VGC Debate/Poll: The Death Penalty

Forums - General Discussion - VGC Debate/Poll: The Death Penalty

this is gonna work differently to the last thread (id done debates on abortion before) so in addition to wether youre pro or anti death penalty

Me:

Im Anti-Death Penalty, i think its wrong for the state to murder anyone, i also believe that there is no crime thats so bad that you can justify killing someone, to me the death penalty seems like double standards from the state, the death penalty is effectively saying that its not ok to kill someone if youre a civilian, but its ok for the state to kill you, its just wrong

I am Pro, I believe that there are some people that are so evil and maladjusted that they will never feel remorse for their actions while rotting in prison, and don't deserve to be given free food and living. I am perfectly fine with these people being killed, and I understand that the system can't be perfect, there will be mistakes, but I'm willing to live with those.



...

I am Pro. I believe if you kill someone, and there is irrefutable proof, then you deserve exactly what you dished out. Also, I don't believe that I should be paying for said killer to live in a jail cell and do nothing for the rest of their lives.

So pretty much the same as torillian




If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

I personally believe that there are some individuals who have repeatedly committed crimes that are so awful that they have demonstrated that there is no place in society for them anymore. My problem with the death penalty is more based on practicality than anything else ... While you can be pretty sure that someone is guilty of a particular crime, there have been so many high profile wrongful convictions that I would never want to trust someone's life to the justice system.

I don't believe that government should be depriving anyone of life. I also think that even if you believe government should be allowed to do so, all the problems with the system (innocent people being put on death row, not to mention the fact that we most likely have already killed someone who was innocent) should be enough for you to foreswear the death penalty at this time.

Tetris Party Friend Code = 116129046416 (ditto)

I am against it, It's not moral. Just like the decision the person in that position took.



^_^

I am pro, anyone who takes a human life deserves to have their taken away, they dont just hurt the victim, but the victim's freind and family have to live with this greif, and they deserve to know that whoever commited an act of evil is rotting in hell.



I am anti. I don't believe in a states right to take the lives of its citizens.



Pro.
Only for peadophiles + terrorists tho. and change how they kill them from injection/electric chair or whatever to publicly being sand blasted.
would lower crime rates for sure
