There are also many different sides and views upon the topic. For example, people are for the death penalty because they think that some criminals deserve it. Others think that nobody should be put to death, no matter their crimes. One issue is that it does cost more to have people put to death rather than a life sentence without the chance of parole. Another issue is that there is a small chance that an innocent person could get convicted and sentenced to death killing an innocent man.
The Death Penalty, loss of life due to previous crimes and actions, is believed by some to be extremely costly, inhumane, and cruel unlike some others whom believe it is just, right, and provides closure. The Death Penalty is not a quick and easy process. Most who get sentenced to deaths row wait years for their ultimate punishment of death. Some believe that it is not right to punish and kill a human for actions they have done because, they believe that the inmate should have another chance. Then others believe that it is right to punish someone for their actions especially if their actions involve killing another or multiple humans.
We tend to dehumanize criminals and forget that they too are real people who have the capacity to experience pain, fear and loss. There is no way to know what exactly death feels like, but it's an indisputable fact that the process before an execution can have extreme effects on a prisoner's mental health. How would you feel if you knew you were to be executed in 72 hours time? Not only do executions affect the convict, but also society as a whole. During the 17th and 18th centuries people became so used to public hangings that eventually they came to enjoy the display.
Those who are insane can be declared innocent if proven “not aware” of what they were doing when they were committing a crime and breaking the law. The mentally insane are able to be given smaller punishment, no jail time, or no punishment. These people are also given treatment for their mental illness but, it is not much better than imprisonment. These defendants may have committed a horrible crime, but will not be punished for it, because they are insane. Some defendants may use the insanity plea to escape imprisonment, but they are not truly insane.
Everyday in our country there are killings being committed by innocent people who made a choice they would never even think necessary. The choice to kill another is rarely even a choice, but a sacrifice. Many times in our society we think of killings as murder, but this simply isn’t always the case. Many of those who are forced to make such tough decisions are victims or at the very least, well-intentioned people who are trying to end someone else’s suffering. In the case of Capital Punishment, those who murder should pay the ultimate price for something they have taken themselves… their life.
They may have been an influence on the death, but it was never proved. She was often sick, which could have been a bigger influence. Since there are multiple influences on a person, this judge should not be able to determine if an influencer should have consequences or not. People should be responsible for their actions; however, due to an infinite amount of influences on a person’s life, not everyone should have repercussions. Likewise, only people who committed an act of murder should have consequences created by an unbiased court and not the morals of one man.

Does the death penalty violate the 8th Amendment? According to the National Constitution Center, the 8th Amendment states “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted” (“Amendment VIII”). There is no objective answer to this, because the courts never clearly stated that the death penalty is cruel and unusual. I do not agree with any part of the death penalty simply because I believe it is cruel in the sense that it strips man of his “right to life” as declared in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The death penalty has been significantly changing according to these six cases: Atkins v. Virginia (2002), Roper v. Simmons (2002), Kennedy v. Louisiana (2008), Graham v. Florida (2010), and Miller v. Alabama (2012).
Capital Punishment also known as the death penalty is a controversial topic. A lot of people think that the death penalty is against human rights; however, what right does a criminal have to take a life or to do grotesques crimes? Others say the death penalty say that the consequences of the death penalty are irreversible. But, wasn’t the criminal taking someone else’s life also irreversible? Criminals don’t think to value theirs or the other people’s lives.
I tend to lean more towards the death penalty because it seems like the just thing to do. I know we all make mistakes but it 's crazy to me to let someone live who has killed an innocent person, and most people can 't just kill a person because they wanted to, I feel like you have to be pretty crazy to do such a thing. At the same time though as people we are not perfect and we make mistakes, we have sent hundreds of people to death row and they were not guilty. That shows we are not perfect, but to me if I know the person is guilty and there is no doubt about it I would send them to death row, but if there is a doubt in my mind I couldn 't do
When they arrive what do they expect? A world where everyone receives justice? How can there be justice for all in America when the Criminal Justice system is biased? Approximately 80 years ago, the same kind of discrimination was present in America’s Criminal Justice system. Even though America has come a long way since Jim Crow laws, the legal system has yet to provide justice for all.
