They certainly deserve punishment but their punishment need not be the death penalty. What does that do for them, for the kids and for the parents?

............................................................................

First of all, I respect that you have your own beliefs on this topic, but I would like to add the following ...........

but their punishment need not be the death penalty.
For every two kidnappers taken out of commission you will find at least 3 new recruits.


That may be true and the same could be true if you just jail these people, and maybe even double the number of perpetrators .........

That is not a one way argument ........................

I fail to see any gain or forward movement with this idea  .....................

If you cling to that old-fashioned belief that the threat of getting killed for a crime deters people from committing crimes then I wonder why so many other crimes go unpunished, and often so with the authorities looking the wrong way?


Now sadly you go back to sweeping generalizations ................

Will you ever stick to the facts ...........

And if you need to introduce something new or wider then at least contribute some evidence and not just hearsay ...........

I consider life penalty in a real prison(not the holiday resorts style German prisons) a heavier punishment than a bullet. Way too fast.
........................................................................................


The cost of keeping someone in prison for their natural life is a negative and cruel thing ........

A losing situation .........


This wasted money would be better spent on education and health especially for the rural poor ........

On top of that once a perpetrator has been despatched his parts can be harvested to help the living ...........

Things such as heart, lungs, kidneys and eyes ...............

The remaining parts of the carcass should be donated to the local zoo as animal feed ..........

A win-win situation ...............



A bit like a good dump ............

Flush the toilet afterwards ................

The death penalty had been an effective instrument of all kinds of absolute despots (Emperors, Kings, etc.)

to keep their people in fear to deter any kinds of protests, uprise and revolts.

I thought China (and others) have left those dark times behind ?

I thought civilized people will succeed over barbarism ?

Maybe we have still a long way to go.
