Do you think the death penalty has a place in todays society?
I ask this of all citizens of all nations, do you wish the death penalty was not an option where you live? Do you wish it was an option? Do you believe it to be a just deterrent to the most serious crimes? Do you believe it to be the most barbaric way a civilization can express it’s collective will? Do you believe it helps a wider part of society than those directly affected by the perpetrators crime? Do you believe it is merely a cost cutting exercise? Do you believe it makes the populace safer?
