It is sometimes argued that the crime rate and delinquent behavior could be reduced by doing the death penalty. In my opinion, it would be wrong to take someone's right to life.
There are several reasons why capital punishment should be abandoned. Firstly, the death penalty might be equivalent to killing or murdering someone, and we do not have the right to deter someone to live. Secondly, criminals can re-education and re-socialize, and well be aware of the outcome and consequences of committing a crime. Finally, innocent people who wrongly commit would be executed. As a result, many families might put in many difficult situations, and many children would loss being with their parents and foster in a peaceful atmosphere. It is also argued that the crime rate could not be effectively reduced by killing offenders.
On the other hand, capital punishment could act as a deterrent to others implementing crimes. Therefore, this eliminates the possibility of criminals re-offending. Furthermore, many young people would learn that breaking the laws could follow serious punishments, which certainly execute the murder or offender. There are also many cost-effective punishments which are low cost relating to imprisonment. Another reason is that criminals who commit heinous crimes should be put to death to protect society and reduce the people’s fear, so the offenders could not pose a threat to others.
In conclusion, I do not believe that the death penalty could reduce aggressive behaviors and deter criminals from implementing crimes.
