Transcript

  • 1. CAPITAL PUNISHMENTPresented by: Fahad Bokhari 09-
  • 2. The Death Penalty • When someone is on Death-row, they are held in cells until it is their time to be executed for committing horrible crimes.
  • 3. History of the Punishment • First recorded death penalty: Code of Hammurabi. • Brought to U.S. by Britain when colonized. • Penalty under constant scrutiny.
  • 4. History Cont…• 1972 death penalty suspended: statutes considered “cruel and unusual”• States rewrote statutes to eliminate the problem
  • 5. FORMS OF CAPITAL PUNISHMENTMany different types of execution including• BEHEADING• LETHEL INJECTION• POISON• ELECTRIFICATION• GUILLOTINE• SHOOTING(DEATH BY FIRING SQUAD)• DEATH BY STONING• HANGING
  • 6. Compassion?…No• Many people believe it is unethical to execute someone and that it’s an injustice. I disagree, the death penalty is a crime deterrent, gives families retribution for loved ones, and helps prevent recidivism. It would be an injustice to abolish the penalty.
  • 7. The theories of punishment ; why does the State punish criminals? 1. Vengeance 2. Retribution 3. Deterrence 4. Incapacitation
  • 8. VENGEANCE• Human emotion that is normal in family members of murder victims, but it can never be used to justify a public policy given that policies are supposed to be based on reason and empirical science. 
  • 9. Retribution • If someone in your family were murdered, would you want that person to be punished? • I would.
  • 10. Deterrent • If people don’t have anything to fear they will do as they please. Capital punishment makes people think twice.
  • 11. Incapacitation• Taking away a persons freedom so that he or she cannot commit another crime. • The ultimate form of incarceration is death. 
  • 12. Recidivism• When a dog gets into the hen house it has to be put down because it will continue to do it.• Could the same not apply to humans?
  • 13. Examples of Capital PunishmentAssassination of political personalities• President of Iraq Saddam Hussain• Prime Minister of Pakistan Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto• Socrates
  • 14. Conclusion• The death penalty has been a very controversial issue through thedecades.Capital punishment is the only effective way todeter crime.• The Federal government has regulated theuse of the death penalty in the past.Now it is up to the individual state whether theywant to use it. In the future, it should bemandatory throughout the entire country.• What, if anything, would it take to changeyour mind on the death penalty?
  • 15. SolutionThe best solution to stopping the injustice ofputting an end to capital punishment is to goout and vote for the legislatures that keep itrunning.
