A nice and touchy topic to discuss . Here comes my part of argument..
First of all . the poll should have only 2 options. "yes" or "No". What does 100% guilty means . As per many countries law. The defendant is looked as Not guilty . It is the necessity of prosecution to prove guiltiness with records and Proofs. Until proved and convinced he can't be convicted. So 100% guilty doesn't make sense to me..
Now to the actual topic. I would strongly say a "No" to death penalty. The value of Human Life needs to be respected at any cost. It is not a chemical process to make it reversible.
In today's world where money rules people, where corruption exists in all levels..it is possible for a person who is not guilty to be convicted. There have been incidents reported about misjudgements which have costed lives.. Everyone needs to accept .."To Err is Human".. I wont disagree that there are people out there who most certainly deserve death, I'm just stating that I'd hate to be one of the people to decide his or her fate. My reason - what if I'm wrong?
Many will quote, 'The Bible says, "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, a life for a life." They will go into the Law of Moses and bolster their views through the various passages that declare that the law of God supports it. But Look at this tooo..As Mahatma gandhi said, "An eye for an eye will only serve to make the whole world blind."
Capital punishment is not the answer. It is not a solution to crime. It is merely a 'bandaid' solution to a festering wound upon the soul of society. It doesn't stop crime, it doesn't curb crime. Killing on either side of the law is still killing. It only serves to further the shedding of blood, and inflaming the underlying rage that society bears at present. Capital punishment isn't about justice, or restitution. It's about vengeance and revenge.
Pro-capital punishment pundits would give away statistics in support of capital punishment For example surveys like these.... 'Do you support capital punishment?' many will answer in the affirmative. ......Ironically , reframe them and ask , 'Do you support capital punishment, or would you support alternatives' .If an alternative choice is given then public support for capital punishment would definetely plummet like todays stock Market .
I hope I have put down some of my points here. I dont wanna exhaust too much...
