Recently, a couple from North Carolina named Basheba Freeman of 22 years old, and Taquan Beecham of 25 years old pleaded guilty of murdering their baby. Murderers that have committed a series and regretful crimes have only been given a short sentence. In this case, Freeman has only received up to 20 years, and Beecham a maximum of 6 years in prison for the death of their daughter. Penalty for any kind of death should be punished with much higher years. With that being said, Basheba Freeman and Taquan Beechman should receive the death sentence in prison for abusing, starving, and killing their own daughter.
There are still many questions as to why it has taken this long to charge him with murder. Why he could get away with it for this long. Forty years it way to long for anyone to have to wait to for answers or to finally get closure. My heart goes out to the Lyon family and those poor
Title Mary Surratt should have been executed. Mary Surratt was guilty because there is evidence of her supplying the criminals and having a very suspicious behavior. Mary Surratt's behavior was very weird and suspicious. Mary Surratt was not shocked at the news of Abraham's murder but when the officials visited her a second time her response was dramatically different and appeared shocked at the news. She pretended to not have heard the news which is lying and if she was innocent why would she need to lie to cops.
HIs time he spends in prison personally is way too much time and the jurors/judges could have gave him less time for a variety of
If I were on the jury, I would have voted to acquit Steve Harmon. I would acquit Steve Harmon because he was just a kid and was, if he was apart of the crime at all, probably pressured into it by King. Also Steve Harmon gave a very compelling story when he was on the stand. On top of that Mr. Sawicki said that he is an outstanding young man and that Steve is very involved in depicting his neighborhood in a positive
He took the life of not 1, not 2, but 13 innocent lives some of which were children who has not even been able to experience life yet. No human should be put in a situation where they fear for their lives or they get their lives taken because of someone's
Overall these innocent men deserved more than what they recieved, an unfair treatment in and out of the courtroom. Both cases had African American men that were judged by a jury of all white people and because they raped a woman. If they lost this case it meant they would receive the death penalty. This was always going to be an unfair trial. In To kill a Mockingbird it is said that “A jury never looks at a defendant it has convicted,
After a while they decided to drop the charges and move on with the case. June 1st was the start of this horrific event and when he was sentenced the death penalty there was relief and sorrow in the court room on March 16, 2004. He still awaits the day for his death by lethal injection. As the trial progressed they investigated his motivations for murdering his wife and unborn child and came across
Christopher Simmons killed this innocent woman and more punishment should have been given than what was. Simmons will sit in prison thinking that he got away with it. This does not set a good example for the younger generation, that if you want to murder someone then you can and you don't receive the death penalty, but jail for life. The death penalty was legal for minors in the State of Missouri, the death penalty was a fair punishment for Christopher Simmons and would have been the wisest punishment to give. No mercy should have been given to Simmons on this action.
In this case, the cases R v Dean, R v Baker and R v Villa, were cited and used as a precedent stating that “where multiple murders are committed by the one offender, the offender’s culpability for each murder is informed by his culpability for all the murders”. Due to the similar situations in which multiple murders occurred in those cases, it was used as a referral for the sentence given. STATUTE Section 19A (1) of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) states that life imprisonment is utmost punishment for murder. This was a main factor that contributed to his sentence – life imprisonment. The other reason for this was Section 61(1) of the Crimes (Sentencing) Procedure Act 1999 (NSW) (“the Sentencing Act”).
The Port Arthur Massacre occurred on the 28th and 29th of April 1996 in Port Arthur, Tasmania, Australia. Martin Bryant is undoubtedly guilty for the murder of 35 people along with 20 people injured as he had the motive due to being socially inappropriate, mentally disabled, and infused with a high level of frustration and anger towards others. Similarly, witnesses report seeing him at the scene of the crime and time frames noted by those who saw him, place him at Port Arthur on the day this event took place. Further to this, though he initially denied having anything to do with it, he later confessed at the court hearing, and admitted his guilt. Martin Bryant is undoubtedly guilty for the murder of 35 people along with 20 people injured as he had the motive due to being socially inappropriate, mentally disabled, and infused with a high level of frustration and anger
According to JK Rowling in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, “Killing is not so easy as the innocent believe.” On January 13, 1999 Hae Min Lee, a senior at Woodlawn High School, Baltimore, Maryland disappeared. Almost a month later, on February 9, 1999, her body was found lifeless in Leakin Park. Moreover, the results of the autopsy stated that the victim died of manual strangulation. In the most unfortunate cases, the crime was blamed on her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, who got convicted of first degree murder serving a life sentence in jail.

And he deserves it. Does he? No! What the devil! No one deserves to have someone else make the sacrifice of becoming a murderer.”
Killing another seems very unjustifiable, which might be the case but when someone takes another 's life and sent to prison, death row or capital punishment is needed to put that person were they belong. People like that deserve to die because of their mistake of killing another and it deters other people to not kill others, showing them what would happen. In the case of Capital Punishment, Hunting for Sport, or George and Lennie, killing is a justifiable act. In the case of capital punishment killing is justified and needs to be done. For example, “Some crimes are so inherently evil they demand strict penalties up to and including death”(McClatchy).
