So really, I'm just uncertain. I know that it's probably logical not to have a death penalty and probably right too. More death doesn't change anything. And I don't think that ALL people convicted of murder (i.e. crimes of passion, est.) deserve the death penalty. I don't think you can just label something like this right or wrong. It's not all black and white. But the problem is that when it comes to the law, apparently, we tend to take that tone simply to prevent abuse of the system and chaos, est. It's simply a flaw in a system that's never going to be perfect, no matter how hard we try.
When it comes down to it, I don't make the laws and I don't plan to. I'll leave that up to other, more suited, people.
I could always give up my beliefs if I somehow saw how the death penalty helps in stopping these horrible crimes from happening, unfortunately it doesn't, and there are so many hypocritical aspects surrounding it (specially the death penalty system in the US) that I really can't accept it.
Still, without taking in account the legality and the system, it's a complicated issue wether we should have the right to kill someone or not, hell, do we even have the right to let them live ?
