Does Capital Punishment Deter Crime: A Deep Analyzation

Sachin Chaudhury


Abstract: Citizens of United States always want their country to be much safer than ever before. In order to achieve these authorities takes strict decisions against criminals. Capital punishment may sound the most effective and best way to punish a criminal but this is extremely misleading. Citizens need to understand that capital punishment doesnt deter crime instead it is hurting America. According to 83.6 % of famous criminologists, capital punishment does not deter crime. There are several instances where poor African Americans are sentenced to death penalty just because of the color. Whereas, California government can save up to $5 billion by simply avoiding capital punishment. We need to realize that the person who committed the crime is also a human. Capital punishment should be abolished except in case of extreme barbarism or terrorism culprits. Being a Citizen of a developed and educated country we need to analyze why capital punishment is worthless and is uncalled for, rather we should invest in correction facility and try to change mindset of the inmate through a series of rigorous counseling.
