the Death Penalty

I'm against it.

I wouldn't complain too hard if applied to a rapist or murderer.

For drug trafficking it is a ludicrous and bizarrely over the top punishment. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.

Don't smuggle drugs in countries where they execute your for it. It is stupid. Very very very stupid.



That is the short version of my feelings on this.

*prompted by this of course.

Also not in support of it.

I'm grateful we have the constitution we do, in spite of all the crime and murdering going abouts, the death penalty will do squat to change those stats in any case.

This girl was stupid, I feel for her family.

Here's another one:

Been pondering it since I heard about it but the poll on news 24 prompted me to actually make a post:

Quote
Unavoidable - it’s the law of the country 28% 7162 votes
Unacceptable - capital punishment is barbaric and draconian 12% 3116 votes
A strong message against drug trafficking 60% 15279 votes

Seriously 60%?? 15279 peoples? (wtf!!)

The sooner drugs are legalised the better. Anyone who thinks it's acceptable to view the killing of a human being as "sending a message" has a serious problem with their moral compass. They should learn to use email to send messages, or take out a full page ad in the Sunday Times.

Give us drugs not thugs.

drug trafficing is making a stupid ass decision.
surely not worth getting killed for?
then again, trafficing the drugs, has a knock-on effect of possibly destroying people lives/careers/families.
but so does alchohol.
so it's all relative.
personally, i wouldnt impose hectic sentences, but rather make them spend a few years working in a rehad facility, to see what kind of effect the drugs have.
