Without capital punishment (the death penalty) our lives are less secure and crimes of violence increase
Without capital punishment (the death penalty) our lives are less secure and crimes of violence increase. Capital punishment is essential to control violence in society. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Peaceful life is a basic need of every human being and it’s a core part of Human Rights. Peace and harmony in society can’t be provided without giving punishment to the criminals. Hard punishment such as capital punishment is being practiced in various countries. In this argument I would explain why death punishment is necessary for peace and redemption of crimes in society.
Capital or death punishment has a very significant impact on crimes because if hard punishment is not executed criminals would feel save themselves and think that they could not be trialed for death punishment. Therefor, some people think that innocent could wrongly be executed for death punishment. By far the most important reason which is given against death punishment is the violation of human rights which says that death punishment should not be executed. Most of the sophisticated societies are not executing capital punishment and it’s assumed that we can create a peaceful environment in our society without deployment of hard punishment.
In favor of capital punishment there are so many positive arguments given which have some very strong points in favor of hard punishment. First thing which is very important in this aspect that criminal will always get afraid of death penalty and before doing such crime they will think again and again. In addition, it is said that without deployment of sentence of death, society would be treated as jungle. Furthermore, execution cost of prison in jail is far greater than death punishment which is not a good option in economic prospective. Some countries which are practicing death punishment, the ratio of savior crimes is much lesser than other countries. For instance, in Saudia Arabia death punishment has been given since of decades and law and order situations in Saudia Arabia are much better than other countries.
Concluding this argument I would briefly recap some reasons which are explained in favor of capital punishment. Fear of strong punishment, cost of prison in jail, implementation of strong laws and example of practicing country are the points which go in favor of capital punishment. In my opinion I believe that without giving death punishment we can’t create a peaceful society. In last I would suggest that fair trial should be executed for this type of punishment.
