So I was wondering everyone's views on Capital Punishment. Personally I disagree with it (ooh big shocker there! LOL!) Anyway, first and foremost, its hypocritical. The lawmakers say, hey you can't kill anyone, but if you do, we can kill you and its lawful. Secondly, its not a deterrant, obviously, people are still out there commiting crimes everyday. And last , but most certainly not least, capital punishment seems to be based on the faith that when a criminal ( a sinner) is put to death he or she will go to a hell, thus furthering his or her punishment. Well my little Christians, what if there is no hell, is death simply enough of a punisment? I certainly can't fathom that it would be. Thus, I propose we bring back torture and public humiliation (ie: the stocks). I'm absolutely serious about this. Torture would be an effective deterrant against crime, and public humiliation would also. To this, the subject of inhumanity comes up. That's the tricky part of punishing criminals. Still, I firmly believe in the torture of criminals that otherwise would be sentenced to death.
