I would like to give the honour of the first step not the rabble for my part in these things, but I mean, the honetten people to claim and should take this honor, as their spokesman, the State. The arguments: For the introduction of the death penalty some things will be said. Because first of all, there is the argument of basic ethics. People ask and this is without a doubt something very questions value, because a murder demands but Atonement. The question whether this may, meet us whether this area of blood magic, as I would like to call it, is sufficient to justify a thing like this. The second argument, that appears in the field, a rational argument is the argument of deterrence and the securing of the society." Bookseller Ludwig: "I ask to speak."

Woman: "I see no other way as death penalty, to protect the society from thugs as nobody can give the guarantee to the effect that this violence criminals never comes out of prison." Carlo Schmid: "I think that you can just decide this question, the problem in the last of the religious and the ethical collection of people."
