2. Ted Bundy (1989)-Bundy, who ultimately confessed to
murdering 23 women, was put to death in Florida's electric
chair on Jan. 24, 1989. Prosecutors and investigators said he
could have been responsible for as many as 100 murders. All
of his known or suspected victims were girls or women.
Arguments commonly made for supporting the
death penalty are: -- To serve as example to other
would-be criminals, to deter them from
committing murder or terrorist acts.
-- To punish the criminal for his/her act.
-- To obtain retribution on behalf of the victims.
Arguments commonly made to abolish the death penalty are: --
Death constitutes quot;cruel and unusual punishment,quot; which is
prohibited by the 8th amendment to the US Constitution. Also,
the various means used by the state to kill a criminal are cruel.
-- The death penalty is used strangely against the poor, who
cannot afford expensive legal counsel, as well as racial, ethnic
and religious minorities.
-- The death penalty is applied randomly and inconsistently.
-- Wrongly convicted, innocent people have received death
penalty sentences, and tragically, were killed by the state.
-- A reformed criminal can make a with honesty valuable
payment to society.
-- Killing human life is morally wrong under all circumstances.
Some faith groups, such as the Roman Catholic Church, oppose
the death penalty as not being quot;pro-life.quot;
Death penalty can bring in both odds and even
ends..My beliefs stands as having Death Penalty
still in present and future, but for a well known
purpose. Its says in many of my research that
many served death being innocent, and that was
ad odd. It shall only be put to use for other ones
at fault for murder or along those lines.
If we keep Death Penalty…Who is to serve?
If we keep Death penalty..For what will they
If we kept Death Penalty…Will we kill the
If we have Death Penalty…. What will hold for the
But if we keep Death Penalty….We have to pay
for it to stay..
We have to make improved choices…
We have to have probable cause…
Will it solve our troubles…..?
'Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed,
nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.‘
I think the 8th change of the U.S. Constitution forbids
punishments that are mean and unusual. The 8th Amendment
is pretty much enforced in death penalty cases, but it also
addresses too much fines. It applies to both federal and state
governments, but most states actually have stricter cruel and
unusual punishment laws.
Its should be evaluated in the top three amendments. As it
shares the punishments of what you will receive if you don’t
avid by the laws that are set you will always be punished in
strict ways. Maybe not even giving a second chance.
