Just a community discussion over here. Tell us some against/for arguments or tell us your opinion to this topic - let's have a peaceful discussion about it My opinion: I'm personally against it. I think death penalty is not necessary in a civilized community nor in the 21-century. Some people say it saves lives because it makes criminals scared of the punishment - I don't think so. If someone is mentally ill, he will do it anyway. A person demanding death to a murderer is not better than the murderer himself. Death penalty is just revenge killing. And I thought that we wanted to stop that.
