The manhunt that paralyzed a city and the death sentencehanded down by a federal jury on May 15 after a two phase trial. Justice hasbeen done, in the opinion of 70% of those surveyed WashingtonPost–ABC News poll in April.
Support for capital punishment has been an issue recently,but it remains a strong situation like this.Now, Tsarnaev is in no danger ofimminent death. He is one of many 60federal prisoners under sentence of execution. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is now inside a Supermax,the country’s most strict and secure prison, located in Florence, Colorado.The United States remains one of nations in theworld that still doesn’t use the death as penalty for certain crimes. Many seethe penalty as a “barbaric and against American values.
” says WashingtonPost–ABC News poll. Others see it as a veryimportant tool in fighting violent pre-meditated murder. Two things have onceagain brought this issue to a world debate.
One issue is the release of somestudies that show a number of innocent people had been put to death. The secondissue is the punishment for mass murders.Barbaric and violates the Bill of RightsWhether it’s a gas chamber, electric chair, orhanging, lethal injection it’s barbaric to allow states to murder before acrowd of people. We hostility Kim Jong Il whenthey murder their own people while we continue in their footsteps. The U.S.
constitution,8th ammendment prevents the use of “cruel and unusualpunishment”. Many polls ran by the WashingtonPost–ABC News poll think the death penalty isviolating this amendment.Life punishment and more effective?Many people don’t feel much sympathy for amurderer , keep in mind that death may be too good for them.
