(United States of America) Because of this clause, many Supreme Court appellate cases throughout history have been debated and established standards that justify the death penalty and uphold citizen’s rights.The first and foremost reason why some people approve death penalty is to decrease the crime rates of their country.If it is implemented by the government,the society would feel afraid to commit a crime thus stopping them from doing malicious acts that can harm or end someone’s life.When someone hear the word Death,do they feel empty,lost or terrified at the same time? In the eyes of God,we are his masterpiece,we are his children which means we need to take care one another. In order to stop this,the government and states come up with variety of solutions and the most popular and debatable solution is the Death Penalty. The death penalty, or capital punishment, may be prescribed by Congress or any state legislature for murder and other capital crimes. Death is defined as the action or fact of dying or being killed In short,it is the end of a person’s life or an organism. Life is sacred to all beings especially humans due to our intellect and skills which other organisms doesn’t have. Crime rates have been increasing rapidly,wars have overtaken the earth11 and thus humanity is slowly disappearing in front of our own eyes. Legal,death penalty is the sentence of execution for murder and some other capital crimes (serious crimes, especially murder, which are punishable by death).There is no evidence that posits the use of the death penalty as being causal to a reduction in crime.According to the NC Coalition for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, the murder rate for the state of North Carolina actually declined following a halt in utilizing execution as a form of punishment. Most of everyone would probably feel the first sentence and only the oppress would feel the second statement.According to Amnesty International, as of July 2015, 101 countries have abolished the death penalty for all crimes in law, while 140 countries have abolished the death penalty in law or practice.According to the eighth amendment in the United States Constitution, every American citizen is protected from cruel and unusual punishment in the criminal justice system.Throughout history, there have been many court cases that have ruled for or against the death penalty, but the issue of whether capital punishment is morally just or not is still debated today (Cole et al. As a criminal justice student, I view the death penalty as a successful and ethical form of punishment on the grounds that it deters citizens and prevents criminals from committing violent acts, is an extremely cheap financial method of punishing criminals that affirms righteous life, and provides retribution to victims and their families.
