For or against Death Penalty?

Extracts from this document...


For or against death penalty?? Is death penalty a good or bad thing? Is it just? Does it have a good purpose and reason? Will it help in any way? People will have loads of different ideas on these points, but I'm going to talk about my opinion. Yes, I do think that the death penalty should exist, but only in the most extreme cases.

Dr. Morloc of the criminology department has stated that in countries with death punishment the crime numbers have been reduced over 69% in 2 years, and in one case of over 85%. These are incredibly high numbers and show that this should be brought all over the world where control and democracy lives.
