Execution is the best method to eliminate the person that committed the crime. There are many cases in which consequences have not been preceded. But the best way to do so is by putting this law in use. Many may differ but in order for this country and state to have crime rate different measures should be taken in consideration. 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.
Just like the old saying two wrong don’t make a right. Besides the cost of putting a person on death row is expensive and Illinois can use the money in other places rather than executing someone. Also homicide rates are a good indicator in showing patterns and trying to prevent future murders from happening. I support Illinois in abolishing the death penalty because of its wrong doing in condemning the wrong people, the
Pohnpei are type of people who are afraid of death if they will hear a prisoner is going to be killed because he or she commits crime. They will surely change because they will be afraid of dying. This will make Pohnpei a very peaceful state. According to Roxanne Rodriquez, author of the book, A Legal Research Guide, stated that these convicted murderers deserve to die (42). The last reason Pohnpei must have death penalty is for the safety for the citizens.
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.
One of most important of the propositions is Proposition 34 this focus on the death penalty yes on 34 is to repeal the death penalty and replace it with life imprisonment without parole. People should vote yes to approve Prop.34 because it doesn’t provide closure for the families of the victims; two wrongs do not make a right. In addition it cost more to execute an inmate than life imprisonment. Although the prop 34 should be approved some individuals believe that the execution of the inmate will provide the closure the families need and it is
The Due Process is mainly focused on the offender’s rights. If our government had to keep using the Due Process that means it would make the case much longer, as well as much more complicated to find the truth. The Crime Control Model makes cases easier by just saying, “He or she is innocent of the crime until proven guilty.” If you take a minute to think about how our government is doing its job, you will soon realize that the more crimes committed using the Due Process would take ages to solve. On the other hand The Crime Control Model takes the matters into their own hands and puts a pause on each crime by needing more information to prove that our offender in innocent but for now they are guilty. This is also known as the assembly line.
Putting some of the sentencing at the discretion to the judges may keep our prisons from becoming overcrowded. Overcrowded prisons not only cost more to maintain but they also force states to release the truly bad criminals out into society before they
Executions may increase murder rates because they raise the general violence level in society and because violence prone people identify with the executioner, not with the target of the death penalty. When someone gets in a conflict with such individuals or challenges his or her authority, he, or she will execute them in the same manner the states executes people who violates its rules. Since capital punishment is brutal, some countries have decided to abolish the cruel acts of punishment. They would rather have the offender remain incarcerated than to hand down such a brutal
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
God gave us life isn’t he the only one that should be able to take life away from us. However, supporters of capital punishment might argue that this kind of punishment is important for the family of the victim of a crime as it will bring them closure and the feeling that justice has been served. Nonetheless, there are some that feel that the death penalty is very bias and unfair. Some feel that those sentenced to the death penalty are those that are mentally ill, poor, males, and racial minorities that are over-represented among those executed. One pilot study of over 2 dozen convicted criminals on death row found that all had been so seriously abused during childhood that they probably all suffered from brain damage.
