New Zealand to reintroduce the death penalty as a form of punishment to criminals.

The reason for me making this petition is to express my feeling on the subject and hopefully get support. 

1,188 people were executed in the US from 1977 through 2009, primarily by means of lethal injection. Most death penalty cases involve the execution of murderers although capital punishment can also be applied for treason, espionage, and other crimes.

capital punishment is important tool for preserving law and order, deters crime, and costs less than life imprisonment. it is retribution or "an eye for an eye" and can honor the victim, it can also help grieving families, and ensures that the perpetrators of heinous crimes never have an opportunity to cause future tragedy.

While the evidence tells me that the death penalty does little to deter crime, I believe there are some crimes–mass murder, the rape and murder of a child so heinous that the community is justified in expressing the full measure of its outrage by meting out the ultimate punishment. On the other hand, the way capital cases were tried in Illinois at the time was so rife with error, questionable police tactics, racial bias, and shoddy lawyering, that 13 death row inmates had been exonerated - Barack Obama President US 2009 to date – The Audacity of Hope 2006

Personally have always voted for the death penalty because I believe that people who go out prepared to take the lives of other people forfeit their own right to live. I believe that that death penalty should be used only very rarely, but I believe that no-one should go out certain that no matter how cruel, how vicious, how hideous their murder, they themselves will not suffer the death penalty. - Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister UK 1979 -1990
