How the death penalty is wrong
The death penalty was reinstated in 1976. Since then the death penalty is one of the most argued about ways about dealing with punishment for criminals. Many argue of the fact that it’s in human and no one should have the right to sentence someone to death. Others argue that it’s the only way to keep things in order. One other argument is that you could possibly send someone who is innocent to death. But no matter what reason people give the death penalty is wrong and should be illegal because it is a crime. If murderers are wrong for murdering then why shouldn’t the government be just as wrong?
There are many different ways of execution that have been used through many years and decades. Certain states allow certain ways of executions such ways are by: firing squad, hanging, gas chamber, electrocution, and lethal injection. Lethal injection is the most common way of execution. Few states don’t allow executions but not many.
The people who tend to believe that the death penalty is not our right are strong religious believers. When people consider that no human has the right to determine whether a person deserves to live because they believe that only God has that right and
To take some ones life and putting it in the governments hand is considered a sin.
Arguments that the death penalty is the only way to keep things in order aren’t true. The government believes that they have the right to kill a killer for the simple fact that it is the government, and cause of that they see no harm. Our government believes that penalty by death is justice and puts fear in people to stop killers from killing. If the death penalty were the only way to keep things in order then so many people wouldn’t be committing such crimes as murder and assistance to murder. If sentencing people to death kept people in order you would think that murder would stop but it still goes on.
The thought of being put to death doesn’t even cross...
