My Beliefs Essay, Research Paper
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 don?t think it
is fair for us to pay so they can have all the luxuries they have in prison.
Shouldn?t they be miserable and have to work for the bare necessities, just like the
working class has to?
Crime in today?s 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 that?s 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.
