My Beliefs The idea of putting another human being to death is hard to completely imagine. I think the emotions involved in carrying out a death sentence on another person, regardless of how much they deserve it, is beyong my own understanding. I know it must be painful and sickening. However, this act is sometimes necessary and it is our responsability as a society to see that it is done. There are many reasons why I am in favor of the death penalty.
It prevents the murderer from ever murdering again, it removes the burden from taxpayers, it is an efficient way to lower crime in this country, and it is also a good punishment because people in this country deserve to feel safe. I feel strongly toward using the death penalty as punishment for unspeakable crimes. I feel that it is an obstacle for criminal activity because of its severity and it will never allow a murderer to kill again and destroy another family. I do, however, feel that restrictions should be put on its uses. Not all crimes deserve the death penalty. Let the punishment fit the crime.
If a criminal performs an intentional cruel murder he should be put to death. It is that simple. If the convicted offender shows no remorse for his actions, then the decision should be even easier. Repeat offenders and people who enjoy killing do not deserve to walk on our streets. The death penalty is the only method that completely separates murderers from our society. Supporters of the death penalty ask themselves the same question, “why should I have to pay to support a murderer for the rest of his life? Why not execute them and save our society the cost of their keep?” I dont think it is fair for us to pay so they can have all the luxuries they have in prison. Shouldnt they be miserable and have to work for the bare necessities, just like the working class has to? Crime in todays world has become more gruesome with the times.
With the crimes comes jail, so more jails are being built for the prisoners. More criminals are being sent to jail and getting the death penalty. Some feel that the death penalty is also a gruesome act of murder, but people who commit crimes should get what they deserve and if thats the death penalty then they should get it, mostly because they are taking up our space, time, and our money. We all live in a society with the same basic rights. We have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness with equal opportunities.
When someone intentionally and outregously attacks the basis of our society by murdering another human being, robbing them of all they are, and all they will ever be, then I think that person can no longer be a part of this society.
