The article is about the capital punishment existence and its importance in the lessening of the innocent individuals and is written upon the influence of the Hampshire prisoners who were convicted as murderers and are escaped from the federal prison. The discussion is that an intentional killer is always a killer even if he has killed once and must have to face the capital punishment because if the prisoners would escape like this, the murderer would have a chance to kill other people. There is an argument which is the base of the article to be written on specifically the capital punishment which was that the community has no awareness or the education of the purpose of the capital punishment. There are many examples and arguments which are describing the capital punishment and the reaction of the abolitionists. The main aim of this paper is to analyze the article critically and to discuss the capital punishment importance for the safety of the innocent people from being killed.
In the United States as well as all over the world, uncountable innocent individuals are killed because of personal conflicts, social, political and economic disturbances of the country as well as the international war issues. The murderers and killers are rarely being captured or punished. In many developed countries, the capital punishment is not implemented properly and just a life imprisonment is sentenced which is not a solution for removing the crime from the society and to give a lesson to the people who are about to act similarly. If concerned to the capital punishment with the life hazards which happens regularly like accidents on the roads, unintentional wrong medical care and failure of roller coasters, it must be noted that a huge number of innocent individuals are being killed in these hazards and capital punishment have no proper role in minimizing the innocent individual’s deaths. This argument could not be counted against the capital punishment as it is elating the natural hazards with the capital punishments.
The escape of the murderers from the prison of Hampshire is one of the national issues and it would be considered highly that if the murderer would be successful in killing more people than the blame would definitely go to the attorneys who haven’t focused on the capital punishment but only ended up in the imprisonment of the prisoner (Prager, Dennis). Due to this fact it can be analyzed that the capital punishment should be practiced upon the murder guilty individuals who are found psychologically and with evidence of killing innocent individuals. Also, there must be no tolerance in specifically this kind of cases.
In a nutshell of this problem, an example of the country must be quoted where the crime rate is negligible and there is the very rare practice of a crime. It’s the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where the murderer is not tolerated and capital punishment is prominently practiced to show the people that there is no chance given to the individual who has taken the life of another individual in the presence of law and justice. The comparatively United States and many other European countries have multiple times more practice of crime than that of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Critics have negative remarks for the capital punishment but still, it is highly requested that for the security of the innocent individuals to implement the rules of capital punishment in all the states of the United States. This will help in lessening the confidence of the people to commit any murder in the future as they will learn that there is no way to live if they would commit a murder or killing of some innocent individual.
