In my opinion the death sentence should be brought back for premeditated murders, mass murderers, drug barons and peadophiles. There are many peadophiles who have ruined people's lives, not just the victims, but their families too.

Why is this idea important?

It will reduce the number in prisons, it's a punishment that fits the crime. It will act as a deterent to those who kill who want to get revenge.

Drug barons are indirectly killing thousands of people by supplying drugs which they could either overdose on, or end up killing others whilst under the influence.

Peadophiles are hurting children physically and scarring them mentally. The majority, if not all, know that it's illegal to have sex with under 16's. If the victim is a teenager who looks older than 16 and it's questionable whether they knew the age, then they should receive a prison sentence- common sense must be used when giving the death sentence.

  1. Killing is wrong. End of.

    However, they should be allowed to take there own lifes. But thats a diffrent thing.

  2. Applying the death penalty is fraught with difficulties. It is not swift and simple justice. If justice were perfect then it would be a suitable punishment for certain crimes. However, justice is not perfect. Consequently, application of the death penalty would also be imperfect. I could not support such a system.

  3. Bring it back for “exceptional circumstanses” i.e. not for “beyond reasonable doubt” but “beyond any doubt” such as Ian Huntly and the like. I accept that people can get wrongly convicted, but with some murderers there can be no doubt.

    The oldest copies of the Bible written in hebrew are very clear on “thou shalt not kill” as it is translated in the King James onwards. It says “THOU SHALT NOT MURDER” which it a very different thing……….

    1. if they bring back death penalty in uk that would be a good way for them to shut us up. queen loves to sign death warrants she has signed 100s in other countries she rules look it up its true they don’t tell us that on the box ( tv)

  4. What if the accused is wrongly convicted?..??

    I was convicted by a jury of a crime I did not commit so I know it happens!

    1. I read you, the courts cant be 100% correct, which I find disturbing to say the least… however so why cant we just execute the killers and perverts who actually admit it, and pass as ‘of sound mind’ perhaps? im sure theyre not all just mentally warped individuals

      1. Even someone admitting a crime does not guarantee that they are actually guilty.

  5. It should be brought back…but only to those who kill. Sounds daft, but murderers are committing illegal killings of innocent children and adults. The Death penalty would be legal.

  6. It would be ok, but the system can not be trusted to get judgement right. Plus its far too easy to frame someone for murder

  7. Yeh let’s Hang em High, does it matter if the odd innocent one drops through through the trap door!
    Well actually it does and for that reason alone it should never be allowed.
    Violence begets violence and even if you are not a Christian, Jews and Muslims as well are commanded by that handed down to Moses “Thou Shalt Not Kill”.
    What is wrong is that so many murderers get out of jail after too short a sentence. Of course some crimes are beyond the pale but at some point you have to forgive if you yourself wish to be forgiven. There is a judjement greater awaiting those evil ones in the end.

  8. The death sentence for murder would be discriminatory because it wouldnt include suicide bombers !

  9. It’s simple, use sodium pentathol (the truth drug) in a controlled environment. If they continue to profess their innocence then they wouldn’t have a problem submitting to it, if they’re actually innocent! Done, no more miscarriages of justice or innocents convicted. Its not rocket science.

  10. Let us not forget that the death sentence was ended after they hung an innocent man.

    NO it is a barbaric practice and not one used in civilised nations apart from parts of the USA.

    What is needed is a great reform of the justice system. If a man finds another man in bed with his wife and kills him. It is murder and he should be jailed but he is unlikely to kill again so one day he can safely be free.

    If a woman kills her violent husband, it is murder and she should get a long prison sentence. But it is unlikely that she will kill again so one day she should be set free.

    I recently read of a young man of 18 who had consenting sex with a girl of 15. He was given a custodial sentence, branded as a paedophile. and put on the sex offenders register. When he was free he married her and they are now a nice family with two children. But what if there was a death sentence?

    What of the female school teacher who had sex with a boy of 15? We have gender equality so should she have been hung?

    No, for many reasons we must NEVER bring back hanging.

  11. Absolutely not! state allowed to murder people! that realy would be sinking back into primmitive barbarisim, America has been killing people on both sides of the legal divide for as long as it has existed, and this has made them into a realy well adjusted wholesome society which is safe to live in,,,,,,, Yeh right! it is a dysfunctional nightmare of a place their police shoot hundreds of innocents per anum, they ajil people for hundreds of years, they hold others on death row for a life sentence worth of years then ritualy kill them, the lowlife of the BNP want to reintroduce it here, the last victim of Barlinnies gallows was a 19 year old who they hanged 2 days before christmass in 1960, what did his mother do to suffer that? No its as vile as those who want it!
