Educating people should never be the end of an active policy. You have to go to the extra mile to institutionalize such agenda. We can't just keep on educating people without a clear working policy, because having no additional policy defeats the purpose as now, any form of education can just enter one ear and go out the other. Such as having a loose security, there is a higher chance of the rules being neglected.

War is very much different from mass murder. Mass murder is a crime against humanity whereas, as the human race, we have accepted the fact that there is no omniscient world legislative and executive government that is why we cannot subdue the sovereignty of other countries. Hence, if countries want to go to war, then we can't stop them. Other countries can sanction them but that doesn't really stop a heated war. That is why, we instead have created a standard on war: the rules of war. For countries that disobey the rules of war, then the international criminal court is there to punish the governments of these countries, as a judiciary body. For countries with crossing interests, we have the international court of justice.

Jails, on the other hand, aren't meant to rob you of all your rights. Even in jail, you still have the right to live. Being in prison is meant to be a form of corrective justice.

Very educated people still murder, it's psychological problems that cannot be educated away. There will always be murderers omactive.

That's why we need to educate people so that they won't murder people. War is different because then it's mass murder

We kill those people so that they won't kill more people.
In France there are many people who committed crime and they don't have to go to jail because of overcapacity of the jail. Imprisoning the murderer will not be a long term solution since most of them are life sentenced.

imprisoning them in max security would accomplish the same thing; at a fraction of the cost of a death penalty case.....

We kill them to make sure they can never hurt somebody again.

We should imprison these people. I don't support any killing ever unless it is in a war against someone doing something horrible
