The paper relates that capital punishment, or the death penalty, has grown to be a controversial issue. This paper discusses both sides of the issue and concludes that in order for the judicial system to be effective and the death penalty to be a deterrent, we have to be very careful during the entire process. The paper argues that the death penalty should not be awarded freely, but should be awarded to habitual murderers who have preplanned their crimes.

From the Paper:

"Awarding death penalty is practiced in thirty-eight of the fifty states. These states allow the death penalty in law. Moreover the death penalty is also allowed under U.S. federal military and civilian law. However among these thirty-eight states, the ones with the most executions are Texas (143), Virginia (44), Florida (39), Missouri (29), and Louisiana (24) (
"Death penalty is usually awarded in case of homicide. However treason is another offense which also calls for the same treatment of the accused. Much as death penalty is harsh, there are cases, which require its application where the criminal has committed a brutal murder. In such instances, the convict himself does not deserve to go on living for the way has treated another life. However just as there are few pros associated with the death penalty, there are also few cons linked with the same."
