Is it though? Murder and executions aren't the same thing. Neither are murder and killing, and there's very little condemnation of killing. People aren't punished for killing in self-defence (or if they're a cop in some countries...). There's certainly no condemnation towards those whose job it is to kill (soldiers), if anything they are glorified rather than condemned.

Except both execution and murder share that they are deliberate. The reason killing in self defense isn´t viewed upon as being as bad is because you have no choice and doesn´t do it delibirately. I would say that executing a person is the equivalent of murder.

What about other deliberate forms of killing? eg. a cop shooting a criminal (in an incident where it's justified of course ).

Death is to good for some people. Mass murderers would sometime just suicide after the crime.

Put them in a cell, give them no sun light, no interaction with anyone, and let them lose track of time.



Yes I support it. If you murder people or rape people I'd prefer live in a world you are not in.

If somebody murdered or raped my daughter then there's nothing more i'd want than to see than that person dead, not only that Id want to see them die painfully. I wouldn't feel uneasy or any remorse. So yes I support it because other fathers/mothers would more than likely feel the same no matter what other people unconnected with the crime think. Obviously the authorities have to be 100% certain that the person did the serious crime.

And there´s a reason judgement on another person shouldn´t be made by people without judicial education in their background. A justice system must be void of personal feelings.

Well, it´s never justified unless it´s in self defence or in the act of protecting another person. I actually think most police officers in Sweden (where I´m from) don´t even carry a weapon =).

For people that can't ammend and if they can't sustain their own time in prison then they shall die.

No



Hands chopped off for stealing and being stoned to death for committing adultery are "fair" punishments for crimes committed in Saudi Arabia.



Yes, i do support it, for murders and such.



No.
Innocent people are executed all the time.
Think about that. A guy gets convicted for something he's never done. Spends years on death row. Then he gets strapped to a stretcher, feels the needle with the poison being injected into his arm, and knows that his life will now end.

Imagine if that was you.
If that happened ONCE because of a policy then it would be unacceptable. And this is something that happens regularly in countries with the death penalty. There are organizations in the US that frees innocent people from the death penalty all the time.

So fuck no on the death penalty. Not only is it not ethically defensible if the justice system was 100% accurate, but when you keep convicting innocent people, that seals the deal.
