The death penalty is a punishment of execution, given to someone legally convicted of a capital crime. The death penalty laws were established in the 18th century B.C when king Hammaurabi of Babylon instituted the law for 25 different crimes. In Jewish history the death penalty could only be given after trail by the Sanhedrin, which was composed of twenty-three judges. There were four different ways the death penalty was imposed on an individual, these were burning, stoning, strangling and slaying (Talmud). In today’s society most countries have abolished the death penalty due to various reasons such as unfair justice, but others still have it in place, for example some states in The United States of America. Crimes that fall under the capital
Canada, one of the countries in the world that have a low murder rate. But even with such low rates, why do some Canadians want to reinstate the death penalty? Is it really necessary to bring back what we have already abolished? Or should we fight our urges for vengeance and look for a solution that 's morally right?
Capital punishment, or the death penalty, is a legal process in which a person is put to death as a punishment for a crime by the government of a nation. The United States is in the minority group of nations that uses the death penalty. There are thirty-three states that allow capital punishment and seventeen states that abolished it (Death Penalty Information Center). The morality of the death penalty has been debated for many years. Some people want capital punishment to be abolished due to how it can cost a lot more than life imprisonment without parole, how they think it is immoral to kill, and how innocent people can be put to death. However, the death penalty reduces overcrowding, provides closure for victim’s family, and is true justice.
Capital Punishment is considered one of the most controversial sentences across the world and has been used as punishment for many centuries. However, as society has evolved the international community has found that it is a violation of human rights and hence created the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights 1976. Under Article 6.1 it states, “Every human being has the inherent right to life.” and under Article 6.2 it states, “In countries which have not abolished the death penalty, sentence of death may be imposed only for the most serious crimes in accordance with the law.”
If families do not have some form of discipline inside of their household things would begin to get out of control and become chaotic. So some parents choose to use spankings as a form of discipline. I think that spanking is necessary in raising children. In my household spanking was enforced for my siblings and I when we were younger, it was to teach us what’s right from wrong. Spanking is a disciplinary action where children can learn from it. Many oppose spanking as a form of discipline because psychologists, therapist, counselors plus many others have researched the behavioral, psychological and emotional effects. Some have found that it can lead to depression, delinquency etc. I do not think that spankings cause negative affects because of studies and personal experience. Certain circumstance in the household along with spanking may lead to negative outcomes.
Spanking is a form of corporal punishment that is commonly used to discipline children all around the world.

Spanking is a form of discipline that parents use towards their children when they are doing something that is deviant. However there are both pros and cons when it comes to spanking a child. A study done by Murray Strauss was conducted to see if spanking increased antisocial behavior in children. A total of 807 mothers, with children ages 6 to 9, were chosen in the study (Strauss, Sugarman, & Giles-Sims, 1997). The results showed that 45% of mothers that spank their children do it around 2.1 times a week (Strauss, Sugarman, & Giles-Sims, 1997). As the years progressed and the spanking continued, Antisocial Behavior tended to worsen as well. The study also found that when parents reduced their tendency of spanking, Antisocial Behaviors tended
Whether spanking is helpful or harmful to children continues to be the source of debate among both researchers and the public. Many argue that spanking your children helps inforce good behavior and is a form of discipline for the bad. Although this maybe the reason why parents spank their own children many say spanking is a form of abuse. They say spanking your child can cause mental health problems and can cause negative outcomes.
Spanking is a type of physical punishment involving the act of striking another person to cause pain, generally with an open hand. More severe forms of spanking, such as switching, paddling, belting, caning, whipping, and birching, involve the use of an implement instead of a hand. Parents tend to spank their child to discontinue an undesired behavior. Throughout history there have been many forms of punishment, such as spanking, grounding, and timeouts. However, have you ever thought about the way it affects a child’s life? What is the long term outcome? Is there a better way to assist the situation? Many parents feel that it is unnecessary to spank a child because it is not okay to hit, on the other hand, other parents view it as a way of getting the child’s attention and telling them “No.” There are just as

For many, spanking a kid is deemed to be one of the best ways to raise a kid. Since the previous generations, also known as the older generations were raised this mode, many accredit that applying the almost exact same method on their kids can lead these youngsters to learn and grow straight, therefore expecting that a spanked kid will aftermath in a prospective society with future gracefully informed and well educated adults. However, corporal punishments aren’t indeed the appropriate way neither the best solution to deal with the misbehavior of a little bairn.
There is a worldwide trend in the use of penal imprisonment for serious offenses as capital punishment has been renounced by an increasing number of countries. Harsh punishments include capital punishment, life imprisonment and long-term incarceration. These forms of punishments are usually used against serious crimes that are seen as unethical, such as murder, assault and robbery. Many people believe that harsher punishments are more effective as they deter would-be criminals and ensure justice is served. Opposition towards harsh punishments have argued that harsher punishments does not necessarily increase effectiveness because they do not have a deterrent effect, do not decrease recidivism rates and do not provide rehabilitation. In addition,
Corporal punishment is a common problem all over the world (United Nations, 2008). South Africa has adopted a Human Rights constitution, ratified the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) in 1995, and legally abolished corporal punishment in schools (Republic of South Africa, 1996, A-47; South African Schools Act, 1996). However, it is still a challenge for some South African teachers to abandon corporal punishment as a disciplinary practice.
Corporal punishment is a controversial topic and has been the source of extensive legal debate on a global scale, with evidence being presented to support numerous countering views and opinions. Reasonable corporal punishment in the home is still protected by the law in South Africa, and many South Africans are in support of the continuation of its legality.

The future of corporal punishment is questionable, and with more
