Re: Death sentence
Quite disturbing to see that the poll is swinging in favour of the death penalty. I am 100% against it.
The main reason I'm against it is that a society cannot put people to death for crimes, no matter how severe, and then expect people to adhere to rules in the outside world. Absolute justice should always be implemented when possible and putting someone to death is not justice, it reeks far more of revenge/an eye for an eye.
Also, there have been multiple cases of wrongful execution. How can you punish someone so finally without ever truly having burden of proof?
The death penalty is absolutely not the way to deal with transgressors, no matter how disgusting or brutal their crimes.
