The Death Penalty
The Death Penalty has been around since and before the Americas were found. Even though it has been in affect for hundreds of years, I do not feel it is at all right. The methods are cruel and in some cases, very painful for the inmate. The guilty should still be punished appropriately, even if some do escape proper punishment unfairly.
