  1. No, what the government is doing is contradicting their own laws.
    To not kill someone, yet they are doing what the very person has done, kill another human being.
    It's like me trying to teach my kid to not smoke and I'm smoking, they won't take me seriously.

  2. i agree, not to mention innocent people who are given the death penalty without fair trial, or prisoners of conscience, etc…two wrongs don't make a right!

  4. I understand that execution is something we don't want to happen – but in the United States, execution is used for those who have committed extremely major crimes such as murder. I am not sure of the other countries, but in America that is a form of punishment and is very rarely executed. Those who have created horror have to feel the horror they have caused on intention. Those are my opinions about the death penalty ONLY in the United States.

  5. Murder has no place in the 21st century, yet it takes place by the dozens every day in the U.S. alone. As long as there are murders occurring(they will never stop), we the people reserve the right to the option of capital punishment.
