The use of death penalty remains a controversial issue for years. There has been debates whether or not the death penalty should be used. In my point of view, death penalty is a violent and brutal act that is against human moral principles and does little good for the country. Therefore, it should be abolished. No one can deny that the fact that the death penalty is a brutal action of killing. In a sense of morality, there is no difference between a society killing a criminal and criminal killing someone. They are both violent acts. “Thou shalt not kill”, the bible sets out the basic respect toward people’s life. Neither any individual nor country and society, has the right to decide if a person should live or die. No doubt that the death penalty disregards the basic right of human beings. It’s wrong enough for murder to kill others. But it doesn’t mean to kill criminals for victim. It can’t bring back the lives of those who already died.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
