Pro Death Penalty
There are plenty of people out there that are all for the death penalty. They believe in an eye for an eye and they want to see it carried out. They often become frustrated with the length of time it takes for it to happen though. A person can spend years on death row before they are executed. The number of executions taking place continues to drop each year even though the number of people on death row continues to increase.
One complaint that many who are for the death penalty have is that the nature in which it is carried out is too humane. When you think about the number of lives they took, the violent nature of their acts, and all the innocent people who have had their lives forever changed by it, lethal injection is too kind of an action for them.
Many individuals become pro death penalty after they or someone they know have been affected personally by such actions. In many instances it can bring closure. For those that have lost a loved one, they just don’t see that it is fair for the person who took that life to continue living. It isn’t enough that they are in prison because they are still able to live their life.
Many people also believe that the death penalty, if properly imposed will result in fewer people engaging in such behaviors. It can set a good example for people as to how to live their own lives. Yet many people that do engage in such behaviors don’t think of the consequences of their actions. They don’t believe they will ever get caught either and that is why you have serial rapists and murders out there.
Being pro death penalty doesn’t mean you have to enjoy the thought of death. It does mean that you believe in justice being carried out. Too many people go to prison, get out, and repeat their criminal ways. Stricter laws and more implementation of the death penalty can help to prevent that cycle. The amount of money that would be saved is in the millions annually as well. Why should so much money be paid out to support those that have committed crimes?
