England used to have the death penalty and I wanna see peoples views on if they should bring back the death penalty to the United Kindom.

As most of us know, in some states in America they do allow the death penalty.

No. Absolutely not. Whatever the crime. Killing is killing, whether it's 'ok'-d by the state or not. I have very strong vews on the subject. To me, 'legal' execution is still very much putting a stop on a life of a human being. Revenge masked as justice.

I'm in the US, not the UK – I think the death penalty is a very good thing, PROVIDING... you don't delude yourselves into thinking it's a deterrent of some sort, because it's not. Back during the "wild West days" in the US they had public executions (usually hangings) for things like horse thieving, that did nothing to deter other people from stealing horses. No, the death penalty is simply 'taking out the trash' to get such lowlifes out of the human gene pool. The other thing to guard against is a system like what the US has now, where lawyers can file endless petitions and challenges, and someone convicted of the death penalty stands a better chance of dying in prison from old age or other causes, long before they get the needle. And don't authorize death by lethal injection,it's not merely terrifying and painful enough! If someone has done something to earn the death penalty, they should do a lot of this world and is much fear and agony as their victims did. My personal vote would be for the electric chair. And there is my opinion! Yes, "killing is killing – but remember, there's absolutely nothing wrong with killing providing the right people do the dying.
