Capital Punishment: Cruel, Senseless and Immoral

Capital punishment cannot be justified. 

The act of taking someone's life as a punishment is cruel, hypocritical, devoid of sense and totally immoral. 

There are too many cases of the wrong person being convicted and there are too many cases, such as Bruce Ward's, where mental health assistance is required. 

Don't support this madness. Talk about it, educate people about it. No country is civilised if it institutionally supports and perpetrates murder.

  2. Capital punishment serves no useful purpose and is wrong because.

    Innocent people have been executed fact!

    How do you tell a child it is wrong to kill (other than self defence) What do you say to them when they say ‘but the state kills people’

    It does not deter criminals.

    It traumatises and punishes the innocent families and friends of the person executed.

    It has profound long term psychological effects on those who are ordered to carry out the executions.

    An executed person has no right of appeal from the grave.

    It offers no chance of redemption.

    Old git.
