    Capital Punishment

    323 words, 2 pages

    Capital Punishment First of all I am sort of torn between being for capital punishment and being against it. I believe if we commit a crime, then we should definitely be punished, but is putting a person to death a justifiable act? In my opinion, killing another human being is inhuman, and if we react this way then we are no better than the actual criminal. I know that taxpayers have to pay to take care of criminals, but, as a taxpayer, I would much rather pay to feed criminals than to put them to death without being 100% sure that they are guilty of the crime that they are accused of.

    Photo manipulation is the function of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception through analog or digital means. Its uses, cultural impact, and ethical concerns have made it a subject of interest beyond the technical process and skills involved (Wikepedia).
