Do I have to repeat this: HOMICIDE RATES DROP WHEN THE DEATH PENALTY IS BANNED!

Hey.
I'm part of a local Amnesty youth group and we're organizing an exhibition where one of the topics is death penalty. Can we use this picture?
It's really a great concept.

My opinion. You don't have to agree.

I would like to ask.

Why are you against the death penalty?

Hi, I am against it for a few reasons. 1)The religious reason: all life is sacred, it's not for us to take away---- two wrongs don't make a right. Also, It doesn't give the family time to forgive or the murderer time to make right with himself/herself and thus more suffering for everyone. Plus, the murderer is someones family member too, so it just continues the circle of grief. 2) If the murderer does end up feeling sorry he/she will suffer more in guilt being left alive in the prison than if we just end their life. The death penalty is a minute or less of suffering for the murderer when he has caused a lifetime of suffering for the family of the killed person/people.... it's almost as if killing him/her is the easy way out for them. That just doesn't make sense to me. They should instead allow them to live a VERY limited life in prison. THAT is suffering more than just killing them. It's not like when they die they will be able to regret it and look back and be like "man, i shouldn't have done that"... it's just game over for them with no time to think about what they did. 3) The death penalty actually costs MORE than keeping them imprisoned. website reference for you on that one: [link]

and that's why. I hope that helps answer your question. Also, I do believe everyone is entitled to their opinions so please don't try to argue this with me. I'm not trying to change anyones mind, i'm not rallying or anything. You asked, I told and you are welcome to share your opinion back, but let's not make this a political fight or anything. Thank you.

-Maria

Thanks for your mature and honest opinion.
However I would like to state what I think of the matter.
As for religion. Religion should have no say in the matter due to the supposed seperation of church and state. I grew up Christian, and I do not believe that everything living thing is sacred. Demons, ghosts, are forms of life, are they sacred? As for time.
Most people that are on Death Row spend years even decades waiting to die. It gives them plenty of time to ask for forgiveness and repent. It's not an easy way out. Another thing is that we don't have the resources and money to house all of the criminals. Our prisons are already overcrowded.
It's not a minute or less of suffering, it is usually about a decade counting down the time until your death.

I'm not trying to change your mind, I'm just providing why I think you are wrong.
I'm not going to just say "You're wrong" I'm going to explain why I think you are wrong.

I see your views.

Thank you for the specifications.
