Yes,but only for child rape,human trafficking and international banking.

@4XB359Sfrom Massachusetts  answered…2yrs

I support cruel and unusual punishment rather than the death penalty or life in prison.

@4WVPX4Lfrom Virginia  answered…2yrs

No. Some people deserve to die. In fact, let's expand it to include child molesters, corrupt politicians, and the jerk who steals my parking space.

@5F2HBVHfrom New York  answered…2yrs

For fascists and pedophiles, but it should be done on a community-based protocol, not through the federal government.

 @JonBSimConstitutionfrom Kentucky  disagreed…2wks

Yes, but only for horrific crimes with undeniable evidence

Sounds an awful lot like a lynch mob.

@4Z3Q5XRfrom California  answered…2yrs

Yes and all death row prisoners should give up all rights and we should use body parts of all death row convicts as needed to save the lives of law abiding citizens

@5BHLNC2from Florida  answered…2yrs

I think you should get 3 chances and if you do it for the 3rd time then you should do life in prison.

Those who are for the death penalty are hypocritical. You are killing someone because they killed someone.... you are punishing them for a crime that you are committing by killing them. And if you kill that person they don't have to live with the wrongs they have done. Spending life in prison is way more harsh then killing them.

 @JonBSimConstitutionfrom Kentucky  disagreed…2wks

Yes, but only for horrific crimes with undeniable evidence

That assumes the victim shares the same status as the perpetrator.

Murder is the unlawful/immoral execution of a person.

The death penalty is the lawful/moral execution of a person who has performed a heinous act.

@5B47QPPfrom New York  answered…2yrs

It is morally justifiable to execute a guilty person. It is not morally justifiable to kill innocent babies in the womb.

@4T3P39Zfrom Ohio  answered…2yrs

Yes, bring back public hangings and executions for more serious crimes. There needs to be more deterrents because our jails are like hotels.

@5BDTFCCfrom Texas  answered…2yrs

I would rather support the elongated torture of prisoners over the death penalty, or life in prison. The fear of being thrown into prison would send shivers down the spines of those locked in urban conflict, as well as lead toward everlasting peace within the United States.

there should be labor camps where people who deserve severe punishments for their actions would have to do hard labor in different fields of their choosing!

@4T3L8DKfrom Alabama  answered…2yrs

The Victim's family should decide the punishment after it is ruled the criminal did the crime 100% true

@5F7MWHKfrom Florida  answered…2yrs

Its hard, but terrorists, child molesters, people who commit crimes against humanity can suffer the death penalty. The death penalty can take these dangerous people out of the world, if they are not willing to change or if they are very dangerous. If we kill bad people in war, is hypocritical to say is wrong to kill bad people outside of war. Obviously you have to follow the laws and procedures.

@5DSTL3Mfrom Maryland  answered…2yrs

Yes, but only for an offender who murders a law enforcement officer, a correctional office, or another inmate while incarcerated.

@5F5VMJWRepublicanfrom Minnesota  answered…2yrs

Yes, but only for horrific crimes with undeniable evidence and the victim’s family should decide the punishment

@4T4LV86from Pennsylvania  answered…2yrs

@5F7PCXCfrom Georgia  answered…2yrs

No, and the prison system should be reformed from punishment oriented to rehabilitation oriented

@533XMVZfrom Michigan  answered…2yrs

Yes, I'm abnormal I think the death penalty is more merciful than forcing someone into solitude forever against their will

@963VQPV from South Carolina answered…1hr

No, but only because of the psychological damage to the executioner

 @The-Progressive-… from Kentucky answered…11hrs

No, too many people are wrongly convicted and it is morally wrong

@963GHP2 from Missouri answered…12hrs

Yes, as long as there is undeniable evidence and the victim's family agrees.

Yes I support but I also do believe the justice system takes to long so maybe if we can handle it on our own before police arrivals that's justice.

@962MDSS from Virginia answered…1 day

@95YY5R6Green from Idaho answered…2 days

I support the death penalty in these scenarios: If the convicted person is innocent but has not yet been proven innocent then no, if the convicted person is convicted to the highest extent with sufficent evidence to give them the death penalty then yes.

@95Y5X7FRepublican from Indiana answered…4 days

Only against people charged with multiple violent crimes and the victim or victim's family isn't opposed to it after a decade of imprisonment.

@95Y4XT2Republican from Nebraska answered…4 days

I don’t believe one deserves to die even if they did something evil. we still have to treat them as human. just give them life in prison.

@95XQV3L from Pennsylvania answered…4 days

I think that life in prison should still be the main punishment, especially for murderers who have committed it once. However, for people who have committed the act and other heinous crimes like rape again and again, leaving behind a trail of victims, they should be given the death penalty if there is undeniable evidence.

Yes, but it should be reformed, with undeniable evidence, and the reinstatement of the firing squad to limit the amount of "botched" executions.
