Capital Punishment in America
The murderer and rapist of an eight-year-old girl was sentenced to death and then released after an appeal case only to commit nearly the exact some crime again. Is this justice Why was it so easy for this menace to society to go out and rape and kill again This is but one of the many tragic stories that have occurred over the last 50 years. Those sentenced to death row rarely ever make it to the electric chair or gas chamber. The question is why and how. Why do we let these crimes occur over and over again How can we make them stop The answer is to make our system, namely capital punishment, more effective. Capital punishment is one of the oldest institutions in our country and is still in existence today. It has not only been used here in America but around the world for many centuries. There is even biblical reference to the death penalty. However debates have arisen on whether or not capital punishment is actually effective. The death penalty is very controversial in the US. And some states have even outlawed it.
