If a hot woman rapes me I would like her to be alive so I can continue to have seks.
In Saudi Arabia they cut people's hands off for stealing, and there's not as much stealing. Harsher punishments do lower crime rates.
It's just an emotional argument. Justice isn't an emotional concept, it's a reasoned concept. Serial criminals looking to make a name for themselves would rather go out in a blaze of glory as an end to their saga than go to jail and rot. Death penalty becomes an incentive.
Besides that, prisons are expensive because they're overcrowded (in the US at least) with pot smokers and whatever cheao crime they can turn into cheap labour.
I'm just sayin for those scumbag pedafiles (the whole woman rape cases to me are always sketchy) but like no shit scum of the earth I'd say let the father or mother of the child who was raped or kidnapped be the one to take the scumbags life. if not just put a round thru his or her head or public hanging.
As with anything else, there are degrees and there are also valid reasons not to use the death penalty.
First, there is no research showing that the death penalty has a better deterrent effect than other punishments
Second, the death penalty actually costs more that prison. There is research into this.
Third, there are people wrongfully convicted. If someone spends years in jail for a crime they didn't commit, saying sorry doesn't make it better, but at least they can try to have a life. If you kill someone for a crime they didn't commit, there is no I'm sorry big enough to make it better.
Finally, do you execute anyone convicted of murder no matter the circumstances? What about if it was unintentional? Does that extend to people convinced of manslaughter? What about men convicted of Europe because they has sex and then the woman regretted it the next morning or lies to save her reputation? (I know that does not happen often, but it does happen) There has to be a threshold at which you feel someone deserves to die, how do you decide where exactly that threshold is?
