Do you approve of the death penalty?

The death penalty is the most severe penalty in Japan. It is mostly enforced for murderers that killed two or more people with murderous intent. Some people oppose it because they think it is against human rights. However, I wonder what they think about the human rights of people who were killed. No matter how many people a murderer kills, is it really necessary to think about the human rights of the murder? One problem of the death penalty is false charges. If the death penalty is enforced in the case of a false charge, there is no recovering from that. Does your country have the death penalty? Do you approve of it?

Hello, Saba. Thank you for your comment. Yes, I am very sad and feel angry when children are killed by murderers.

If someone kills a child on purpose, this is not forgivable at all and the death penalty is necessary in order to defend children rights.

Hi, Hardi. Thank you for sharing your view. As for smartphones, I agree with "Many people are enslaved by their phones".

Hi, Mishaikh. Of course, I would feel angry. Murderers should be sentenced the death penalty or imprisonment for life.

It's wrong because, someone has to make decision/judge first. Someone has to execute. I would be able to do neither. So how then I could demand existence of such penalty, if I would fail to follow such law..? It's not good to ask others to do the job, I don't want to do by my self.

But when boarding the definition of death and death penalty. When including also other things than human lives.. I really hate smartphones. I want them to get executed.
Even though I think it's bad to ban ideas, or terminating whatever ideas.. The idea of creating a smart phone, should have been killed, even before it has fully born. That's how bad things are smartphones, in my opinion. ^_^

I see so many people enslaved by their phones.
If the world will ever doom, then it's because smartphone.

PS. I guess if I say "executing" for idea. It can't be understood whether I want to kill the idea or make it alive/fulfill. :D

 "But if the person really regrets his crime and want to atone for it for the rest of his life in a prison...."

After all at a certain time a lifetime imprisonment gets over and the prisoner is released, what will you feel seeing this man before you who has snatched a love one from you?

Hello, Mishaikh, Thank you for your comment. If my family are killed by someone, of couse, I want the person to be punished equally. But if the person really regrets his crime and want to atone for it for the rest of his life in a prison, I may not demand the death penalty for him.

What you think if someone kills your someone, would you not want them to be punished equally?
