Capital punishment has been known to be one of the most controversial topics of the century. Many beg the question on whether or not capital punishment is right or wrong. Some feel it helps lower the “bad apples” nestled throughout society, while in turn betters the rest of our livelihoods. It is sad to see how many people feel that it is absolutely right to kill another human being, when they are not God. Capital punishment is truly inhumane and our judicial system needs to find means of punishment.
Every human being is raised with a set of morality and ethics that defines what's wrong and what's right, and every person is taught to fear punishment when acting wrongfully. Capital punishment is a limit and a deterrent of murders. Justice is not about bringing back the dead, neither is it about payback or retribution; it is about enforcing penalty and the cost for one's own actions to endorse personal diligence. The state has no right to kill and I feel that the death penalty does not rehabilitate which therefore goes against the constitution; it would be more of a punishment to give a life sentence than death.
We must remember that each and every criminal is human and capable of making mistakes. They have the total capacity to feel pain, fear, a loss of their loved ones, and all the other emotions that all of us are capable of enduring through trouble times. Many overlook their families and friends who are the innocent bystanders; they too go through different emotions in the time leading up to and during the execution. A lot of people find it difficult coming to terms with the fact that the person, which they love could be guilty of a serious crime and coming to terms with him or her being sentence to death.
Our justice system contains so many flaws that sometimes go unnoticed; that in reality how is it possible that this system can determine an unbiased decision on whether or not said person is truly guilty of a crime....
