Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty

This group opposes the death penalty and has a list of reasons why not to support it:

There are better alternatives

The death penalty puts innocent lives at risk

Race and place determines who lives and who dies

We pay many millions for the death penalty system

Poor quality defense leaves many to the penalty of death

There is a better way to help the families of murder victims

The death penalty is applied at random

Capitol punishment goes against almost every religion

Mentally ill people are executed

The USA is keeping company with notorious human rights abusers

We are the "State." When the "State" kills, we are participants

No civilian's job description should include killing another person

This website is for the pros of the death penalty. It talks about the general public opinion, which is that 7/10 people support the death penalty for murderers, and what people support the death penalty (most groups of people favor the death penalty.)

My Stance On the Death Penalty

I am a firm believer that the death penalty is a necessary punishment. I believe in an eye for an eye, and a lot of the time someone can get away with multiple murders, be caught, and still get to live their life when they took the lives of other people. Someone should not be allowed to kill innocent people and basically know that there's not way the government will put them to death. Life without parole risks prison escapes and the murder/rape of even more innocent people. People complain about having to spend money on the death penalty, but either way we're spending money on the criminal whether it's to house/feed them or if it's to kill them.
