For instance if you steal somting, your fingers get chopped off if your over the age of 12(i think). Becasue if you are older then 12 you should grasp the concept of ethics and morals. (...)
HE SHOULD NOT DIE THAT EASY, somthing that kills you peacefully. ALL THE
CONSERVATIVES SHOULD WAKE UP! KILLING SOMEONE HUMANILY AFTER HE KILLED 162 PEOPLE IS NOT FAIR!
I'm shattered. You are asking for penalties from the middleages. You are rather uncivilized in this case, hm? What the hell has chopping fingers off from hand got to do with moral and ethics?
And sentencing people to dead is wrong. Period. The death penalty only shows that in some cases a human being's life isn't worth much.
If you murder another human being in anything other than self-defense, you give up your rights as a human being.
No. This is your own (wrong) interpretation. The international standard is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. You should read it.
We use the death penalty because it is the only punishment that is even remotely equal to the crime committed.
Ahem. Why killing people to show, that killing people is wrong?
That is justice.
No. That is revenge.
If you don't like justice, go live in an anarchist state and see how many minutes you live.
Hello-ho. I didn't know Germany (abolished the dead penalty in 1949) was an anarchist state. I thougt it was quite a save place to live.
If you're from another country and don't like the death penalty, fine. Don't have it in your country. But knock off the complaining and whining when we deal with our people in our own way and mind your own business, will you?
No. Americans are always fast when it comes to mention a poor human rights-situation in other countries - which is good. On the other hand the US are one of the very,very few countries where even mentally retarded people and minors are sentenced to dead.
"Mind you own business" is exactly the same Chinese officials will say to you when you urge them to take steps to improve the situation of human rights.
