Death Penalty Paper
I am against the death penalty because I think a planned death is a punishment that no human should go through. Why am I against the execution? You will have to get to know in the following paragraphs.
In my opinion, it is a better punishment to have someone in jail for life than to execute him or her. If you are in jail for life, you have to think about what you did and why you did it. You have to be the rest of your life in jail, no matter what happens. On the other side, I agree with people who say that to know when you will die is a big pain in your head.

To execute someone is not only a punishment for the person in the death row, itâ€™s also a punishment for his or her family. The murder did something wrong which wasnâ€™t only painful for the victim, but also for the relatives of the victim. Does that mean the law is allowed to hurt the relatives of the murderer? I am sure they donâ€™t agree with what the murderer did, but it could be still a loved relative. So why hurt more people than needed? Only to get justice for the victims relatives? Yes, but it is not justice to do the same stupid thing the murderer did. Ramsey Clark said â€œour emotions may cry vengeance in the wake of a horrible crime, but reason and experience tell us that killing the criminal will not...
