Capital Punishment Should Be Abolished Capital punishment is a brutal antiquated concept that must be
abolished in the name of civilised society. Each year in just America,
the land of freedom + the just, 650 people r added 2 the death row +
105 r executed. The death penalty is the harshest form of punishment
in the world today. Once the jury has proved a criminal guilty they go
to the second part of the trial - the punishment phase. The
enforcement of c p is a sadistic and macabre activity, which appeals
to the more grim aspects of humane nature: wrath and malice.
Capital punishment violates the right to live, a right everyone has
even if they r mass murderers. No person shud b killed 4 a crime, no
matter how bad the crime is, cos 2 wrongs don't make a right. There is
no such thing as a humane way of putting sum1 2 death.
I feel that capital punishment shud b made illegal in not just
America, but the whole world. The reasons 4 this r firstly that there
is the possibility of executing some1 who is innocent. If this does
happen, it cannot b undone- whereas if the person had been put in
jail, they cud have been released and given compensation.
Secondly, I think that the death penalty is not a punishment cos the
criminal is not here 2 b punished like if he/she was in jail with the
poor living conditions and no freedom.
The 1's who r sentenced 2 death are normally hanged. This method often
doesn't kill the criminal straight away, but lets them dangle on the
rope around their neck, until they die of strangulation, slowly and
painfully. Some r stoned by the public. This is when the criminal is
tied to a wooden post in the centre of town, and is stoned by the
residents. In some countries, the size of the stones is regulated so
that pain is maximised and the person does not die quickly. This is a
pure example of how savage we have become. There aren't many things as
inhumane in this world as c p. Since the public attends, children are
coming as well and so lern dat there is nothing rong with brutally
killing each other. Therefore, more and more children r becoming
murderers. Reason= simple. They c that if they kill some1, they go 2
jail, get the death penalty, and the government, known as the "good
guy" kills them as a punishment. Lesson learnt, the finger is pointed
to its own actions.
Another reason I think that c p should be made illegal is that life
