Belief Listing Project: Death Penalty

January 12th, 2012

I don't think the death penalty should be legal, in our society as it currently stands. It's generally applied to the wrong cases, often because the public found the crime particularly shocking for reasons unrelated to the law. It's too unpredictable to function well as a deterrent. It doesn't even save money, compared to life in prison.

I don't, however, oppose the death penalty in the abstract. I think you could have a healthy society where the standard punishment for some crimes was death.
