The death penalty also seems to be away of the government of showing the people who has the power and nothing will happen if there were to put you on the death penalty. I am argue that the death penalty is not right, it should not be legal, and i disagree with the whole thought of it. Who are we to decide when a person’s life is suppose to come to an end? That doesn’t make us any better than the person that committed the crime. We lock up so many people in jail for killing others how have once killed another person before but yet we are doing the exact
An innocent victim by the name of “Steven Truscott was wrongly convicted of murder… It was horrible for Truscott and the victim 's family because the real culprit got away with murder” (Wheeler). So far, under this horrifying system, “17 innocent people sentenced to death have been exonerated and released based on DNA evidence, and 112 other people based on other evidence” ("An Indefensible Punishment”). As long as the death penalty exists, there will be risks of executing innocent people. It must be abolished permanently and substituted by a sentence of life imprisonment without parole. Society 's needs of punishment and protection can be met without running the risk of an erroneous and irrevocable punishment.
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.
Perry does the death penalty unlike Dick. He openly confessed to killing the family and showed no remorse for the family. Some people think it safer for citizens if the criminals are executed after committing horrible crimes. Some also think its only fair if someone kills someone then they should not be able to live. Many people think the death penalty should be abolished.
Let the world know if you dislike or support the death penalty! A part of me wants to say the death penalty is wrong, but another says it’s not since they’re the ones that put themselves up to this. There the ones who chose to be the criminal, over time people can also change. In the end I still believe the death penalty is wrong. It’s wrong no one deserves to be killed, even if they did kill others.
Argument for Capital Punishment If it were up to me, every murderer in this country would be put behind bars on death row and have their life taken from them just as they took the life of another. The guidelines of " an eye for an eye" go back thousands of years. Many countries still hold true to these guidelines. Although America doesn't follow the same as these countries, I believe when it comes to murder, they should. Putting people to death for committing murder makes other potential murderers think twice about killing someone.
The death penalty is immoral and should be abolished due to its high costs, its ability to give the criminals an “easy way out,” it leaves too much room for error, and most importantly, it goes against God’s way of a natural death. As it is stated best in the Bible, “There is only one lawgiver and judge, He who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?” (King James Bible, James 4:12). A common misconception with the death penalty is that people think it costs less than to keep the convicted in prison for life. This is not true.
The death penalty is absolutely outrageous. There is no real reason that the government should feel that it has the right to execute people. Capital punishment is murder just as much as the people being executed murdered. The is no need for the death penalty and it needs to be abolished. It goes against the Constitution which states that there will be no cruel and unusual punishment.
Perhaps they had been truly insane, or maybe just an average person. Whatever the case may have been, they would’ve been given the death penalty if caught, and should have died immediately after receiving the death penalty. No one wants one of these people roaming the streets or taking up the space in federal prisons, w... ... middle of paper ... ...ut the years. There is no possible way to allow the families to receive justice for the loss of their loved ones, if the death penalty was repealed. Nothing can remove the grief for the families unless the murderer pays their dues and is sentenced to death.
All murderers should be put behind bars. What determines the level of how bad the murder is? A person killing another human being does not have various levels of “okayness”. That person committed a death and killing some murderers but not the others is not right. No murder is okay, all are they same, and by law it’s a crime.
