    Capital Punishment

    Do you support it, condone it, or don't care about it?

    I fully and wholly support the idea.

    Re: Capital Punishment

    I support it. Some people are of no further use to society, and it is counter-productive to house them with people we might have a chance of salvaging.

    Re: Capital Punishment

    I support capital punishment because I believe the punishment should be proportional to the crime committed. Some people in this world just need to be ****ed up. A person who intentionally murders someone should be killed; that's justice. Plus keeping them alive would just be a drain on the state's resources. If they deserve to die, they should die. I see this issue in pretty clear black-and-white terms, I really don't understand what all the fuss is about.

    Niether do I. I want to see if this thread can settle why people don't like the idea.

    Re: Capital Punishment

    I believe that it is wrong to kill. Full stop. Period.

    I notice that in the poll you don't offer anyone the option of flat out disagreeing with CapPun. Why's that?

    I don't hold to any particular notions of justice. The world's unfair all over.

    Wrong to kill? Even if it returning the favour to serial killers?

    Re: Capital Punishment

    How many serial killers are there, really? Not enough to justify making policy decisions on their behalf. Most of them aren't ever sentenced to death anyway, because they are ill.

    It was an example and I didn't mean for that to be basis of what Capital Punishment is to be built on.
