When is capital punishment is justified?

29 posts in this topic

I don't believe the justice system should be punitive. I believe its purpose should be to prevent crime. If someone murders someone and is likely to do it again, they should be kept away from society by whatever means necessary -- and least expensive -- whether that is lifetime imprisonment or death.

Very good post. I agree.

British justice is far different from the U.S.A, life imprisonment in U.K. is 25 years or there abouts with time off for good behavior, life in U.S.A is life (maybe without parole), depending on whether the crime is premeditated,so we are debating different issues.

What happens if you kill someone accidently,there are no witnesses,but you will leave some D.N.A. at the scene,so do you turn yourself in,or not..You are a murderer by accident,you didnt mean to do it,but its on your concience forever,even if the other person meant to murder you.

All murderers should pay for their crime, but how do you define it ?.

I dont think that this question can be answered by any of us, but its an interesting subject.

I dont think death can be justified. But what else can we do with them besides lock them up forever?

If someone kills just to kill for the thill then yes. Serial killers yes. Murder is murder. A life for a life an eye for an eye. The punishment must fit the crime. Or do we let a person sit on death role and spent 60,000 a year to house cloth,feed medical and dental care. Hang them all
