This article was talking about why the military should abolish the death penalty but they only made one argument and that was racism. The author did not make any implied arguments at all . Arguments that could be used in this article are the cost of capital punishment . The article does use an example , however , the author says that the number of military death penalty cases is to small of a number , so the argument doesn’t really make sense.

This article was talking about the reasons why the united states should abolish the death penalty. The author gave a lot of reasons and supported his reasons. The implied  premise was that capital punishment fails to deter crime. The author states this a little but fails to give support as to why capital punishment fails to deter crime. Overall , this was a good article that could possibly change a person’s opinion on the death penalty.
