In some cases, determining the environment, prison can be a lot more worse than being put to death. The reason being is that they have to be in an environment of wicked people, and they have to sit there and think about what they did for the rest of their life. Almost everyone can agree, wheth... ... middle of paper ... ...d innocent later on down the road. In today’s advanced world we can use DNA testing and better investigation skills to determine whether this person committed the crime and should be executed. So the argument that the criminal could be innocent is becoming invalid but there still is a small chance.
They believe it to be morally wrong to kill another human being just because they killed one. Some also believe it to be wrong because of their religious views; they believe in rehabilitation and forgiveness. Some believe the death penalty to be wrong because they view it as people seeking revenge. Others do not have a lot of faith in the justice system for the evidence to be 100% correct; many believe this to be impossible. Years ago there were people who were arrested and sentenced to prison for life because the police officers and jury were convinced that these people were guilty.
A famous expression, “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” has become the basis for this political debate over the past several decades --- capital punishment. In society today, many people are murdered every day by the hands of another human being. Those who are for capital punishment promote that it is a deterrent for crime, provides closure, and is a moral punishment for those who choose to take a human life. Those not in favor of it argue that it is an ineffective crime deterrent, sends the wrong message, and is more expensive than sentencing a murderer to life in prison. When those who commit these heinous crimes are found guilty in the court of law, the loved ones of the victims often wants the murderer to be sentenced to death.
Some people are pro death penalty because they feel like it gets the crime off the streets. That it helps make the world a better place. Then there are some people like me who feel like the death penalty is injustice. Either way to me and many others the death penalty just does more harm than it does help. The death penalty is still being used to this day in many parts of the world.Death penalty does not serve purpose of justice; it is revenge For fact twenty-eight states still use the death penalty as a form of punishment.
An easy way to answer these questions is to totally nullify capital punishment completely. One reason why the death penalty is so controversial is because many feel its cruel ways of punishment are unnecessary, even if the crime is murder, whether it be premeditated or unintentional. They believe there are other ways of condemnation besides execution. In the case of an unintentional death feelings are that the perpetrators should have the right to live, but have to face each day with the fact that they killed someone weighing on their conscience. On the other hand, such as with a voluntary murder, the ideas are somewhat similar.
However, many people do not agree with the death penalty due to sympathy for miscreant. Death penalty is very significant in that it relates to the criminal’s life in some cases and has many social impacts. The death penalty should be kept due to criminal’s introspection, deterrence for crime, humanitarianism and money. There is an argument that the death penalty will give no chance for the criminal to introspect. Actually, we will find that the criminal who will receive the death penalty must have many sins, such as treason and first degree murder (Wiki).
Society 's needs of punishment and protection can be met without running the risk of an erroneous and irrevocable punishment. Many people favor the death penalty as reparation for the wrong done to a victim’s family; however, in most cases, closure is not the result. Losing a loved one, no matter how that person is lost, is unbearable, irrevocable, and shattering. Moreover, the death penalty supporters claim that the murderers must suffer in order to make the victims’ families feel better and that death is what murderers deserve – “making the punishment fit the crime.” If punishments are unjust unless they mirror the crime itself, then it would mean punishing rapists
However, many debates are rising between people about whether or not capital punishment is a good thing or a bad thing. Not everyone agrees with the idea of a person being put to death for a crime. One opposing argument for capital punishment is that it is hypocritical and immoral because it does the very thing the government is trying to stop. Another argument is the death penalty can kill innocent people if not fully proven guilty. Finally, the death penalty also denies the sanctity of life; by executing people, the action does not protect their life and, therefore, denies the sanctity of a human being’s right to be alive in the world.
There have been multiple reported cases in which there have been people released days and if not hours away from their soon to be execution. Not only do they get released but they are also given compensation for being wrongly convicted and the trauma they have been put through for being incarcerated and put on death row for a horrible act they did not commit. Not only is the capital punishment of the death penalty a complete utter waste of people’s tax dollars as well as government funds, but it is completely an illiterate way of handling punishments for other human beings which corrupts the morality of people and in some cases causes much more damage than it does
There are many reasons to both support and oppose the death penalty. Many people can feel very strongly about whether or not they approve of this method of punishment. I feel that the death penalty is wrong, and I believe that there is much support to back this up. I believe that the death penalty is wrong because it is not an effective deterrent, racially and economically bias, unreliable, expensive, and morally wrong of society. One argument from death penalty supporters is that the death penalty acts as a deterrent to prevent other people from committing murders.
