Capital Punishment is considered to be the gravest of all punishments on earth. Everybody has its own point of view on the suitability of this punishment, which often grows into a never ending debate. Does it suits to the civilized society of human to take off anybody’s life? Why not? If an individual can turn into an animal for a fraction of a minute and can perform any brutal crime then he should be treated like an animal to make him repent for his “dare act” and even set an example in front of others in the society. Scholars, Psychologists, Activists all pour into active debate now and then and give various theories and reasons for the suitability and unsuitability of this punishment.

This is the strongest of all the arguments. Human rights which are defined as the basic rights to be given to an individual to lead a respectable life are considered to be the most important right to be observed by any individual. Right to life is the basic right of any human being. Every individual has a right to live whether criminal or not. No human has a right to infringe the right to life of any individual, irrespective of his deeds.

    OPINION:
    The pros and cons of types of punishment
    by Geoffrey Partington

    Perhaps the greatest revolution in education during the last half century, at least in most Western societies, has been the virtual elimination of physical force or corporal punishment in official education. For many centuries, Jews, Christians, Muslims and sceptics had accepted the Biblical injunction that to spare the rod is to spoil the child.

    In recent years, in many Western countries, bans on hitting children have spread from schools to homes. Parents may be reported by neighbours to the police, should they be suspected of any smacking.

    Pros: it lets the uncivilized members of society feel like they are getting their revenge. Cons: cost, efficacy, fairness, accuracy. Capital punishment costs far more than life in prison (primarily because of massive legal costs). It does little or nothing to deter crime, multiple studies have shown, and a few studies suggest an INCREASE in murders (if you know you re facing the death penalty, shooting it out with police seems logical). Many times more black murderers are sentenced to death than white, making the system SEEM unfair. Lastly, there have been several cases where people have been executed, only to have questions raised later as to guilt, and since 1973, almost 200 men have been let OFF death row due to findings of innocence. How many more were killed before their supporters could find proof?

    The pros tend to be emotional in nature and boil down to two things: revenge and retribution. The cons: The death penalty doesn’t prevent or reduce crime, costs a whole lot more than life in prison, and, worst of all, risks executions of innocent people. The worst thing about it. Errors: The system can make tragic and irreversible mistakes. In 2004, Cameron Todd Willingham was executed in Texas for starting the fire that killed his children. Multiple forensic experts have since found that the arson "science" his conviction was based on was junk science. As of today, 138 wrongly convicted people who were sentenced to death have been exonerated. DNA is rarely available in homicides and can’t guarantee we won’t execute innocent people. Capital juries are dominated by people who favor the death penalty and are more likely to convict. Obviously, if someone is convicted and later found innocent you can release him from prison, but not from the grave. Crime reduction (deterrence): The death penalty doesn t keep us safer. Homicide rates are consistently higher in states and regions with the death penalty than in those without it. The most recent FBI data confirms this. Fear of being caught is the best deterrent. Keeping killers off the streets for good: Life without parole, on the books in 49 states (all except Alaska), also prevents reoffending. It means what it says, and spending 23 of 24 hours a day locked in a tiny cell is no picnic. Two advantages: -an innocent person serving life can be released from prison -life without parole costs less than the death penalty Costs, a surprise to many people: The death penalty is much more expensive than life in prison. The high costs of the death penalty are for the complicated legal process, with the largest costs at the pre-trial and trial stages. The point is to avoid executing innocent people. There are tremendous expenses in a death penalty case whether or not the defendant is convicted, let alone sentenced to death. Who gets it: Contrary to popular belief, the death penalty isn t reserved for the worst crimes, but for defendants with the worst lawyers. It doesn t apply to people with money. When is the last time a wealthy person was on death row, let alone executed? Victims: People assume that families of murder victims certainly want the death penalty imposed. It just isn t so. Some are against it on moral grounds. But even families who have supported the death penalty in principle have testified that the drawn-out death penalty process is painful for them and that life without parole is an appropriate alternative. It comes down to whether we should keep a system for the sake of retribution or revenge even though it isn’t effective in reducing violent crime, costs much more than alternatives and, worst of all, can lead to the nightmare of executing someone for a crime he didn’t commit.
