PRO OR ANTI DEATH PENALTY

November 10, 2009 lovelycdc

I am completely anti-death penalty.  I knew this before being involved in a classroom debate.  My side believed it is unconstitutional and unethical for someone to be killed under the death penalty.  Even though they took someone’s life what makes the government right for killing them?  Also couldn’t the death penalty be the easy way out?  Many murderers have no care about whether they live or die.  However, if they are forced to live the rest of their lives in jail they will also be forced to live with what they did for the rest of their lives.  And whose to say that they wont change?  If they are killed their souls are free to move on. 

Some would say that the death penalty is the ultimate punishment, but what’s worse than living in a prison where no one really gives a care about you and where your freedom is basically nonexistent?  Jail gives the convicted time to reflect on what they did and how their lives would be if they didn’t commit the crime.  Jail would give them time to change their lives even if they will never see the outside of a prison.  Just think about it, is it really ok to kill someone over allowing them to become better people and feel remorse for what they have done?

This is to John Allen Muhammad…  Today around 9 your life will be taken from you, so be lucky that you are taking the easy way out, and will never receive the complete punishment that you deserve.
