The Pros And Cons Of Enforcing The Death Penalty

122 Words1 Page
When it comes to something as arguable as the death penalty, people are prone to have very distinct feelings on the situation. Some are considered advocates while others are strongly against it. The main issue is that those who are against it cannot be “death qualified,” while the advocates can and are. This results in a full jury, consisting of only those who believe in the death penalty and are willing to give it. The idea is that a juror who does not believe in enforcing the death penalty would not be “qualified” to sit as a juror because he would be incapable, as a result of his faith, to give a verdict of death, should the “circumstances warrant” such a punishment.
