    Well, the way I see it is that if you behead or otherwise execute a murderer or a terrorist the chances of him him-or her- committing those acts in the future is of a very low order of probability.

    By the same token, amputating the hand of a thief is probably going to drastically reduce his chances of stealing again, especially if he knows that if he is caught a second time he's going to lose his other hand.

    The added bonus is that when others see these punishments being meted out for offenders, how eager are they going to be to follow in those person's footsteps? Stopping the crime from occurring in the first place is much more preferable to cleaning up the mess after it is committed.

    Barbaric? Yes.
    Effective? Most definitely.

    Sitting in prison for life is more of a punishment than the death penalty.
    The DP has not stopped criminals from killing others.

    Perhaps a day or two in the Spanish Boot or a weekend on the Rack will help them adjust their attitudes, as opposed to simply killing them. There are many, many options available for daily 'correction' that would leave the offender begging for death.

    I think it should exist and be applied but provided there is solid proof. On the down side I can see Left wing groups executing people for waving a Confederate flag or not liking Indian food while they let killers loose for good behaviour.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    World 3 Year Old Girl Gang Raped and Beheaded



    The savagery perpetrated in the gang-rape and beheading of a three-year-old girl in the Indian city of Jamshedpur has evoked a wave of collective horror
    , leaving many shuddering with fright and prompting even some Bollywood celebs to join in expressing their outrage.



    The little girl was first gang-raped and then her head was dismembered from the body. Her mutilated torso was found stuffed in a plastic bag and dumped in the bushes four kilometres away from the scene of the incident on 30 July, media reports said.

    Bollywood celebrities, including Actor Farhan Akhtar and actress Anushka Sharma, have lashed out on social media over the fact that one of accused, who has a criminal record of kidnapping children in 2015, was granted bail.

    The incident has left the people outraged at the whole act of brutality, with many demanding capital punishment for the rapists.

    The girl was kidnapped from Jharkhand state’s Tatanagar railway platform on 25 July while being fast asleep beside her mother, who was with a male companion, Monu Mondal, with whom she eloped, deserting her husband.

    The woman later suspected him of being involved in the gruesome rape and murder of her baby girl. On Thursday, 1 August, police confirmed the little girl was gang-raped by Mondal and two of his friends.

    All the three accused in the case, including the male companion of the woman, have been arrested following an audit of the CCTV footage from the railway platform. Two of the accused, in their 30s, have purportedly admitted their crime to the police.

    This sort of thing is common in India.

    Fine by me if there is 100% certainty that the accused is guilty.

    Russians urge reinstatement of death penalty after brutal murder of 9-year-old girl


    The murder of a school girl in the city of Saratov has become such shock for Russia that politicians and the public united in calls to lift the moratorium on death penalty to punish child killers and pedophiles.




    9-year-old Lisa went missing on her way to school on Wednesday, with hundreds of volunteers joining the search for the child. The girl’s body was discovered the next day, hidden at a garage of a 35-year-old man, who later confessed of a murder.


    The news caused uproar in the city on the Volga River as people took to the streets and blocked a police car, in which they thought the detained suspect was transported. The crowd demanded him being handed over them to be lynched on the spot, forcing the officers to employ pepper spray.


    MP for the ruling United Russia party, Evgeny Primakov, was first to suggest that “capital punishment must be brought back” as he commented on chilling reports from Saratov. The deputy said he couldn’t understand why should the money of taxpayers, including the parents of the victim, be used to fund the criminal’s stay in prison.



    He was backed by a host of other parliamentarians, including LibDem leader, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who expressed belief that “most people in Russia want the return of death penalty because they see it as an opportunity of fair vengeance. That’s how human psychology works.”
    The head of the Fair Russia party compared the killing a child to an act of terrorism, saying that “a capital punishment would be a fair response to such a crime.”



    The State Duma’s page on Russia’s VK social network that launched a poll, in which over 121,000 people took part. 80% of them said that they support the reinstatement of capital punishment for child murderers and pedophiles.



    The parliament representatives later clarified that the survey wasn’t ordered by the MPs, but was solely the initiative of the SMM team. “It was just an online poll, but the media made it look like it was a nationwide referendum,” they said.But the call for such a referendum was voiced on Change.org where a petition, urging the organization of a plebiscite on reinstating death penalty already gathered over 4,700 signatures.
    Eventually, the Kremlin had to comment on the possible lifting of the moratorium on capital punishment, with presidential press-secretary, Dmitry Peskov, clarifying that “the issue isn’t being discussed.”A moratorium on the death penalty was introduced in Russia in 1997 when it joined the Council of Europe. The last death sentence in the country was enforced a year before that.



    Russians urge reinstatement of death penalty after brutal murder of 9-year-old girl 13 X 2019.


    Capital punishment may not stop murder but it's a major deterrent which brings down the rate of murder.

    I'm very much in favor of the death penalty as a punishment for the most horrendous crimes, like murder, violent rape, pedophilic acts, treason, and terror. The tradition of Western judicial thought is based on the principle that the punishment awarded to the perpetrator should be both in proportion as well as greater in magnitude to the crime committed against the victim(s). For example, if a person is convicted of burning down someone's house, they are forced to replace the house (by means of financial compensation) as well as doing prison time for the arson. Never should the punishment be deemed as less harsh as the crime itself. If and when that occurs, it is considered a travesty of justice. So if someone murders another person, or damages another person for life (either physically or psychologically), reason and instinctual sense of fairness dictates that the perpetrator should receive a sentence at least as harsh.

    In the case of murder, it's not really possible to surpass the seriousness of the crime itself. Some would say life in prison is a worse fate than immediate execution, but I doubt that. If it was, we would see a lot more suicides among people serving long-term prison sentences, and among people sitting for years on death row. And even if serving life in prison was worse than execution, what purpose does it serve to needlessly draw out the human suffering? Similarly, one may reinstate physical torture prior to execution for the perpetrators of the most heinous crimes, but again, it wouldn't serve any real, beneficial purpose, and only taint our own nature and spirit with that of the perpetrators of such crimes. The convicted being given a clean cut from our World, without tarnishing the People left behind, would be preferable for everyone.
