End Capital Punishment In ALL of America

      LeShea Thomas

      Atlanta, GA

Capital punishment is essentially unnecessary. This Petition is not meant to condone the alleged actions of those who have been and will be executed one day. However, it is common principle that two wrongs don't make a right. A life sentence in jail is more than enough. If a person is later found to be innocent, a death sentence cannot be reversed. Due to the fact that the right verdict is not always given in every court case,  nobody deserves to die at the hands of the judicial system. It is impossible to convey that killing is wrong by taking someone's life. It's paradoxical and hypocritical. I know that this is under the jurisdiction of the state, but the flaws of our justice system are being internationally recognized right now, so this needs to be addressed nationally. Please support this petition for change. -LeShea Thomas

      Man is not allowed to take another man´s life!

      It is inhuman and even below animal! Man should not destroy what he is unable to create!!

      Human right to live is higher than any man-created morality!

      Life is a right and its protection, no matter the circumstances and whatever it takes, is everyone's duty. Why do we kill people who kill people to show them that killing people is wrong? We're all Troy Davis!

      After the scimpest of evidence for Troy Davis, I don't believe Capital punishment is okay. I cringed when the officers family thought that killing a man, any man, whether he was guilty or innocent, would make them able to go on with their life. .Their life will never be the same and neither will the Davis's.
