This procedure is a must to make sure people that are innocent do not get executed for something they did not do, and this still does not guarantee the person being executed is not innocent, there is still always that chance floating around. The community would have a tremendous amount of money, which could better the community if people would do away with the death penalty and just punish people with life in prison without parole. This could save us millions, and it also guarantees the community is safe and at the same time it removes the possibility of executing an innocent person. Innocence and the Death Penalty states “More than 3500 men and women have received this sentence in California since 1978 and NOT ONE has been released, except those few individuals who were able to prove their innocence. California could save $1 billion over five years by replacing the death penalty with permanent imprisonment.
Taxpayers shouldn’t have pay for inmates just because they want to pursue a goal while they’re locked up. Prison isn’t a playpen, it’s a punishment. If private sponsors want to support them, that’s fine, but people shouldn’t have to reward a criminal for their mistakes. Perhaps the strongest argument against a death sentence is that innocent people can be and have been killed. In the movie “The Exonerated”, a film based on true events, the ordeals of six formerly condemned inmates are discussed, among them Sonia Jacobs, whose husband Jesse Tafero was wrongfully executed in 1990.
The last reason Pohnpei must have death penalty is for the safety for the citizens. Government should not give the prisoner years to stay in jail they should be killed right away because when the will be release they will want revenge on the people who puts him or her jail. The prisoner will really want that because they made him or her stay in gates for long time. The leader of government must destroy these types of people for the safety of its
I feel it adversely is shown and sought out to enhance the value of human life by demonstrating the old saying “an eye for an eye.” If government were to lower the penalty of murder it would portray that the victims’ loss of life was less significant than that of the murderer. Some opponents feel that a life sentence in prison is a far worse punishment than death. If this is true, then why do so many convicted prisoners put on death row try to appeal and get a lesser sentence? These prisoners who committed the same act outside prison walls are now facing death with no alternative, as their victim had, and aren’t ready to answer to the consequences. In the case of Stephanie Benton, I saw this with my own eyes.
I think that trying to rehabilitate a very violent person is a waste of money. I also believe in the three strikes policy. If all states were harsher on criminals of violent crimes and all states had the death penalty maybe that would make these criminals choose to stop doing such violent crimes. If we had the death penalty in place for only murders or criminals who commit repeated violent crimes this would decrease the overcrowding in prisons. Why should law abiding citizens pay to keep criminals in prisons for the rest of their
Although the author of this book is clearly against capital punishment, he explores all sides of the issue openly. After reading through this text I find it intriguing to examine the long term versus short term cost effects of the death penalty. Although, the cost of capital punishment is higher up front it is comparatively less expensive when compared to life in prison (prodeathpenalty.com). Costanzo states, “Capital cases are a nightmare for the entire justice system. Police chiefs recognize that death penalty cases are particularly burdensome in the early stages.
This was created because the money grubbing rich media tycoons weren’t making record-breaking profits off of sources of knowledge for students and scholars alike. This law affects every kid, parent, scholar, college student, entrepreneur and every citizen in the U.S., have you ever wanted to read a book but didn’t have it. Your friend does and wants to give you it so he copies it and puts it online for you to download. One thousand other people download it and your friend is now looking at ten years and a five hundred thousand dollar fine. The benefits are for the media tycoons who give their info out to the minority for free, celebrities and rich people, but then get mad when we share it with our friends, mad with jail time and more money than we could ever dream of having.
On the issue of the death penalty, I believe that the criminals who have purposely killed people for no reason should be given the death penalty because if they go out on parole they would more than likely kill again. Another issue that is of concern is education for illegal immigrants, I believe that illegal immigrants should be sent back home, not be educated here because that is using up the American citizens tax
Any amount of time away from your family and friends in harsh in my opinion, but isn’t that the reason why we have prison to isolate prisoners so that they will be reformed by missing the outside world. I am sure if the courts felt that sentencing was too harsh of if someone in congress thought it to be too harsh, there would be a revision in sentencing. My opinion on clemency is as follows, in the eleventh hour of his presidency, President Bush granted clemency to the following felons. I feel that all of these crimes were serious offenses. If these are the type of people that receive pardons, maybe that president should have to give just cause for the
Every year hundreds of people are murdered while the criminal who did this horrible crime continues to live their life until they are put behind bars. When these murderers go to trial, they are either put in prison for live or they receive the death penalty. There are many people who believe that the death penalty is a violation of a person’s constitutional rights, but didn’t the person who committed the crime violate their victim’s constitutional rights? I believe in capital punishment and I believe that if you commit the crime you should be held responsible for your actions. The death penalty is a deterrent to crime and it ensures that the criminal will never have the chance to harm anyone ever again.
