I am against death penalty
I am against Death Penalty
This one needs a little more to explain my stance.
I am against the death penalty for one, and only one, reason. Unless you are 100% sure that the person you are convicting is guilty you should not impose the death penalty. And since we can not always be absolutely 100% sure we should not have the death penalty. However, I hope this situation changes sooner rather than later so that the people who do not deserve to live anymore for what they have done will be put to rest by using the death penalty. Until then I will be against the death penalty.
So while I do not object to the death penalty on 'all life is sacred' grounds, I do so on my belief that the justice system of sentencing should be about protecting the public and not vengeance. So locking them up forever meets that goal.
imo death penalty should apply to following cases/acts
any terrorist act that causes death
1st degree murder cases depending on special circumstances (da discretion)
i have thought long on adding pedophiles to that list.....and though i want to add them, i dont think society as a whole thinks the same way
pedophiles belong in a category of their own.....if i knew that it would work, i would castrate them all....and then release back into society...hoping the castration removed the impetus to harm children.....but not sure it would work....and if not 100% i wouldnt want to risk any other child to their debauchery
“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own sunshine.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
So I prefer to stick to the tangibles, like keeping society safe (which life in prision should accomplish), lack of certainty in all convictions (the innocent may be convicted), and costs.
My moral grounds against it come from my belief that the justice system should not be about vengeance but about protecting individual rights and society.
asking if their should be a death penalty.
