Death - Penalty - Judgement - Crime
The death penalty is a legal process where a convicted person is put to death for punishment for a crime (Golston 10). The term is also used hand in hand with capital punishment. The actual enforcement of the sentence is known as execution. The crimes that are punishable through death penalty are known as capital crimes. In the world today, there are 58 nations that practice capital punishment, 98 of the countries have completely abolished the use of the rule (Scherer 12). The rest use the punishment partially in that; it is not used for ordinary crimes, only for the capital crimes. The judgment determines the methods that are used to carry out the execution, but they include; decapitation, electrocution, lethal injection, hanging, gas chamber and firing squad (Scherer 16).
Ever since the time in memorial, the death sentence on capital crimes has been met with much criticism. A number of people have advocated the abolition of the penalty associating it with all the wrong reasons that they would get. In my case, I support death penalty, and I know it serves all the right reasons intended (Healey 18).
The death penalty offers the only way to prevent the same criminal from committing or repeating the same crime for a second time. A death penalty clears that the evil from the face of the society never to be seen again. People have supported life time jail term instead, but the evil still lives on as much as the criminal might be locked. The chance of a criminal getting parole can give a criminal a chance to repeat the offense again. There is a possibility that a convicted criminal may escape from prison and end up committing crimes once again. A death penalty eliminates all these chances of crime repetition (Kukathas 28)

[...] It gives the society particular closure. People feel satisfied when justice is served. The thought of a murderer walking free ever again cannot be pleasing to the family of the victim. The same case applies to other capital criminals who get to live freely on the expense of the victims. The punishment does not clear away grieve caused by the crime; however, it bring about a feeling of relief not to no longer think about the occasion.
