Should there be a death penalty in the uk?
Should there be a death penalty in the uk for some instances of murder?
yes, and child rape,..............
eye for an eye,
only untill proven 100% guilty with evidence
I can completely understand your points of view but mine is that "an eye for an eye" as a way of thinking is lowering yourself to their level which then seems hypocritical to me.
I think they should serve a REAL sentence, not a soft one. I also believe that the death penalty is an easier way out for a prisoner. I think most would rather top themselves than serve a LIFE (if life meant life) behind bars without homecomforts, just basics.
u know they took the 'eye for an eye' quite literally in iran, a woman was blinded by an acid attack from a man whom she refused serveral times to marry. the court then ruled that he have acid dropped into his eyes as well. if he took something away from her, he should suffer the same fate. i think that was great. he got of lucky as poor woman had alot of her face deformed...
I voted against. I think it is completely ignorant to even consider in this day and age.
Crimes should be punished harder, none of these "playcentre/hotel" jails and proper sentences. Life should mean life etc.
It's my personal opinion and not an argument, a discussion.
If without a question of a doubt and what I mean by that is the killer was caught red handed or via super clear video tape or his/her DNA was to make him/her the murderer then YES, but I want this person to do a period of time in prison without knowledge of when he would be put to death, just to punish him more by giving him time to grow true fear. I don't believe rape or even child rape should mean the death penality unless it was a repeat offender and then Yes....if not a repeat offender don't protect him from the other prisoners by having him do his time alone, put him in with the general population. The child he /she raped had no protection why should the criminal. This crime should get nothing less then true life in prison, untill death. I think there should be a way to make these people pay their own way while inside, chain gangs, making license plates, some kind of industry where they can contribute for their own costs of care. Don't pay them a penny for their work either like they get now, imagine!!! Make the sentences MUCH stiffer and no parole...then see if the crime rate drops some.
