years.

    In USSR, most of those guilty of murder got 15 years, but if there were aggravating circumstances they were executed.

    Long incarceration is the worst torture.

    This is a question I have for the people who said eliminate the death penalty...


    What if the person sentenced to die murdered or rape and murdered your wife, daughter, mother, girlfriend, etc. Would you still be against it?

    For you people who think the death penalty is not a deterrent, it sure as hell deters the person who is executed because he or she will not be able to murder and rape again. they are deterred.

    This is exactly why our laws do not allow families of the victims to serve on jurys. Doh!

    By the way, when people talk about the death penalty as a "deterrent," they're talking about whether it deters other criminals from committing murder. Just FYI.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
    This group is the worst enemy of America and its freedoms. It includes, but is not limited to, all Trump supporters.
