    *the more you know... do do do doo*

    I change my vote to locking them up for life w/o a chance for parole.

    ...however death sentances might go a long way to helping stop people from commiting the crimes in the first place, which could actually save a lot more lifes.

    I believe there have been many studies about the deterrent effect that the death penatly has on crime rates. If I'm not mistaken, most of the studies show that there is no empirical evidence to support the theory that the death penalty acts as a deterrent.

    Some studies even support the idea that violent crime (such as murder) can increase (albeit slightly), as the death penalty teaches us that it is ok to kill out of revenge.

    OK, now I just feel dumb. I knew I had seen that recently somewhere in these forums, but for the life of me could not find it. And here it was in the very thread in which I was posting.

    :duh:
