We believe that the death penalty is an ineffective, cruel, and simplistic response to the serious and complex problem of violent crime. It institutionalizes discrimination against the poor and people of color, diverts attention and financial resources away from preventative measures that would actually increase public safety, risks the execution of innocent people, and does not deter crime. It’s time to end this costly, failed system.

What says the law? You will not kill. How does it say it? By killing!
-Victor Hugo, author of Les Miserables

I''''m of the opinion that we should eliminate capital punishment. Having been involved with justice agencies around the world, it''''s been somewhat embarrassing, quite frankly, that nations just as so-called civilized as ours think we''''re barbaric because we still have capital punishment.
-Reginald Wilkinson, was a prison director in Ohio

The idea of putting another human to death is hard to completely fathom. The physical mechanics involved in the act of execution are easy to grasp, but the emotions involved in carrying out a death sentence on another person, regardless of how much they deserve it, is beyond my own understanding. However, this act is sometimes necessary and it is our responsibility as a society to see that it is done. Opponents of capital punishment have basically four arguments.

The second argument against capital punishment is that it is unfair in its administration. Statistics show that the poor and minorities are more likely to receive the death penalty. Once again, this is a separate issue. It can’t be disputed sadly, the rich are more likely to get off with a lesser sentence, and this bias is wrong. However, this is yet another problem of our current court system. The racial and economic bias is not a valid argument against the death penalty. It is an argument against the courts and their unfair system of sentencing.

The worst thing about it. Errors: As of today, 139 wrongly convicted people who were sentenced to death have been exonerated. DNA, is rarely available in homicides and can’t guarantee we won’t execute innocent people. Obviously, if someone is convicted and later found innocent you can release him from prison, but not from the grave. Crime reduction (deterrence): The death penalty doesn t stop others from committing murder. Homicide rates are consistently higher in states and regions with the death penalty than in those without it. The most recent FBI data confirms this. Keeping killers off the streets for good: Life without parole, on the books in 49 states (all except Alaska), also prevents reoffending. It means what it says, and spending 23 of 24 hours a day locked in a tiny cell is no picnic. Two advantages: -an innocent person serving life can be released from prison -life without parole costs less than the death penalty Costs, a surprise to many people: The death penalty is much more expensive than life in prison. The high costs of the death penalty are for the complicated legal process, with the largest costs at the pre-trial and trial stages. The point is to avoid executing innocent people. There are tremendous expenses in a death penalty case whether or not the defendant is convicted, let alone sentenced to death. Who gets it: Contrary to popular belief, the death penalty isn t reserved for the worst crimes, but for defendants with the worst lawyers. It doesn t apply to people with money. When is the last time a wealthy person was on death row, let alone executed? Victims: People assume that families of murder victims certainly want the death penalty imposed. It just isn t so. Some are against it on moral grounds. But even families who have supported the death penalty in principal have testified that the drawn-out death penalty process is painful for them and that life without parole is an appropriate alternative. It comes down to whether we should keep a system for the sake of retribution or revenge even though it isn’t effective in reducing violent crime, costs much more than alternatives and, worst of all, can lead to the nightmare of executing someone for a crime he didn’t commit.

i think of all newborn molesters would desire to be positioned to sleep! i m conscious that could eliminate an excellent component to the human race, yet think of roughly it, anybody left would be so scared they possibly would not do it. As for each guy or woman else, in the event that they dedicated the crime, are got here upon responsible and are frightened of dying then i think of they might desire to be positioned to sleep. enable them to sense the phobia of dying basically like their sufferers. in the event that they re waiting to die then i think of we would desire to consistently shop them alive in penitentiary. And when I say penitentiary, I recommend one meal an afternoon, no t.v., no air con, no gyms (in undemanding terms to lead them to bigger! it is stupid), no privileges in any respect. Prisoners in specific circumstances say, "they cope with us like animals", properly i think of in the event that they did no longer act like animals they might not be in there in the 1st place. i think of they might desire to artwork yet in undemanding terms to pay for their outfits, nutrients, facility expenditures, and pay a small element general to the sufferers or their families. That way general they re reminded of why they re in there! I do think of the charge would desire to flow to a financial employer account the place the sufferers are no longer reminded on a daily basis of the journey. That way they are able to handle it on their own while they re waiting. i myself do agree the sole time they might desire to apply the dying penalty is while they be attentive to for specific they dedicated the crime. As for criminals who quite did no longer bodily injury anybody i think of they might desire to positioned them in a reformatory removed from the irritating-middle criminals, yet I nevertheless think of they might desire to artwork for each little thing.
