Could you make an episode where you include a “true neutral” (a person that doesn’t form an opinion per say on the topic of politics due to lack of knowledge, but could say how they feel on the topic overall)
Regardless of whether you believe people deserve death as punishment or not, the fact remains there is no legal system that is 100% effective/correct. Thus, regardless of how the death penalty is implemented, people will be wrong convicted it will result in an innocent person being killed by the government. And this has happened numerous times throughout US history. This makes no sense, if killing an innocent person is viewed by pro-dreath penalty people as one of the worst crimes, and it is supposed to be deserving of death. It is then by their own principles that having a death penalty is wrong, as it has the result of killing innocent people.
Until the law is a blanket, and covers everyone equally, death penalty will never be lawful. Judicial review is just like murder , deciding when and where the death penalty is allowed . No ones fate should ever be in another’s hands . That goes for the defendant and the victim . The example in Michigan is not a good example considering much of the crime in Michigan is property crime, drug offenses, and gang related murder . None of these crimes are suitable for the “death penalty.” Until every murder and every life matters , the death penalty is unconstitutional.
Capital Punishment has been proven to be unsuccessful at deterring people from committing crimes.
(yes it deters some, but not enough to be statistically supportive for a pro-capital punishment argument)
Death penalty: dubious morality, dubious effectiveness as a deterrent, but most importantly, uneconomical.
You can debate its morality all day, but it costs more to judge a case and all its appeals before giving the death penalty vs. life in prison. Same effectiveness, actually lower cost. Plus, you can release someone from life in prison if they are found innocent.
To the PRODUCERS OF JUBILEE, can you please refrain from making statements with “every” or “all.” It’s something I learned in English, in questions that use those terms, true or false, they are triggers for immediately false. So I don’t believe it’s fair to ask those questions, but if you disagree I’m up for listening. I just automatically say no to all of those without really considering the question because typically all or every are far too vague thus the answer to it must be extremely vague, and we want in depth answers, to just yes or no, which is the only answer to a vague question because without specifics there is no way to defend the argument. I don’t know if you can, but if you could I’d find it more credible, thanks big fan of the series!
The death penalty cost tax payers more money vs. sentencing them to life. Death row inmates are entitled to various appeals. The justice system moves at a snails pace so it could take years for the appeals to finally go to court.
The girl (who claims to be against the death penalty) seems infuriated by the idea that the woman who set her husband on fire for molesting their daughter should get the death penalty. However in believing so, she must think the husband was indeed worthy of receiving the death penalty - only one carried out as an emotional killing rather than a lawful killing. This would indicate that she supported the death penalty in his case. My head hurts.
I dont think some of these people understand the death penalty. When your put on death row (depending on what you did) your there for a couple of years usually to become rehabilitated and you have the chance to get off death row.
There is a saying in Arabic that goes:
When u stop fearing the punishment u start breaking the law, or something like that . That does not necessarily mean that you will break the law cuz u don’t fear the punishment but it rather paves the way for u to commit a crime that u would not have committed otherwise .
Even if those people who were for the death penalty said they would vouch for their mother to receive capital punishment they are lying. you may know your mother deserves capital punishment you would not be able to.
I don’t believe in the death penalty, purely because I feel like death is just an easy way out. Also, people are falsely convicted, what if they’re put on death row, what if they don’t have a chance to prove their innocence before their time is up?
I had to really check myself while watching this because of how I was feeling about that girl. She made this really hard to watch... at first I had to keep telling myself “no, she’s just strong and opinionated” but then I realized she was just jumping down everyone’s throats and making it impossible to peacefully debate and disagree with her...
Pro death penalty. The amount of prisoners we have, the resources we have to allocate, the time we take; it's a drain on our economy. Empathy is good and all, but when there are people who are clearly guilty, with hard evidence for a very harsh crime like murder or child molestation, I don't think we should waste our scarce resources on them. I think it is a matter of determining the degree of the crime. Will they change? Is it worth it to house, feed, and rehabilitate them and will they use that or will they waste that? How much money goes to prisons in which people are there, living for free, for live. I have lived homeless, and I was privileged enough to live in Canada and in a good family homeless shelter. My family always went to church because they gave free food, we went to the food bank every month, we had to get every Government funding we could and we STILL struggled through rent every month, through having enough food, through affording school. My parents had a gambling and drinking problem, and yes it was their fault. But food and shelter is so expensive and we waste it on murderers, torturers and people who refuse to change. On people who will stay living isolated but for free for the rest of their lives, using resources so many other good people could have used, just because every one is too guilty or too "righteous" to consider possibly having a death penalty even if its only for the more serious cases.
Idk I’m inbetweeen cause yeah if he raped her daughter and lit whatever on fire and she killed him I feel like yeah no death penalty... BUT if someone killed 27 people they shouldn’t get free meals and beds and stuff... the6 should get killed
Crazy eyes: im against the death penalty...
Also crazy eyes: why should a wife that killed her daughter's rapist get time in jail?
Me: uhhh cuz she decided that someone else deserved the death penalty. She contradicted herself at that moment by siding with the wife. (Not that there was a correct side)
I don’t really know how I feel about the death penalty, but an eye for an eye and the world goes blind. I think the death penalty would have to be a punishment for only the absolute worst most heinous crimes if we have it as an option.
I’m anti-death penalty, but crazy eyes had me facepalming. And Afro senpai seems nice, but just a little too naive. This isn’t Jubilee’s fault, but damn is it frustrating to not have your argument accurately represented.
I have a long line of criminals in my family, so all I can say is if a sexual abuser is in prison they'll get one hell of a beating if not death. Same goes for women, children, and animal abusers. Let them live, because politics are strict on that.
i feel like the guy with the afro was genuinly intelligent on both a mental level b ut also an emotional level. he was not only a very elloquent speaker but he had a kind heart and was open to everyone and their ideas, and i feel that openness is a true mark of intelligence.
There's nothing wrong with the death penalty... for horrible criminals who have solid evidence around them for the crimes they have committed. I think Ted Bundy, who was sentenced to death; absolutely deserved it. I also thought Manson should have been given the injection long, long before he died. All that money at went to pay for that monster's food in prison, care for him in prison, etc. could have gone to something much better like nursing homes (our nation's nursing homes are in such a horrible state and need so much fixing) or public schools to make education better for areas with higher populations of non-white students who, on average, do not have access to the same quality education as their white peers. No! All that money that could have been used for good, went to keeping a human monster alive. He deserved to die. Also, I think child molesters belong away from the rest of society and should be exiled to live in their own village away from us all. Pedophiles are human monsters. I do not think they can change. Also, about the video; the afro guy seems very sweet, but he is so, so naive. So naive it almost hurt me to hear him speak. He's going to get his heart broken very badly by someone, I can feel it. I feel so bad for him, in a way. His positivity is sweet, but he is going to be hurt by the world without a doubt. The world is cruel, and he'll find that out.
I do have mixed feelings on the subject, but only because I think those who have committed Heinous crimes deserve to live the rest of their lives in jail. And if by chance that person was wrongfully convicted they can have the chance to rebuild their lives rather than death
I loved what that guy with the afro had to say, he seems like a visionary. How can we say "people deserve to die" for any crimes they've committed? And what that lady was saying is true, you really do have to look at their upbringing and who they are to be able to fully empathize. There are so many situations like people of 13 years of age getting into fights and it ending up in murder, those people's brains are not even fully developed yet! Not to mention, do we really want to live in a society where the law decides who it thinks deserves to die? How is that just? That guy was right when he was appalled that we as a society can say "our mothers deserve to die under these circumstances" and not even flinch. It is natural to feel that that is so wrong, because they are whole human beings and even if they committed a crime like that, we should try to treat them that way and work with them to make sure they don't do that again while also respecting their life. We should do better than what the murderers did. I don't think we should be treating people how we are in our prison system. I recommend watching documentaries about their treatment to better understand.
The female has been in to too many debates and clearly her debators hasn't been able to hush her up.
She's very surprised that she hasn't changed no ones opinion, or shut them up.
I personally don't believe in the death penalty. But legally... that woman that killed the man deserves jail time. You still killed a person. You literally went so low in life that you killed someone. I understand why, I am a rape victim myself, but taking a person's life isn't nothing, compared to watching them get the time they deserve and possibly the others beat him for such things. They don't like rapist in prison..
While I understand the whole "put yourself in their shoes argument" its not reality. If someone in a relationship cheated, lied about something terrible and/or abused you would give them a second chance and risk the same thing (that will most likely happen again) a second time?
Now if we talk about who someone killed/hurt other people would you risk, not only, your personal well-being or someone you care about for the offender to have a second chance? That's the real question because that's the reality of the situation. The offender clearly showed they don't care about other people's well-being why would you risk the same thing again?
The funky hairdo guy is quite emotionally driven. The reasoning by the woman is very unsatisfactory. The reasoning by the man in the suit and black full sleeve are very compelling. Besides, I don't think that these people can imagine what horrors the victims' families go through. So, I suggest they try empathising more
+lukan vlogs I never said the accused is innocent, although 1 in 25 people who sit on death row are innocent of the crimes in which they were accused. But, on a moral stance, I believe it's wrong to punish innocent family members for what their relative did.
Then again, I'm not against the death penalty for any moral reasons.
