Living in a world where more than 10.1 million people are held in penal institutions, many countries have decided to go for a more cruel kind of retribution. Capital punishment, one of the many subjects in which several points of view have been expressed, has always been an issue concerning human rights. Whether a man should punish another by taking away his life or keeping him in jail is basically what most people are concerned about. Being entirely useless, cruel, and sometimes even unjust, Capital punishment should be abolished.
Capital punishment is a legal process in which a person is put to death as a punishment for a committed crime. Capital punishment has always existed in many different forms. The first established death penalty laws date as far back as the Eighteenth century B.C. Today, 98 countries do not legalize under any circumstances such a law, when 42 others have it abolished but still do allow it when it comes to some obvious exceptions. The world is therefore left with 58 countries retaining capital punishment.( Death Penalty Information Center ). As a subject of controversy, many major organizations have been taking care of the case in order to defend their cause in front of the government: NCADP (National Coalition to Abolish Death Penalty) and the WCADP (World Coalition Against the Death Penalty) are one of the many organizations working on the abolition of capital punishment. Being legalized in many countries, capital punishment has several laws and special conditions followed by the government before the execution. The main condition after which death penalty is immediately taken into consideration is murder. All murderers have therefore a very huge chance of losing their lives.
First of all, Capital…
…ut it still does frighten and affect a very negligible part of society which still makes a tiny difference. Being also used mistakenly with the orders of justice, capital punishment has been taking away many innocent lives that were later proven irresponsible for the crimes they were accused for. Capital punishment is thus even responsible for the deaths of many innocents, and being an irrevocable punishment makes the case even worse. Human Rights should come in the way of the government in order to prevent such faults and inhuman acts, the punishment should certainly be taken into consideration again so that hopefully the right decision would be finally taken. Capital punishment should therefore no longer exist in these societies that are nowadays ameliorating many different aspects of one’s daily life in order to assure the best lives human beings could ever lead
