Death Row

Pros and cons of the Death Penalty

Pros

If the death penalty was to be put back in to place and be known as a regular thing then the death of a criminal could help the victim's family and victim move on, that is if the victim is alive. The death penalty could also keep the criminal from doing the same thing to others. It could stop the possibility of having any other people undergoing what had happened.

Cons

If the death penalty becomes a regular thing then there's a possibility that someone may have been falsely accused and would have no way of getting their life back. It would cause some major issues with people who don't believe it's moral or it's too cruel even for someone who is even being considered for the death penalty. It'll also cause for some problems for those who abuse their power and would just call death penalty on everything
