Guilty people deserve to be punished in proportion to the severity of their crime. Crime is when an individual violates the laws and regulations of their country. Capital punishment is also known as death penalty. Capital punishment is the execution of an offender as a punishment for his crime. It is necessary for those who refuse to accept unjust administration of punishment.
Us living in a america, were born to live a good life, if we have twisted people who want to try to corrupt and kill why should we allow that? We are putting people we love and care about at risk. If criminals think they could get away with one they are more likely to do it again studies show. 3 to 18 people could be saved from a guilty killer. If you put the death penalty in play criminals will more than likely think twice before doing a crime because they know at the end of the day they will have to pay for there actions.
However, there are those who feel that just as the principle states, one is, and should be taken as a victim and the outcome could be either way: guilty or not guilty. In fact, this argument is supported by the many cases of malicious prosecutions and mistaken identities. The differences The due process model is pegged on the belief that it would be better if a criminal found innocent goes free rather than have one innocent person in jail. On the other hand, the crime control model argues that it is better to have a innocent person detained, questioned, tried and found innocent then let free than have a society full of criminals roaming
All the power of sentencing lies with the prosecutors in these cases. Mandatory minimum sentencing policies were set into action with good intentions, but the law did not turn out as expected. The mandatory minimum sentencing acts were created to provide equality that every offender of the particular crime will serve the same punishment. This ensures that there will be no bias. They were expected to lower crime rates, because people will possibly think twice before committing a crime if the mandatory minimum sentence is five year or if they have been convicted before, they will not want to be incarcerated again for double the time.
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.
¨We reserve the death penalty in the United States for the most heinous murders and the most brutal and conscienceless murderers.” I can see why the Supreme Court doesn 't want these people in prison, because they might kill somebody in prison, or if they get bailed out they wouldn 't learn their lesson and do what they were doing AGAIN. ¨We have the responsibility to punish those who deserve it, but only to the degree they deserve it.¨ I can also see why they think people deserve it for their horrible actions, they believe that since they did some outrageous murder, or a really bad crime they deserve to die. ¨"Whatever your feelings are toward the death penalty, one thing most people will never know is the pain experienced when a family member, or in my case, family members are brutally tortured and murdered.¨ This is saying that families go through a lot when a murderer kills one of their loved ones, and the family wants that person executed. Personally, the death penalty in my eyes can help families feel like they 've got justice, and make them feel like they did something for the loved one that was
Why We Punish & Different Ways Criminals are Punished Why does the criminal justice system of America punish criminals? The answer lies in the words “justice.” The term justice can be interpreted in many ways. Criminals are punished to: make people abide the laws of their country and state, put an end to illegal activity that could be harmful to themselves or the community, protect the public from evil, prevent crime from rising in certain areas. These are just some of the reasons why criminals are punished. There are also different approaches to punishing criminals such as: sentences that fit the crime, community service, the death penalty, and rehabilitation.
In this case the opponents are the persons who would like to pack up the death penalty and dump it on the side of the road along with the rest of the misfits. They believe it is the most inhumane way to do things and we would be no better than a killer ourselves. “My objection to the death penalty is based on the idea that this is a democracy, and in a democracy the government is me, and if the government kills somebody then I'm killing somebody,” as stated by Steve Earle [Goodman]. Though in some sense this may be true, we are killing them in a much more humane way than they must have killed their terrified victims. As I earlier stated they are given opportunities their prey did not sustain.
This part countain 6 rules the first is to make crime unprobtile or has he puts it “outweigh the profit of the offense”(59). This is to scary most people straight so to speak. The second rule is to focus on the bigger offense then the lesser one. The third rule is if someone must commit a crime the object is to have the offender choose the lesser crime.The fourth rule is once the offender as committed the ctime the next object is to stop them from doing that crime again. This done by punishing them in every aspect of the crime.
It is widely agreed that sentencing to prison seem to be more appropriate retribution and more effective deterrent. More specifically, the death sentence only takes the criminals a moment to pass away, while a life in a prison makes them to feel the pain for decades. In addition, it is more satisfy to put the prisoners in a cage and live with the internal environment of violence and rape. Do you think they would rather endure the mortification of long lasting jail or be "martyred" by a capital punishment? What might have been a superior consummation for Osama Bin Laden, the bullet that slaughtered him right away, or an existence of embarrassment in an American jail ?
Bill Maxwell wrote "Start Snitching", in which he talks about how crime is targeting one group. Alexander Natapolf wrote "Bait And Snitch: The High Cost Of Snitching For Law Enforcement", were she states that crime is worldwide. In both essays Maxwell and Natapoff had really good points on wanting the crime to drop, the pros and cons of snitching, But they both define snitching different.
Suspects commit crimes and often the victims are left wondering why the suspect’s rights seem to be more important than those of the victim. It does seem like an unfair game, the bully gets afforded everything, the victim left to suffer. In order for the justice system of the United States to stay the most balanced and civil rights friendly system in the world; suspects’ rights have to be respected and guarded so chaos doesn’t take over. Police officers through the years have gotten better with training and experience, guidance by prosecutors, and increased motivations to “do the right thing” to ensure suspects are processed correctly, and interrogated within the constraints of the U.S. Constitution. Seeing a conviction through to the end, the suspect afforded all protections under the law, and the victims seeing closure is the ultimate testament to how far law enforcement interrogations have come since Miranda.
The Atkins v. Virginia case was one of the biggest death penalty case in the past decade. This rose the question of, is the death penalty a good solution, do two wrongs make a right? The death penalty in the U.S should be used on rare cases. The death penalty in the U.S. may not be the best solution when dealing with criminals because there are times when we convict an innocent person. Innocent lives are at risk.
According to Immanuel Kant, criminals ought to be punished for their wrongdoings. Essentially, it is unacceptable and unjust for a person to escape the consequences of their actions. In order for balance to be restored, a perpetrator must receive their just deserts (Walen 2014). However, it is important to recognize that many factors of crime and addiction are out of the control of the individual. For example, a Bureau of Justice Statistics survey found that in 2005, “64 percent of jailed inmates self-reported as having some kind of mental illness” (Ollove 2015).
