I your own boss. Medical and retirement
I believe that the death penalty is the best and fairest punishment for peoplewho have taken other peoples lives.
Here are some interesting facts about thedeath 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.Andrehab techniques are so underdeveloped that no one is ever certain that amurderer can be rehabilitated.
First of all, if someone has taken someoneelses life, in most cases their life should be taken also. If a person is soimcompassionate for human beings and just doesnt care what happens to anyone;if they are sick enough to take the life of someone else, their life should betaken also. Second of all, would you rather pay for someone to be in prison forlife in an environment that is most likely better than where they were if theywerent there? You can argue that capital punishment costs more tax dollars.However, would you rather pay for someone who has brutally taken the life ofsomeone else to die than have them stay in a prison that is nicer than wherethey would be on the street if they werent in prison? For example, Considercrime as a career alternative.
It is, you know. Granted it’s not a viablealternative for me or you. The consequences of being caught would be far toogreat — we have too much to lose. But consider, of all the things we’re notwilling to risk sacrificing, there are lots and lots of people who don’thavethose things.
For someone in that position, consider the advantages: Noeducation requirements. No previous experience needed. No startup capitalrequired in most cases, and minimal capital required in any case. Flexible workhours.
Be your own boss. Medical and retirement plans provided free by thegovernment. Low risk. Low risk? Well, yes.
The odds of being apprehended at allare very low, and even if you are arrested you’ll get free legal assistance Andplus, prisons are becoming more and more crowded. The governments solution toovercrowded prisons is to spend billions of tax dollars to make more of them.This is a lot more than it is going to cost the government to execute someone.
Next, since most inmates receive parole when they have life in prison forkilling someone, the murderer is back on the street in 20-40 years. Would youwant them back out there killing more innocent people? Since the prisons arebecoming more and more crowded, people in the prisons are more likely to be letout earlier to make room for more prisoners, putting the original murderers backout on the streets Lastly, and I believe, most importantly, what if someone wereto brutally murder one of your family members. Wouldnt you want the murdererto die? Why would you want them still in a jail, knowing that he is receivingample amounts of food and still living his life after killing someone so closeto you? Most people who are against the death penalty argue that it is cruel andunusual punishment. What they dont think about is what the murderer did wasalso cruel and unusual.
You can also argue that the death penalty is notbiblically right, but I believe God was addressing the legal community inLeviticus 24:7 when he says, And he that killeth any man shall surely be putto death, and in Numbers 35:31 when he says, Ye shall take no satisfactionor ransom for the life of a murderer which is guilty of death:but shall surelybe put to death. Men have never ceased to kill their own kind. They havekilled in war, in anger out of envy or gain, and have enacted laws authorizingthem to kill those who violate Gods laws. In doing these things, they haveviolated Gods law which forbids the killing of all men. The solution to thequestion of is the death penalty morally right? is YES. For someone whohas murdered someone else, the death penalty, in many cases, is the solution.
Wedo not need these murderers living in our world any longer. Its simple: thedeath penalty is the best solution to people who have brutally taken the livesof others. Why would you want someone who has killed another person: -to be backon the streets in 20-40 years killing others? -if the person who they havekilled is a member of your family, the murderer only get life in prison? -to besupported by your tax dollars in a prison with substantial food and recreationalfacilities? Lets have the US continue to support the death penalty.Legal Issues
