    The anti death penalty arguments are false or the pro death penalty arguments are stronger.

    Hello Matt, The history of death penalty exists since the earliest records of human history. Most historical records show that death penalty was a part of justice system. Death penalty is one of the compensations by death of the wrongdoer, and is usually performed by those with power. However, within a small community, crimes were rare. Furthermore, most would hesitate to inflict death on a member of the community. Therefore executions were extremely rare. Usually, formal apology, compensation by money and shunning were enough as a form of justice for crimes committed by those in or neighbouring communities.On the other hand, there were strong displeasing reputations to crimes committed by outsiders. Consequently, even small crimes committed by outsiders were severely punished because it was considered to be an assault on the community. The method varied from beating and enslavement to executions… Read the complete essay here:

    I think you should look up castration (probably for repeat sex offenders).Corporal punishment but I think its barbaric.I think you should look up what medieval kings used to do with treasoners (They were very creative)

    Most Western Democracies have outlawed the death penalty. Countries like Russia, Bolivia and Brazil limit prison terms to 30 years. In Mexico it is 60 years. Nepal has the shortest maximum and 10 years.So long terms but not life terms are one option. You could also require restitution, where a murderer has to work to pay back the family of the murdered individual. In ancient times there was banishment, where an individual was cast out of society. That can happen today in the case of treason, where someone who might otherwise be put to death for spying is traded to another country for spies who have been imprisoned there. With an murder case, banishment would not really be an option, unless there were a country willing to take a murderer after he was released from prison.Hard labor in the service of the state, think of the old days with chain gangs, is another option. This is a form a restitution, but can also be a form of punishment depending on the work.

    It seems like you are asking what the court system could do after a particularly dreadful crime has been committed and a possible perpetrator has been apprehended. I think that you should specify the objectives of the court system. Is the purpose to provide for retribution, to exact revenge, or to protect the public from possible future bad acts by the person in custody or by others who might commit similar crimes.You should also take a look at the concept of “restorative justice” which can help with all but the first two objectives. You will get some useful ideas at [external link] … Here’s a quote that gives you some idea of what it is about:”For some time now there has been growing dissatisfaction with the justice system. Citizens feel disconnected, victims are dissatisfied, and those working in the system are frustrated. Policymakers are increasingly concerned about the burgeoning cost of justice in the face of this discontent and the high rates of recidivism that exist.Over the past decades, there has been growing interest in new approaches to justice, which involve the community and focus on the victim.The current system, in which crime is considered an act against the State, works on a premise that largely ignores the victim and the community that is hurt most by crime. Instead, it focuses on punishing offenders without forcing them to face the impact of their crimes.”
