This paper examines the arguments for and against capital punishment. It provides ample evidence suggesting that capital punishment is an inappropriate form of punishment that does little to address the underlying causes of social unrest and violence.

From the Paper:

"The debate about capital punishment has long been a heated one. Supporters argue that capital punishment offers a form of deterrence; they also argue that it is a form of justice that underscores a society's abhorrence for gruesome acts. On the other hand, opponents argue that capital punishment does not serve an adequate deterrent and still others suggest that capital punishment barbarizes the state and constitutes a moral regression for any putatively progressive society. The following paper will briefly examine both sides and conclude that capital punishment does not serve as an effective deterrent and does little to address the root factors that cause violence. With that in mind, it is do a discussion of this controversial issue that this paper now turns."
