There are no plans to debate capital punishment in Parliament and I do not think that the death penalty will be brought back in this country ...ever:thumbsup:

That's because we have a loud minority of misguided interfering do-gooders who would rather see a serial murderer, paedophile or rapist walk free to do it again than be hanged.

 

Personally, I value the rights of the victims more than the criminals - but then I'm an old-fashioned right-winger - heaven forbid that we should protect the innocents from the violent dregs of society. That must be a fascist view!

I would love to see the death penalty in this country if the justice system was fool proof, but its not, there can never be a 100% certainty that the right decision has been made as to someones guilt unfirtunately, otherwise I would be all for it.

Fair comment, sometimes they do get it wrong... More's the pity... Rven if they don't bring back Capital punishment though, I would still like to see life MEAN life for Murderers etc... Not just send them down for 10 years and let them out in 5 on Parole or whatever.

There we go again - don't like the view posted so you make troll accusations.

 

Can't you expand you mind, just a tiny bit, and take on the concept that some people's views might differ greatly from yours?

Should we reintroduce capital punishment?

Short answer - no.

Why not?

a) It's immoral

b) Innocent people will be exucuted

c) It has no deterrent effect

d) It debases the value of human life

I agree with b and partially agree with c, disagree with the rest.

I see it like this Spyro ....if we are saying that it's wrong to kill someone -which is why murder is a crime - I don't see how it can be any less wrong just because the state says it's OK.

 

The guy who kills a guy because he's been messing with his wife, for example, might feel completely justified in hacking his love rival to death with a sword...but it doesn't make it right.

 

Like wise if we have capital punishment, and hang the guy who killed the guy...it's just a larger group of people doing what they think is Ok.

But is isn't. It's wrong to kill.
