Some people believe that capital punishment should be legal while others refute this opinion. Do you agree or disagree
We are living in the world of formidable evil, injustice and detest. Crimes involving murders are flourishing on the bed of envy and hatred. In order to put an end to these acts of folly stringent measures should be taken, on the account of civilians' protection. Yet, what type of punishment should be given to the criminals, whether capital punishment or life time imprisonment, is a question needs to be answered. From my view point capital punishment is the answer.
Cited by a few people that death penalty is morally and ethically unjustified. A murder may be in self-defence or a juvenile conviction or involving a person falsely accused for it, giving such punishment to them will cause lose of innocent lives and leaving their relatives in disparity and grieving on the death of their loved ones.
However, it is exclaimed by the other group of individuals that to ensure the safety of the public and to reduce the crime rate in the society capital punishment is incumbent, since it has a deterrent effect. The thought of death penalty will prevail on the mind of the criminal and deliberately refrain him from the crime.
Moreover, in life time imprisonment various means of escaping can become possible. In many countries, bribery and internal corruption are making people with better fortunes and high connections to pay for their way out. Furthermore, to gratify the feeling of revenge and preventing more bloodshed, punishment of life-for-life will be prudent.
Concluding, I believe that for the benefit of the society and to keep the crime rate at the lowest level capital punishment should be mandatory.
