Discharge can be exceptional as people have the grasp to profit from life parole. Besides, due to the fact that death penalty and severity are not the only retributions to keep people away from wounding each other and because of its hazardous impact on them, capital punishment should be abolished since it contains a high risk of an unfair justice system, it is incompatible with human rights and human dignity, and it does not deter crime. In the first place, death penalty has a high precariousness hazard, especially on human life. For over centuries, abundant crimes have been committed and predominantly, families of victims gave statements. By evaluating and investigating those statements, governments that had death penalty punished criminals yet they did not know if the person was really innocent and just accidentally gave the concurrent statement or not.
If a murderer was given a different punishment other than the death penalty, the human live(s) that perished would become less and less important. The death penalty is justified because in the Pledge of Allegiance we state “Liberty and Justice for all”. What better way to show this than to give deserving criminals the right punishment? (Phil 2) The Death Penalty has positive effects on murder victim’s families. Losing a loved one from old age, or sickness is a time of suffering that almost everyone will experience, but losing a loved one because they were brutally murdered is unexpected and much harder to overcome.
Our modern society has a very detailed system for justice and one aspect of is having different levels of punishment for different crimes. Many people say that the top level possible is capital punishment. Capital punishment or death penalty can be defined the legally authoeized killing someone as punishment for crime. The rules about capital punishment and the use are different between each country, state and some do not use it at all.

The death penalty is very controversial nationwide. However, we believe the death penalty is the only way to deter crime. Unlike the lethal injection, electrocution, firing squad, and gas chamber, hanging is more painful; therefore, using hanging as a death penalty puts more fear into murderers (Death Penalty Information Center). “Although you will never deter all murderers, the effect of deterrence will rise as the probability of executions rise” (Sharp “Death Penalty Paper”). Whenever death penalties are used as a punishment, the percentage of murders committed declines.
Punishment is execution as a form of punishment for people who have committed capital offenses. This form of punishment has been the center of a political debate over the past several decades. Many believe that it is a form of crime deterrent and provides closure for the loved ones of victims, while others believe it’s ineffective when it comes to deterrence and it sends the wrong message to other individuals. The loss of a loved one in such a tragic way is terrible, but to punish someone is such a way will not bring back that loved one. Capital Punishment should be abolished throughout the world.
In an article called ”Working for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, it reveals “Death Penalty Focus reports on November 20th, 2008, that many victims of crime have realized a life for a life is no way to ease their pain”. (Michell). Basically, Michell is saying that Death Penalty Focus revealed that the person committing the crime can be a sociopath and served time in a mental health facility. Although the death penalty may seem of concern to only a small group of people, it should in fact concern anyone who cares about life. The death penalty is one form of punishment.
These costs are not the result of careless appeals but instead the result of constitutionally mandated safeguards (www.deathpenalty.org). Even with the careless appeals and mandated safeguards were having to take a closer look into convicted felons’ cases and by doing so we have saved a large number of wrongfully convicted people. Capital punishment, the death penalty, is a highly controversial method used in punishing people who kill another human being. It has raised difficult moral, practical, and legal issues. The debate over capital punishment continues to be pursed in both courts and the political arena (Capital Punishment, pg.3).
