Crime and Punishment: Is capital punishment the answer to reducing crime ?

No, capital Punishment is not the answer to reducing crime. I personnaly am against capital punishment because it is murder at the hands of the state, which is still a crime in the eyes of God.

Just look at states that have capital punishment, 38 states of the USA and the federal government allow capital punishment. Only recently did they stop the executions of minors.

The 12 countries with the most executions in 2004 were:
China - 3,400+
Iran - 159+
Vietnam - 64+
USA - 59
Saudi Arabia - 33+
Pakistan - 15+
Kuwait - 9+
Bangladesh - 7+
Egypt - 6+
Singapore - 6+
Yemen - 6+
Belarus - 5+

These countries, apart from the USA, are not the most the most respected of countries internationally due to their from of government or lack of respect for Human Rights. This shows the kind of countries that use the death penalty and crime is not abating in them!
