Yes and no. You will not have any repeat offenders. However it can take years for it to actually happen, that's if they don't manage to repeal. 

It also does not deter people from committing crimes that can have capital punishment as punishment. Most notably murder.

I support hanging and firing squads for murderers, ######## traitors, spies, arsonists, Bolsheviks and merchant bankers.

They will not replace us

UAE executes more people than the United States, yet they have a higher murder rate. 

China executes more people than the United States, yet they have a lower murder rate. 

I don't think the death penalty is effective in dealing with crimes. Not only do the ends not justify the means, the means do not even accomplish the ends.

I don't think the death penalty is effective in dealing with crimes. Not only do the ends not justify the means, the means do not even accomplish the ends.

To AlphaT- it seems that the examples you gave honestly deal with the mind set of the people in these areas. Certinally the effectiveness of any method of punishment deals with the morals, and culture of how people live. If murder was a punishment for the ancient Norse it wouldn't have mattered unless they were able to find "honor" in it. Since dying a worthy warrior was the only way to be accepted into Valhalla. 

Opposed to a group of people that would think death is something to be feared. That it was the end to any existence as they know it. Wouldnt their beliefs determine the effectiveness of the punish ment. Certinally this is why it is better to use this method in some areas, and not other.

The death penalty is effective and yes, that means there is a chance for less repeating. But, of course there will always be crime somewhere for something.

I do not think they should be handed upon just any offender. The death penalty should be kept to criminals of the murder as well as attempted, assault, child predators (ect) area. I have seen cases of innocent men or women getting sent to death. So, as long as no one is getting the death penalty for anything slightly more minor or when they are not even guilty, then the death penalty is effective.
