The Death Penalty

Extracts from this document...


The Death Penalty The death penalty is considered by some people not to be an effective form of punishment. Some people believe it is an easy way out for terrorists. Others see it as a way of letting these dangers to society knowing they've won. There are also of course, the people who think that simply taking away another human beings life away is morally wrong. I however disagree with this.

Taking away the lives of these indecent human beings can at least make a small step towards ending terrorism. Of course there is the worry that there will always be terrorism, but at least knowing that if the death penalty was imposed the people who were caught and brought to this country wouldn't do any more harm whatsoever would at least be some reassurance, and a reassurance that also sends out a strong message as well. We Wont Stand For Terrorism. ...read more.
