However, those convicted are given a reasonable punishment and opportunities to have their cases reassessed if need be. The death penalty provides criminals with a reasonable punishment, given their case, without exceeding constitutional provisions. Capital punishment provides reasonable punishment given the crime. According to state laws, the death
States that do not use Capital Punishment usually have a lower murder rate than states that do. The South, where 80 percent of all executions take place, has a higher murder rate than the North. People wouldn't want to go to prison where anything can happen. The inmates at prison hate it because they basically have no life in prison. The death penalty makes society more dangerous by further increasing violence through the brutalization effect.
Guilty people deserve to be punished in proportion to the severity of their crime. Crime is when an individual violates the laws and regulations of their country. Capital punishment is also known as death penalty. Capital punishment is the execution of an offender as a punishment for his crime. It is necessary for those who refuse to accept unjust administration of punishment.
Critics may disagree and say that it would go against the Constitution saying that there shall be no cruel or unusual punishment. The ability to handle out the death penalty should be available to penalize the felons with the most serious of charges. The death penalty would bring peace to victims' family, bring about justice and further prevent future crimes. I would be the prosecutor that comes out with justice in my hands. About every minute you can count on
Some critics of my viewpoint might point out that capital punishment goes against our human rights. However this is a weak argument because if someone takes away someones rights, they should therefore also have their rights removed, as they have violated their victim 's rights and the rights of the family of the
Capital Punishment is the death penalty for those who commit murder. The thought behind this punishment is a life for a life. There has been debate on if the death penalty is right or wrong. Some poeple want the death penalty to be illegal while others argue it is needed to deter crime. There are many valid arguments regarding the death penalty.
First of all I believe this punishment violates the fundamental principles of human rights according to the United Nation’s Universal Declaration which says everyone has the right to life, liberty and security no matter what is their status, but unfortunately there is no prohibition against the death penalty in international law. There is no clue that the death penalty can reduce the crimes more than life imprisonment. It only can effects the pre-programmed crimes. So in the best case, the offender is aware of the legal consequences of his behavior. Criminal experts say that when the guilty conscious, planned the cruel crime, she is not thinking about being arrested so the death penalty cannot stop the murder.
However, this very thinking contradicts our justice system that believes a defendant is “innocent until proven guilty,” by basically saying that justice doesn’t even pertain to capital punishment. You can’t say justice is being served and the person is innocent until proven guilty when you have the wrong person sitting in their cell on death row. Still, proponents believe our justice system should be principled on the proverb “an eye for an eye.” However, Byler goes on to argue, “Nobody advocates punishing rapists with rape or molesting molesters, yet the death penalty is deemed an appropriate response to violent crime” (Byler). And so opponents of the death penalty argue: Why can’t
Many people oppose capital punishment, while others agree with it. There are many reasons why a criminal would get the death penalty, for instance, they murder people or killed a judge or a jury member. In the O.J. Simpson vs. the people case, capital punishment was off the table. One of the reasons that it was off the table was because he “didn’t have a long criminal record”(Mydans,1994).
Capital punishment, or the death penalty, is a legal process in which a person is put to death as a punishment for a crime by the government of a nation. The United States is in the minority group of nations that uses the death penalty. There are thirty-three states that allow capital punishment and seventeen states that abolished it (Death Penalty Information Center). The morality of the death penalty has been debated for many years. Some people want capital punishment to be abolished due to how it can cost a lot more than life imprisonment without parole, how they think it is immoral to kill, and how innocent people can be put to death.
