Corrupt are criminals were indeed very deplorable and everyone knows it. But we can not forget that he is human just like us all. Actions that we hate is not the culprit. He also had a future, have become family responsibilities, have an environment that sometimes expect his presence. All this is a consideration for given death penalty for a corrupt person. In the theory of criminal law when the judge was about to decide a case relating to an offense, regardless of its form then the Judge should see 2 sides, the first is the past, which indeed it became a problem because it never committed a crime, the latter needs to be seen is the future First, in the sense that human beings by nature always want the good will be better able to be beyond even what we think. It means that there is still a possibility of change in moving towards a better course with coaching. Then the future of the family who became its responsibilities, his son, his wife, and other family members who became her responsibility. When the death sentence was handed down could be realized so that instead of the state without corruption but instead gave rise to a new crime figures who were born because the effect of the pressures of life in economic terms because after after the death of his father could be sentenced to death or the country could be destroyed by the kids her father became a victim of the death penalty because based on revenge. Things like this should also be kept.
I agree that the judge/jury should observe but not judge the culprit's past. However, the future is not only about the culprit's but society's future. If the culprit is let go with a mere 25 year sentence (which can be reduced by behaviour) than he/she is still capable with destroying the futures of many others. Many others who have never been found guilty of such a crime. A murderer must face justice, justice and equality. To face the devastation that he/she caused to the victim.
