Capital punishment known as the death penalty is not practiced in all states In order to receive or qualify for the death penalty you would have to commit murder which is taking an innocent person life away from our society To commit an unpleasant act like that a person has to be ill and immoral When I see people holding up signs marching or giving speeches on how we have to abandoned the death penalty I get sick to my stomach Any person that was willing to take a innocent persons life away should be willing to live up to the punishment If we do without the death penalty that will not give any seriousness to the act of murder I fully agree with capital punishmentFor the utilitarian punishment is only regarded to as if there is happiness created and unhappiness not created From the utilitarian point of view capital punishment is good if it prevents or deters the criminal from repeating the crime and also deters others in acting out a crime in the future One problem utilitarian thoughts have are first of all utilitarian try to reduce the amount of unhappiness as much as they can in doing that they are also reducing the amount of punishment given for the act of murder So by this fact it is wrong to reduce the amount of punishment just to create happiness A murder deserves every ounce of punishment that comes along with the price of killingThe retributive thoughts of capital punishment first of all is that all criminals earn punishment and also adding to this is that the punishment should be equal in treatment to the crime Retributive also complies with an eye for an eye just like the amount of punishment is based on the degree of the crime The problem with retributive thinking is that if you kill two people the punishment you deserve far more then just the killing of you
