This Pickton man who slaughtered 50 people, does he deserve to live?
I don't know, see this is a tough line to cross. Does gov. have the right to take life?
Quite frankly, my anger speaking about this man, I think he should be put to death. He is dispicable.
To me its the degree and frequency of the murder that makes me wonder if they deserve death or not.
Its not allowed in Canada now, but our neighbours south do it.
I don't know, to me:
Eye for an eye is wrong. It sounds ok to say: You murder, we murder you.
So does that logic apply to: You rape, we rape you. You steal, we steal from you. We are supposed to take the high road.
Religious people are sort of split on this too. The pope and other religious figures say death penalty is wrong. Other religious figures say its acceptable.
Now, to me I believe if someone can be locked up away from the public, in high security, for life, thats fine. But if they are high risk, and are part of a huge crime org. or have been responsible for thousands of death, my thoughts on it change.
I was happy Saddam was killed. But someone who murders once who is killed, I think its wrong...
What do you think. I'll try to make the poll correct. For now, I choose: In Certain rare circumstances, death penalty can be used.
