Death penalty is the best
I believe that the death penalty is the best and fairest punishment for
who have taken other people\'s lives. Here are some interesting facts about
penalty. Did you know that 70% of all Americans support the death penalty?
Murder rates have also been down since the death penalty was reinforced.
rehab techniques are so underdeveloped that no one is ever certain that a
can be rehabilitated (supporting capital).
First of all, if someone has taken someone else\'s life, in most cases their
should be taken also. If a person is so imcompassionate for human beings
doesn\'t care what happens to anyone; if they are sick enough to take the
someone else, their life should be taken also.
Second of all, would you rather pay for someone to be in prison for life in
environment that is most likely better than where they were if they weren\'t
You can argue that capital punishment costs more tax dollars. However, would
rather pay for someone who has brutally taken the life of someone else to
have them stay in a prison that is nicer than where they would be on the
street if they
weren\'t in prison? For example, Consider crime as a career alternative. It
know. Granted it\'s not a viable alternative for me or you. The consequences
caught would be far too great -- we have too much to lose. But consider, of
things we\'re not willing to risk sacrificing, there are lots and lots of
people who don\'t
have those things. For someone in that position, consider the advantages:
No education requirements.
No previous experience needed.
No startup capital required in most cases, and minimal capital required in
Flexible work hours.
Be your own boss.
Medical and retirement plans provided free by the government.
Low risk? Well, yes. The odds of being apprehended at all are very low, and
you are arrested you\'ll get free legal assistance (Savage, Leo). And plus,
becoming more and more crowded. The government\'s solution to overcrowded
prisons is to spend billions of tax dollars to make more of them. This is a
than it is going to cost the government to execute someone (Stern, Eric).
Next, since most inmates receive parole when they have life in prison for
killing someone, the murderer is back on the street in 20-40 years. Would
them back out there killing more innocent people? Since the prisons are
more and more crowded, people in the prisons are more likely to be let out
make room for more prisoners, putting the original murderers back out on the
Lastly, and I believe, most importantly, what if someone were to brutally
murder one of your family members. Wouldn\'t you want the murderer to die?
would you want them still in a jail, knowing that he is receiving ample
food and still living his life after killing someone so close to you?
Most people who are against the death penalty argue that it is cruel and
unusual punishment (pragmatic arguments). What they don\'t think about is
the murderer did was also cruel and unusual. You can also argue that the
penalty is not biblically right, but I believe God was addressing the legal
in Leviticus 24:7 when he says, "And he that killeth any man shall surely be
death," and in Numbers 35:31 when he says, "Ye shall take no satisfaction or
for the life of a murderer which is guilty of death:but shall surely be put
Men have never ceased to kill their own kind. They have killed in war, in
of envy or gain, and have enacted laws authorizing them to kill those who

killing of all men (Berns, Walter).
The solution to the question of "is the death penalty morally right?" is
For someone who has murdered someone else, the death penalty, in many cases,
solution. We do not need these murderers living in our world any longer.
It\'s simple: the death penalty is the best solution to people who have
taken the lives of others. Why would you want someone who has killed

ALCATRAZ ISLAND AND PRISONALCATRAZ ISLAND AND PRISON Alcatraz Island has quite a distinct history. Many people know that Alcatraz served as a federal prison, but most are reluctant to know that this island served as fort. Built before the Civil War, it served two main purposes. First, that it was to guard the San Francisco bay area from enemy ships against a foreign invasion, and second, to hold hostage prisoners of war or POW\'s as they were called.
