    Default do YOU think it's a civic duty to watch the execution of death penatlies?

    Wouldnt it make sense to have people face this responsibility rather than avoid it?

    I think we should get rid of the death penalty instead.

    At least in America, enacting the death penalty costs way more than life imprisonment. In any case, I don't think cost should be the top priority when it comes to taking a human life.

    No. I think when the public watches executions it becomes some kinda sick entertainment thing.

    Why/how does it cost more?

    The Death Penalty Information Center study found that death penalty costs can average $10 million more per year per state than life sentences. Increased costs include higher security needs and guaranteed access to an often lengthy pardon and appellate process.

    So, really, we need to remove the ability to be pardoned/appealed.

    Before that makes me sound like I actually believe that, I am going to say that ending a person's life who has committed a crime worthy of having that choice given is not the worst punishment they could be given.

    What do you mean?

    I dont think anyone should be compelled to watch anything.
