                                  Do you agree or disagree with capital punishment? Why?"
              Recently, the problem of Capital Punishment has been brought to popular attention. Do we have the right to kill a person? Of course we cannot kill good people, but the men who profoundly endanger public security need to get punishment from the government. The world should keep strong police force on, therefore the government can punishment someone who is evil and we might gain something even better. In the earth, a few harmful criminals should not exist. In my opinion, the death penalty should not be abolished.
              The first reason that the government should keep Capital Punishment is that its purpose is to punish viciously subjective behavior. One of the universal issues we are faced with is some condemned prisoners won’t change into humane people and they are heretic, obstinate, incorrigible, and altogether unworthy of the mercy we have shown them. If we abolish Capital Punishment, a few criminals think that even though they do very crazy things, they can still live in jail, and the government will pay for food and supply a bed for them to sleep. For instance, Charles Milles Manson is an American and he was found guilty of conspiracy to commit the murders of Sharon Tate and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca carried out by members of the group at his instruction ("The Manson Family"). Before he killed those harmless people, he went to jail many times.   No one can 100% guarantee that some prisoners are repentant of what they did before. If those prisoners still harm society when they walk out of jail, we have made a huge mistake.
                The secondly cause is that the death penalty can make an impartial world. Nowadays there are too many felons in jail. People are against capital punishment because they consider human nature, but they are short of regard for public good. Who respect...
