So i'm doing this thing at school about death penalty. What do you think is the positive and negative sides about it ?

Depends on the situation...

This was in the news today ironically..

99% of UK citizens want corporal punishment... I don't personally.
#8
Positive: tough on crime

Negative: If the person is innocent then there is no going back


also I'm more a fan of the nitrogen gas method rather than the electric chair etc, it seems more humane, I feel that the death penalty should cause the criminal to die but with the smallest amount of pain possible, and I know alot of people would disagree but thats just me.

Positives
- One less mass murderer the government must pay to keep in a plush prison cell playing PS3 eating his well cooked meals.
- Cyanide is cheaper than housing mass murderers, peadophiles and rapists.

Negatives
- Cost of disposal of the bodies
- Must make 100% sure the suspect is the guilty person.

rather have them die from insuverable pain cus he's probably done the same to your and/or your familly... but personally i'd go with the lethal injection thing, painless and hes gone.

Did they give details of the study with sample size, type of people asked etc? That sounds a bit over the top.

Postitive: Good Punishment, cheap, makes room for more prisoners etc
Negative: you might have got the wrong guy

No, doing your work would be doing your own research rather than feeding off the opinions of forum dwellers and passing it off as your own.

Killing Humanely? Whats the point? The end result is the same, the person is still going to die no matter what. I think once a person commits a crime such as murder, and is proven guilty, he has already given up his rights, and is no longer a citizen, but a criminal. He should be treated as such.
Live as a man. Die as a man. Become a man.

That's the proof of your incompetence, right there.

i don't believe in the death penalty, i believe people should live with what they did. death penalty seems like an easy way out to me.
this is my sig. there are many like it, but this is mine.

positive: FINALLY start getting rid of some of the scum on our streets, imo anyone guilty of murder deserves to die, if that person decided to kill a child then they deserve to die in as much pain as physically possible (i would suggest being scratched to death by thousands of kittens but whatever)
negative: yeah i guess the whole no going back if you find out you got the wrong guy thing, although having said that finding out you got the wrong guy 20 years later or something isnt great either.

For the UK, an interesting negative side effect would be dismissal from the EU which could have major economic implications.

EDIT: Just realised you're from Norway. Even though it doesn't affect you, it still holds up as a general point for all Union member countries.

Here's a negative: it entrusts your (undoubtedly retarded) government with the decision to end human life. I don't know about Norway, but in my goddamn country, I wouldn't even entrust the government with changing a lightbulb.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

positive: empties prisons
negative: sadness for family, burial costs, eaasy way out etc

quite a few more negatives.

Death penalty does nothing to deter criminals. Only Positive thing i can think of the death penalty is that it saves money on paying for prisoners.

But negatives are: getting an inoccent person, Saying "were going to kill you because you killed" seems a bit retarded if you ask me.

I believe the proper way to deal with a real bad murderer is lock them in a black room and deny them sun and just give them three basic meals and no human contact.

what you do is take your criminal x number of miles from any shore where any shore in question is an uninhabited island, and drop him in the ocean with nothing but a pair of speedos.

x varies with severity of crime.

If they make it to the island they get to live there for the rest of their lives.

If not the sharks eat them.

And the island is really ****ty, always rains and the only food is chick peas.

Actually the lethal injection is one of the most painful ways to die, it's just that the first injection (there's 3) takes away their ability to move any muscles and so to the family, or whoever's watching, it looks like they aren't in any pain as they can't scream or tense their facial muscels. Personally if I had to be excecuted and wanted it to be painless i'd go for a tank shell to the face, that's the fastest and most painless way I can possibly think of. Your head would be gone before you even feel anything! And I'd give those baStards a huge ****in' mess to tidy up! :P

There are no positives to killing someone, except for clearing one man who has been convicted. Prisons could kill every single convicted murderer they have right now, and their spots would fill up again with more murderers and petty crime commiters very quickly. Clearing space is not an advantage, just an excuse. But they did kill someone (supposedly) and I do not disagree that they have no room to complain about the death penalty, but it seems to make our government seem more 'eye for an eye' than it should be.

They asked 95,000 people.

And i agree with all of them!

I did also see this but it was in the Sun so I doubt it's actual accuracy levels. Most people I know are against it, though my mum did suggest that convicted child rapists should be chemically castrated.

It's a double edged sword really.
On the positive side there are some people who have done serious crimes such as John Wayne Gacie, posing as a clown named pogo then raping and murdering murdering some 60+ young boys. Ok in this case we should be using the death penalty, we found the corpses all over his place, there were mountains of evidence against him, and there is no chance that this guy will ever be rehabilitated, so I say we kill him.
Then on the other hand you have these cases where someone goes to jail for a crime they didn't commit simply as a victim of cirsumstance, and they get the death penalty. Years later we come to find that they were innocent and we killed an innocent man. (sorry I don't have a precidence here, but this has happened many times in America.)

So you gotta take it on a per case basis if you ask me. I think we do need a death penalty and I also think that you should only be able to appeal it once instead of over and over and over like Timothy Mcvaigh who bombs a building killing many many innocents. On the converse I think that it should only be employed in cases where it is irrefutable that the accused did such a heinous act that there is no way anyone else on the face of the globe did it and there is no way that this assailant could ever be rehablitated and can never rejoin society again. Like Gacey whom by the way was not executed do to insanity.
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!
