Transcript of Death Penalty

Why Does it Matter
What Does This Mean
This means that even if the U,S has the death penalty it is not helping that much.
this means that the goverment is loosing time and money deciding on wether we should keep the death penalty or not
this means that the U.S might stop continuing with the death penalty.
Introduction
We are going to talk about the causes and effects about the death penalty. And we will discuss if the death penalty is immoral.
We are also going to tell you about our own opinion on the death penalty
Death Penalty History

In 2009 the court ruled that the death penalty must be imposed through a finding of a jury and not a judge.
There was once different ways to kill somebody by the death penalty.
they decided that some of the ways were too cruel like the electric chair or hanging them because they wanted to kill them quickly.
the death penalty has been around since the year 1608
The death penalty is a sentencing option for over sixty offenses
People who have had bad backgrounds are most likely to commit many crimes.
Conclusion
We believe that the death penalty is important because we should take action on someone who has taken many lives. We also believe that there are other reasons in why the U.S has so much crimes compared to other countries, with that being said we think the death penalty should still exist because we should try to save as many innocent lives.
