Capital Punishment: The Just Punishment for Serious Crimes

Justice must be done. Capital punishment is the just punishment for serious
crime offenders and must be imposed. First, the basis of a punishment must be
just and fair to both the victims and the offenders, and definitely capital
punishment serves this purpose by the "a life for a life" principle. Also, it is
an effective crime deterent which , by simply incapacitation of the criminal,
the chances of committing crimes of that criminal is eliminated. Potential
serial killers could not have been serial killers if they were executed after
the first murder. Furthermore, it has a threatening effect to the public,
making use of human\'s basic fear of death, implying that the society would deal
with capital offences with a just hand , by taking away the lives of the
criminals who knowingly forfeits others\' right to life.

Capital punishment is a necessary element in a society. Countries like the USA,
UK, China, Canada, Japan and so on, has been practising death penalty for years
and the results are conspicious. Therefore, capital punishment should be
imposed in every country in the world.
