How do you feel about the above statement?
In my opinion people who are pro death penalty have a much lower regard for human life and also place much much higher on the sociopath scale than the
people who don't believe in capital punishment.
These two factors combined meant that the average pro death penalty supporter was much more likely to commit a serious violent crime, including
murder, than the people who are not supporters of it.
I firmly believe that if we can turn people's minds away from violent retribution it will also lower the murder and serious violent crime rate.
The only problem is, those who are pro death penalty almost never listen to the ideas of others and would almost certainly never let themselves be
educated as to why it is wrong.
Basically if you remove the violence from the top, it trickles down and people end up losing certain sociopathic traits and violent tendencies.
The death penalty actually does the opposite to what it's supporters claim.
