Bring back the death penalty and see how quickly and drastically our violent crime rates drop. The death penalty for : Murder, rape, kidnapping, armed robbery and those folks who steal other people's life savings because they ar stealing thei liveilhhood. So you say you have a constitutional right to life? What about the life you have stolen or destroyed by your crime! Yes, there will be the occasional innocent person dying but now that innocent person sits in jail and gets raped etc. If...

So you say you have a constitutional right to life? What about the life you have stolen or destroyed by your crime! Yes, there will be the occasional innocent person dying but now that innocent person sits in jail and gets raped etc. If you die innocently, it will not have been in vain because it will have been for a very good cause, to save the lives of countless others. And forgiveness has nothing to do with it. Yes forgive and pray for the person who committed the crime, but the law of the country must mete out just consequences.

The thing with the death penalty is that its proven not to make a difference to crime statistics and what we need to bare in mind is that the criminal justice system is not about revenge, its about reforming people (an idealistic imperative toward which our system must aspire) OR when that is impossible its about removing them from society in order to keep society safe.

Emphatic calls to re-introduce the death penalty are fueled by revenge which has no place in the system. In addition to this, in the US at least, it costs more to put someone to death than it does to keep them in prison for life and even if that were not the case surely society must bare the responsibility of it's creations and fit the bill for keeping the monsters locked away. Finally; if the US justice system cannot avoid the "accidental" execution of possibly dozens of innocent people (see http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/executed-possibly-innocent) can we really expect due process in SA? The cost of maintaining someone for life in prison is also the cost of being absolutely sure that no innocent people are sent to their death. Signing this petition is giving consent for our society to regress toward barbarism - why not start a petition that reintroduces torture?

Let me get this straight... You want to bring back the death penalty, as in 'kill someone' because that person had a disregard for life??

A Little Ironic.

I abhor the violence against women. But you are wrong about the death penalty. Study after study has shown that it does not deter crime. What it does is turn us all into people who kill.

This is not to be a racist thing but intended for all people who commit heanous and brutal crimes.

Is it just me or has anyone noticed that only white people commented on this cause? Don't get me wrong, I'm also for the death penalty, but it ain't going to happen.
