I was thinking about the death penalty, recently. I know that in many countries, especially in Europe, have abolished the death penalty.
But here in Taiwan, we still retain it. And a few weeks ago, many human rights groups began to appeal to people in Taiwan abolished the death penalty.
To be honest, the abolition of the death penalty is no great difference for me, I may be a neutral... bias to retain it! :hmm:
Long-term observations by the experts, the death penalty seems to placate the feelings of the victims' families a larger role on the society as a whole and not a positive feature. I know that killing a criminal does not deter others from crime, but we cannot ignore the feelings of the victims' families...
Perhaps some people feel that with the death penalty is a symbol of backwardness, but I have put forward different views, because this is link to the different religious beliefs, traditional knowledge and the whole society.
We have a idiom: "A murderer must repay with his life". I myself cannot accept a very large killer and evil, no human person, in doing after so many bad things, do not pay the crimes he committed it.
I am not in favor of killing, if Taiwan do not have the death penalty, then I would say, continue to be no death penalty!
But Taiwan is now with the death penalty, I think Taiwan hasn' t made preparation for the change yet. So I support to retain the death penalty.
As for me ... this topic is really complicated, it is related to human life, I do not know which is the right choice and feel both repeal and retain is the right one. no123
Please tell me whether you support the death penalty or not!! I really want to know everyone's thoughts, no matter you support or oppose it.
Of course, do not forget to tell why you support and why the opposition!!
