    Death Row and Women In Hamurabi Law, if someone is accused of murder they must take a leap into the closest river. If the accused drowns, the accuser shall take possession of his house. If the accused emerges unhurt, then the accuser is put to death and his house is given as compensation to the accused. While the system of capital punishment in the United States is not quite as random, it has its own problems that can oftentimes cross the fine line between arbitrary and absurd. The discrepancy

Unfortunately, no research could be found to illustrate other views or opinions of life on death row. The author of this article used many opinions

    pro-arguments for the death penalty I believe there is enough evidence that implies it should not be legal in any way, shape or form. Imagine if you knew the day and exact time that you would die. How would you want to spend those last few hours? Answers would clearly vary greatly from person to person, but I am certain that not a single soul would choose their last few hours on earth spent in a tiny room alone. Before the execution inmates are brought to what is called the death house cell to spend

    Women on Death Row The eighth amendment protects Americans from the infliction of cruel and unusual punishment. Many death penalty opponents use this as the backbone to their argument against capital punishment. Other than being cruel, I do not think that the death penalty can be used judiciously in the United States or any other part of the world. Personally, I do not think that human beings are perfect and as such they cannot set up a perfect justice system. In any justice system that is flawed

    heartless to punish people by the death penalty. The death penalty is a sensitive topic everywhere; people are either with or without death penalty. Death penalty should be a punishment for murders, rapist and people who commit a crime that destroys another person’s life.
