    2430 words, 10 pages

    Today, in modern law, the death penalty is corporal punishment. It is irreversible. It ends the lives of those punished, instead of temporarily imprisoning them. Although capital punishment is not intended to inflict physical pain, execution is the only corporal punishment still applied to adults. The usual alternative to the death penalty is life-long imprisonment. The media commonly report that the American public overwhelmingly supports the death penalty. More careful analysis of public attitudes, however, reveals that most Americans would oppose the death penalty if convicted mur

    Capital Punishment For Corporate Criminals

    1237 words, 5 pages

    There are arguments that differ from one another on the topic of capital punishment on corporate criminals. Some of them involve execution just like a cold blooded murderer could receive. There are ways to look at what should be done to criminals of such nature and what degree to punish them. The argument states that if capital punishment is suitable and permissible for some murderers, then it is completely permissible for corporate criminals involved in the loss of billions of dollars in innocent victims and workers.

    Although over seventy percent of Americans support the death penalty, the majority of these supporters are unversed in the manner by which the United States government carries out this form of punishment. In addition, the arguments put forth to support their position are either myths or easily refuted. The issue of capital punishment has been tossed back and forth in our nation's courts for quite a while, but both sides of the issue have also been argued for hundreds, if not thousands, of years prior to the rash of court cases beginning in the 1970's.

In addition, the means of execution should not matter if the basic principle behind this form of justice can be justified by the specific crime. This is why my opinion is that any form of capital punishment in effect in the United States today is warranted and fair. Recent executions have drawn a great deal of publicity to the subject of whether death by electrocution is "cruel and unusual". Cases such as that of Pedro Medina, whose mask caught on fire during the procedure, and Jesse Tafero,
