This argument can be compared to if a police officer shoots an innocent man, the country should purge police officers of their weapons. When reviewing at the examples, one argument cannot be made without including the other. For the good of the country, some sacrifices must undeniably be made. The Death Penalty system needs to be revised to produce positive results and deliver justice promptly. The death penalty must remain a valid source of punishment because with the court system we have today, most sentenced for murder do not receive a life sentence and are released back into the public after a couple years.
I do not believe this to be true, I believe that long-term imprisonment is what criminals are not afraid of. It is said that the death penalty encourages and legitimizes unlawful killing. But let’s think about it “murder, is unlawful and undeserved while the death penalty is lawful and deserved for unlawful act.” Imprisonment will never be a harsh enough punishment because they live off of our taxes, and it is sad to say that we are paying to keep these criminals alive. But most religious people will argue that capital punishment is breaking one of the Ten Commandments but the bible also says that “it is an eye for an eye.” That statement does not mean that when a person does something to you, you do it back but God put rules and people on this earth and gave them choices to make and I feel that if you truly love your brothers and sisters within this world the death sentence is appropriate because your are keeping them from hurting any other people. So many non-supporters of the death penalty say they are against it because of racial discrimination, or how it treats humans as like animal, or that it is cruel and unusual, or that retribution is another word for revenge and therefore they believe that life imprisonment is a just enough punishment.
Gun Control The debate about gun control is a global issue. However, it is more controversial in the united states of America. Therefore, this paper will discuss the case for gun control and the case against gun control in reference to the United States. The groups against gun control show concern about violent crime and they don’t perceive gun control is the answer to violence committed using guns. However, they support strict laws against gun-related crimes and better enforcement of those laws.
Victims’ Right’s Vengeance Derrick White University of Phoenix CJA/324: Ethics in Criminal Justice Instructor: Amy Gordon 9/23/12 When reviewing the information about the victims’ rights in America, I personally stand with it. Although a person is convicted or suspected of committing a crime they also still have rights. Some individuals fail to use them properly, because they figure since they are guilty of a crime there’s nothing they can do, which is not true. Government cannot deprive victims of their rights. These systems are made to view things from every angle possible and notice that the individual made good faith efforts to follow the law, who knows what will happen.
Wright demonstrated the use of this method at the end of his/her letter, as a way to conclude the argument. The choice given to the reader is, “…either we demand the death penalty for convicted murderers or we’ll never feel safe in our homes and on our streets. No one wants to live in fear, so it’s obvious that we need to bring back the death penalty!” By just presenting these two conclusions to the reader, it only allows them to imagine the two extreme possibilities. It is clear that there are more possibilities regarding the situation that the author is presenting – for example, criminals are kept in prison to allow people to feel safe in their homes, the death penalty is not the only option –; however, by him/her only pointing out those two outcomes it makes the reader more alarmed and willing to side with the authors
In the story Antigone, Creon was able to sentence Antigone to death. Though in the time the story was written it would have made sense but today the death penalty can’t be used as freely as that anymore. It is forbidden in some countries whereas others use it but parts of the country won’t accept it. Today many democratic countries use it as a punishment; this includes the European Union, which includes Ireland, Denmark, Austria, Finland, Belgium, Netherlands, The United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, France, Spain, and Greece. The entire Latin America also uses the death penalty, as does the U.S.
Eonia Hutchins 9/20/13 Death Penalty Room 226 Death penalty is a punishment for a person who committed a crime. However capital crimes and capital offenses will lead people getting the death sentence, which is basically an execution. Most people believe in the death penalty, while others don’t. I strongly don’t agree with these cruel punishments to kill people. Therefore I don’t think a person who committed a very brutal crime doesn’t deserve to die.
I think that ‘vengeance vs. reform’ is such an important topic where it can affect the family of the victim and the criminal could have different opinions towards the type of punishment the judge will choose to apply in the case. Victim side will most likely want lots of vengeance or no mercy on the criminal while the criminals side will always think that the punishment they received was too much or that it was unfair. I think that is fundamental for the court and the judge to think for a perfect punishment that will be the most equal and fair for both the victim and the criminal , but not forgetting the type of crime that was
He concludes by saying anesthesia needs to be abolished, and in order to kill a person we, as a people will find a constitutional way to kill them. The article that Blecker wrote supports his view of executing the death penalty more often and without hesitation. In the beginning, there is an ethical appeal since he is professional in this field, his degree and status is shared to help support his argument to the audience. The audience understands that the author knows what he is talking about and all his arguments have a valid point. He starts by ridiculing his opponents on the death penalty by stating, “Let the
Others may think the exclusionary rule should not be used to enforce the Fourth Amendment. They feel at times it is necessary for the exclusionary rule to not be used. I can understand their position because they are looking at putting the accused defendant behind bars and make sure they are punished to the fullest. At times without the exclusionary rule, the case in court can succeed and get the result the prosecution and maybe even what the public want. Sometimes people feel the defendant has too many rights and has more benefits, which could help them get away with criminal activity.
