DEATH PENALTY LIFE IMPRISONMENT
DEATH PENALTY ABOLISHED FOR ALL CRIMES
ABOLISHED FOR CRIMES NOT COMMITTED (circumstantial)
ABOLISHED IN PRACTICE
FOR CERTAIN OFFENSES Violation of Article 2
Infringement of Article 3
Cruelty and brutality
Perception of Vengeance Innocent will be dead.
Rather to have 10 convict to walk free than to have convicted an innocent person.
It is actually very difficult for the judge to convict a person and giving a sentence of a death penalty.
Death penalty is irreversible, as we could not bring the person back alive.
“I AM NOT HERE BECAUSE THE SYSTEM WORKED. I am here because a series of miracles led to my exoneration. Not every person wrongfully convicted of a capital crime is as blessed. If a country cannot ensure that they will not kill an innocent citizen, they should not kill at all.”
Mr. Kirk Bloodsworth Criminologists, such as William Bowers of North Eastern University, maintain that the death penalty has the opposite effect: that is, society is brutalized by the use of the death penalty.
Former Texas Attorney General Jim Mattox has remarked, "It is my own experience that those executed in Texas were not deterred by the existence of the death penalty law. I think in most cases you'll find that the murder was committed under severe drug and alcohol abuse." CRUELTY Chaney v. Heckler, 718 F.2d 1174 :
a slight wrong dosage or administration could leave a prisoner conscious but paralyzed while dying Franklin Dunkins Jr, Alabama: shocked twice on the electric chair as first jolt failed to kill him.
- post office clerk stated "he deserve every bit of it" WRONGFUL CONVICTIONS Psychological torture: death row phenomenon Human life - sacred
Government - engaging in death penalty
Playing god BREACH OF ARTICLE 2 VIOLATION OF ARTICLE 2 McCann & Others v United Kingdom (1995)
- para 2 does not define instances where it is permitted intentionally to kill an individual but it is the situation where it is "permitted to use force", which may result in the deprivation of life. INFRINGEMENT OF ARTICLE 3 - Prohibition of torture Soering v UK (1989): landmark case in matters of breaching of article 3 of degrading treatment being kept in detention for an unknown period, awaiting execution. This is approved by the ECHR
Pratt v Morgan Redux (1993) – sentence in 1993 however his execution is after 14 years.
Catholic Commission v Attorney General (1993): not only prolonged delays, they come with harsh conditions of cruelty and unusual treatments due to the crimes they committed CRUELTY With education, application of this flawed system as a way of protecting society reflects our society’s value
Usage of science and technology - DNA
sentencing innocent man - family?
turning back after conviction.....
no longer hold dear civil rights, embrace death penalty so long as it makes us feel safe which is wrong http://www.innocenceproject.org/Content/The_Innocent_and_the_Death_Penalty.php DNA PROVEN INNOCENCE CASES ON DEATH PENALTIES VENGEANCE Taking a life for a live – revenge
the need of justice towards the families of the victims does not compel us to support the use of death penalty
No act of execution can bring back a live one or heal terrible wounds as the pain and loss suffered of one death cannot be wipe away by another
For the state to kill reflectively as of emotion on a ceremony its wrong
Children will be raised in a revengeful mindset
There can be alternative It is cheaper to imprison killers for life than to execute them.
Donald McCartin, a former California jurist known as "The Hanging Judge of Orange County" : It's 10 times more expensive to kill them than to keep them alive," though most Americans believe the opposite.
Waste of time and money.
Legal costs due to appeal processes were too great and produced no result. LIFE IMPRISONMENT OVER DEATH PENALTY Expensive process FAILED TO ACT AS A DETERRENT WHY ABOLISH DEATH PENALTY VIDEO TIME Persons who commit murder and other crimes of personal violence either may or may not premeditate their crimes.
Ordinarily concentrates on escaping detection, arrest, and conviction.
Capital crimes are committed in the heat of the moment. CONCLUSION Effects Of Life Sentence Existence of a stringent life sentence can either partially or completely eliminate the imagined need for the death penalty.
Sentences with significant minimum terms can also provide the public with the protection from repeat offenders that they want.
Louisiana's district attorney, Harry Connick, Sr, said: "When a guy gets to be 60, he's not gonna rip and run a lot. Not like he used to."
A number of wardens report that those serving life sentences are the best-behaved prisoners in their entire system.
According to Leo Lalonde of the Michigan Department of Corrections, those serving life without parole sentences: "After a few years, lifers become your better prisoners. They tend to adjust and just do their time. The death penalty is the ultimate denial of human rights.
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. IMPACTS OF DEATH PENALTY
