Whereas a serial killer, a person who kills people for his/her interests, deserves a death penalty as a punishment towards the committed crimes. In many countries such as Pakistan and India, people are given death penalty for murdering or robbing sometimes due to corruption of police force which is unfair the criminal as he/she should be given life imprisonment or parole for such crimes. If action may not be taken many people would turn against the government or accuse the laws and would see the negative aspects of capital punishments. Giving punishment would assure the victim or other people by showing justice and that it’s being discouraged while shows the victim that everyone disapproves the act of the
¨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.¨
“There is no doubt that the supporters of the death penalty have more in common with murders then its opponents” (Gourmot). The death penalty is an extremely controversial subject in today 's society. The idea of taking another person 's life is completely inhuman, even if it is a life of a soulless murderer or criminal in general. The overall concept of the death penalty is easy to understand, but all the emotional aspects are extremely complex. I have a difficult time understanding the hypocritical mindset of the death penalty, the idea of taking a criminal 's life because they may have taken someone else 's. Why kill people that killed people to display that killing is wrong.
The Salem girls should be punished for their acts of involuntary manslaughter because when they accused many of witchery even though they weren't witches, most of the accused were hanged. Evidence for this is during a conversation between Reverend Hale and Danforth , when Hale says “I have signed seventy-two death warrants”(Miller.239-243). Evidence shows that after many Court sessions the accused of the Salem girls were appointed to death by hanging which is involuntary manslaughter. The reason why Judge Danforth too should be punished, is that when Abigail left town with stolen money the trials should have ended but he kept continuing them. The evidence for Abigail leaving with stolen money is presented during a conversation between Parris and Danforth, when Parris says “My niece, sir, my niece - I believe she has vanished my strongbox is broke into....

A large quantity of criminals got put to death on a cross, beheaded, or torn apart by beasts! To try and dissuade people from breaking the law, they severely punished people who committed crimes. One thing Rome could have done better is to not have had such brutal punishments that mostly always end up killing
Peasants and laborers were most commonly killed although nobility and those of upper classes were also put to death. The decisions of who would be executed we're made by the revolutionary tribunal. Even Robespierre the supporter and leader of the national convention was killed at the end. People who were accused or even having a slight possibility of being counterrevolutionary, being against the revolution and government, were arrested and most commonly put to death. This was also happening during the Egyptian Revolution.
Murder can be defined as “the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another”. How then, are others able to make us sympathize with not only murderers, but people who have committed horrendous crimes? For example, the media is constantly attempting to humanize rapists and even terrorists with phrases like “lone wolf” or “alienated and adrift.” Such phrases make some of us want to pity the criminal. This can be seen when we compare Perry Smith and Dick Hickock from Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.

“The most dangerous people. The people who violently destroy and end the most lives, are still on the outside- they are the people running banks, governments, and courtrooms and they are the people wearing military and police uniforms”. This above quote from the article really shocked me because people who have the most authority are capable of harming others. People who don’t have any sort of authority, they are being punished.
Worse than Slavery, by David Oshinsky, is a novel about post-Civil War America, and the life it gave free African Americans in Mississippi and other parts of the South. Oshinsky writes about the strict laws and corrupt criminal justice system blacks faced after they were freed, and while the contents of the book are not typically read about in history textbooks, it is important to understand what life was like for the freedman. Anyone interested in reading his book would profit from it. With the end of the Civil War came the destruction of the old system of slavery. Many white Southerner’s were outraged, but were forced to accept the newly freed blacks.
During the medieval era torture was considered a legitimate practice in getting a confession or to receive the name of any accomplice in the crime committed. The crime committed and the accused individual’s social class determined the form of torture. However individuals were primarily toured for acts of treason. Torture was inflicted by the Church, because only Monarchs and the highest nobles were allowed to inflict torture.
