- Topic: The abolishment of the death penalty should be prominent, especially towards the wrongly accused. This penalty is beginning to have a new outlook on whether or not the use of this consequence is reasonable for an offense. The use of this sentence should not be used because taking someone’s life should be allowed. If murder can be defined as the “premeditated killing of one human being by another”, then how is this cruelty different.
- Background Evidence:
- Many studies show that black men are more likely to be sentenced to death because they are black and not white.
- The state of California has spent $5 billion to keep the death penalty on life support in the last 40 years.
- The intentional killing of an individual is extremely wrong this deems premeditation.
- “The execution of a person who has no comprehension of why he has been singled out and stripped of his fundamental right to life”.
- Sources I Have Not Found:
- If everyone who received death penalty has solid evidence for their accusation?
- If an innocent person is wrongfully accused are they sentenced to prison still even though it was inaccurate?
- Counterargument: It is very easy to judge those who make the decision of an offender facing death unlike bystanders who are just looking from the outside. So what is fair judgment for justice for the victim?
