Description:

This paper examines the capital punishment in the Untied States, and argues through statistics and philosophy that it is unjust. It describes that the death penalty is a cruel and unusual punishment for the young or mentally deficient. It illustrates that most modern countries have abolished the death penalty. The paper uses Hobbes' concept that "everyman has a birthright to his life" to support it's argument.

From the Paper:

"According to Amnesty International, more than half of all the countries in the world have already abolished the death penalty either in law or in practice: 74% of these countries and territories have eliminated it as punishment for all crimes. An average of more than three countries a year have abolished it in the last decade, and once abolished, it is seldom re-introduced (Amnesty International). "
