Reason Why Death Penalty Should Be Implimented

885 words - 4 pages

One of the biggest issues here in the Philippines as of today is implementing death penalty due to the continuously increasing crime rate and many heinous crimes happening like the Janet Napoles pork barrel or the Ampatuan massacre. As of this time there is a rise of debate if the many lawmakers suggested to bring back death penalty as the capital punishment to lessen the crime rate and bring peace to the families of the victims of the crime, In my opinion death penalty is an inhumane way to punish the people who committed heinous crimes because it destroys the chance to reform and to rehabilitate them.

According to the Pro death penalty people, death penalty can lessen heinous crime rates such as rape and murder. However, there is no actual proof that death penalty can lessen crime rates. According to the Aleck pabico, during president’s Estrada’s term when the death penalty was still implemented, there is an increase of crime rate by 15.3% from 7,527 crimes in 1998 to 82,528 in 1999. In addition to that according to the organization Catholics Against Capital Punishment (CACP) “Most crimes are done out of misplace passion or under the influence of alcohol or drugs” which is true a lot people did crimes of impulsiveness, some humans tend to do things without thinking through in addition to that when a person is mad the decision is impaired and as for the drugs and alcohol, people who intake drugs or alcohol are not in their proper selves when the effects of alcohol and drugs is in their brain. So why bother implement the death penalty if there is no absolute proof that death penalty can lessen crime rates.

Death penalty is a way of rehabilitating criminals. However, it just destroys any chance for the criminals to reform. Because the criminals were already executed either by lethal injection or by electric chair before they have been given a chance to repent or change their lives for the better. How could a lifeless body be able to repent for their wrong doings? Tell me how! Does committing a crime is enough to end the life of a human being? No one has a right to take anyone’s life, because every human life is prices less and every life is precious, once it was taken away, it will never come back, us humans are not God to Everybody deserves a second chance, people makes mistake because we humans are not perfect and I strongly believe that people can change for the better with the help of proper guidance.

Lastly death penalty can satisfy the rights of the victim of...
