Countries with capital punishment have more violent crime.Sushan wrote: ↑November 14th, 2021, 2:01 amI am not sure whether the family members of his victims felt same about his death. When your loved ones are harmed you expect some sort of justice, and I think the capital punishment gave them the feeling that justice was served. And I am personally stand with the concept of capital punishment because it will set example to atleast some of the criminals and also it will help the world to get rid of atleast one criminal.Sculptor1 wrote: ↑November 13th, 2021, 8:34 amNothing was gained by killing Bundy. He could have made a great guinea pig for psychological study and help to recognise the signs of emerging psychopaths.Sushan wrote: ↑November 13th, 2021, 4:48 amI agree. The infamous serial killer Ted Bundy was a known manipulator. Many of his interviewers believed what he said, though luckily he ended up in death raw. But such skilled people are quite rare. Yes, there are intelligent psychopaths who might pretend as being cured and then continue to carry on with their doings. Best thing is to keep such people detained for a certain time though it will raise human right related issues.stevie wrote: ↑November 13th, 2021, 1:26 am
Note the case of psychiatrically ill criminals. There are cases that have been diagnosed severe psychiatric disorders and but are very intelligent excellent actors nevertheless manipulating their interviewers into thinking that an applied therapy has been successful. Thus some have been set free just to take up their criminal behaviour again.
Killing him is just a primitive form of vengeance of no help to the vicitms and their families.
Countries with no capital punishment have less violent crime.
Your deterence argument does not seem to be working.
I disagree with capital ;punishment because the law is an ass, and many innocent people have died because of it.
I did not suggest experimenting on Bundy.
And for the scientific experiments, it is widely accepted that experimenting on humans against their will is unethical. This has to be applied to a criminal as well. If the court decided to keep him and use him for researches, don't you think he will gain a set of followers who will go on rioting demanding either to release him or to stop experiments on him?
There is no ethical problem with studying his behaviour, and he gave his consent whilst he lived for many interviews.
I think it is somewhat contradictory that you are willing to protect him for ethical reasons but you are not willing to preserve his life for any reason.
I think you might want to think that through a bit.
