The death penalty should stay because we need it. If someone commits a crime they should take full responsibility for their actions. We do not need to keep them in jail. If they stayed in jail then they are still alive and someone innocent had to die because of their actions.
Justice is never advanced in the taking of a human life… Time and time again we have witnessed the specter of mistakenly convicted people being put to death in the name of American criminal justice. However, it is not the intention of those who support capital punishment to kill those who are innocent. Even though it does not happen often, it still happens, but anything that has to do with humans there will be human errors that occur.
Will you stand with us or against us? I do not support the death penalty for some couple of reasons. First I do not think that a human being should be able to judge a person on their crime, a person should be jailed as a punishment. If we as human decide whether a person lives or dies from a bad doing, then we are as guilty as them and are doing the same thing as them by killing them. So as a result, I in my opinion of this subject do not believe
Life without parole is a better alternative than the death penalty. Sentencing a murder to life without parole (LWP), is much more satisfying as well know that their cruelty will never surround us ever again. Taxpayers well be paying less if we remove the death penalty, LWP will require less resources that what will be provided during the death penalty. Life without parole is a more lenient punishment for people who have brutally mistreated and murder people,
They just assume it was something bad and they won’t hire them. Alexander Acknowledges that “You’re now branded a criminal ,a felon, and employment discrimination is now legal against you for the rest of your life. ”(Alexander3) Jobs have the right to not hire a criminal if they don’t want it is not discriminating by law. So basically if you don’t know someone that owns a business or knows someone in a job that can explain to the person that hires that you’re a change person and wants the opportunity to excel in life you will not get a job nowhere.
This is one of the basis of society and it always do the most of its efforts to apply it in the society. When a murder kills someone it is duty of the society to punish murder. When someone is killed, victim’s family suffer and nothing can heal those even punishment of murder by capital punishment or by vengeance. However, it can be considered from another side. If convicted person to execution was innocent and capital punishment apply for he or she, where is the justice?
Additionally, these men may be let out on good behavior before their life sentence has been served and cause havoc in their cities once again. The death penalty can improve in its efficiency, its effectiveness and its certainty, but it is no doubt the best way to take care of the men and women who take the lives of innocent civilians in our country. The use of a life sentence simply does not do the job that the death penalty does. These men will have relationships in prison along with human interaction and other quality moments that they do not deserve. They should be taken off of this Earth just as they took their victims away from their families.
Haag (2007) writes that the death penalty is feared more than imprisonment because of its finality in that the person is excommunicated from the living. As such, it is a more effective and necessary form of punishment. Berns (1996) writes that the law must be “inspiring or commanding ‘profound respect or reverential fear’” for it to be effective in deterring criminals. However, people in favor of abolishing the death penalty can argue that despite its deterrence benefits, the life of the murderer is important. This means that the victim’s life is less important even though the offender is the one who has committed a crime.
Cost of the Death Penalty When it comes to the topic of the death penalty being cost effective. Most of us will readily agree that the death penalty is the most expensive, that it’s a financially impractical punishment for convicted murders. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of whether capital punishment with one execution is more expensive than life a sentence without the possibility of parole, Others maintain that since many law enforcement officials consider that it is an effective deterrent against homicides and a sufficient use of taxpayer dollars. My own view is that those convicted of capital punishment should be sentenced to life imprisonment without getting any parole because it is more cost effective.
The death penalty as the book calls it, is a “socialization process” where individuals grow up learning the consequences and remain inherently good, rather than, having to weigh the pros and cons of a situation. Statistics show that there is no measurable correlation between murder and the death penalty. Statistics can always be skewed In that other factors
In today’s day and age, a person does not get put to death for just any crime. A recurring argument against the death penalty is that sentencing a defendant to death violates the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition. The Eighth Amendment protects against cruel and unusual punishment. Mental illness is expressly recognized as a mitigating factor in most death penalty statutes. The Supreme Court came to the conclusion in the case of Ford vs. Wainwright that the use of cruel and unusual punishment under the Eighth Amendment to execute a person whose mental state renders understanding of capital punishment is impossible.
We all can understand how the feeling of anger and resent can
Unfortunately, our justice system is not always accurate and faulty cases slip through the cracks. Families of innocent people should not be made to suffer for the inadequacy of the death penalty. Capital punishment poses a large risk to innocent people and their families.courts can sentence murderers to life without parole, why not get rid of the death penalty? The death penalty is the most horrible punishment of execution that the united state of america has allowed. It seems that our government is being hypocritical when it states that capital punishment is allowable because, after all, the criminal did murder an innocent victim, and therefore should be killed.
It will only get rid of them, and now when same situation occurs again you will do the same thing? It will be a cycle of death. The amount of people killed by the police is way to high. I don 't think it is right for those who enforce the law to break the law. It is devastating the amount of death that goes on because of a simple solution that can be solved by just talking.
