I am wholeheartedly against it for 2 reasons.

1. It's completely hypocritical

2. There are far worse punishments than death.

Religion is for those who are afraid of going to Hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

Glad I am not the only one against the DP.

Killing the person won't bring that persons victim back and why should I join the ranks of people that kill? Reason I am also against the war. To me this is no different killing is killing.

From a European perspective, this why the United States cannot be considered as a "Civilised" country (Note: I'm talking here about government not people).

No country is allowed membership of the European Union if they continue to maintain the death penalty on it's statutes. This is one of the problems with Turkey's application for membership of the EU.

I agree fully and to some degree I place this even on the people as so many actually still support such barbaric punishments. Not saying what the criminal did was right but why should we sink to their level??? unsure.gif

Like most Europeans, I am totally opposed to the death penalty.

No country that kills its citizens - for whatever reason - can claim to be 'advanced'..... sad.gif

Hey it's a start you have to think positive that is what I keep telling my tennis doubles partner when we're down 2-5 and come back to win the thing in a tie breaker. LOL

You may be interested to know that today 10th October is 'The World against the Death Penalty Day' http://www.amnesty.org.uk/action/camp/dp/index.shtml

In 2002 at least 1,526 people were executed in 31 countries. At least 3,248 people were sentenced to death in 67 countries. These figures include only cases known to Amnesty International; the true figures were certainly higher. The vast majority of executions worldwide are carried out in a tiny handful of countries. In 2002, 81 percent of all known executions took place in China, Iran and the USA.
