I know, I’m not saying it’s a crime deterrent. I’m just saying that some people don’t deserve to live in prison.
I know, I was saying take away some of them, but thinking about it, idk. Ik I’m flip-flopping my ideas, but I’m not as for the death penalty as I was basically like two days ago. I’m not against because killing people is wrong now, but yeah i’d rather lower the risk of innocent people getting killed as much as possible, but I’m still for the death penalty.
Is it? What’s the benefit of keeping child molestors and school shooters? I’ll admit, as I said, I’m certainly more ambivalent about the death penalty atm than I was not so long ago. But I don’t see any societal benefit to keeping those people alive. Although now I’m not really advocating for killing all of them, honeslty now I think the death penalty should be used less (maybe use it only for big cases), there isn’t any soceital benefit in really keeping those people. Very few people are like “well now that I just murdered ten people, I think I’ll be good for the rest of my life,” or “I got to touch 3 kids, I think I’ll stop now.” If people think they can get away with it, chances are they’ll do it. (Honestly, child-rape shouldn’t be given the death penalty. Chances are people who do that will be killed or ruined in prison anyway.)
