Hello everyone, i recently(20 minutes ago) started wondering what intelligent people thought about the death penalty, i consider myself by no means close to highly intelligent so i'd like to ask:
What do you think about the death penalty?
personally i don't like it, death isn't punishment fitting of crimes like rape, murder, kidnapping, child-molestation etc.
i think lifetime imprisonment is the way to go. ^^
The earnings should go to pay the cost of keeping them in there.
A lot of it does, albeit indirectly. Whatever money that the state would have spent buying prison made goods somewhere else goes into other things, like paying for prisons.
That used to be considered unfair competition against business, but now that the prison system is ran by private enterprise it's just another form of labor.
