“If you must break the law do it to seize power, in all other cases – observe it” – Julius Cesar.
This is a topic which is often raised with those for it and those against. Into the subject goes morality and ethics. Should the death penalty be allowed? Should it be re-instated? Is there warrant for it?
In my own personal opinion I believe there is a warrant for it. I often hear on the radio of murders and serial killers and horrific crimes and its very upsetting. Often these sick crimes are rewarded with hardly any kind of a punishment. How is prison a punishment in these days? They get to stay safe indoors in nice enough conditions and get priviledges and some even get computers. Why are these people being given anything? They should be made to exist in the worse of conditions.
Once I visited Beaumaris jail on the isle of Anglesey. This was a jail in the Victorian times and is now a tourist attraction. As soon as I walked in I could feel the tight suffocating atmosphere. I could instantly tell suffering had took place here for any crimes. The rooms were small and some with no windows. The inmates had to work hard just for their breakfast. They were punished hard if stepped out of line. How have prisons changed so much that inmates are now seen having fun and drinking and mobile phones sneaked in unnoticed. What kind of places have prisons become where it is acceptable to be in and not too much hardship? Where the life is OK. Prisons should be feared. They should be a place where human rights for murderers is hard to come by.
Some will say its inhumane to execute them. But where was their humanity and humane views when they took innocent lives? These people are exempt from humanity. They are not apart of it.
They should be wiped out and took out of life so we don’t have to care for them. This will free up space in prisons with people of lesser crimes. This will save the tax payer paying to keep them and the money can be put towards a good thing instead of useless to society monsters.
People say ‘oh killing them is an easy way out for them’ but I dont care. I dont care about that I want them gone and no longer a threat to anyone and not allowed to live. They take up space and time and money. If I murdered someone I would expect to lose my life and why not?
If someone had murdered someone close to me I dont see jail as justice not in the modern day. When has society become so weak it is scared to punish such evil? What kind of society do we live in where murderers can still have their life and live it out in an OK environment protected by laws and human rights after they took a life away?
Surely human rights shouldnt apply to these people. They opted out when they disrespected the human rights of others.
Recently it was on the radio of a man who killed a man in an unprovoked attack and punched him. He died and the man who killed him got 6 years in jail. How is 6 years justice for the victims family?? The victim got an eternal sentence. His life was ended!
He faces a small punishment then walks back into civilization to enjoy his life and see friends and family etc. Whereas his. Victim is gone forever… He has murdered someone. What if he does it again?
I know in certain situations we must be careful incase there isn’t much evidence but one concrete evidence where is the issue with putting monsters down? Imagine if one of these people escaped..
Some will argue that these people can be rehabilitated and helped but for what purpose? They can never be released and allowed back into society. They can never be allowed a normal life. What is the point in wasting resources on these people? They knew what they were doing when they broke the law. So if you cant do the time dont do the crime. I understand rapists and thieves etc should be given second chances etc but murderers especially cold brutal murderers should be put to sleep. Im not refering to accidental murder as in manslaughter etc because that is just unfortunate. There are situations where you might accidentally kill someone etc and thats fair enough its unfortunate but intended murder is evil. Child murderers are evil etc why are they allowed to continue? The yorkshire ripper for example costs the British taxpayer alot of money a year to house him etc why bother? He cant be free. Can the money not be put to a more useful cause?
Society needs to be stricter on those who operate outside its core. Outside the mainstream of society which operates nice behaviour and compassion. Why should nice people be put at risk?
Perhaps knowing you will die too will make murderers think twice. Everyone knows murder is wrong. The only regret some of these murderers have is being caught.
But we all have our own opinions on this naturally. Mine is to keep society such as our children truly safe…
