What I believe and what actually happens are two different things.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 5/24/04 - 12:58:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
I believe everyone has the right to life, and the right to live free of violence and crime. But that's Utopia, that would never actually happen in a world full of humans that always need to feel powerful.

I believe that all people get what they deserve and as far as criminals who have commited rape or murder, they need to be treated as horribly as they treated the victim. If someone killed my little sister i would surely kill them in return and if i had to be sentenced to death because of killing him than i would understand as well...

Not all criminals should be treated the same, especially in this country where there are thousands of criminals sitting in cells that are innocent.

"I believe everyone has the right to life, and the right to live free of violence and crime. But that's Utopia, that would never actually happen in a world full of humans that always need to feel powerful."

No you're wrong, that will never happen because nature does not work that way and such a situation is logically impossible.

life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, isn't it?

Yes, I believe everyone has a right to fair and humane treatment.

15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 5/24/04 - 1:33:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, unless they piss me off.

I think the word "humane" is kind of funny. We try to say that we are better than we actually are.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 12:05:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, everything on Earth should be treated fairly and humanely, not just humans.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 12:06:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
that would mean no animals in captivity or for food use then?

That is funny.And my answer is no,i believe in treating people the way you would want to be treated and in a perfect world,always getting back what you deserve,but it doesn't happen,so you have to make laws and punishments for those who deserve it.

15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 12:33:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, actually I don't. Not everyone.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 12:33:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
isn't that part of fair treatment?
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 1:05:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
^Me? True,i guess you could say fair and humane do not go hand in hand then? So,yes and no.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 10/13/04 - 5:19:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
they have a right to it. but they lose that right by doing something stupid, such as killing someone.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 11/17/04 - 10:37:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, everything, in all situations.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 11/18/04 - 4:28:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes of course they do
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 11/24/04 - 4:54:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah..just treat them like they treat others...

Hey wait...this poses a dilemma!
Should an executioner be executed and by whom?

I agree with liz. Those who take this from others, it should be taken away from them. Animals are not human so there is no reason to treat them humanly. Now I don't go for abusing them but they shouldn't have preference over humans. God made the animals for man-kind not visa-versa and that means for food too.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 1/8/05 - 8:59:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, as long as they treat others fairly and humanely if that makes sense :S
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 1/9/05 - 10:32:33 AM EST (GMT-5)
Everyone, regardless of who they are or what they've done deserve to be treated humanely.

This is just a a general comment, but it confuses me that zealously religious people are usually the ones who are for harsher sentences, capital punishment, gettting the "bad guys" etc etc. If you believe that God knows all and ultimately judges everyone as to give them what they deserve why would you be so concerned with strict punishment in this world? It seems to me that your only concern would be to protect others and leave the guilty person in God's hands.

I like the fact that most people said yes to this, yet more than half think that the electric chair is justified

Everyone deserves fair and humane treatment no matter who you are

Rights are only how people, as a group or populace, mutually agree how to treat each other.

E.G., if Americans decide that humans in general should be treated "humanely", then Americans are then answerable if they don't. But Americans can't enforce that viewpoint on others.

There are no universal rights intrinsic to all people (except possibly the theoretical "inalienable" rights).

15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 2/17/05 - 7:39:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes...until they do something to forsake it.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 2/17/05 - 7:40:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, unless they do something to revoke that treatment.
