The Death Penalty
In the past, people have invariably felt that if they had been wronged in some way, it was his or her right to take vengeance on the person that had wronged them. This mentality still exists, even today, but in a lesser form because the law has now outlined a person's rights and developed punishments that conform to those rights, yet allow for the retribution for their crime. However, some feel that those laws and punishments are too lax and criminals of today take advantage of them, ie. organ...

Capital punishment is the legal infliction of the death penalty on a person convicted of a crime. Today, in modern law, the death penalty is corporal punishment in its most severe form. Capital punishment is irreversible, it ends the existence of those punished, instead of temporarily imprisoning them. Even though capital punishment is not intended to inflict physical pain, execution is the only capital punishment that is only applied to adults. The usual alternative to the death pena...

capital punishment should be restored
Justice must be done. Capital punishment is the just punishment for serious crime offenders and must be imposed. First, the basis of a punishment must be just and fair to both the victims and the offenders, and definitely capital punishment serves this purpose by the "a life for a life" principle. Also, it is an effective crime deterent which , by simply incapacitation of the criminal, the chances of committing crimes of that criminal is eliminated. Potential serial killers could not have been...

Punishment And Behavior
Punishment and Behavior The amount of crime in America has been constantly increasing over the years. At the same time, in order to deter this crime punishment enforced by the government has also increased. This is what compels me to argue against the notion that if a society wishes to change its citizens' behavior, a system based on punishments will be much more effective than a reward based system. First of all, there seems to be a very strong relationship between punishment and violence. The...

Handgun
Handgun Because the prison population has doubled since 1984, it is really urgent for people to pay attention to the method of decreasing the crime rate. Basically, it is true that "locking people up is obviously not the answer to the crime problem. Training and educating people is one answer." (Los Angeles Time, Joseph Mayfield) But training and educating people to lower the crime rate may only work under some conditions. For instance, this can only apply to the criminal who committed a cri...

Holocaust
The Nation of Germany should be assessed damages and reparations made to survivors and or their heirs for the Nazi crimes which included, property theft, wrongful injury and wrongful death. The monetary compensation will never heal the wounds inflicted by the depraved actions of the Nazi on their fellow man. The mere claim that not all Germans participated willingly should not be a viable defense for their liability. Does the concept that the nation should pay for the pain and suffering a few ca...

The Death Penalty 3
In view of the ever-increasing violent crimes, most people think that the re-enforcement of the death penalty is a good way to reduce the crime rate. However, there are not many statistics that prove this. For this reason, I believe that the death penalty should not be restored. In my essay I will concentrate on three main arguments for my point of view. First of all, no one has the right to terminate the life of another person; secondly, the death penalty is final and irreversible; and thirdly,...
