Should the death Penalty be legal
or illegal Dzhokhar Tsarnaev the bomber who caught Americas attention. The
Story of his crime and punishment began with the shocking bloodbath at the 2013
Boston Marathon. The manhunt that paralyzed a city and the death sentence
handed down by a federal jury on May 15 after a two phase trial. Justice has
been done, in the opinion of 70% of those surveyed Washington
Post–ABC News poll in April. Support for capital punishment has been an issue recently,
but it remains a strong situation like this.
Now, Tsarnaev is in no danger of
imminent death. He is one of many 60
federal prisoners under sentence of execution. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is now inside a Supermax,
the country’s most strict and secure prison, located in Florence, Colorado.
The United States remains one of nations in the
world that still doesn’t use the death as penalty for certain crimes. Many see
the penalty as a “barbaric and against American values.” says Washington
Post–ABC News poll. Others see it as a very
important tool in fighting violent pre-meditated murder. Two things have once
again brought this issue to a world debate. One issue is the release of some
studies that show a number of innocent people had been put to death. The second
issue is the punishment for mass murders.
Barbaric and violates the Bill of Rights
Whether it’s a gas chamber, electric chair, or
hanging, lethal injection it’s barbaric to allow states to murder before a
crowd of people. We hostility Kim Jong Il when
they murder their own people while we continue in their footsteps. The U.S. constitution,
8th ammendment prevents the use of “cruel and unusual
punishment”. Many polls ran by the Washington
Post–ABC News poll think the death penalty is
violating this amendment.
Life punishment and more effective?
Many people don’t feel much sympathy for a
murderer , keep in mind that death may be too good for them. With a death
sentence, the pain is over at in instant. With life in prison, the pain goes
till that person dies. Prisoners are confined to a cage and live in an
environment of where they are treated as animals. And consider terrorists. Do
you think they would rather suffer the humiliation of lifelong prison or be
honored for their own death?
An example is the September 11
attacks a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist
group al-Qaeda launched an attack on the United States. They were willing
to sacrifice their life for their leader to go with their plan.What would have
been a better ending for Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda, the bullet that
killed them instantly, or a life of humiliation in an American prison.
Strong religious beliefs like Christianity,
don’t except the death penalty. Some find it compelling the thought that Cain,
the first murderer, was not executed but was marked with a special sign and
made a wanderer upon the face of the earth. As Richard Viguerie developed his
position on a capital punishment by asking what Christ would say and do about
it. “I believe that a strong case can be made,” (Mr. Viguerie,21)
wrote in a recent book, “that Christ would oppose the killing of a human
being as punishment for a crime.” This is supported by the New Testament
in the bible about the woman who faced execution by stoning.
