An Overview of Capital Punishment - An Overview of Capital Punishment Introduction     Capital punishment is punishment by death for committing a crime.  Since the early 1800's most executions have resulted from convictions for murder.  The death penalty has also been imposed for such serious crimes as armed robbery, kidnapping, rape, and treason.  There is much disagreement about whether or not capital punishment is effective in discouraging crime.       In the early 1990's, 36 states of the United States had laws that permitted the death penalty.  These laws were greatly influenced by a 1972 decision of the Supreme Court of the United States which had banned the death penalty as it was then imposed, describing the carrying out of the death penalty as cruel and unusual punishment.  But the court left open the possibility that the death penalty might be imposed for certain crimes and if it was applied according to clear standards....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Essays] 2308 words
