Reasons for Abolishing the Death Penalty by Nanette Fleming There are many things that I dont agree with in todays society but out of all the wrong doings that take place I believe the death penalty is the worst of them all I am strongly against the death penalty because it violates Gods rules costs the tax payers too much money prisoners could be wrongly convicted and it is cruel and unusual punishment The first reason why I do not support having the death penalty is that it violates religious beliefs Many religions such as my own Catholicism follow the rules that God sent to us through the Ten Commandments One of the most important of those then states Thou shall not kill If you are executing an individual that clearly violates this commandment Murdering any person no matter what the individual has been convicted of is a mortal sin Therefore anyone who aids in executing people will be punished by God I believe that religious beliefs such as the Ten Commandments are the corner stone for our law system Executing someone shouldnt be made an exception to the Gods rule My next reason against the death penalty is that the tax payers waste too much of their money with the death penalty in place The average death penalty case is appealed three times This means that the tax payers must pay for the same trial to be heard three times This is a very expensive practice Also the average convicted murderer spends 12 years on death row If supporters of the death penalty are positive enough to kill the person for committing the crime shouldnt the supportes be confident enough to execute them in a timely manner Why spend the tax payers money keeping these inmates in jail for so long Tax payers money should go to better society not to accommodate the prisoners that are going to end up executed Another major
