Do you agree on death penalty?
I know that penalty will somehow teach people to obey the law. But would you think that it is the right way?
I believe that the death penalty is actually a good deterrent for vicious crimes. People murder and kill today because they know that the worst-case scenario for them is life in prison (if found guilty). And even then, they usually get out of jail after 20-25 years for good behavior.
To me you can feel hatred to the depths of your bones for someone who has committed a horrendous crime against a loved one and wish them great sufferance and die. But still I would say, No, to the death penalty. It is not the answer.
To my way of thinking, if you say yes to the death penalty then you too become a murderer. I would think having a chance to tell the perpetrator face to face what you think and feel would be a good start to your revenge and healing. And then? You can only hope that either what was held dear and close to the perpetrator is taken away from them during their prison time. Or, they have to in some way pay back by having a role in relieving the suffering of another person while in prison or out in the community till they die of natural causes.

What are your views on the death penalty?While I do believe that some people should be put to death, the risk of sending an innocent person to death is too great. I think either the requirements for the death penalty should be higher or is should be banned. What do you think?
