OPENING - Crissa Selwyna Maramag Imagine the life of someone you love, your whole life has been taken away by an inhumane person in just a snap. You see that person living his or her life in jail with luxury, is sentenced only 10 years in jail. When the time comes, you’re scared because what if he or she comes back for your family, killing another one of your loved ones to see you suffer. You can’t spend your whole life being afraid of what happens next. That is why we are pro capital punishment or what we usually call death penalty.
The system is left with trying to decide how much money can be awarded to the subject they are releasing depending on how much time was lost. The crime could have been heinous and the offender could have lost their family due to the circumstances of the crime their generally is not much of an apology for that. Imagine the numbers are as one percent of the convicted are wrongfully convicted that is still a significant amount of people serving prison sentences for nothing. The recidivism in many cases are so strong and that idea once a criminal always a criminal gets set in. In the event a person who truly is not a criminal gets sentenced to prison and learns to be a criminal while in prison.
This was later carried out through twenty-six other states, including the U.S., which created a precedent against the execution of the mentally ill in 1986. Even though the mentally ill cannot be executed, if the person who claimed mental illness is no longer mentally ill he or she can be executed. While the insanity plea proves that some criminals are mentally unstable, it should be used with caution because many convicted criminals abuse it during court cases, imitate being mentally ill during an examination, and are able to avoid the death penalty. Despite that the insanity plea can potentially help someone in defense for a mental illness case, many people can also take advantage of these precedents to alleviate their trials. The public in most insanity plea cases, do not typically agree with the rulings because most criminals use the
Daniel Frank was the first person to be legally executed, he was sentenced to death for theft. (Michael Par. 7). Being executed for theft really was extreme, and the government later made the execution method to be used for more grave crimes. Many states years after decided to abolish capital punishment, and eventually legalized it again.
But in the anti-crime campaign, the number of killers especially the sudden rise of fighters even though they are already handcuffed and have two opposing fruits. In the first place, the sheriffs run and run. But on the other hand, the citizens only remember why they cannot trust the police. Are not they the ones who were the leading drug traffickers nationwide, are they not even guilty of why every drug transaction in the Philippines continues to come in. But until now we are still confident in the police who are killing their former
They should get what they deserve and getting the lethal injection is the less painful way of executing them. I believe for the worst crimes, they should not even give them the option of lethal injection. The court should let the family/friends of the victim choose the inmate’s fate, whether that be slowly torturing them or using the lethal injection way. Honestly, the government should bring back the method of hanging instead of the lethal injection because it is cheaper and won’t waste our tax money. But then I think again, what if the inmate was not guilty and had to go through all of the torture?
Us living in a america, were born to live a good life, if we have twisted people who want to try to corrupt and kill why should we allow that? We are putting people we love and care about at risk. If criminals think they could get away with one they are more likely to do it again studies show. 3 to 18 people could be saved from a guilty killer. If you put the death penalty in play criminals will more than likely think twice before doing a crime because they know at the end of the day they will have to pay for there actions.
From this situation, it made people think highly of the punishment of rape. Then, there was the train of thought about rape should be punished by the death penalty. Some of people were believed that the death punishment is the effective punishment, but some do not believe this kind of punishment because it is cruelty. Even though the death penalty is the most severe punishment but it is not the best solution of the legal punishment. In each year, there are lots of rape case in our society.
When Ree goes to gang leader, Thump Milton, for the second time to get answers about her father, she is captured and beat up by the gang. Teardrop comes and saves Ree and makes the agreement with the gang that, “if she does wrong, [they] can put it on [him].” The violence in this film brings out Teardrop’s love for Ree as he selflessly agrees to put himself in the face of violence to save her from it. If he did not agree to do this, then Ree probably would have been killed, and her siblings would’ve been left with no one to take care of them. By accepting the future fury of this gang Teardrop essentially saves Ree and her siblings lives, revealing his protective nature. Later in the film, the women in the gang take Ree to see her father’s dead body, where she must cut off his hands to prove to the police that he is dead.
