As well as depending on the criminals race the consequences valid on the judge 's opinion.
Death Penalty According to the 2010 Gallup Poll, 64% of the United State of America are supporting the death penalty, I as an American am part of that 36% that is against it. I do not believe that we as human being should determine whether another person should live or die. A second reason that I am against the death penalty is for the reason that the accused person could be innocent and normally the accused person only has one court presentation and is only judged by the judge not a jury of their peer, and is sent to death row where they pay for a crime that they haven’t done. My final reason that i do not believe that the death penalty should count as a punishment for the American people is because, a person that has done a massive massacre shouldn’t just be able to leave the world just like that without paying and suffering for what they have done, Or should the death punishment continue as it is for it has a great benefit to us as citizens of the United States.
He repeats “because” to make himself believe carrying out his duty of killing the enemy soldier was the right thing to do. He had to put aside his morals and kill the enemy before the enemy kills him. “Yes; quaint and curious war is! You shoot a fellow down you’d treat if met where any bar is or help to half-a-crown”(Hardy 20).The speaker is reflecting on his integrity and how in certain situations you would not kill someone who you could have been friends with.

It doesn’t matter how death comes about because the inevitable end result of temporal existence is that everyone dies. This is the common denominator between all of the scenarios, but it is also one I found between Atwood’s F scenario and Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” as a family of three adults and two children are murdered. But here’s the twist. While these stories share a common conclusion, they are not about death. “Happy Endings” and “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” is about life.
The quote can be tied to the previous quote from Fahrenheit 451 because Bradbury explains that death is sudden and there is everything to lose if nothing has been done. Another quote from Fahrenheit 451 expresses Bradbury’s views on leaving a mark of existence to be remembered

The last way the authors argue for/against war is the principal v.s reality. Sam’s death was one of them. For example, “ Don 't shoot him, don 't shoot him, and at that moment Sam slammed backwards as if he 'd been knocked over by a mallet” (Collier and Collier 208). Another principle v.s. reality is Mr. Meeker 's death. For instance " Having Father gone was strange.
Death Qualification: Choosing Jury in Death Penalty Cases Death qualification is a process unique to capital trials in which prospective jurors are questioned about their beliefs regarding the death penalty. Courts can eliminate potential jurors who are not willing to vote for the death penalty in a capital case. If the judge believes that a juror 's feelings about the death penalty would impair his or her ability to judge the case and choose the punishment fairly, that juror will be dismissed "for cause. " There is an unlimited number of "for cause" challenges and typically all jurors who say that they oppose the death penalty are excluded. Jurors who are not eliminated by the judge "for cause" because of their death penalty views can be eliminated
In this paper, I will explain Dennis Plaisted’s argument that physician assisted suicide should not be legalized on the basis of autonomy in the case that the state does not value the lives of the terminally ill if they allow the legislation to be enacted. I argue that his argument is unsound because the government does care about its people and wants to allow the terminally ill to have an alternative to suffering. First, I will explain the basis of physician assisted suicide and summarize a few of Plaisted’s arguments against it. Then, I will argue that his claim is unsound since the state is sympathetic enough to allow an alternative treatment to incurable illnesses, and that Plaisted’s theory fails in that for the legislation to work, they
