Besides, the chances of large countries, important countries (I.E Russia, America, China) getting rid of the Capital Punishment is, I find, very unlikely. They may not be the top executors, but I doubt they'll get rid of it. NOTE: I consider the UK important, but I'm not sure they use Capital punishment.
Could you please watch your language? This is a board that encourages children to visit, and saying something like "evil son of a Pretty pink butterflies" really isn't appropriate at all.
Oh, and BTW, my stance on this: Capital punishment is only alright if someone's committed crimes against humanity. (e.g Adolf Eichmann, designer of the Final Solution for the Extermination for Jewish People. )
“Charge 1: He was ultimately responsible for the murder of millions of Jews.
Charge 2: He placed these Jews, before they were murdered, in living conditions designed to kill them.
Charge 3: He caused them grave physical and mental harm.
Charge 4: He took actions which resulted in the sterilization of Jews and otherwise prevented childbirth.
Charge 5: He caused the enslavement, starvation, and deportation of millions of Jews.
Charge 6: He caused general persecution of Jews based on national, racial, religious and political grounds.
Charge 7: He spoiled Jewish property by inhuman measures involving compulsion, robbery, terrorism and violence.
Charge 8: That all of the above were punishable war crimes.
Charge 9: He deported a half-million Poles.
Charge 10: He deported 14,000 Slovenes.
Charge 11: He deported tens of thousands of gypsies.
Charge 12: He deported and murdered 100 Czech children from the village of Lidice.
(BTW, I took that from The Eichmann Trial
, an established website - and it's also from my own year-long history project, in which facts must be verified, so I'm positive that these were his exact charges.)
So you see what I mean. This man was clearly a blight upon humanity. He did receive the death sentence (might I mention that he was the only man in Israel's history ever to receive this sentence.)
So, yeah. If the person committed crimes against humanity (genocide, etc. - this isn't covering singular murders) capital punishment is alright. If not, it's definitely not alright.
