PUBLIC OPINION > The Death Penalty Is Necessary

SodaHead Infographics 2012/04/30 16:00:00
California is getting ready to vote on whether or not to repeal capital punishment, so we took it to the broader public first, asking one basic question: Is the death penalty necessary? Though capital punishment is not practiced in most countries, it is practiced in the four most populous countries (China, India, Indonesia, and most of the U.S.), making it a complex and controversial topic. But don't worry, we broke it down for you by country, state -- and much more. Want to know how they feel about it in California? You might be surprised. Let's dive!

    Tell ya what. That 35% who think horrid criminals should live and stay in prison can now pay the costs of storing them and providing their care and feeding.

    The rest of us will pay for a bullet.

    You have grossly misunderstood the Golden Rule. It does NOT mean "eye for an eye", it means treat EVERYONE the way that YOU wish to be treated. So you would NOT execute someone, because you would never want to be executed, understand?

    Yeah I understood what your wrote, I'm just explaining that executing murderers does not follow that rule. The rule is doing to others what you would want to be done to you. Since you would not want to be executed, then you shouldn't be for executing someone, see?
