Capital Punishment: the Answer to Modern Society? BY raffia1999 Capital Punishment: The answer to Modern Society? An argument into why criminals need to be punished in severity to their crimes. Capital Punishment. Judicial Execution. The Death Penalty.
All different ways to say “True Justice. ” The Modern Justification system is simply not working and there needs to be change! Change is the only way that society can be hauled from this prison of crime that it had purged itself in to, by denying this, are you saying that what is happening on the streets and behind closed doors today is right?Are you saying that people being killed, Just because of the color of their skin, is right? Are you saying that you could live every day, knowing that there is someone out there, willing to harm any innocent bystander, your children, your family, your friends, that there is someone out there, being harmed, because a threat is still out there? The fact remains that criminals are simply not being punished in severity to their crimes! They’re not afraid of the consequences, so they have nothing to stop them from committing any unlawful acts.All, and only, guilty people need to be punished ufficiently because real Justice requires people to suffer for and understand their wrongdoing. Criminals need to understand the suffering, agony and pain- both mental and physical- that they inflicted upon their victims. That those innocent people endured because of them. However, you could argue that retribution to crimes other than murder do not mimic the action that was inflicted, and that is correct, so the sufficient punishment for each crime should be the same crime that they committed, but inflicted upon the criminal to a possible extent.For example, rapists should have their genitals removed, and the words “guilty of rape” tattooed cross their foreheads in red ink and all those guilty of neglect should be placed in an empty room and left to their thoughts without food, water, or sanitary requirements, till the point where they are about to decease (if the victim lived), or they will pass away in the room if their victim had died because of the neglect that was inflicted upon them.
Execution methods would need to be mildly public (so that people of appropriate age know how they may view them taking place and where, but not so open that young children may accidentally stumble upon them) and humiliating, so that criminals would not want to commit crimes because if they ontinued to live with such humiliation, they would be degraded in the eyes of those that idolized them.To make an analogy: If you where a serial killer that simply loved to kill (for whatever pleasures or adrenaline rushes you enjoyed), but where aware that if found, you would be killed by a lethal injection, no guaranteed pain, would you be particularly scared of the consequences to your actions?Consider that you where either physically abused as a child, suffered malnutrition or alcoholism, and so you had severe damage to the frontal lobe, the hypothalamus and the limbic system, hich can contribute to extreme aggression, loss of control, loss of Judgment and violence- in short, brain damage (or biological abnormalities), so you have little concern for your life, but still feel pain.Henry Lee Lucas, who was convicted of 1 1 murders, was shown to have extreme brain damage in these areas, Arthur Shawcross, another man who had killed 11 people, was found to have two skull fractures and several brain injuries, thus contributing to the theory that almost all serial killers may suffer from brain damage, mental issues, troubled childhoods, or are simply psychotic.It is unlikely that you would fear the injection, so instead, consider that your execution would be much more painful, such as hanging or electrocution, and you would be much more regretful of what you had done: witnesses, or those that could have been influenced by the crimes you committed, would also think again before following your example, as they would have seen the ending that your actions bought to you.The punishing of criminals should also be un-hidden so that people can learn from the mistakes of those guilty of crimes and witness the horrors of what became of them for committing such deeds, so that the arge-scale amount of people know what would become of them for doing something so hideous, and so that any corrupt minds will think before they mimic the actions of a criminal.Despite the fact that young children will not be allowed to witness the executions outside of the school environment (school appropriate videos may be made to explain in further detail), they should be taught about the Capital Punishment system in schools so that they too, understand the consequences of their actions.Many people would scream out that these are immoral, unethical and inhumane forms of torture that no human should have to endure, that only a onster would think of and use; but you need to understand that the people that would actually commit such crimes are the true monsters- and sometimes, to defeat the greater monster, you need to become a monster, because, as Aristotle pointed out, “an evil man is worse than a beast and more harmful.
” By exterminating one guilty person, you have permanently removed the threat of so many more innocent people suffering.For instance, within 3 years, 2. 5% of released rapists were arrested for another rape, and 1. 2% of those who had served time for homicide were re- arrested for homicide. By permanently removing these threats, we will have created not only and ideal society for those of a humane mind, or an ideal country: but if we pass these laws globally, we will have created and ideal world, turning the fantasy ideals of what every Justice seeking mind has sought into reality.We will have ended the trauma of parents who had lost children to child trafficking and kidnapping, we will have ended the suffering of people being abused within their own homes. We think that not being ruled through a dictatorship means that we are not oppressed- that is wrong. Capital punishment can free society from the oppression of fear of rime that so many people live under.
By letting a person guilty of rape, murder, abuse, neglect, assault or fraud go to prison, and possibly be rehabilitated, you are surrounding the criminal by people that have committed crimes that are possibly worse than the crime the offender themselves had committed, and so you have filled a building with corrupt people that will influence one another and so, when the time for the offender to return to society comes, they may well be much worse than they had began as they have had so much free time to talk to other offenders and to plan how they would have improved upon what they had done (e. ; “Dave told me that he wore gloves so he was never found by his fingerprints, so I should also wear gloves next time so that I do not leave any of my fingerprints”). Furthermore, sending offenders to prison is simply purposeless as prisons are not strict enough, inmates themselves have admitted that prison is much like a holiday camp, as they are equipped with satellite television, free gym use, free bed and board, video and board games and free workshops and training courses (this applies to most I-JK prisons).
The amount of money that is spent towards the luxuries of many prisons, are in fact ore than the low income worker can afford. Surly, is all of the money that goes towards free gyms and video games at a prison instead went towards something progressful and aiding to society such as self defense classes for middle aged women and teenagers, the crime rate would drop as women would be able to defend themselves more effectively from sexual predators and assault, and if prisoners came to know a Jail with only an empty one person cell, the crime rate would drop as people would also fear going to prison.Lesser crimes such as mild fraud, theft, vandalism and lesser identity theft should continue to be solved through the current ystem, so long as they are all placed into solitary confined cells into a harsher prison environment, where they are to educe hard labor and be rehabilitated, or put to work in mining sites, such as Pyramiden in Norway- a soviet coal mine that closed down as it became too expensive to run- so that they can fund their own living expenses; so less is taken from the tax payer.
It may sound as if I am proposing that we should hang or mortally shame every single criminal but that was not exactly what I was suggesting. I was implying that we capitally punish every serial killer, murderer, abuser (if victim died), neglector (if ictim died), rapist of anyone under the age of 16 and family members, use of illegal weapons to inflict damage upon another person, pedophiles and child traffickers.But that we should punish each individual crime to the severity of the criminals actions.
This may still, as of present, seem a malicious and implacable argument to put forwards, but for once, consider this in the eyes of the victim- and those closest to them. Put yourself into the shoes of an elderly man who has seen his wife, the last of his loved ones, in a morgue to be identified; because she was the victim of a barbaric and cold blooded killing. Now he is completely alone.Imagine the sadness he feels. the remorse and regret that he had not been there to help her, the guilt of knowing that he could not save her- that it had not been him that had died. That it was his fault for not leaving the safety of the walls of their home instead of her.
The anger at society and life for its cruelty, for only locking the creature that had done this to her, away, whilst his whole life had been torn from him and thrown into a hollow box, 6 feet under the ground.Apply yourself into the shoes of a teenager who had been raped by 5 different men in the same night without reason. Her cries and screams for help, for somebody to save her from the darkness of an ally way, where her screams only echoed back to her through the silence. Miraculously, she survives. However, she later, not only has to suffer the humiliation and agonizing memories of what had happened to her, but also the hateful, disapproving stares and comments of her peers and total strangers that are directed towards her taut bump of a stomach- she is pregnant.Her family have remained supportive, initially, she wanted to abort the child, but morals and money meant that the family could not offer her the option of bortion, so she would simply have to give birth to a reminder of what had happened, not only would she forever know that there was evidence, but the child’s life too would forever be shattered if it where to find out that’s its father had done something so hideous to its mother.
.. a hideous action by which it was created. The teenager went into labor, but because her body was not yet fully developed and ready for childbirth, she died.Now, imagine yourself into the place of the mother of the teenage girl who was brutally gang raped. She was only on her way back from school..
. t was a Journey that she seldom, but occasionally made when you could not pick her up because the office in which you worked, had you working overtime. You could see the withdrawal she had made from you all, you could see that she was suffering, you could see the continuous lines of scars- healing and fresh- that ran up her arms, and the unshed tears that lay in her eyes.You could tell that she was never going to be the same again: so you decided that therapy may help her talk about her problems more, to open up and recollect herself from the shocked state that she was trapped in.
You didn’t want her to continually replay the scene to herself, to remember that you had not been there for her when she needed you most, that you had not been there to collect her from school, and where instead filing papers rather than becoming her savior.That you had lost someone that trusted you, that you had abandoned her trust, and so, that it was your fault that she died. How would you feel to know that after your daughter endured and suffered through so much, after the painstakingly, agonizing time she had been through- been through because of you- those that had done this to her where only in buildings with other people that had njustifiably wronged others. That they where sitting in cells, watching television, having recreational activity time and being educated, only so that they could be rehabilitated and return to their lives.That one day, the people that had done something so egregious would be walking free and laughing as if nothing had happened, that they where laughing with other criminals as your family mourned over what you had lost. The sentence for those guilty of manslaughter, second, third and fourth degree murder, or the act of inducing the suicide or murder of another being, should be none the less of that of first degree murderer, as the outcome is xactly the same.
You could argue against the retribution to crimes through capital punishment by saying that capital punishment is a violation of the human right to live.This is very similar to the value of life argument, but is instead approached from the perspective of human rights. One does initially have the human right to live, but one can also forfeit that right to live through the commencement of (a) dubious act(s) towards another person. the murder has violated the human right to live of his/her victim(s) by taking the victim(s) life and so the guilty parties right to live has been relinquished because of his/her actions.Another reason to support the death penalty would be the large scale public approval rate, 64% of the USA approve of Capital Punishment in the event of murder, 69% of these people where white and 55% are not. The website Kids Against the Death Penalty [http://www.
freewebs. com/kadp/] , an internet group of children against the death penalty, had an open guest book, in which a user, who clearly had a strong view, wrote: ” Dear Kids Against the Death Penalty, I know that you will delete this post, as it does not fit into your propaganda.I would assume that none of you had ever experienced an event of a close family member eing killed.
Correct me if I am wrong. Have you ever seen the face ofa 12-year-old child coming into the room and saying that he knows that dad is not coming back… because he knows he is dead, have you ever seen the wife of that person I am asking if you know how she felt? Have you ever read a letter where it was said, “We have killed your husband and will kill your son if you don’t give us money? ” Have you?I bet you have not seen the smiling faces of those people in the court room, saying that it was the victim’s fault that he was shot 16 times +1 in the head. One gets out in 15 years at age of 60 and another in 13 at age of 45. Did they kill once? -Yes.
Did they try to kill another person? -Yes! 3 times… lucky guy is deaf and with a bullet in his back now. Did they threaten to kill a child? – Yes. Let me educate you on who those people are. There is no death penalty in Russia and all those people are there for life and they all pray to God to forgive their sins. One of them for raping a seven-year-old boy, but that was not enough .
he pulled his guts two meters long from his anus, while the boy was still alive, another one killed 45 people by smashing their heads with the hammer, including pregnant women, children and elderly. They are uncontrollable sadists who become God worshippers if caught, but when asked “would you ever stop, if nobody would catch you? ” They say on the camera “No…
never. ” The guy who killed 45 people, was proud of himself, that he did it. Another story is from London, where two Romanian brothers found out that if they commit a crime they go to prison and get free food, education and shelter.One of them decided to rape a girl and sat next to her waiting for police to come. Enjoy your life, educate kids that the death penalty is bad and I wish you all to one day understand the pain of your kids being aped and mutilated, your husbands killed, and you sitting in the court room watching the people who did smile, enjoy themselves by constantly appealing that they are ill/sick/don’t feel well, that they killed but did not intend to, that this is the victim’s fault and that the police forged evidence.I want you to meet them in 15-20 years walking the streets of your town, enjoying their lives and saying hello and how are you to you.
I want to see your face when this happens. P. S.
there was a girl in Sweden, she advocated for immigrant rights … the ironic thing is that one evening an mmigrant raped her and stoned her to death, hid her body and went back home.
Now he is in a nice Swedish prison with a Sony PlayStation and internet.By the way Andres Bravik soon will be with intent access too, I think he will become a member of your page as well ( if you don’t know him- he killed 77 people and blew up a car in the center of Oslo, Norway)” This is not an argument of money, but morals, however, you may argue that the cost of imprisoning a criminal for life is four times less than it would cost to capitally execute them, but appraise that this is four times more uaranteed safety for all the innocent, four times more of an example set to people that are considering that they should offend, and four times more proof that this nation has finally decided to take a firm grasp upon Justice and not rest until every wrong has been made right. After the initial beginning of this crime purging scheme, it may begin costly, but the effects in the long run will be much more fruitful: criminals will finally begin to pay more attention to the law and are much less likely to disobey if they know the consequences will be harsh and humiliating so there will ot only be less crime, but tax payers will have less money being put towards the containment of prisoners as there will be less of them to rehabilitate.And eventually, the criminals who are working in abandoned cities will have made enough money to continue funding society, and so the money will be returning to fund for other criminal executions. Many people opposing the death penalty have argued that teaching not to kill by killing is hypocritical and is Just as bad as the criminals themselves, possibly even worse and more malicious by doing it in the name of justice. They argue that criminals learn nothing in death, that they would learn from their mistakes by being alive. But have you considered that by committing this crime, they have already expressed their disrespect towards the law and are not going to want to learn to abide it?Furthermore, whether the criminals learn or not, the public and the witnesses are going to learn.
They are going to learn a lot; such as never to make the same mistakes as that criminal did. They are going to learn that laws are not trivial and that they are not to be broken, about how laws are the base, structure, ackbone and support of society, and that there would be havoc without them. If one person can not obey the law, many people will pursue their example and society will be destroyed. Laws are the foundation, and by destroying the foundation, you have destroyed the whole picture.
By killing these abominations that have taken the innocent lives of others, we are not killing for our own sake, but for the sake of so many others.We are avenging those who could not avenge themselves and are bringing peace of mind to other people that fear that these criminals that will walk ree one day through rehabilitation. Why are so many people, so naive, as to still be blinded by the illusion of peace that has been created by those that have lost hope to crime being purged, or those believing that capital punishment is wrong? All people strive to have their ideals become their reality, so why not this one? Why can we not finally punish people sufficiently to their crimes- why can we not serve Justice in the amounts that it is required? Capital punishment is the answer to crime: do you want to purge society free of the crime that destroys it?
