Shown from the math above and the proof it is fair to say that Romeo is a serial killer. He isn't just any ordinary serial killer though he is the best at his job killing 1 person every 0.8 days. Not only is he a serial killer but he made up a mastermind plan to “fall in love” with Juliet and then make a plan to kill some more people, and when he was getting close to being caught he killed himself never to be interrogated. In the end, Romeo got away with more kills in 4 days than any other serial killer in the
What would you do if you were the prosecutor of a felon who has killed a child as young as ten? Would you put him in prison for a couple years or give him the one thing he can’t escape from…. capital punishment? This punishment is when a criminal who was legally convicted is executed. Critics may disagree and say that it would go against the Constitution saying that there shall be no cruel or unusual punishment.
He received full military honors before a crowd of more than 3,000 people. Medgar Evers was 37 years old when he died. Evers was murdered by a member of the Ku Klux Klan.

The other forms are: electrocution, gas chamber ,hanging, and firing squad.The first recorded use of the death penalty in America was Captain George Kendall of Jamestown in 1608( Part I). The first person who tried to reform the death penalty was Thomas Jefferson. He said it should only be used when the person in question has committed treason or murder(Part I). People that think the death penalty should still be used usually believe that a horrendous act should have an equally horrendous punishment. The people opposing the death penalty usually believe that it shouldn’t be used because all life is precious.
Dahmer pleaded that for the reason of all his murders was because of insanity, but the court said that he was sane and was declared guilty on 15 counts of murder. The 15 counts of murder landed him 15 life sentences in jail, which equals out to 957 years in prison. While he was in prison he became a born-again Christian and gave his life to lord. His time in prison was short lived, he got attacked a few times. The first time he got attacked they tried to slit his throat which only left him with superficial wounds (Jeffrey Dahmer).
Luis Garavito, the world’s most prolific serial killer, is known for killing the most victims in the world. Garavito raped and murdered over one hundred and forty children in Columbia (Heyden). Since Columbia does not enforce the death penalty, he was sentenced to one thousand eight hundred and fifty-three years in prison. The Colombian law states that a criminal can only be imprisoned for up to forty years, and since he helped law enforcement discover a few bodies he was re-sentenced to twenty-four years in prison (Heyden). Reasons such as these exemplify the need for the death penalty and why it is beneficial in America.
Opening speech The UN Charter was signed on the 26th of June 1945, and became enforced on the 24th of October 1945. And so , we used that charter to convict 22 Nazis, of whom eleven were given the death penalty, three were acquitted, three were given life imprisonment and four were given imprisonment ranging from 10 to 20 years. if we do not follow the law that we created and convict Truman, then we have no right to say that any of those 22 Nazis were war criminals. As the evidence will show more than 200,000 people were brutally murdered during the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. the land was laid to waste, and anything within a 1 mile radius was turned to ashe.
The jury had a murder case that dealt with a nineteen-year-old man that was accused of murdering his father from several people. If the man was found guilty of the crime, then he would be sentenced to death. Each one of the jurors came to their own decision deciding whether or not the defendant was guilty of the crime or not. The rising action in the play is that only Juror #8 found the defendant innocent and all the other jurors found him guilty of the crime. In order for the jury to make a decision, they needed a unanimous vote.
This issue of wealth can be seen in an article in which Robert Richards an heir of a wealthy family inheritance received a lenient sentence despite the gravity of his crimes. As stated by the article, “He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended...echoed a recent case in which a wealthy teenager driving drunk killed four but received no jail time” (Conlon and Gallman). Despite the seriousness of his crimes, Richards faced a lenient sentence. This corruption and injustice can be stemmed from his wealth as the judge argues Richards’ wealth corresponds to how incapable he is to fare a longer and more severe sentence. This demonstrates how Richards’ wealth had excused him of a proper sentence and deprived the victim of the justice they deserved.
Holmes was convicted on 24 counts of murder and 140 counts of attempted murder for the 2012 Aurora shooting that killed 12 people and injured 70 others.

Adnan Masud Syed is the accused, prime suspect, and in official and general opinion the murder of Hae Min Lee. He was the victim’s ex-boyfriend, and was convicted of first degree murder and given a life sentence plus 30 years. His big problem in this case is that he does not remember what he had been doing in the day and time of the murder, and that he did not have alibi; apart from the fact that all the evidence against him is circumstantial. The majority of information of Adnan’s background comes from episode one of the show. “Adnan was born in the US, but his parents are from Pakistan.
Forty years have gone by and I think it’s finally time we acknowledge the inconvenient truth; Capital punishment is not a fair means of punishment and disproportionately affects minorities. In the landmark Supreme Court case McCleskey v. Kemp, a study conducted by David Baldus, a late Iowa Law Professor, concluded that black defendants indicted for murder were convicted nearly twice as much as white defendants and black defendants who killed white people received the death penalty four times more often than black defendants who killed other black people. This argument was a highlight of the case, but did not stop the Supreme Court from ignoring the statistics regarding racial bias in capital punishment cases. A vote of 5-4 ruled that tendencies
At the time of his release, Horton had been serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for his role in the brutal robbery and murder of a 17-year-old gas attendant. Instead of returning to prison by the mandatory deadline, Horton went on a violent crime spree and became a fugitive from the law. While on the run, he allegedly raped a woman multiple times, assaulted her fiancé, and robbed the couple. After being captured by police, a judge berated the Massachusetts judicial system for releasing such a violent prisoner and sentenced Horton to two life terms to be served consecutively plus an additional 85 years behind bars. In conjunction with his prison
Can you begin to imagine spending over 30 years of your life in prison over something you knew you never did? Imagine the point in which you were voiceless and the odds seemed to be against you. That is what has happened to so many people in North Carolina particularly due to wrongful convictions. Since 2007 the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission has been able to get over 7 people exonerated from the death penalty and back into society after spending more than 15 years incarcerated for a crime they did not commit due to tampering of evidence, coerced confessions, plea bargains, and much more. The legal definition for wrongful conviction is persons who are in fact innocent but who have been wrongly convicted by a jury or other court
