Argumentative Essay: The capital punishment
The capital punishment or the death penalty is an action known to mankind since the binging of human civilization. It was sanction and legal and existed over the centuries. However, the look of modern punishment or penalty, no longer takes into account the seriousness of the facts from the trial by the accused, but also the impact it would have on the society in general and the accused, in particular, with careful thought as to whether the judgment is just or not. Especially, since every judgment is issued on behalf of the public will happen in the claims of preforming justice. It truly became a controversial topic which a single family can be torn and divided among its members. Jurists and legislators, as well, differed about retaining the death penalty for quit some time, which we can see reflected on various countries of the world. Some countries retained it, while we find some others who abolished it for all crimes except for specific ones such as war crimes. Some others, on the other hand, have kept it. An example of this is Saudi Arabia which is where I come from. In this paper I will argue for the capital punishment based on where I come from.

And I understand that forgiveness is a virtue that we all should practice from time to time. Therefore we should help the families by assigning special therapists whom can solve their problems and persuade them to not choose the death penalty. We should not cancel the death penalty. It should exist as it was millenniums ago.
