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 serial killers
if they were executed after the first murder. Furthermore, it has a threatening effect to
the public, making use of human\'s basic fear of death, implying that the society would
deal with capital offences with a just hand , by taking away the lives of the criminals
who knowingly forfeits others\' right to life.
Capital punishment is a necessary element in a society. Countries like the USA, UK, China,
Canada, Japan and so on, has been practising death penalty for years and the results
are conspicious. Therefore, capital punishment should be imposed in every country in the
world.
