I am against the death penalty and here is why. I'll keep it short. Most who receive the death penalty probably deserve it and their lives are judged valueless by society. Their right to life has been denied for the actions they have taken according to the rules put forth by society. Can we agree on that? But the problem is errors occur. Innocents are convicted using the same rules that convicted the guilty. These lives are worth as much as yours or mine. Their lives are worth more than the sum of the guilty, therefore in the name of preventing an innocent person from mistakenly being put to death no one should be given the death sentence.
