The idea of putting another human being to death is hard to completelyimagine. I think the emotions involved in carrying out a death sentence on anotherperson, regardless of how much they deserve it, is beyong my own understanding. I know it must be painful and sickening. However, this act is sometimes necessaryand it is our responsability as a society to see that it is done. There are manyreasons why I am in favor of the death penalty. It prevents the murderer from evermurdering again, it removes the burden from taxpayers, it is an efficient way tolower crime in this country, and it is also a good punishment because people inI feel strongly toward using the death penalty as punishment forunspeakable crimes.
I feel that it is an obstacle for criminal activity because of itsseverity and it will never allow a murderer to kill again and destroy anotherfamily. I do, however, feel that restrictions should be put on its uses. Not allcrimes deserve the death penalty. Let the punishment fit the crime.
If a criminalperforms an intentional cruel murder he should be put to death. It is that simple. If the convicted offender shows no remorse for his actions, then the decisionshould be even easier. Repeat offenders and people who enjoy killing do notThe death penalty is the only method that completely separates murderersfrom our society. Supporters of the death penalty ask themselves the samequestion, why should I have to pay to support a murderer for the rest of his life?Why not execute them and save our society the cost of their keep? I dont think itis fair for us to pay so they can have all the luxuries they have in prison. Shouldnt they be miserable and have to work for the bare necessities, just like theCrime in todays world has become more gruesome with the times.
With thecrimes comes jail, so more jails are being built for the prisoners. More criminalsare being sent to jail and getting the death penalty. Some feel that the deathpenalty is also a gruesome act of murder, but people who commit crimes shouldget what they deserve and if thats the death penalty then they should get it, mostlybecause they are taking up our space, time, and our money. We all live in a society with the same basic rights.
We have the right to life,liberty, and the pursuit of happiness with equal opportunities. When someoneintentionally and outregously attacks the basis of our society by murdering anotherhuman being, robbing them of all they are, and all they will ever be, then I thinkthat person can no longer be a part of this society.Bibliography:
