Hello and Welcome Mirrrr,
I admit I used to feel quite mixed about the DP myself until I started to think about it this way...
#1. If you are renting an apartment and break the rules of your contract, they have the right to evict you.
#2. If you are in school and break the rules of the school, they have the right to expel you.
#3. If you are at your job and break the rules, they have the right to fire you.
#4. If you are enter another country and break the rules they have the right to deport you.
Well, no single person owns this planet or the people on it. We are one great society and for any society to succeed we need to follow certain moral rules. We need to let others live their own lives as we wish to live ours. If someone is breaking those rules in such an extreme way that they are denying others their right to life and threatening to unbalance that society for others, than we have the right to evict/expel/fire or deport them from our society. They have lost the right to live on this planet with us. Thinking of it this way, the form of execution would be blasting the offenders off into space but the courts will never agree to that.
I know it sounds extreme but we have so many repeat offenders who we pay thousands and thousands of dollars for their room, board, medical, upkeep, air conditioning, television, education... every year and after they are realeased, they kill again and don't care if they go back to jail, how is this justice? It is not justice for the victims or the taxpayers who have enough trouble supporting their own families much less paying outrageous taxes to support horrendous criminals.
That is simply my opinion and I hope I have not offended you, I only offer it to you as an alternative way of thinking of the DP which made it easier for me to accept as the appropriate sentence for monsters. I do have faith in the justice system and the fact that most states require a jury to decide if the DP is appropriate. As no case is black or white, no DP sentence guidelines are. It takes actual people to hear the circumstances and decide if the criminal has lost his right to life or not and than usually a judge to hear that recommendation.
I welcome you to the forums and look forward to your posts.
