Why Must Death Punishment?

Why Must Death Punishment?

At present there are many countries that have implemented the death punishment. In certain cases of serious crimes, the judge who presided over the court usually gave the defendant the death sentence. However, why should there be a death sentence? Are there no other penalties that can replace the death punishment?

It should be understood beforehand that this death punishment is actually one way to prevent people from committing crimes. For example, country imposes the death punishment on perpetrators of corruption, no matter whether the perpetrator embezzles company or state money.

Crime of corruption is one type of serious crime because it can harm the company or the country. If the punishment for corruption is only a prison sentence, it is certain that the perpetrators will never feel deterred. They will not be afraid to do it again if they have another chance.

In some countries, corruption cases have more severe penalties. For example, the state of China punishes the perpetrators of corruption with the death punishment and makes the families of the perpetrators poor by confiscating all of their assets. If other countries with very high levels of corruption apply such penalties that would be the right step because such penalties have been proven to reduce corruption rates.

It could be said that the death punishment is a punishment that can suppress crime. However, in some cases, the death punishment is too heavy a sentence. For example, there was a cellphone thief caught and finally sentenced to death by the court. The sentence is clearly not comparable because it does not harm the country and the crime includes minor crimes. In addition, the death punishment itself is basically a sentence that violates human rights.

Unlike the case when there is a terrorist caught and then sentenced to death. As we have seen, terrorists are now a network that is frightening and at any time their actions can result in many casualties. An example is when they commit suicide bombings in public places. Seeing such crimes, should be enough to make all countries implement the death punishment.
