Let’s say that it’s legal in their country but that’s an invalid reason to take their lives. Death penalty is such a lame excuse in seeking justice. Aside from that when there’s no such enough evidence that it’s really his crime, death is not the solution. You might just commit mistake. Remember, you can’t correct a mistake by replacing it by another
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.
In the speech that Mill’s presented in front of the government he speaks in favor of the death penalty being used as a punishment, but says it should only be used of a murder crime. Mill’s defends his position on the death penalty by stating that it would lower murder crime rates. Many argued with Mill’s opinion and commented on how sometimes people are wrongfully convicted, but Mill’s responded by saying that the government would have to have full evidence to make sure that person truly committed the crime and is eligible for the death penalty (Journal of the History of Economic Thought, A Note on John Stuart Mill’s View’s on Capital
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.
I myself find that the facts supporting to abolish the death penalty outweigh any reason to continue to uphold it. With a broken judicial system leading to death row. It is littered with racial and economic hardships inadequacies and flaws innocent people are being sentenced to death court systems bottlenecked with motions and procedures that only prolong the impending doom. Many People argue that the worst of the worst of the worst should be put to death and that there is no reason to hold out with hopes that they will change. Other argue that the we must keep the death penalty for a deterrent.
The only just punishment for Roof is death, as long as he is alive he will think he has done the right thing by killing those people. If the trial would have taken a turn where Roof was given to privilege to go back into society there would be no doubt he would execute the same crime, and potentially on a larger scale. Capital punishment saves other innocent lives from people such as Dylann Roof
The topic of euthanasia has caused much controversy throughout the world with many arguments surrounding its ethics and our right to die as a human. The way in which terminally ill patients are not able to choose if they want to die is considered a travesty by many people whereas other believe that it is wrong for the patient to consider terminating their life in the first place when only god has the power to decide when we should die.

There are several different forms of euthanasia such as; active, passive, voluntary, non-voluntary, indirect and assisted suicide.
Our amendment rights should not be neglected as it will just represent the wrong message to society. In addition, the death penalty also wastes a larger amount of taxpayers’ money compared to normal criminal punishments. Lastly, no research has proven that death penalty will lower the number of capital crimes, but has proven that innocent people may have been sentenced with the death penalty. Death penalties do not serve justice, but only serve as a disguise to mask cruelty.
The United States of America is known to be a free country, but would it be defined as being free if permission is granted for citizens to have access to a gun(s) with them wherever they go? In my perspective, I strongly disagree with the fact of that specific reason which makes America an unfree country. This is hazardous because by carrying a gun around with you will often have the reasons like safety but it could also make you a terrorist like other people who want to use it to plot murder occasionally for money or revenge. Some people would agree and disagree with this idea because of many reasons. I personally think that banning guns is a better idea than keeping them for all citizens.
When children become old enough to understand and comprehend words, they get taught that murder is a wrong and dishonorable act. So, what is the United States government telling their citizens when they allow the Capital Punishment, also known as the Death Penalty? They make others think, if the government allows killing human beings as a punishment, then they can too for the same reason. The U.S government is being hypocritical when they say people can not kill others because they are doing the same thing. The Death Penalty is just costing more citizens’ lives that could either be running around the country or in a blocked off prison spending their time thinking about what they have done.
The late, Louis Pojman, was a great American philosopher, who was known for his many writings such as A Defense of the Death Penalty. The death penalty has always been a very touchy subject for most people. People have their views of what they consider right or wrong. Philosopher Pojman was pro-death penalty, so naturally he had some who agreed with him and some that did not. As I read the “Best Bet” argument my opinion of murderers is that they deserve to be killed for their horrid actions.
The morality of the death penalty is a huge debate in philosophy, and even the political system. This serious topic is controversial and has two main sides; there are abolitionists, which are “those who want to do away with capital punishment,” and there are also retentionists, that want to “retain the death penalty as a part of a system of legal punishment” (Vaughn 348). Both retentionists and abolitionists have strong believes on whether or not capital punishment is just. In the book, Contemporary Moral Arguments by Lewis Vaughn, there are readings by Kant, Cassell, and Stevenson that further describe the differences and sides to the death penalty. In addition, many ethical theories such as deontological and consequential ethics can side

The death penalty is and has been one of the most controversial topics debated in the United States since its birth in the seventeenth century. Dating back to colonial times, the death penalty was influenced by European settlers who brought capital punishment with them to the new world.
