      What do people here think about the death penalty?

      Should we have capital punishment for murder?

      For paedophilia and rape?

      For other crimes?

      Or should we not have the death penalty at all?

      Should happen to those who did horrible crimes and are guilty 100 percent.

      Do we really need rapist and murders roaming the streets?

      But how do we know or got proof for it? That a persons guilty 100%? I mean, we can't prove it can we? A woman can cry rappist & not providing any proof or evidence for it & even blame the wrong guy for it so yeah.

      I am mixed on this. I feel that if it was brought into place it may prevent alot of crimes from happening but at the same time we also have the problem of people getting convicted who are innocent in which case sentencing them to death and realising it was a mistake later on nothing can be reversed. I think that if there was a sure way of proving that someone was guilty then bring it back and I would be all for it for murderers, rapists and paedophiles.

      Too many cases I have been reading about where a convicted person has been exonerated by DNA evidence. How terrible it would be to do have someone put to death only to find out they were innocent in the end.

      I have to say I have only agreed with the death penalty just one time and he was guilty of horrendous crimes and was quite proud of it. The world is a better place without him. Sometimes though innocent people have died and been found innocent after their deaths in the past.

      I think everything is flawed, but I'm a jerk, so it's better to have a murderer killed than letting him run free.

      If they get it wrong you've got an innocent person killed and a murderer running free.

      But my point still stands, what if or in case we got or caught the wrong guy? Or the innocent one?

      No one deserves to die. I don't think there should be a death penalty.
