The Death Penalty Danielle Mitchell June 21, 2013 ENG/215 Kathryn Geranios As we people grow up they are told that killing is bad and that it is wrong; meanwhile, our government is killing people as “punishment” of a crime. It is ironic how we are told not to do something, and the same people telling us not to kill are doing the killing. There are 32 states that have capital punishment. Those 32 states need to abolish the capital punishment for good because there are people who get wrongly accused, it is an inhumane way of dealing with crimes, scientific studies
In order for this to take place people need to consider the crimes those criminals have been charge with and have been found innocent and still commit the same charges as the first time. Therefore execution is best way to punish someone by doing it out of justice and not just because people are angry and mad. The death penalty is not a big
The death penalty should only be acted upon if there is absolutely no doubt that the guilty has committed the crime. This would rid us of these horrible people permanently. Who no longer have any purpose or contribution to society. Of course miscarriage of justices have happened in the past but I believe due to advances in forensic policing (D.N.A.) and CCTV etc.
Not because Whetmore was attacking them, but because they would die without the nutrients. This clearly to me is murder. They took a life; this is what the law
Lastly, take a look at the punishments corresponding to the law broken. Law 195 says “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off”.Yes, that’s a horrid thing to do to your father, but it’s too extreme to have your hands cut off and it’s also cruel. There are scenarios where a son could have accidentally hurt their fathers, and there are also scenes where children regret it. Giving them a life without hands is basically killing them. We do everything with our hands.
Francisca Ledesma Mrs. beyone 11/21/11 Essay #3 Cruel and Unusual It's always puzzled me how we can show our outrage at the crime of murder by killing the perpetrator. The murder may have been committed in a fit of passion, or it may have been provoked, or the murderer may have a mental disorder in which normal human empathy is lacking and therefore cannot understand what all the fuss is about. But the executions are carried out in cold blood by people who know full well the horror of what they're doing. The victim's family may be excused the desire to see the murderer killed, and I might feel the same way under those tragic circumstances. But the executioner must pull the switch, or inject the poison, and then go home to his family and have dinner.

The Code of Hammurabi had several violations that warranted the death penalty. In our society today, these offenses seem minor and not deserving of such an extreme punishment. For example, if a person stole anything and did not pay for it or return the stolen merchandise, they would be put to death. Also, if a person built a house, and it collapsed and killed the owner who moved in, the builder would be put to death. The Law of Moses would put people to death for sins such as smiting or cursing their mother or father, and stealing a slave.
Ever since the beginning of time, crimes have been committed. While some are worse than others, a form of punishment was still necessary to make the criminals pay for their mistake. Everyday we hear reports about someone getting killed for reasons beyond our belief. The most common reasons people lose their lives are: robbery, money, revenge, alcohol and drugs, or simply no reason at all.
