Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth would be ideal but that will never happen so I will have to do with our current system.

That's not radical or fascist at all! Radicals like you should be kept out of power at all costs.

See that Boeing 747 that just flew over Honolulu? That's the joke, going right over your head.

I also think rape should be punishable by death under certain circumstances (rape of a child for example)

Situations where there is little room for doubt among child rape, deadly arson, serial killings and terrorism. I don't want to see treason punishable by death when there are orange clowns in control of the White House to abuse it.

Murder
Treason
Mutiny
Sedition

Inclined to say the death penalty for treason, mutiny, and sedition, being crimes against the state, should be reserved for military use only.

Treason should be in life in prison without parole

The death penalty, should be for acts that cause death

I consider myself opposed to the death penalty in nearly all cases, but I believe it's the only appropriate punishment in the following cases:

- Crimes against humanity (reserved for dictators such as Pol Pot, Stalin, Hitler, etc)
- major war criminals (such as the Nazi officials who were executed after WWII)
- Terrorists who are responsible for mass casualty attacks (9/11, the November 2015 Paris attacks, etc)


Since most of these would be handled by military courts, I favor abolishing the death penalty for civilians.

Seriously, though:

high treason and exceptionally heinous violent crimes, maybe once a year in all of the US on average.

and/or

- First-degree murder (i.e., any intentional murder that is willful and premeditated with malice aforethought)
- Felony murder (i.e., murder in the commission of another felony, such as robbery, kidnapping or carjacking)

- Terrorism (i.e., premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets, or providing material support to accomplish such)
- High treason (i.e., levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies)

I can't imagine it'd get used very much, and that's the way it should be. Executions should, as Dead0Man says, be very rare, making national news. Also, it must only be used in cases where the accused has already accepted and plead to be guilty (of the crimes obviously, not whether the crimes were right or wrong).



To opponents of the death penalty, what do you think should've happened to Adolf Hitler after World War II? Genuinely curious. I see the death penalty as the only option. Staying in prison indefinitely is too inhumane and risks the chance that he might escape (don't mean to generalize but Nazis tend to be master escape artists, based on what we saw happen during the 40s, also we must mention that Hitler would have millions of devoted followers probably willing to die for him).
