death penalty
« on: June 24, 2018, 02:20:47 PM »
well theres a surprise. A majority of people want the enforcement of the death penalty to continue.

Asked to choose between a life sentence or the death penalty for those convicted of serious crimes, a huge majority of respondents -- 80.5% -- preferred the death penalty. A life sentence was the choice of 18.86%, while 0.64% were uncertain or had no comment.

Asked whether the death penalty supports people's faith in the Thai justice system, 85.29% said "yes"; 12.07% said "no"; and 2.64% were uncertain or had no comment.

Another large majority -- 79.05% -- believe the death penalty is a deterrent to crime. Just 15.83% said it does not affect the crime rate, 2.88% said it actually increases it, and 2.24% were uncertain or had no comment.

Asked whether the death penalty should continue to be enforced, an overwhelming majority -- 92.49% -- agreed and 7.51% disagreed. Those who oppose the death penalty believe it does not lead to a drop in crime and that a life sentence is a better option.

Asked what type of crime warrants the death penalty, 54.45 mentioned rape-murder; 23.95% cited repeated offences of serious crimes such as murder and rape; 16.68% premeditated murder; 2.42% drug offences; 0.95% terrorism; 0.86% corruption; and 0.69% were uncertain or had no comment.

ignorance does not help your post one bit but it probably says an awful lot about you.

I prefer the Philipines system of execution at the point of crime. It saves a lot of expensive lawyers and judges, not to mention prison accommodation.

yes it's on again mr. tum, wish they would make there mind up.

More than 8,000 people have been killed since you know who took office in only eight months, most were drug users killed by mysterious gunmen with authorities calling it vigilantes or gang members silencing informants.

we are all programmed
but some malfunction at times. although you don't really need to be, just drop the subject into GOOGLE as in this case " Philipines + Death penalty " scrape a few words up from your reply, rearange them into a sentence, there you have your reply to the post. not only do you increase your own knowledge, you also push the forum forward in the terms of conversation/discussion.

unless it's a smart alec being spiteful who in turn only hurt themselves
