  • Views On Death Penalty
    277 words
    Views on Death Penalty am all against the death penalty. To put people to death for their crime, in my opinion, is wrong; I believe in second chances. The eighth amendment is also violated. Getting executed also actually costs more then being in prison for life. Last, it could be an innocent death. Capital punishment is a cruel end to our uncivilized society. The practice of it is immoral, unfair, and violates human dignity. Second chances should also be considered. A person could learn their l...

  • No Capital Punishment Death Put People
    283 words
    Why There Should Be No Death Penalty My stance on the issue of capital punishment is that I don't think it's wrong to put people to death for their actions, but it is wrong to put the convict to death if it will have a negative impact on the innocent citizens in the United States. The negative impact I am talking about is the huge costs of the appeals the convicts on death row go through. The costs of the court appeals are paid for through taxes, our taxes. Another point is I think death is an e...
