In the Name of Justice The state murdering people because of their crimes simply does not equate to justice It is real easy to hear about how the government is doing this wrong or that but the death penalty is abounded with so many injustices and faults that its an embarrassment to our entire due process of law Supporters of capital punishment subscribe to religious and ethical points of view rather than facts and when they do offer facts its always the same argument Its a deterrent The death penalty is extreamly flawed most notably it comes with a very high price tag to an already under-funded correctional institution in America no stable argument has been installed to warrant it as a deterrent and the moral decay it establishes creates among other things a feeling of revenge and spite within society Many people for and against the death penalty are under the proposed belief that capital punishment is a deterrent for crime No study can offer a clear explanation of this theory Almost a dozen states dont offer a death penalty and a dozen more havent executed in over fifty years that have one Are their first and second-degree murder rates head and shoulders above the other states Of course not Some of these states include large metropolis such as Minnesotas twin cites Detroit has a high crime rate in actual number not on a per capita basis in Michigan which doesnt offer a death penalty but Birmingham has one of the highest crime rates per capita in the nation What has Alabamas electric chair not done in Birmingham that life in prison has done in St Paul Deter crime particularly murder Studies have shown that all evidence in view long prison terms punish just as effectively as capital sentences The flaws of capital punishment become too many shortly after they total one This is because of the focus of the death penalty
