Unfortunately, Detroit is not the only city in America with thousands of untested rape kits are lined up along shelves in crime labs unknown. Even the labs right here in Greenville, South Carolina are guilty of neglecting kits.
Then others believe that it is right to punish someone for their actions especially if their actions involve killing another or multiple humans. The death penalty, is the loss of life, which is induced by different tactics. The most common methods in the United States is lethal injection, hanging, firing squad, and the electric chair.

In our society we use the death penalty only in extreme cases. The death penalty is used in cases of sexual assault with a child under the age of fourteen, a second conviction for rape of a child under fourteen, and a murder in the first degree. In our society death penalty should not be acceptable. If someone has committed a crime they should be sent to prison on a life sentence instead of the death penalty. To sit in jail for the rest of your life seems like a harsher punishment.

Murdering or sentencing one to death row is not just, even if the individual is guilty of treason. By saying the individual on trial shall not live because they murdered another, this reflects back on the decision makers. It deems those making the decisions hypocrites. The court members are choosing whether one lives or dies, and if they choose the death option they are performing the exact crime the individual could be on trial for. Murder.
