Death penalty (Deut 24:16-24:16)

“Parents shall not be put to death for their children. Nor shall children be put to death for their parents. Only for their own crimes may persons be put to death.”

Individual guilt is more important than family or group guilt. One member of the family cannot take the place of another member if there is death penalty imposed. You cannot transfer the death penalty to someone else, since individual responsibility means suffering the penalty yourself.
