Capital Punishment is NEVER the Answer!

        The death penalty is the ultimate cruel, inhuman, and degrading punishment! 76 countries

and territories have abolished the death penalty from all crimes. 15 countries have abolished the

penalty for all crimes, but exceptional crimes, such as wartime. 21 countries can be considered

abolitionist in practice. They have not carried out any executions in the past 10 years, and are

believed to have a policy or established practice of carrying out executions. But there are still 83

countries that still retain the death sentence. The Prime Minister of Italy had this to say about the

death penalty, “The death penalty is disgusting, particularly if it condemns an innocent. But it

remains an injustice even when it falls on someone who is guilty of a crime.”

death sentence never teaches a lesson. All it is, is more violence, and killing to a never ending

problem. The death penalty is violating a person’s right to live!
