I Am For Death Penalty

Yep, you read that right. I am for death penalty. I am only for death penalty though only in cases where clear and unmistakable guilt is established and proven for heinous crimes. Here are the reasons why I am for it:

First, justice carries the idea of equality. It is not justice if the punishment of a crime is not equal to the crime itself. Life for life.

You forfeited someone's life, then you should pay it with your own life. You have taken away the person's right to live, then why should you be allowed to have the right to live?

Second, death penalty deters the commission of crimes. It lessens it. Yes, death penalty does indeed lessen crimes if done consistently. Stats in Arab nations confirm this.

Yes, to death penalty!

I am also for death penalties for heinous crimes like murder in cold blood, rape of minor children and anything that affects us as a society or human beings. Today people show more compassion for the criminal and how he is being treated than for the victim. The crime is never bad enough but justice is deemed harsh. A young girl gets gang raped on a bus in a capital city (Delhi bus gang rape case) . She dies in the most horrendous of ways and her rapists and murderers are alive. Where is justice in that??

I agree with you. I am for the death penalty for those who murder and take innocent life. Those killers don't deserve to live.
