Ending the Death Penalty by Dale. S  Recinella

Is the death penalty necessary? After 1976, when the death penalty was reinstated, innocent people were wrongly convicted (Recinella, 2008, p.12). According to many churches, if there is no other way to protect innocent law-abiding citizens the death penalty shall be used (Recinella, 2008, p. 13).

I believe that the death penalty is ineffective.  

Death Penalty: Justice or Just Wrong?

     The death penalty is a form of punishment that has caused immense, worldwide controversy. Do capital crimes require the death sentence? Moral values, religious views, and political ideals have caused a split of opinions regarding this question. Supporters of the death penalty believe that murderers deserve to die for their crimes, as well as for inflicting pain on the victims’ families. Is revenge the answer? If our society bases its laws on revenge, then we are more likely to live in a world of hate and destruction.

The Roman Catholic Church has experienced a difference of opinions regarding the death penalty over the last thirty years (Miller 2012). Polls reveal that since the mid-1990s, one third of Americans are now against the death penalty (Miller 2012). Roman Catholic politicians have now begun to openly show their opposition to capital punishment in their campaigns. As a result, an increased number of states, such as Connecticut, have enacted bills that outlaw the death penalty.
