Some people believe that a life sentence is worse than the death penalty, since it prevents the defendant from being considered a human being. Likewise Andy Martin says in his article, “In my imaginary trial of the future, the judge will not be “sentencing” at all. Or rather she will be uttering a sentence, but it is not a declarative assertion. There is no “the prisoner will be taken hence and thence conveyed etc.” It is an interrogative.
If the justice system is trying to stop others from killing then they shouldn’t partake in the same killing process by executing someone. Murderers don’t always think about the range of punishments for murdering someone when they commit a crime. The law needs to inject fear in the minds of the criminals or murderers and discourage them from actually committing crime. We don’t just need something for the sake of it, we need something that actually deters crime and death penalty really isn’t one of them. Death penalty has been in practice for a very long time, even way back in history when people were not as developed as today and this itself shows that death penalty is not an effective deterrent for crime because the number of crimes and criminals in jails have increased immensely in today’s
However, in modern times, debates over the death penalty question the morality and ethics of putting to death one who has committed the same act. Tensions have boiled over to point that many call for the eradication of the death penalty itself. While abolitionists of the death penalty make strong arguments in their favor, the death penalty offers an incentive for citizens to follow the law, gives the state the power to execute

Rhetorical Analysis Most people tend to believe that lying is a way of life, that without it the whole world could crumble and fall. While some tend to believe that any form of lying is a sin and there should be consequences. One author, Stephanie Ericsson, wrote “The Ways We Lie” published in 1993 she talks about how we all lie, it has become an everyday chore to make life easier. She begins by trying to strengthen the bond between the reader and writer showing how they are one of the same. She does this by referencing past experiences, adding informed opinions, and using quotes from other well acknowledged authors, her argument is strong throughout the whole article that lying isn’t just evil, it can be used for good when used the right way.
Abolitionists disagree, stating the punishment is too harsh to serve justice, and it will not deter the committing of heinous crimes. The scriptures of the world's major religions seem to agree with, "an eye for an eye," advocates while at the same time concurring with abolitionists that, the death penalty--no matter the circumstances--is an immoral punishment. From these opposing views, we must conclude that scriptures were written by human beings, some accepting, others rejecting capital punishment. Therefore, it isn't possible to go to religious writings to find an answer acceptable to everyone. In searching for solutions, however, we should look at the Oklahoma City bomber's (Timothy McVeigh)

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.
