In the spirit set by the "one bullet" thread I thought I'd get your views on this issue.

Did you know that some American states still have electrocution and the gas chamber as a means of executing people?

Personally I'm dead against it.

I am for the death penalty in cirumstances where the verdict is beyond doubt.

Like the Guildford Four and Birmingham Six?

I can see your point.

It is a very difficult subject and not one that can be easily debated on a mb.

For my part I would support the re-introduction of the death penalty however, there would need to be strict guidelines in place.

I would only support it in cases where the evidence was 100% accurate and backed up by solid forensics etc. Not circumstantial evidence or witness testimony.

It's just my opinion, if accuracy could not be guaranteed then I would not support it .

I just can't justify in my own mind that convicted Paedophiles and child killers should be allowed to live.

True again it is a grey area.

But again if they have wilfully molested/killed a child and they are sentanced to life imprisonment then what purpose does it serve for them to be locked away and not killed?.

Technically you can still get the death penalty in this country for starting a fire in a naval dockyard.

Since the film Green Mile I have always had an interest in the electric chair. (Interest does not extend to a concerning length)
