Unfortunately, though, as noble as this sentiment is, the ANC government will never bring back the death penalty. The past and current actions of senior members of the ruling party have given the notion that it is ok to rape, murder, be corrupt, etc etc, so how much of a deterrent could that be to anyone with similar designs? Besides, the ANC need the criminals' votes, so they can't be seen to be putting the skids on their ''ground troops'' for fear of pissing them off! No - unfortunately,...

No - unfortunately, whilst the ANC holds the reigns, we can be sure that violent crime, incompetence, corruption, self-enrichment of their so-called elite, etc etc, is here to stay for a long, long time.

So sad, but so true, Adelle. Youre right, Erwin - the ANC's double standards are something we've grown to expect, so it's not really that suprising that they turn a blind eye to the shenanigans of their own kind. I was reading up on the Nazis just recently - some of the similarities are quite chilling!!

well you know the saying - bad things happen because good people do nothing about it. even though we EXPECT the ANC to never bring back the death sentence because of the above mentioned reasons, doesn't mean we should EXCEPT it,right? What would've happened to apartheid if the oppressed just EXCEPTED that it will never end? Maybe the ANC will never bring it back ,if we can get enough signatures, it can open up the floodgates for a debate or maybe even a referendum no? YOU WILL NEVER KNOW IF YOU DO NOT TRY

Our murders per 1000 head of population surpasses even Angola. in America they have shown a significant reduction in the herder rate in the states where the death penalty has been reintroduced. If the judges are afraid of making a mistake they can order a test bmo a brain fingerprint machine which has to date shown to be 100% accurate and reliable. BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY!

There is nothing complex about killing, once you have crossed the line you are a danger to people, outside or inside a prison. It is nothing but SICK to take taxpayer's money to feed these monsters. Get rid of the rubbish of society, clean up.

Gary those are strong claims - I wonder about your sources - can you support your claim that "in America they have shown a significant reduction in the herder rate in the states where the death penalty has been reintroduced" (sic) ?
see http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/facts-about-deterrence-and-death-penalty as a starting point for evidence that suggests your claim is nonsense.

I am appalled by the fact that someone seriously proposes to reinstate the death penalty. This is an attack on human rights and should be branded as such. Shame on the individuals who support such a barbarity.

You are then NOT appalled by the wholesale rape and murder of innocent people. especially here South Africa where even little children and raped, killed and their bodies dumped all over the place..I wonder what your feeling would be if these killings affected your close family.

Yes I am appalled by all kinds of rapes. The death penalty, however, is not the solution for this problem. The numer of rapes is not influenced by the severity or barbarity of the penalties inflicted. In the US where the death penalty was reintroduced after the moratorium of the 70s, the reintroduction had no visible affect on the number of violent crimes. It helps to argue based on facts and not based on anger.

I can't sign this petition --- Death is not the answer for rapists, death is not the answer to anything. Everyone has a right to live, and only God can judge us. If you are willing to answer to God on the Day of Judgement... stand before him and say, "I killed this man, because what he did was wrong in my eyes", then go ahead, and await your judgement as well.

If you are willing to answer to God on the Day of Judgement... stand before him and say, "I killed this man, because what he did was wrong in my eyes", then go ahead, and await your judgement as well. I feel strongly against Rape in our country, and I truly believe that it's something that needs to be looked at, at the core of our country, and the right questions need to be asked, like: "Who is truly to blame?", "What caused him to do this?" --- What's the fundamental issue regarding rape.

As a young man, I really believed that the Death Penalty was the answer to a lot of things, and I couldn't understand why people thought it was bad --- till today, at times, I can't help but have an outburst of emotion, where I want to kill murderers and rapists myself... but in a country where we're still learning and growing, we need to be more understanding of what we all truly believe in - Human Rights. I am a fair and just person, and to me the answer is to have them castrated, or something of the like.

Even as I write this, I can't help but think that maybe Death is truly the answer for the unjustice, that has been forced upon some women and men.

so you would rather have them suffer for life (castrated) ,rather than having them put down? Very humane of you. Do you realise that while you were writing your comment, 3 women have been brutally raped and over the weekend a 2 year old was raped so brutally raped and left for dead that she is still in hospital? She will never be able to have kids of her own one day.

The death penalty has never been a deterrent for this or any other kind of crime. We have a systemic problem with our criminal justice system which requires serious capacity and re-training as well as sensitivity training for patriarchal minded officials. It is only when we get these things right that we can get successful prosecutions and convictions. Its only at that stage that the sentence is applied. Many cases never get there due to incompetence, inefficiency and sometimes a...

Do you really think that someone who is about to create a crime as despicable as this is going to think, " Wait, If I do this I might receive the death penalty"? People commit crime because they think they can get away with it! The death penalty does not work as a deterent!

I say let's for once stand together and see if the death penalty will help? If the murder rate doesn't drop, we can go back to the failing NGO government campaigns as it is today.Whoopteedoo. give me some facts and figures. do you know that more people die in SA ANNUALLY than the total deaths in Ireland while they were at WAR?

I pray for it.if not we must force it.on the government.

But what else can you suggest Mzi, nothing seems to work - the justice system doesn't always hold true back home. Do more lives have to be lost to find the right solution? I'm lost for words at what is happening to people back home, know one has the right either to instill the fear that people are living with daily in SA. :( So what to do then....?
