My Thoughts on the Death Penalty

two wrongs make a right? I don't think so…

No, I don't believe in the death penalty. A life for a life doesn't make it ok. two wrongs don't make a right. wrongful convictions happen sometimes and there's no way of getting them back after their dead. life without parole is sufficient enough. they have no chance of ever getting out and just living the rest of their lives in prison. death is so finite and permanent.

  1. It may be permanent, but don’t you find it better to know that it will all be over and you don’t have to waste your life being actually captive (as a prisoner), and don’t you believe that if someone would commit a terrible crime that would… affect your family, you wouldn’t want to know that the criminal will get the hardest punishment possible? Because in my opinion the “eye for an eye” saying does work on some level. You can see my take on it hear: http://alecsonline.wordpress.com/2010/07/27/death-penalty-good-or-bad/
