Two in three support death penalty
Nearly two thirds of Britons support the reintroduction of capital punishment, a survey carried out to promote a tourist attraction said today.
Of those who supported the move, nearly eight out of 10 said murderers should face a capital sentence.
Meanwhile, 62% backed the death penalty for sex criminals and 58% for terrorists.
The method of execution which achieved the most backing from interviewees was lethal injection (68%), followed by hanging (25%), firing squad (5%) and electric chair (2%).
In the survey, 88% said executions should be carried out as humanely as possible.
But the remaining 12% insisted it should be conducted to "create suffering in proportion to the crime committed".
It’s a pity we won’t get what we want. If we were a proper democracy like
Our present government never give people what they want and they don’t look like they will in the future.
