As I was studying your response regarding second chances, I would classify those with obvious mental disabilities separate from those all other murder cases. However, I have always suspected that murder or the deliberate actions leading to another's death constitutes the abuse of any innate human right and this should include privileges such as second chances. I define second chance as the murderer not being sentenced to a capital punishment (put to death) but obviously some kind of consequences must follow and do. Besides the killer, regardless of their mental state, will have to live with themselves at least as long as the victim ceases to exist and this I can imagine can be burdensome on the individual's conscience, if they have one.

I argue that this matter pertaining to second chance must be granted to all beings and this is because the human species is imperfect as every individual makes mistakes. We need second chances for without we would not have the basic conditions to grow or evolve. No second chances would lead to a world ruled by force, fear, paranoia, further violence, and dishonesty. Thank you

only a "2nd" chance. Don't let it exceed that number because a wrong doing that is repeated after a reminder is already an abuse of the opportunity.

I am on the fence with this one, before I started studying psychology, I would have said murderers do not! however since then I have learnt there are three types of murderers. there's the schizophrenics, who only kill whilst having an episode and it's normally because the think theyve been told to etc, normally they are lovely people but when the schizophrenia takes hold it's completely out of their hands. There was a case in America of a guy called Cody, he was a model student loved his family but when he got into his 20's he started suffering from schizophrenia although thehvdidnt know that's what it was, one night his mother drove him to the hospital but theycturned him away, that night he killed his mother and her boyfriend as he thought they were trying to kill him. since then he's being given medication to keep it under control and now he is completely horrified bubwhat he did, he loved her dearly....
The second type are the impulsive killers, they tend to only kill once and regret it afterwards. They often have a brain anomaly in their pre-frontal cortex (the front bit) which means they have difficulty controlling their behaviour and often respond violently to situations which make them angry, you must oftennsee this cases in domestic violence etc again because of their brain anomaly it's notnstrictly their fault
the third type are the psychopaths, these are the serial killers, the can control their behaviour and don't feel empathy (it's hard to givebthese a second chance) however many people have a gene called the MAOA gene and also another brain anomaly, when these are combined it can result in not being able to feel empathy and also an obsession with power. these people tend tockill once and love the power they have and because they can't Care they do it again and again! however having these genetics etc does not determine you'll be a murderer, childhood upbringing is key! you'll often find that serial killers had horrible childhoods

so it's hard to say people are truly to blame for their actions, these are even being used as defence in court now, ...

depends on how much you screw up and go over the limit but not everyone deserves a 2nd chance, especially those who do not give a 2nd chance to their victims.

let us be very basic.. for example a murdered is given a second chance to continue his life outside jail . but it results in another life.. will the second chance be pertinent? no . never. mistakes are the proof that human mankind is trying. so there should be second chance given but not in all respect and situation. it completely depends on the situation.

Not everybody deserves a second chance. You should obviously be given a chance to rectify yourself. But if your mistakes are severe enough to be forgiven, giving you a second chance would be foolish and could result in some blunder as well. Second chances hold good for not so serious mistakes.

Certainly situational. As we saw yesterday, Tsarniev was given the death penalty for the Boston bombings. It would be very difficult to prove that he would deserve a second chance for what he did. On the other hand, less serious offenses may deserve second chances.

I agree that it is situational and that most people do deserve a second chance, but since the post specifies everyone, in order to agree I feel you would have to be of the opinion that everyone, including serial killers, rapists and child molesters deserve a second chance. As I feel there are crimes that are severe enough, and people whose risk to recommit is high enough that they forfeit any second chance. This means that while most people deserve an opportunity to learn from their mistakes, I have to vote that not everyone does.

ii think yes, but it honestly depends on the situation. a cheater, a stupid teenager, an alchoholic, all people like them deserve a second chance. a serial killer coming off of a ten kill spree? i think not. it depends on the situation and the person.

I see the merit in that. I hadn't considered people who honestly didn't know what they were doing was wrong. I won't change my vote because there are still people who do not deserve a second chance, but that is a very good point.

We all did stupid stuff when we were younger. Then we were taught against that. I think that it depends on whether or not that person was taught right from wrong as a child. How do you expect him to know right from wrong if he was never taught? If that is the case then I think that they need (not deserve) a second chance. yes there is still jail time for the wrong that he did though.

Now if the person knew that what they were doing is wrong and yet they did it anyway just because they want to. then they do not deserve a second chance. But at the same time for the victim or friends and family of the victim, it brings peace to everyone to forgive. Which will help out everyone. So does everyone deserve a second chance. no. Is it a good thing to give everyone a second chance. Most of the time yes.

While most people deserve a chance to redeem themselves, there are some things that there is no way to be redeemed from. Once you have killed someone or raped someone, there is no way to undo the damage you have done. Your victim will never get back what you took from them, so why do you deserve a second chance?
