Should America have the death penalty?

Shaikhlymsc2014

America should not have the death penalty because the death penalty system in the US is applied in an unfair and unjust manner against people,largely dependent on how much money they have, the skill of their attorneys, race of the victim and where the crime took place. People of color are far more likely to be executed than white people, especially if the victim is white.The death penalty is a waste of taxpayer funds and has no public safety benefit. The vast majority of law enforcement professi...

The Death Penalty for the guilty

Mopi

Right, I'll be going against why there should be no death penalty for the guilty.1)Firstly, it goes agaisnt the very law of Right to protection of life, by awarding a person the death penalty, we ourselves are violating the law and a violation of law is not acceptable2) Its does not teach the guilty anything, if you look at it.

Let us start by taking a case which I believe would be universally abhorrent. Assume a person A kills innocent girls/ women by luring them into his villa. And t...

Death Penalty should be Abolished in all States

I believe the death penalty should be abolished. I think that killing someone is never the solution, no matter what crime they've committed. People might say that a murder should receive the death penalty because the punishment is equal to the crime, but "an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind". There are alternative punishments that I believe still serve justice but promote a more forgiving and merciful attitude in society....
