Can anyone give me some arguments and counter arguments as to why we must ban the death penalty. I know that we must ban it because sometimes people are sentanced for a crime they did not commit and. Can you give me stronger arguments.
Tella, I'd suggest you google this - there must be thousands of papers and thus several arguments on this topic.
I think the one you gave might be the strongest? Since this is a action that can't be undone.
Some others could be; what gives us (the society) the right to take a persons life and also if we do that one could argue that we are no better then the perpetrator (if the person was e.g. guilty of taking a persons life).
