I'm against the death penalty because we don't really know about what's going on in the Soul of a murderer.

We don't know everything about Life  and the universum. How can we say that it is legal to execute?

wether we don't really know everything about the World, Life and other Things like Nature and ourselves.

How can we say that a murderer is absolutely healthy?

In the end it was a big mistake to execute murderers.

It is also not fair to execute murderers who said sorry for the their things they have done- because a personality is changed (MAYBE)

and if you execute a murderer who said (always and always) sorry - We don't really know if he's really a better person now and that is why it would be not fair to execute them because he is agood person , again.

The word justice has just about lost all it's meaning in the U.S.A. because of the cowardice that does not allow an eye for an eye.

Actually we don't know if murderers or anyone else for that matter have souls.

We can say with certainty that it is LEGAL to execute in the United States at least. Whether it is right or wrong is something else entirely.

The health of a murderer (unless you are talking about his mental state at the time of his crime) has little bearing on this.

An apology for a murder does not change the fact that their victim is dead. Also we cannot know whether they are sorry they murdered or sorry they got caught.

The word legal may be defined in certain-reasonable terms, but we cannot say anything is certainly legal. It is impossible to speak-presently-with-certainty,and for that matter, it is impossible to separate what is legal from being considered equivalent to the terms 'right' and 'wrong', for all of these terms are only reasonable and do not have a present sense of meaning.

It is impossible for any person to act in contradiction to their present state of health. One may currently think the difference between the present state of health and what is currently reasonable to be healthy, but there is no way to make the current terms into present being.

A person must feel in order to accept an apology; there is a selfless way of coexisting, in a fashion many refer to as lawful, that allows a living being to forgive and forget. Nobody is able to control anything, but for the illusion some are willing to try. When for selfish interest wills conflict somebody must be accused of trying to 'break the law' in order to keep up the appearance that there is something realistic about the illusion of control.

Apologies mean nothing to scientists, because the sciences are all nonsense.

I believe that in the case of a death penalty, it should be considered based on only the facts, emotional responses are illogical. Also your poll question, "Only for murderers who said always sorry" is illogical because every murder would say that.
