A Speech on “Should the Death Penalty Be Abolished?”

Every single day, many people are sentenced to death or executed in the nations as punishment for various crimes, sometimes even for acts that are not criminalized. In many countries, it can be for act of terrorism or murder or even drug related crimes. Around 106 countries have abolished the death penalties by the end of 2019. In my opinion, a death penalty could be an easy escape way for certain criminals. They would accept it as a prize given to them.

There are various forms of death penalties like death by hanging, gas chamber, lethal injection, stoning to death and few more. Most of the time these death penalties are never given properly to the right crimes. So here are few points why death penalties should be abolished;

  • We can’t take back one’s executed, who knows an innocent might get wrongfully executed. These penalties are irreversible. A judgment made out in a sudden might affect the life of an innocent. For many cases, some officials find it easier to charge an innocent for closing the case and these people might end up being executed for nothing. 
  • The cost of death penalties are very high. Most of the taxpayers believe that the cost of imprisonment is more expensive. Truth is the case for a murder trial takes up more time and cost when it has to be a decision that leads to a death penalty. The cost for the court people such as the judge, public prosecutors, public defence and court reporters are mostly taken by the taxpayers money in a nation. In many cases, the defendants are not able to afford their own attorneys; then ones appointed might be underpaid, less experienced or overworked for such death cases.
  • Emotional conditions of the family members of a victim of the death penalty. A lot of families and loved ones of the murder victims of a death penalty, request and support for different alternatives to such penalties, because this could be a traumatizing experience for these families that takes a lot of time to relieve from the pain and suffering of the death of their loved one. A life without being able to see them at least on parole could be like a non-healing wound. 
  • Alternatives can be helpful for those victims of a death penalty. Death penalties can be avoided, specially it’s avoided for juniors; but this judgement is sentenced without any parole for lifetime. This gives them immense opportunity to think and change themself and this is a cheaper sentence for tax-payers which will also keep away the violent offenders off the streets.
  • Death penalties won’t deter the crime rates around us. After conducting various surveys, it’s proven that carrying out more death penalties won’t reduce the crime rate in a nation. Criminals believe this as a simple act of escapism rewarded to their criminal activities. In some nations, murder rates have increased more due to these penalties.

Death penalties will be carried out, but let’s make sure it’s for the right case.

A Speech on “The Death Penalty Should Be Outlawed”:

We all are familiar and heard about the penalty or punishment, but very few people are known about the death penalty or capital punishment, which is very cruel. As we all know, in the past society ,the death penalty or capital punishment it was very much common to people . But as many days passed, this violence becomes less than before. Death penalty is ordered by the high court or Supreme Court against the criminal activities. The death penalty has various types of methods in different countries. Some countries hung the culprits, some countries shoot them in open and some countries inject fatal chemicals into their bodies.

There are many types of death penalty in our world. All the death penalty is divided into two parts. One of them is traditional death penalty or capital punishment and the others are traditional death penalties or capital punishments. Modern methods are less painful than the old version of death penalty. Modern methods are very much quicker processes than the old traditional methods of death penalty. 

These are some death penalty processes which are followed in past days and in modern days also—

A] Electrify the culprits,

B] Tranquilization,

C] Beheading

D] Shooting = in this method they shoots the criminals.

E] Hanging = in this method, they just hang the prisoners.

            As per May 2012,141 countries have abolished the death penalty either in law or practice. In my opinion, I am not supporting the death penalty. I think that it is very inhuman processes, which followed throughout the world. I strongly believe that death penalty is very cruel .We have no rights to give someone the death penalty as extreme punishments.

             Supporters of death penalty thought that this type of cruel activity should be happen with the criminals, because of their crime. But they didn’t think about that how much cruelty is shown to the society, what message is going to the society.

             There are many advantages and many disadvantages of these capital punishments. The advantages of capital punishment are that they give people an idea of what the law is capable of doing. It proves that criminals never escaped from their crime. Anyone, who think about to do any types of crime, they will think twice before they doing that .And the also thing is that. No criminal cannot harm anybody in this outside world. These are the advantages of death penalty. 

          Now the disadvantages of death penalty are we do not give another chance to the change. We are doing very much bad with them without understanding what the life is actually , and how the crime has spoiled it .The people in this society thought that human lives have no values. They should respect the other’s life. We must show some of kindness to them. It is good for them and also good information message for this society. We have to destroy the sins not the sinners.
