If a murderer was given a different punishment other than the death penalty, the human live(s) that perished would become less and less important. The death penalty is justified because in the Pledge of Allegiance we state “Liberty and Justice for all”. What better way to show this than to give deserving criminals the right punishment? (Phil 2) The Death Penalty has positive effects on murder victim’s families. Losing a loved one from old age, or sickness is a time of suffering that almost everyone will experience, but losing a loved one because they were brutally murdered is unexpected and much harder to overcome.
