Based on a work at k12.thoughtfullearning.com/assessmentmodels/capital-punishment-wrong.
Individuals that believe in the death penalty believe that capital punishment will deter murderers.
In this paper, I will be arguing that the death penalty does not deter criminals and that the United States should outlaw the practice.
 These statistics taken from this article may be inaccurate and should be closely examined. In a pro death penalty article, the author believes that, “When someone takes a life, the balance of justice is disturbed.
There is a huge amount of conflicting evidence from similar studies done currently and in the past. Logically if a killer is put to death then there would be no more killings. Unless that balance is restored, society succumbs to a rule of violence.
Currently fifty-eight nations practice the death penalty.
Currently the United States will only use the death penalty, if one commits first-degree murder.
Before I make my argument, I would like to provide some background information regarding the death penalty to the readers.
The idea of capital punishment was brought over from Britain, when the founding fathers declared independence.
Those that are for the death penalty claims that the death penalty will serve as a deterrence and is the only way for retribution against murderers.
Both issues are highly debatable and have been a subject of criticism.
