The death penalty should be available as a punishment for serious crimes. To what extent do you agree?
I believe it would be justified to award death penalty for serious crimes. Murder, rape and treason could be regarded as serious crimes. It is imperative to award death penalty for such crimes as the existence of such crimes is not justifiable in the society. Death penalty would dissuade the criminals from committing these heinous crimes and peace would prevail in our lives. Witnessing a lurid murder would have devastating effect on an observer’s life and this offence cannot go unpunished. Awarding less harsh punishments for such crimes would be deemed as our acceptance towards such gruesome acts.
