Death penalty advocates are running out of defenses for the practice. It doesn't deter violent crime. Not all victims get closure from it. The "eye for an eye" principle doesn't take into account the many differences between ancient Hebrew tribal law and modern American law. It's not even cost-effective, nor is it applied justly.
So to answer your question, I don't think any state should have the death penalty.
I don't believe in capital punishment either. To me the only justification for violence is self-defense.
Since the death penalty is more expensive than locking someone up for the rest of their life and most sociologists agree that it is not an effective deterrent the only function capital punishment serves revenge and I don't think the government should be in the revenge business.
I don't believe in the death penalty, personally. I think that's it's a horrible way to bring about 'justice', if that's what it can even be considered. I consider it m urder, and I don't think that any person (including those who enforce laws) should be able to do it.
I do not agree with the death penalty. My main reason for it, is because of the families of the criminals. I do not see how seeing a family member mur dered is fair to those that didn't commit the crime.
I do believe the death penalty should be an option. However, I think it should stay up to the individual state on whether that option is available.
No, I don't believe in capital punishment. All life is precious and the taking of the life of the guilty will not bring back their victim.
no i think they shoouldnt.cuz if they kill them they will not know wat is suffer in jail or somewhere
