Argument essay “The Death Penalty"
The death penalty also known as the Capital punishment has been argued that it is merely to fulfill a desire for revenge. Also many people often questioned whether it's fair or not to continue with the death penalty. Whether or not the punishment is legal, it depends upon whether or not the punishment serves a valid point or purpose of a policy.
The death penalty has been going on for years, and as the years go by, many other states are starting to make the death penalty legal. I personally feel that the court system should discontinue the death penalty. The death penalty only allows us to extend the pain. It allows us to continue to blame one another, to turn against one another, to learn to hate better. Although the death penalty punishes them for what they already done, it's unclear that the murderer has the same right to live as their victim. Many people says that it's cheaper to send a person on death row than to keep a criminal in for imprisonment without a possibility for parole. Even though it's cheaper to do the death penalty, it does not mean for the court system to decide to kill a person. It's basically doing the same thing as the murderer was doing, but its more legal.
Today, the death penalty is still uncertain in many cases if it's just or unjust. Should a murderer get his own life taken or should it be called "cruel unusual punishment." I often wonder if the Capitol punishment is a way to get revenge for what the murderers have done to their victims, which makes me question against the constitution.
No matter how the death penalty is carried out, I feel as if no man should have the power to judge and sentence another to death. Although, what the murderers has done was not right, I feel like being in prison for life is good enough punishment for them.
