    i think of I see your factor. In a fashion it does seem hypocritical that squaddies can come to a determination who needs to die and who would not and the common citizen could face the death penalty for that. yet it particularly is why we've a knowledgeable militia. they're meant to have the means to discriminate between who poses a hazard and who would not. i think of you're searching for for the answer somewhat backwards regardless of the shown fact that. How on the subject of the death penalty for baby molesters and harsher outcomes for different crimes. Rehabilitation is a captivating concept, yet the place is the cut back? how many situations does somebody could get caught hurting little youngsters earlier we get the factor that it particularly is not something which could be fixed?

    Yes. In fact, America is the only country from the Western world that still administers the death penalty. In Europe and elsewhere it is considered inhumane, and too risky considering the possibility of a false conviction being overturned by new evidence.

    Yes. Here in Canada whenever they have a referendum on the death sentence, the majority vote in favour of it but the stupid politicians don't do what their electors want. They use their own personal ideas and do not bring it into effect. I wish we had it here to empty out some of the garbage in our jails and reduce the load on the taxpayer.

    Most states have the death penalty, along with the federal government. Some states have abolished the death penalty for state crimes.

    Most states do have Capital Punishment, and have used it in the last 30 years.

    Yes, there are. A number of states apply the death penalty as punishment for murder.

    Sort of "you kill, we kill you back".

    There are. Mostly in Texas. It doesn't amount to much in real life but keeps people stirred up and costs about 10 times as much money to continue than it would to put people in prison for life.
