The death penalty is inhumane and ineffective

The Death Penalty is a inhumane act of violence and shouldnt be tolerated anywhere around the world. This act of violence shouldnt be implemented anywhere, but sadly in some areas is still used and applied to those who commit crimes. Some argue that people do deserve the death penalty, if they were to commit a serious enough offense. Picture is public domain.

“I wonder all the time, if I will live to see the end of the death penalty. Capital punishment is the most heinous and cruel ways to punish someone. I don’t believe death should be an option, for any criminal.” Junior Frankie DeBonis said.

The death penalty has always been wrong. No one has ever, or will ever deserve to die. Giving someone the power to take someone else’s life is something that has never positively effected a society, never brought back a life, has never inspired anything but hate, and has also killed many people, who have later been proved to be innocent.

Many people support this strategy. “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” or otherwise known as the law of retaliation, is a law that a someone who has injured another person is penalized to a similar degree.

“I support the death penalty because not only is it way more inexpensive, but if someone murdered someone you love, you’d want them dead.” Senior Thelion Simmons said.

Another argument used to support capital punishment is the fear of being given the death penalty would stop criminals from committing murder. Most murderers feel that they have a fool-proof plan to get away with it. Unfortunately, most are right.

According to quora.com, approximately 6,000 people get away with murder each year in America.
In response, the eighth amendment says that excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. Nor cruel and unusual punishment. There is nothing crueler than death itself.

    I think that there should be a death penalty.They have to be punished for what the did because it wasn’t right, and they didn’t just hurt the person they killed. They hurt there families and friends heart.
