I feel at a certain level of criminal activity and with a certain level of humanity, capital punishment is the way to go. It would obviously have to be especially heinous of a crime or crimes to merit such a response, such as murdering dozens, extreme war crimes, or literal genocide. Mostly the murdering dozens bit, genocide is relatively uncommon.
At a certain point, rehabilitation is not going to work and holding them for life presents too much of a risk to the lives of the people guarding them or innocents should they escape.

Why my nation has capital punishment can be summed up in two words: hate crime.

I have a thriving economy. We're recovering slowly from our second recession.

What is that supposed to mean? Crime is crime.

Having visited the United Nations Detention Unit, which is one of only two facilities in the world used exclusively to detain those suspected of war crimes and crimes against humanity who are awaiting trial, I might as well add a little to the discussion.

People who have committed war crimes and crimes against humanity have very different backgrounds and have committed those crimes under varying circumstances. It would be too simpe to say that all of those people cannot be rehabilitated. Not trying to would also go against against one of the main principles of international criminal law, which is to respect everyone's human rights in a judicial process, including the rights of the accused and sentenced. I am aware that this is a sensitive issue for many people.

Additionally, capital punishment is a relatively easy way out. Once you know you are going to die, you're going to prepare for that and while the level of stress that comes with that period is initially very high, it diminishes quickly as one accepts one's faith. Ultimately, capital punishment is a relatively easy way out as one will have to live with one's crimes for a far shorter period than if one would be sentenced for life. Add to that most of those accused of grave crimes aren't exactly afraid to die and you have what looks like a severe punishment to the public at large, but actually isn't.

It is interesting to see that the SLU, according to the poll, now probably has a higher percentage of nations actively retaining capital punishment than in the real world (18%).

Saniwa and Anaaxes

Yeah, every crime is different, and I'm not saying its the only response I would take to such crimes. My main concern in this case isn't really punishing the criminal. If it proves too dangerous to let them continue living, then no I don't care if they are "properly punished", for the peace of mind of the country I would rather remove them from the equation entirely.

Anaaxes and Fr4nkenchr1st

Due to my position as a volunteer member of the UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination Team, I am on my way to Nepal now and won't be active in the next few days. I apologize for any inconvenience that may cause.
