I Oppose the Death Penalty in Principle and Here's Why

An exchange in the thread regarding the penalty for the surviving marathon bomber prompted me to inquire as to the reasons the ChiefsPlanet anti-death penalty community hold that position. Please note that this will be a public poll, and since you can have multiple reasons for the position, you may vote for as many as you like.

That's not really a question. Why did you place a question mark at the end?

I don't mind the death penalty in theory, but I currently oppose it because it's become clear that the justice system doesn't always get it right, and in fact it's appearing that they often get it wrong. That's kind of scary on many accounts.

If a person confesses to a crime or if there's overwhelming evidence that is incontrovertible, the death penalty is fine. But if not, I think we shouldn't do it based on what we now know about the fallibility of jury trials.

No, it was a statement about your curiousities. If it was a question then it should have read something like "How many of the anti-death penalty people are pro-abortion?"

So the question remains. Why did you place a question mark at the end of your statement?

Death penalty is for the worst of the worst. I don't understand how anyone could be against someone like the Carr brothers getting what they deserve.

The threat of the death penalty is also a very effective tool that a prosecutor can use to get a guilty plea from a defendant and spare the family of the victim(s) from having to endure a long and protracted trial.

If supporting the death penalty makes me a bloodthirsty vengeance-seeking cretin, so be it.
Couldn't have said it better myself.

I suppose you could call it that. But, I'd be curious as to why one would be fine with one and not the other?
