A man sits on death row trying to keep death off his mind He knows he is innocent but no one will believe him He sits in his cell and prays with the hope that God will not let him get electrocuted Just the everyday fear of thinking about his death that he knows will come soon takes its toll on him This is a true story of Jay C Smith a former high school principal in Pennsylvania He was convicted for the murder of 3 people and sentenced to death He was released in 1992 when it became known that the prosecution withheld crucial information that could have kept him from being convicted The death sentence should not be legal in the United States because it is unjust immoral and cruel Sentencing someone to death does not give him or her a chance to learn from his or her mistakes and give them a second chance The death penalty is used in many states today to punish the worst criminals The death penalty is reserved for the worst criminals murderers spies rapists and other types of sex offenders There are many people who defend the use of the death penalty and say it saves money gets rid of the worst criminals and deters others from committing serious crimes Many people think people should get done to them what they have done to others Supporters of the death penalty say it is a humane way for the offenders to die and that it is quick and painless for them to be injected with poison or electrocuted They say that is saves taxpayers money because the prisoner is not in jail for the rest of his or her life They also say that it deters other criminals from committing serious crimes and that if we got rid of it the murder rate would rise drastically No one deserves to die no matter what crime he
