Capital punishment should be banned

Capital punishment is killing the person legally for capital crimes.
  • The biggest flaw of capital punishment is motivation! Criminals and terrorists get more rebellious.
  • Such punishments may not stop crimes from happening because no one is born criminal.
  • We as humans should have no rights to kill someone this way.
  • Capital punishment has been there for ages in many countries. Yet the rate of crime is seemingly increasing.
  • Capital punishment cannot avoid crimes. People need to be educated and explained the consequences rather than killing them.
  • It can be extremely devastating for the families. It may lead to even worst situations.

  • Capital crimes should not be banned as it created a sense of fear amongst people.
  • Criminals and terrorists if caught and subjected to capital punishment, other may hesitate to commit such an offence again.
  • There are so many criminals who escape from the jails and commit even worst crimes. Capital punishment can avoid this.
  • Most of the criminals who commit this are resistant to small punishments.
An offence certainly cannot be forgiven. We as humans can decide what an offence is or not. But we have no rights to kill anyone even though it may be legal. Terrorism can be sorted with peace.

Capital punishment should be banned
Capital punishment should be banned, because nobody has the right to place judge whether another person lives or not. Right to life is one of the fundamental rights of humanity. You might think that terrorists deserve to be killed because they take lives. But remember what Mahatma Gandhi said,"If the whole world follows the principle of ''an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth'', then everyone on this planet will become toothless
and blind.

As for those arguments that capital punishment generates fear in criminals and reduces crime rate, they''re completely based on conjecture by people who haven''t done any research in this topic. There is no credible evidence that the death penalty deters crime more effectively than a prison term. In fact, evidence reveals the opposite. Since abolishing the death penalty in 1976, Canada''s murder rate has steadily declined and as of 2016 was at its lowest since 1966. Capital punishment could be the underlying cause for increased rate of crime in India.

Second issue with capital punishment is that you cannot take it back. The death penalty is irreversible. Absolute judgments may lead to people paying for crimes they did not commit. For example, an individual from Texas, USA Cameron Todd Willingham was executed in in 2004 for allegedly setting a fire that killed his three daughters. Following his execution, further evidence revealed that Willingham did not set the fire that caused their deaths. But it was merely an accident.

In 2017 two countries – Guinea and Mongolia – abolished the death penalty for ALL crimes.

Today, 106 countries (the majority of the world’s states) have turned their backs on the death penalty for good.Those that continue to execute are a tiny minority standing against a wave of opposition.

There are countless arguments for and against the death penalty. In an imperfect world where we can never be sure we have ever got the “worst of the worst” is it ever justified to take a life?

Capital punishment should not be banned. The people who get capital punishment are people who get engaged in heinous crime such as rape and murder and by doing so these people lose their right to life that any international law, domestic legislation and constitution bestows upon them. Criminal recidivism rates are at an all-time high and the criminal reforms clearly does not make a difference to them and it does not stop them to commit crimes like rapes and murders. Capital punishment is a last resort for these criminals who have no fear whatsoever.
