The author concludes that capital punishment should be outlawed in all states. I thought that it was good comparing the execution of Troy Davis to a public hanging in Illinois a few years ago. I think that to make his argument better he should have given more reasons as to why capital punishment should be outlawed in all states. Also , he makes the statement that all people can be redeemed but how can you tell and know if all people are actually redeemed .The only people mentioned in this article about making the choice of life or death for someone is the supreme court and governor’s , but what about jurors and what about the victims of murderers , they didn’t have the choice to decide between living and dying . This article barley gives any reasons as to why the death penalty should be outlawed in all states and the reasons that are there don’t provide enough support.
