Every action we take is done because we expect it to have some kind of benefit, correct? Since if there is no benefit, it would be a waste of time. I’m sure most would agree with that statement. So obviously any action we take against any criminal is supposed to have a positive influence on our society. Yet the death penalty itself does not have any beneficial qualities in itself. What good is a dead man to society? Some claim it helps the victim’s family get over the death of their loved one. Killing someone won’t bring back there loved one so that statement has no real basis to it. There is no way it could ease their pain. And what about the family of the criminal? Why make them suffer also?
If I remember correctly, the branch of the government that handles criminals and prisons is called “Correction and Rehabilitation.” Not “Punishment and Revenge.” My point being any actions we execute regarding criminals need not be punishment or payback but instead of a nature that will influence positive change in that…
