Does this mean that we should throw out the death penalty because people, who did not really deserve to die, were killed? No, we have changed the laws, and no one gets the death penalty unless they deserve to die. Capital punishment should stay around. Yes, there are some maldistributions on the way it is opposed on a person, but those maldistributions are imposed on guilty people. Capital punishment is feared by potential murderers because once it is ordered on them they are not coming back.
So, poor people are more likely to be sentenced to death and some of them may be innocent, and terrifying consequence is that once death penalty is imposed it can never be taken back again. No one can guaranty that there is no possibility of discovering evidences which may exonerate an innocent person but since death penalty is irreversible process, an executed person will no longer be benefited by any new evidences. Thus, death penalty should be abolished and life which is most precious thing that a person can have should not be endangered by such punishment and one innocent life must not suffer in the place of true criminal. The death penalty should be abolished and should never be an option of punishment. Executing murders is not getting justice, it is getting revenge.
The long term cost is almost the same as a life without parole sentence. Criminal who did serious crimes deserve the death penalty and do not deserve to live. The money spent on an inmate can be used to fix our roads, build schools, and enhance education programs for school. Some say that capital punishment is inhumane and barbaric, but these same morale feelings were not applied when the criminal murdered the victim. Capital punishment would not only bring closure to the family, but deter crime by knowing that they could not commit murder or harm to anyone else’s family or loved ones.
Therefore, nothing will deter a criminal more than the fear of death... life in prison is less feared. Murderers clearly prefer it to execution -- otherwise, they would not try to be sentenced to life in prison instead of death... Therefore, a life sent... ... middle of paper ... ...complete mental health believes that killing other human beings for his own happiness and enjoyment, he is not fit to live in this world and therefore should be taken out of it before more harm is put in place to more innocent human lives, those lives of which may be someone who makes the cure to cancer, connects all countries together through harmony, or is able to prolong the lives of many deserving people. If we eliminate those who have done wrong we will harper a world in which right is encouraged by all and with that we will live in a more enjoyable friendly environment.

For some of them, the key to stop violence and murder is to destroy the source of the problem in which the criminal is the root of it and the perfect tool to accomplish this is by using the death penalty. The death penalty shouldn’t exist, it brings nothing but pain and it is a sure way of putting the morality among human beings down. The death penalty is a structure for the government to stop crime and violence for good, however; it is not having a significant impact in reducing or even stopping the crimes at all. In 2004, the murder rate in the US was 5.71 per 100,000 people of the population as against 4.02 per 100,000 in states that did not use it (amnesty). Even with death penalty, crime rates in some states are still high even with death penalty and there is no gu... ... middle of paper ... ...making them question the strength of the government to make tough decisions in whether the criminals should live or die by the death penalty.
Such a move would help to calm down the fears of recidivism and would send a strong message to lawbreakers. The abolition of the death penalty would mean the end of executions and that the government wouldn't put any more prisoners to death. It should be recognized that murder is wrong in and of itself. Beyond that, it is wrong even as a secret plan within the heart. It is as old a human problem as Abel's death by his own brother, Cain.
Take into consideration that the Constitution states that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness can not be taken away without due process. The offenders committing the brutal, heinous crimes have not applied this right to the victims of their crimes. Why should the government take their rights into consideration when the victims rights meant so little to them? People always put forth the idea that killing is wrong in any sense, yet they don’t want to punish the people that commit the crimes. If a person is so uncompassionate for human life and not care what happens; are sick enough to harm someone else, they should also pay the price with their lives.
I strongly believe that a person who commits crime should not be punished by death penalty. One of the main ideas of using the death penalty is to act as an example to others. Death penalty sends a message to the families of victims that the justice system is there to help them not for the accused people who could also be innocent. The government is implementing death penalty to convey to people that the justice system is an advocate of revenge. However, many criminologists support that the death penalty is not a deterrent to capital crimes.
Regardless of cost or how long it takes I believe that putting these people to death is the correct sentence, not only because I feel that they deserve to die but because the death penalty is a deterrent and society is better off without these criminals. Therefore I agree with supporters of capital punishment and that the death penalty should remain in existence. My research further solidified my position because I felt that the arguments in favor of capital punishment clearly debunked many of the reasons for abolishment by the anti-death penalty movement.

It could be on accident, out of self-defense, out of mental instability, or pure revenge. You can’t give the death penalty to all of these people because their intensions were all different. The mentally unstable person should not be sentenced to death because it is possible that he or she was completely unaware of their actions and should be admitted into an institution. They will be punished in other ways and society will still get justice from it. Killing out of self-defense is never questioned for the death penalty, yet the outcome is still the same; a person is dead.
