Who hasn’t heard an eye for an eye? However, that doesn’t explain the disadvantages to the death penalty,such as, its overwhelming cost, its biased nature, and the time consumed. MONEY In many cases, taxpayers are against the idea of the death penalty. This is because it is very expensive to keep prisoners on death row rather than lifetime imprisonment. A good example showing that citizens are paying more every year to keep inmates on death row is California.
Second, it costs about 1,000 dollars just to put them in jail, and the Death penalty Is much cheaper. Most of the money gets used on the food from the prisoners in jail. Moving on, there Is a lot of negativity around the society of people. The Death Penalty holds most of negative people, so then there 's more positivity. These are the reasons why Canada should bring back the Death Penalty.
This article discusses individual cases and crimes and gives analysis of the arguments made against death penalty in real world. Firstly it discusses the deterrence argument while going through a number of cases. The conclusion is that it has no effect on reducing homicides but ironically it breeds violence as in some cases offenders committed a capital crime in a territory where execution still prevails while they could have easily avoided it. Second thing discussed is the cost, the research in article shows that it costs significantly more money to put a convict to death than to incarcerate him for life in a prison. Moreover it is shown that in many cases criminals are executed while there are reasonable doubts in their convictions and some have avoided execution by just a few hours before being exonerated.
America’s taxpayers pay around 12.8 million dollars a day to cover the cost of people who own guns, and the mistakes they make by killing people. Machinery like this, and the deaths caused by them raise our taxes by a lot. There are a sheer number of damages incurred when someone is shot. America’s taxpayers also cover 87% of these costs. People who own guns, sometimes can not pay the taxes for their weapon, but it is not a problem for them anyways, because they rely on us to pay their taxes, and they raise our taxes because they want to walk around shooting people!
On average the Federal Mint spends 1.4 cents for every penny that they create. This doesn’t seem like a big deal, but considering that there are 13 billion pennies created annually in the US the cost for creating them gets very large very fast. Making them cost more to create than their actual value. Eliminating that cost would allow the budget spent on the Federal Mint to be reduced and there would be more cash in the Federal Budget to spend on other things. One argument against the elimination of the budget is the fact that it will alter the way American citizens are able to pay for things in a negative way.
Yet, the most disturbing part of this story is that Freddy Gray’s murderers were actually charged significantly less. Their bails were set between $250,000 and $300,000. Their is a serious issue when a country values property more than the lives of it’s citizens. Even worse is the policy towards felons. During the Clinton administration, there were plans in legislation to enact policies that would cut off past and known drug felons(no matter how minor), from all forms of government support.
The reason being is because college is just simply to expensive. College students make roughly $1,400 a month and about $10, 200 every year. $10,00 dollars isn’t nearly enough money to pay for four or more years of college. “Making college free would have one additional benefit: It would drive the for-profit schools out of business. They now enroll 13 percent of those currently attending American colleges, or 2 million students.” Radical Futures stated in their article, making tuition free will drive people to go to college.
Take this gun violence issue that our country is facing for instance. It should have been just one gun violence if only the government did something about the problem right away. But because the NRA provides millions of money in funding to a lot of politicians, any idea for gun control is immediately shut down. It doesn’t matter if thousands of lives are lost each year. It doesn’t matter that our rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness are in jeopardy.
A person who is in pre-trial detention is and should be considered innocent until proven guilty. Some people who are in low-income families do not have the proper lawyer to guide them and will not be given a fair trial, which would congest prisons even more. Finally, with the prisons being so congested, we have to pay taxes for every inmate. The average American tax payer will spend around $20,000 to $30,000 dollars a year, that is equivalent or more than some people 's yearly income. What are we going to do about this?
There is a problem that is very important to me and millions of illegal Immigrants across the country. The issue is the length and the expense it takes for an illegal immigrant to fix their legal statuses. There is a certain type of Visa which is called the U-Visa which is a type of Visa only people who have either been physically or mentally hurt by someone in the United States. This is important because if you detain an immigrant it cost money to keep him/her incarcerated, also if they can work legally then they can pay taxes making more money for the government. There are many families that have been separated because of deportation, in September of 2014 there were 5,100 children in foster care and it is predicted to rise by 15,000 in the
