After completing the murder, Raskolnikov begins to have more dreams, this time dealing with guilt. In the second dream, Petrovich is beating the landlady outside of Raskolnikov’s apartment. In fact the beating is so brutal that Raskolnikov states that, “Good God, what a scream! Such unnatural sounds, such howling, wailing, grinding, tears, blows and curses he had never heard” (Dostoevsky 102). The cruelty when Raskolnikov murdered the pawnbroker is about the same as Petrovich in his dream; the only difference is that
Having the knowledge that killing or committing brutal acts such as rape could cost you your own life certainly brings up a major issue with human nature. With the death penalty, one would have to make a decision that goes against the basis of our existence. Not all criminals however would be affected by this choice. There are some who are so psychologically different that the drive behind committing these acts of violence is stronger than normal instincts. These rarities are just a part of nature that we have no control of and will always be there.
Then, they went to the house of a writer, to burglarize it. While there, they brutalized the writer and his wife.

The world is not perfect so it seems that God must not be all-loving or He must not be all-powerful. Rejecting the existence of evil, immediately rejects too much of the Judeo-Christian tradition to be considered, though some philosophers have considered it. The traditional Christian answer to why God allowed the death of Christ is for the absolution of humanity’s sin. However, this begs the question, as an omnipotent God why was it necess... ... middle of paper ... ...owardice or evil (2) must then work to minimize good (1) and maximize evil (1). This process can continue ad infinitum It also follows that God, not as benevolent as could be hoped, prefers the maximization of good (2) as opposed to the minimization of evil (1).
He is then visited by an advisor who pretty much accuses him of being involved in the fight with billyboy and says that he doesn’t want him to get into any more trouble. He then goes to the record shop where he pick up two younger girls, takes them back to his apartment. He then drugs himself, gets the girls drunk, and then rapes them. He then goes to sleep for a few hours, when he wakes up it is just about night time and he tells his parents he is going to work.

Although he thinks that the most appropriate punishment for a murderer is death, since the criminal is unworthy to live among mankind.
This quote represents one of the main reasons the death penalty should be removed. Innocent individuals should not be able to be put to death for crimes they did not commit, even if the evidence was initially pointing towards them. Evidence needs to be solid and indisputable. In conclusion the banning of capital punishment within the United States should be a goal that should be reached soon. Despite the reasons individuals might want the death penalty, the pros of removal outweigh the cons.
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.
