Homework Help: Government

Posted by Blaeten on Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 3:02pm.

Need a response to all 3 statements 1.The US Supreme Court has ruled that the death penalty does not violate the 8th Amendment protection against "cruel and unusual punishment". Still this remains a highly controversial topic. How do you feel about the death penalty? If you are a supporter why and in what instances should it be implemented. If you are not a supporter why not and how would you handle punishment for crimes that usually carry the death penalty as punishment?

2.I agree with the US Supreme court that the death penalty does not violate the 8th Amendment. I am a supporter of the death penalty. Yes, I am a Christian woman and I do believe thou shall not kill, but I feel once a person takes another person's life , they gave up their option to choose whether or not they live or not. Depending on how brutal or violent the crime the person commited should depend on whether or not they get the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

3.This is a very difficult issue, and I struggle with the answer. As a Christian, I strongly believe in “Thou shalt not kill”, and I can’t justify taking the life of another human being, even if that person has killed someone else. I think that God alone should have the power to take a person’s life. However, I believe that people who have brutally ruined or ended the life of another human being should be treated harshly. I wish criminals could do physical labor that would be benefit society, but I know that would be hard to enforce.
