There are many reasons that student peers should not decide punishment for student offenders.
I'm sure you could come up with some on your own, here are some ideas to get you started:

If one kid unpopular for no good reason, say a geek/nerd that everyone is jealous of, students are likely to give him a more severe punishment than what is warranted.
Like wise, a popular/dominating kid will be able to get away with murder (not literally).

Students are not trained in how & when to discipline, the principal usually is.

As a whole, students are more likely to be more lenient on their peers, than the principal who has less bias.
This would be for a variety of reasons, such as friendship.

Students can get together, make pacts, & get away with everything.

The book, "Lord of the flies" is a good example of what could go wrong when kids make up the rules.

my first argument is that if someone else punishes the student offender, we wont get the satisfaction.

Why should students get the satisfaction of punishing a peer?
