The death penalty is a sensitive topic that people have argued about for many years. Nowadays, with the development of science and laws, the death penalty is more and more becoming a type of punishment that should be accepted in the 21st century United States.
Some people insist that the death penalty is “barbaric”. Opponents believe that dying on the gallows, electric chairs or gas chamber is inhumane.

Maybe the murders will kill more people because they do not need to pay anything for the crime? What’s worse, if the punishment is not heavy enough, I am worried that more and more people would think that there is no consequence for taking others’ lives based on the cases that sentenced before. Despising the death penalty is despising human lives.

Mistakes happen but they can be forgiven. Right now the rate of mistake is low enough so that these mistakes are not a concern . According to a study in Forbes magazine, it states that around 4% of prisoners on death row are innocent. I consider this is a possibility of e...
