The paper refutes the numerous arguments made by supporters of the death penalty. The paper uses the high profile case of Timothy McVeigh to prove that capital punishment does not act as a deterrent. It also discusses the paradox of America, champion of human rights, being the only country in Western democracies to still believe in the death penalty for serious offenders.
From the Paper:"Death penalty is undoubtedly the worst form of punishment rendered in a civilized society. Not only the method of administering capital punishment is cruel, it also violates basic rights to life, forgiveness and redemption. Death penalty is based on the principle of an eye for an eye but have we ever pondered its long-term effects on the society or other criminals on death row. Supporters of death penalty argue that this form of severe punishment serves as a deterrent and can help in curbing the rising rate of crime in our country."
