Extrajudicial Killing according to the dictionary is the killing of a person by governmental authorities without the sanction of any judicial proceeding or legal process.

Say a person who pushed drugs when he/she was in his/her teens were caught and rehabilitated was killed in his/her mid 30's because of the record he/she left behind when he/she were teens then it would be unfair. Whereas we have a term called Death penalty which started in 1990 where those convicted criminals to be branded with this penalty is to be executed, although some countries removed this penalty due to human rights it still existed. Death penalty is for criminals who did revolting and gruesome acts that can never be forgiven, another factor for a death penalty to be given is the repeated acts of crime and the lack of regret the criminal has towards his/her crimes.

Speaking of human rights,
