I would have to go with yes on this one. I think the punishment should fit the crime. If someone murders someone out of hate(jealousy) then they deserve it. All of you that have said no, do you have kids? I can say right now, if someone were to hurt my kids I would want them dead. All of the sexual predators, what about them? Hear again think about your wives, mothers, fathers, husbands, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. Age dont matter, color, gender. These are a few reasons yes.

I have to agree with ItalianGuy4US on this. And then, punishing criminals should never become revenge. Killing the murderer doesn't bring his victim back to life, so what's the use.
O and as to "an eye for an eye", what if someone was convicted for two murders, would you kill him twice? I think the penal system should concentrate on making sure murder doesn't happen (again), not on punishment.
Punishment never made a bad man good, but it could turn a good man bad.

Good and dead.


Seriously though, I have worked with ex-cons who are fully rehabilitated and great law-abiding citizens following their prison terms, so, unless you want to get into the whole "fundamental nature of man" argument, I believe that it is quite justifiable to say that punishment has made "bad" men good.
