How does the "Death Penalty" appeal to your emotions?

Does the death penalty strike the very core of your moral and ethical views on this subject versus religion? Do you believe that death provides the solution? Would you rather have them implement life imprisonment rather than death penalty? Is there such a thing as a humane type of death penalty?

I'm sorry, I know one of the commandments is thou shall not kill, but I also believe in an eye for an eye. I mean here in the US there is so much overcrowding in the prisons and it is our tax money that is paying for these murders to live scott free for the rest of there lives. yes they doo not get to go beyond those prison walls but some of those prisons are better living then some people not in prison.

It sets fine with me, if they are 100% sure, not 99% sure, that the person convicted is the right person that did that crime.

I would say the deth panalty the the actual guilt of the case of murdar or any other serious crime or some treat to the society and human kind is most feasible with me... I am tottaly with the penalty and it is justified... I do not have any emotions for those. people commimting the crime.

those who committed serious crimes deserve capital punishment. that's al about it. we shud also consider the victim before defending the accused.

To keep good human beings happy, bad intentions of persons committing offences should be curbed. Unless a person fears, he will not control his emotions in committing offence. Hence I advocate for capital punishment. Just imagine killing the other for money, raping minors, killings elders for family partitions, and so many. All these can be brought under control only out of severe punishment by which others will get fear.

life imprisonment is better, at least they can have the many years left in their lives to waste away in prison and think about what they have done.

No it does not strike my core of anything. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. A person takes another human life for gain, monetary or other wise, deserves to have their life taken from them not have roof over their head, 3 meals a day, medical treatment at the tax payer expense. Some poor people striving to make ands meet don't have it as good as inmates.
