Seems to work in Singapore.
Singapore and Hong Kong have a similar culture and living standard. Singapore has executed about 100 people in the last 20 years whereas Hong Kong hasn’t executed anyone in 60 years.
But the murder rate in both places is similar (very, very low). Which tells us there are other reasons for the low murder rate, and capital punishment has nothing to do with it.
Either way I believe in an eye for an eye so see ya buddy.
So we are instituting biblical standards for the death penalty then?
Get ready for executions for those convicted of adultery, witchcraft, cursing at parents, working on the sabbath, homosexuality, not being a virgin at marriage, blasphemy.....
Looks like I myself may have multiple “death sentences” awaiting me for these biblical crimes I’ve committed throughout my life....
