Death Penalty - Debate me219

Kreate9d 10h

I'm all for it. If someone does something so heinous that they're elected to be put to death, then they deserve it, and I even see that as being lenient, because they're putting them out of what should be a lifetime of misery.

Obviously I don't support innocent people receiving it cmon
it's extremely hard to make sure every person who goes to jail is guilty. death shouldn't come into it unless it can always be proven 100% beyond doubt

Anyway, page 11 reminder that the US Justice System having the power to kill whoever they deem guilty after a history of being wrong on 1 out of every 25 death penalty cases is terrifying and is why it shouldn’t be more widely used.
Imagine thinking the United States government has the ability to carry out, fairly, the entire justice system's process up to the death penalty even though arrest/detainment (step one of the process) of petty crimes such as allegedly writing a bad check end up in racially-motivated police murder

I don't see anything about the United States in the OP or the poll question

I don’t see how that changes either of our answers. He asked what we thought of the Death Penalty and we both answered the question using what we have the most knowledge on which is our own countries blatant failures at implementing it.

It's relevant to most others and myself, so I would say it matters
jail is already inhumane, killing somebody is next level. im against it.

Fair, and fair.

Since there's no country mentioned in the OP or poll question, I think we should consider approaching it from a place of philosophy as well--if you trusted your government, would your answer change?

Perfectly moral agents aren't infallible.
No, it wouldn't. I don't really believe in retribution, in at least this extreme example of crime. I care more about the betterment of society. The death penalty is not an effective deterrent and it's expensive. Also, it doesn't set a good example that we, as a people, have the ability and opportunity to murder someone while also preaching anti-murder.

The possibility of wrongful convictions means that the state will murder people. /thread.
Should death penalty be legal?
