People will renew their trust in law. Death penalties for such heinous crimes will help the victims fight the trauma of such mishaps.

Hello my dear opponent.
First of all using common sense I could state that whenever crime is done , its done, its should be punished. Penalty for 5-10 years is enough to bring to the victim sort of a solace, but killing the criminal is something inhumanities. People in most societies are tend to be not cruel or aggressive, society wishes ,on the most cases, rehabilitation but not retribution to them. We don't live in a mid-centres when you can be accused to be witch and the burned to death.

Mostly those who commit such crime recognized as a sick. Giving them death penalty won't improve society as a whole, and the victim and criminal(obvious) as well. Death penalty is a relic term, if operate relic terms, I could recall one of the first Law Codex, written at the Babylon by and basically means "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth". In this term you can made some sort of punishment that will be equal to the crime commuted. So better to shift from the ancient relic law terms and switch to nowadays modern agenda.

All of the Western European countries abolished it as well as partially Latin America, South Africa and Canada. Where it's still exists in Asia, Africa, and US. In terms of humanity and liberalism Europe far ahead over the rest of countries, the reports showing the repression in Russia, China and US only supports with a strong evidence. Therefore the death penalty couldn't bring a solace to a victim in a democratic and free society.

Death is never a solution to a problem and never will be.Let us blame the system not the victim.The laws are just vitiating and the whole system is in bleak-dreary condition.By imposing capital punishment to rapists or to juveniles and by supporting the cause we are just rationalizing ourselves as abaters. This is not an act of perspicacity. Let us together act as acumens rather than parochial and bigoted people. Emotions play no role in decision making and let us be punctilious in that.
The safety of women still remains contentious but let us try to create the awareness and bring that into light through media, social networks etc.
Modernization transformed us into airs rather than to urbane and suave. The problem is they may look trendy in outfits , hairstyles etc. but their thinking still remained old fashioned , ancient and inept.
Pornography is often associated with all types of violence of women. They say pornography is a theory and rape is a practice. Men usually get incited with porn before committing a crime .Collected evidences of swamp pornography cases complements the argument and moreover violent porn nowadays are the trend and can pose a grave threat .
Women are usually sensitive and weak but certain people say women can implement some self defensive techniques and can inhibit violence against them . I am not causing any disparage to women but we cant come out with one conclusion as the causes for violence are wide open and we cant curb the trespassers and punishing them for a certain period is also not the absolute solution as we are just providing him the SHELTER and that too free of cost..
