Death Penalty Cases, Where to Stand?

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

In the United States we live in a culture where we know right from wrong. The idea of good vs. evil has been imprinted in minds of those within the United States over the years from cartoons on Saturday mornings, to reading bedtime stories. Throughout our culture we can see what is socially acceptable, and what is not. However, some people make mistakes, and some are simply just bad. When people make negative decisions that impact others in a wrongful way we refer to that as a crime.

Crime is seen on different levels throughout the law stature as small infractions to very large ones. Today, we are speaking on behalf of the death penalty and what it truly entails. Many Americans are against the death penalty in the hope that people truly have the ability to change. Of course change can occur it takes a matter of time, and in their case time in jail. However, the cost of maintaining an individual’s potential life sentencing in jail costs thousands and thousands of taxpayer dollars. Of course, lethal injection or in some cases the electric chair consequence, which the death penalty holds, is costly, but not at the same level to keep an individual alive.

Although no one truly deserves to die would being in prison for the remainder of his or her life not be similar to that of being dead? Judges have even begun to take their moralistic beliefs in cases when determining whether a person deserves the death penalty. Judges in the past have seen clear evidence that could easily land a person the death penalty, but have simply turned their heads to a stay in prison for a length of time without parole. Although they are saving a life, are they saving another? Taxes that are used to keep those in jail could easily be used to help feed the homeless who have not committed a crime, or help build up public works.

Overall, the death penalty is not a law decision, but one way or another comes down to the moral beliefs of a person. Who knows what the future truly holds for the death penalty, but hopefully justice will be served properly either way.
