I don't think the death penalty should be allowed at all.Its totally barbaric and could send out confusing messages to the public.Is it ok to kill if you belive the person deserves it?
I saw a drama on TV about a woman who let off a bomb,killing a loada people because she felt it was important to her country.She wasn't a bad person.Although that is kiinda off topic lol.
If you want the person to suffer,surely a life sentance is prison is more painful than death.And if you are killing someone because they killed someone else what makes you better than the killer?
I'm guessing most pedophile and mass murderers don't just do it because they are evil people.They have severe sycological problems.
And what if the person in question has an innocent family?Do they deserve to suffer like the family of the person who died?
I cannot really belive its still legal in some countrys.
There is a theory which states that if ever
anybody discovers exactly what the Universe
is for and why it is here, it will instantly
disappear and be replaced by something
even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
