Most death row inmates, unless they commit a serious multiple murder have been in and out of jail most of their life. Capital Punishment is a way for society to weed out the bad seeds that corrupt the whole. Personally I think they should be castrated, or not have a conjugal visits. Having people like that procreate makes me sick. Someone who has taken someone’s ability to procreate and enjoy life should be treated if they had killed themselves that day.
Death is a scary thing to think about, but it happens to every single human being and creature in this world. It is such a tragedy with the violent death of a loved one, but there really is nothing that can be done. All murderers and criminals need to pay for their actions, but the death penalty is not so effective and should be abolished. The death penalty has caused a division in the United States because of its fighting debates of getting rid of the death penalty. The death penalty is a capital punishment given to those who commit murder, treason, arson, and rape.
Just in a short amount of time people were put to the death penalty “It is believed that at least 23 people were wrongfully executed in the United States during the twentieth century”. So many people have been convicted of a crime that they have not committed. That shows that the death penalty should not be evoked especially if you don’t have enough evidence to back up the story about the criminal. You can end up killing an incident victim in the end. If you kill someone for committing a crime they didn’t commit you would regret It for the rest of your life.
Some states in America are starting to ban the death penalty because they believe it is inhumane. Are Americans ignorant to reality that this country needs the death penalty, or are Americans seeing into the future of a more civilized world? The biggest arguments against the death penalty is that it is cruel; it costs more to kill someone than to have them life in prison, and that there is a chance there is an innocent person being killed. There are more people that are against the death penalty now, then there and are for it. People believe that it is cruel because they think it is inhumane to take away someone 's life no matter what law they have broken.”No one has ever come to say that this did not hurt” (5 Arguments).
Although thought to be a problem in the past, the death penalty in today’s world has been proven to be an injustice and an immoral sentence for the people convicted. I believe that we do not have the right to kill anyone as a consequence for his or her past choices or actions. Just because a person murdered another, does not mean we have to also put another human being to death. It is God's decision what their fate should become, not ours. Perhaps we should try to make the person who did the crime be punished in another way for their crime.
The death penalty is not a punishment. Also the Death Penalty is costing many of us money without even knowing. Credibility: The day I saw in the news that a man was wrongly convicted to death row and was killed by lethal injection I started thinking what would have been if that was my father. The case has been stuck in my head because a man was wrongly convicted and there was nothing else they could have done because what was done was done. Thesis: By understanding more about the Death Penalty you will have a better understanding why it should be revoked in the U.S.
Capital punishment a form of "cruel and unusual" punishment, not always punishing the right person, justified by political and emotional rhetoric, and it is not cost effective and should be abolished. Nothing is more "cruel and unusual" than an over zealous government and breaking the laws of God. A death sentence ends everything without rehabilitation. The American justice system is supposed to rehabilitate, and we can't justify murdering murderers and call it rehabilitation. A man sentenced to death from that day forward has nothing to look forward to except a death from unnatural causes by a revengeful government.
Consequently, there are laws in place that allow the punishment of murder, by murder. Society's integrity is diminished every time a criminal is executed. The very tenets of modern organization are opposed to the notion of capital punishment, yet this is constantly defied and ignored by the American legal system. If no changes are made and the death penalty remains an acceptable form of punishment, it is inevitable that this correctional method will bleed throughout the American legal system and be utilized for "potential murderers" and small-time thieves. The mentality that encourages organized murder in the name of justice is doomed to devour the society that supports it, creating a totalitarian culture governed by paranoia.
The prisoners family must suffer from seeing their loved one put to death. Another example is that it shows that the death penalty gives closure to the victim’s families who have suffered so much. If a person murders another innocent person then the death penalty gives closure to the victim’s families who have suffered a lot. Even though the death penalty gives closure to the victims’ families who have suffered so much, the death penalty should not be allowed, because is always the possibility that the inmate is not guilt... ... middle of paper ... ...January 2014. Thirty women have been executed since the reinstatement of the death penalty in 1976 as of January 2014.
Some believe that if there is a death penalty, then there will be less murders, rapes and other horrible crimes. People also say that the death penalty will decrease overcrowding in prisons. Others believe that there shouldn’t be a death penalty because they think people should have the right whether or not to live or die. In some cases, innocent people have been falsely convicted and then sentenced the death penalty. In Truman Capote’s novel, In Cold Blood, both Richard “Dick” Hickock and Perry Smith were sentenced to death by hanging for the murders of the Clutter family.
