It is really too bad that if you have money you can get your way out of the death penalty, but money talks in this country. Yes, we should change this policy, but will it ever change? It will probably never change... ... middle of paper ... ...er happens. The death penalty is only handed out to peolpe, who commit horrible immoral crimes like premeditated murder. Does this mean that we should throw out the death penalty because people, who did not really deserve to die, were killed?
If a murderer goes and kills someone then we kill the murderer, then we are at that person’s level. We can be the bigger person and just let them sit in jail. If we just get rid of Capital Punishment then we would never have to worry about killing an innocent person for something they didn’t do. These are reasons we should get rid of Capital Punishment, because it doesn’t do any good for us. However, if we just sit there and do nothing about the over crowding population then we will have to let some of the criminals go.
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.

Not everyone will be deterred from committing heinous crimes because of the death penalty. However, since the death penalty is the highest penalty for crimes it will obviously evoke the most fear in a human being. This fear will save... ... middle of paper ... ...rt the healing process. If a state governed by law is to be able to show warmth, compassion and peace of mind to victims and their families, then the death penalty is the most effective way to bring this about. The argument to the above is that the death penalty does not bring back any victim to life, therefore, unnecessary.
Capital punishment has been the “ultimate” price to pay for criminals over hundred of years. This form of punishment was designed to keep criminals off our streets and to scare people from committing heinous crimes, like murder. Without capital punishment, our society would seem as if it supported the act of murder. Showing that you will lose your life, if you choose to take the life of another, proves how seriously these crimes are taken by society. There are arguments for capital punishment, and there are arguments against it, but what is the best argument for/against having capital punishment?
Some criminals commit a crime because they have no other option to survive, but some do it for fun. I do not advocate death penalty for everybody. A person, who stole bread from a grocery store, definitely does not deserve death penalty. However, a serial killer, who kills people for fun or for his personal gain, definitely deserves death penalty. Death penalty should continue in order to eliminate the garbage of our society.
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.
According to deathpenalty.org thirty-two states now allow the death penalty. The death penalty has been the highest form of criminal punishment in the American Judicial system. Although many believe that Capital punishment is inhumane, it is rather fair and its continued use will end up helping our society in many ways. Capital Punishment supports that the worst criminals will be removed from our society, compared to sentencing criminals to life in prison it will help save money, deter other criminals from committing serious offenses, and it gives peace of mind to the victims and their families When we look at the benefits of capital punishment the main topic the public speaks out about is the price of capital punishment versus the price of life without parole. To house a prisoner that is serving life without the possibility of parole will cost about $40,000 to $50,000 per year while an average life sentence would serve about 30 to 40 years.
When the life of an individual is unjustly taken by another individual, the horror of the community for such an act cannot be adequately and proportionally manifested except as the community surmounts sentiment and exacts the life of the killer in payment - after a trial, where all possible human excuses and palliations have been alleged, tested, and found insufficient (Calder)." For people who truly value public safety, there is no substitute. Capital punishment not only forever bars the murderer from killing again, it also prevents parole boards and criminal rights activists from giving the criminal the chance to kill again.
Not everyone who murders should be put to death. There are justified killings, but there should be a better definition for who should die. “Mass murderers, terrorists, sadistic serial killers, contract killers or other paid assassins deserve to die” (Blecker). Rape and molestation are heinous crimes, but they should result in life without parole. Fellow inmates will decided their fate from there.
