Justice can not be served until the debate on capital punishment is resolved and all states have come to agree that the death penalty is the best way to stop crime completely The bottom line is one method of execution is just as brutal and barbaric as the next says Mr Breedlove of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty The American Heritage Dictionary defines execution as the act or an instance of putting to death or being put to death as a lawful penalty So if Breedloves words hold true then what he believes is that someone going out and killing someone is barbaric In a sense isnt that what hes saying that one way of killing someone is just as bad as any other So if he finds this so barbaric why doesnt he do something about it Many people who are against capital punishment are only thinking of the criminal and how cruel it is for them But shouldnt we think of the families that are broken apart now because of the merciless acts of these criminals Think of Susan Smith how she knowingly drove her car off into a lake with her two children strapped to the seats Think of how they must have felt as the cold water started to fill the cabin of the car and then ultimately drown them Barbaric is exactly the word I would use to describe her actions But yet the jury rejected the death penalty and chose a life sentence instead Mr Smith the father of the two children broken up from the ruling said Me and my family are disappointed that the death penalty was not the verdict but it wasnt our choice They returned a verdict they thought was justice But was it justice that she was not put to death for killing her two children How could someone possibly let her off the hook of such a crime
