Personally, I say sometimes. There is one crime which I believe should receive an automatic death penalty: rape. Murder, most of the time, but there are reasons for murder which might justify only jail time instead of death penalty, like an unfaithful husband/wife or something like that.

I voted for sometimes: there are a lot of innocents people who were killed for nothing and I am for giving another chance for some criminals (for example if they were young when they killed etc..)
But I am for killing some criminals : pedophils like Marc Dutroux who rapped,tortured and let starved to death more of 10 childrens,and who will keep on killing if they escape from jail!

No..killing is useless. And on top of that innocent people get executed from time to time.

I don't support the death penalty, but not because of the reason given in the poll.

I don't have enough faith in the justice system to trust them not to screw up and kill the wrong person every now and then. I would rather have my tax dollars go to housing these criminals for life than have them used to occasionally kill an innocent person.

Think of all the money we would save, you would only be killing a few innocent people, be worth it

I just made it extremely clear that I don't believe it is worth it. Did you miss that part?

That's the argument they used in the post-bellum American South when thousands of innocent African American men were sentenced to death (or should I say murdered) for rape and other alleged crimes , merely for political means.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
