One of my favorite concepts is the Code of Hammurabi which said that ‘if man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out.” This relates to capital punishment because if you kill someone in a degree high enough to receive the death penalty it is the same concept as the Hammurabi Code. I feel that if you are stupid enough to do the crime then you should have to pay the price for that crime in whatever way that would be. In my opinion is that everyone should follow Hammurabi’s code and live by the eye for an eye concept. That means if you get caught stealing, cut off your hand, if you kill someone, you will die. This would lower the cost of maintain prisons because less people would be in them. The only people in prison would be the accused waiting on a trial but they should not be in prison that long either.
The death penalty is not the easy way out because the easy way out would be sitting in jail where you get free food, housing, TV, weight room access, and sport fields. Inmates can also socialize with other people that are a waste to society too. So the easy way out is not death it is sitting in jail living a tax free life not paying for anything while people that actually have a life and do something with their life pay for their dumb silly self to sit in jail.
I also believe that people should get one sh0t at a trial and appeal, so the trial and then the one appeal not keep appealing. Also when the defendant gets sentenced to the death penalty, they should be put to death in a timely manner and not wait twenty years for people to get put to death. If they kept the appeals to one and killed the person in a timely manner it would save a lot of money. Death penalty also brings relief to the family of the victim. This is not saying they are sick because they want to see someone die just because, they want people to die under the death penalty because they are idiotic enough to kill someone.
