Should the Death Penalty be Reinstated in the United States

Although the death penalty has been banned in most states, I believe that there are boundaries to a crime, and if crossed, there should be a more severe punishment then life in prison. Act all sweet and nice and they'll have time off for good behavior. If you live long enough, you'll walk among us again. I don't want that. Do you?...

Death Penalty

The death penalty gives closure to the victim's families who have suffered so much. It creates another form of crime deterrent. Justice is better served. Our justice system shows more sympathy for criminals than it does victims. It provides a deterrent for prisoners already serving a life sentence. DNA testing and other methods of modern crime scene science can now effectively eliminate almost all uncertainty as to a person's guilt or innocence. Prisoner parole or escapes can give criminal...

The death penalty should be eliminated. Murder in and of itself is morally wrong. Justice cannot be morally wrong. The death penalty deals with the emotion of man, and not with the justice law is supposed to seek. When we feel a person has done to us or society a grand wronging, we feel it is necessary for this person to be punished to the utmost of our capability. I concede this, as I would feel the same if I were wronged to a high degree. If my Mother were killed, I would want death to...

The United Nations in 2008 banned the use of the death penalty, however fifty-eight countries, including the United States and China, still exercise the death penalty.
