This is because some of them can’t control their emotional when the other person behavior is too bad, for example a student that been bully by one of the gangster and the other day the gangster die killed by that student. Some capital crimes are committed in such an emotional state that the perpetrator did not think about the possible consequences. (June 16th, 2012). Google can search many news about this phenomena and it not capital punishment is not useful. Capital punishment is only one out of many tools to maintain peace in this world. This could be because they didn’t know how serious if they killed a person. That is why a death penalty campaign will occur to give people know the example how people with death penalty die and it also to remind people serious crime is not something you can simply do. In my opinion, crime still increasing is because lack of event that remind a person how serious crime be punish. Maybe more death penalty campaign will decrease the crime. Some of people do serious crime because they thought no one will caught them this mind set give them the courage to do crime scene. This problem still can’t be solve until now because it human behaviour. Capital punishment can make a person think twice before doing crime but it doesn’t totally avoid them to do

    It is not an ideal situation but it is better than dying for a crime that a person did not commit. Also, if the person was framed for the crime they are able to move on with their life from prison when they are found not guilty. While there are a few pros on what capital punishment can do, such as the ultimate punishment to the worst criminals to being more cost effective, many studies show that it does not deter crime. The inmates who committed the crime would have still committed the crime due to various reasons, from the heat of passion to being under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Because of this and the fact that a person may be innocent, capital punishment just seems like a cruel and unusual punishment that does not help with the crime…

    But a number of people are still against the death penalty for moral reasons, even though, it would bring them safety. In Stanley Marcus’s article, “Public Safety Requires the Death Penalty” Marcus questions convicted murderers about their crimes, “they had no hesitation in killing again and again because they were subject to no more severe punishment than if they were convicted of robbery - and often even less.” (New York Times Article Marcus). We need capital punishment to frighten criminals and to get rid of them when they do wrong. Clearly, these criminals have no morals about killing, so why should we risk our safety to keep them alive? The convicted killers even admitted that they had no hesitation in killing the first time and they would have no hesitation killing again.…

    When it comes down to it the death penalty should be used more often to get justice for these victims and their families. Many people argue today that the death penalty has killed innocent people. That being true that will not happen today. With science being as advance as it is today innocent men and women will no longer be sent to death for a crime they did not commit. With that being said the real criminal can be brought to justice so the victim and the victim’s family can have it too.…

    They seem to believe in an eye for an eye justice. However, in my opinion, killing people can never be a humane act. Besides this, it is not always certain that all the convicted criminals are actually guilty. Some innocent people might get executed for the crimes they never did due to lack of proper evidences. If life imprisonment is practiced instead of the death penalty, such innocent people can be freed whenever their innocence is…

    This is a very common asked question when it comes to the death penalty. Other cons to the death penalty are, there is not really any evidence that the death penalty deters crimes, and the “offender” that is sent to the death penalty might be wrongly accused so then the system as killed an innocent. Both sides of the argument have some really great point but really it just comes down to the situation at…

    With poor laws to help this problem or the lack of serious punishment, criminals become careless and are bolder to commit offenses because of the mercy in punishments and the loop holes in the laws of the justice system. For this reason, the death penalty is needed. (greengarageblog.com) It doesn’t violate the Eighth Amendment, which forbids the government from striking excessive bail, fines, and cruel and unusual punishments, including torture. Supporters of the death penalty say that pain associated with the execution of a death row inmate is not likely. The U.S Supreme Court has even rejected the Eighth Amendment challenge, which stated the drug used to put the criminal into a coma-like unconscious before injecting the lethal drug is not completely capable of doing so.…

    The government and law enforcements should use capital punishment, known as death penalty, to eliminate the wickedness, which is the United State’s duty. Some criminals commit a crime because they have no other option to survive, but yet some do it for fun. Of course, not every person who commits a crime should be killed on spot. For example, a person who shoplifts from a local store should…

    However, for some people it doesn’t always mean it’s a fact. Unfortunately people commit crimes because they do not care or think about the consequence before doing so. There is no evidence that the death penalty is effective because it’s an easy way out, doesn’t bring closure, it’s unconstitutional and it 's not cheap. With or without the death penalty people will still commit murder. There are many examples proving the death penalty is not effective.…

    Contrary to Meehan’s view, the death penalty deters crime. While there is no way to bring victims back from the dead, the death penalty gives justice to the victim’s family. When potential criminals know they might be put to death for a crime, they will be more hesitant than if though punishment were less severs. The death penalty makes sense as a consequence for crimes, like murder, where the victims’ families must live with the horrors of being attacked. Allowing their attackers to go free after just a few years is hardly justice.…
