The death penalty has a foundation in justice, as do all criminal sanctions, and it spares innocent lives.

Stacy

Like the innocent people this country has executed Dudley?

Filip

something like that)))

The false innocence claims by anti death penalty activists are both blatant and legendary. Some examples:

Of all human endeavors that put innocents at risk, is there one with a better record of sparing innocent lives than the US death penalty? Unlikely.

Dudley,

For me, the fact that there is even the possibility of one innocent person to be killed is sufficient reason to claim capital punishment should not be done and is immoral.

It is also sufficient that justice is not fairly meted out in this (or any country). The poor and outcast will also receive more punishment than the wealthy, the connected, and the privileged.

Those are sufficient reasons, but my primary reason is that I am a Christian and violence must be rejected in my discipleship of Jesus of Nazareth.
