  1. So I was thinking about this today (because I'm morbid like that) and I was wondering what you guys thought. Is having a death penalty justified? Do we, as humans, have the right to decide when another person's life should be ended? I personally believe in the death penalty, I believe it to be a necessary social device to maintain control and order, but I also think it should be a sentence used sparingly at best (i.e. no going all crazy Texan). It should be reserved for those criminals who have committed crimes of the worst sort: crime against humanity; war crimes; genocide; torture; jus cogens violations, etc. Adolf Hitler-esque criminals that is. I think it's incredibly unfair that war lords and torturers get away scot free. Even recently when Pinochet was convicted for countless counts of torture against his own citizens, the death penalty was not even entertained. European society finds it to be too "barbaric." So what do you think? Should there be a death penalty? If not, why? If so, why and to what extent?
