When it comes to the death penalty it is a very tough and fine line to touch upon. Most of the time the decision is 50/50. Either you feel that particular person deserves to be punished for the heinous crime or crimes they committed or that they should just get life. Though, as a society who are we to put people to death on regards to either prominent or fictitious evidence? Do we always catch the bad guys in the end and have happily ever afters? Well sorry to say, but nine times out of ten most people that we actually think deserve the death penalty really should be tried better. Our court systems are too flawed to come up with any means of justifying putting someone else to death. To me it is like saying that I am above you and I am a better human being than you are so therefore, I have the right to take your life away.
As a society that is the image that is being portrayed and most of the time, NOW, verdicts of the death penalty are seen as a game rather than an actual ruling that affects someone’s life. It has become some type of reality show for people to watch on new broadcastings and shown almost as inhumanely as possible. No one realizes that once you sentence someone to death and it is carried out, there is no going back. There are no do overs or whoops! All there there is in this world is life and death and I feel neither should be decided or at the hands of other people no more moral or just than me. To use the death penalty is to enforce power over an individual that can not be revoked. No one should fea having to worry about being killed not by murders and not even by out judicial court systems.
