The death penalty will be looked at in terms of its benefits and its drawbacks. The death penalty is the execution of criminals who have committed heinous crimes, such as murder. We are determining whether criminals should be punished with the same crime they have committed or whether they should live on. Should we execute criminals in order for justice to be served or should we let them live harder lives in prison? Are we being hypocritical when we execute criminals or are we taking retribution for the victim of the murder?
However, there are those who feel that just as the principle states, one is, and should be taken as a victim and the outcome could be either way: guilty or not guilty. In fact, this argument is supported by the many cases of malicious prosecutions and mistaken identities. The differences The due process model is pegged on the belief that it would be better if a criminal found innocent goes free rather than have one innocent person in jail.

In Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, Dostoevsky challenges the concept of crime. Through Raskolnikov’s ability to rationalize murder and evil, Dostoevsky challenges the concept of what a crime is. By depicting Raskolnikov in a way that he rationalizes his acts, it can be understood that the concept of crime is dependent on the situation and the outcome. With this, one can question whether crime will remain as a crime even if it results in the benefit of the majority of the population.
