The death penalty has its wrongdoings but provides specific deterrence by subjecting the criminal to death so they can no longer kill any more people. Heinous criminals have been dealt with through this system, and a story is included in the article of two people being put to death for torturing an innocent four-year-old child. The death penalty is written in law through the 5th and 14th Amendments, making it constitutionally correct. This article also addresses the problem with innocent people and the system’s flaws of racial discrimination. Still, if the system can be made right judiciously, then capital punishment could be appropriate at times.
