death penalty: a failed method of deterring crime, is still there in india. this method has failed to stop crime altogether. defenders of death penalty argue the following:
1] The death penalty serves as a deterrent to criminals who may be considering committing a capital offence.
it failed to deter criminals from comitting crime. crimes for which death penalty is given is repeated over and over. for example if death penalty is given to a rape and murder criminal, the rape and murder will not stop. it still is going on.
2] One of the main principals of punishment and the judicial system is that the penalty fits the crime. If someone violently murders another individual or numerous people, then it makes sense for the punishment to be death.
it does not. there are 2 types of criminals: first time offender and serial offender. death penalty is not fitted to this first time offender since it is their first offence.they deserve a second chance. to serial offender death penalty will not finish the crime at all.
there are people who commit crime for compulsion and necessity. death penalty won't suit them either. the principle penalty fits the crime must be interpreted correctly.
3] Some anti-death penalty campaigners describe examples of people on death row, or people have already been killed have then been proved innocent. Today, the accuracy of modern forensics and DNA testing makes it very unlikely for an innocent person to be put on death row.
there are modern forensic test but how many judges can understand those tests? it is very likely that judges failed to understand the scientific procedure. then an innocent man will be killed by judicial machinary.
4]it is argued that the number of innocent people that may be killed is equalised by the number of actual criminals that are set free.
just what kind of argument it is? setting criminals free to equalize the death of innocent people? you will set the criminals free but will not finish the death penalty? what kind of dumbo it is?
5] Putting people in prison, as opposed to executing them gives them a chance of parole (or the small chance of escape), meaning they can commit more crimes. Capital punishment means there is no chance of the criminal committing another crime.
no. it is not.death penalty failed to deter criminals from comitting crime. crimes for which death penalty is given is repeated over and over.
when a medicine cannot cure your disease what does that mean? it means it is not the right medicine. like this if death penalty failed to stop crime, it means that it is not the way to stop the crime. we must find out a way to stop the crime. to do that we must find out the reason of crime.
does not it make sense?
what do you think?
