It is irrevocable. It ends the existence of those punished, instead of temporarily imprisoning them. Although capital punishment is not intended to inflict physical pain, execution is the only corporal punishment still applied to adults. The usual alternative to the death penalty is life-long imprisonment. C

The concept of isolation, of man being totally alone with nowhere to run, permeates Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel, Crime and Punishment. Throughout the novel, Raskolnikov passes through different stages of isolation. He possesses different degrees of alienation because of different reasons which are all related to his theory about ordinary and extraordinary men. When he is planning the murder, his isolation is apparent but it reaches its height after he commits the murder of the pawnbroker and falls

The Death Penalty The death penalty is an effective method of punishing criminals who have committed murder. The death penalty should be used more often so that people will get the hint that they should not kill anyone for any reason, or else they are going to die as well. If used correctly it could be more cost efficient to just give him or her the chair, than it would to keep them in jail for their whole lives. I feel that a criminal should be killed the way he killed the victim. Others will
