Death penalty should be abolished. You are your decisions. Be against it.

     I would like to extend my belief about a proposition about death penalty to enlighten minds of people who tolerate such behavior. Punishing a person through death is an act that makes you murderer.  You are your actions and decisions.

     Once implemented, it`s irrevocable. Death penalty can affect the lives of innocent people. Those people might be sentenced to death for crimes which they did not commit. Think of the case of Cameron Todd Willingham. He was executed for allegedly causing a fire that killed his daughters. As the investigation went further, evidence showed that it wasn`t him who caused the fire. However, it was already too late. He was already executed.

     Remember that any form of killing is not humane, whether it`s lethal injection, hanging, shooting, and beheading. It violates a vast number of human rights and God`s commandments. We must not think only of ourselves, but also each and everyone`s sake. Let us be considerate, just, and understanding. Killing is for the sinners. Let us be civilized.
