That essay is great writing. It is hard to believe that sort of stuff really does happen.

very well organized paper. Did you consider that we spend millions of dollars to imprison people instead of giving them the death penalty? It would be cheaper as a society to kill them if they have committed a murder. Please read my paper on the arguement for obtaining a guide

One, good essay, I doubt I could write anything that good, and two, I agree.
I especially like the point "we're killing people to show other people it is wrong to kill people", as that's my reasoning. I don't believe taking a life is really a solution. In the words of Colonel Lanser from John Steinbeck's "The Moon is Down": "We kill an enemy and make twenty more".
Making punishments more severe is not going to make people stop committing the crime. Trust me, I've got a rebellious little sister and the greater the punishment, the more she feels the desire to get in trouble. And she's not the only one I know.
Not to mention a lot of people really don't think about the punishment when they commit the crime.
Well, I've heard very convincing arguments coming from those for and against the death penalty, but this is the side I've stuck with so far. Later.

I completely agree, and great essay. It's not a great thing to have on my mind, though. Every time I think of these things I get more and more disappointed in this country.
Peace and Love

Glad you got your paper done (finally!)

This is very well written, but I do not agree with it at all.
America has a higher murder rate than Australia, France, Finland... because of the nature of our society... because we see guns blowing people's heads off every single day on tv-all this anger over the simplest things. Our country is violent, rude, and unimaginably ignorant (as a whole). Allowing muderers to sit in jail with two meals everyday (probably much better than they were getting at home) for thirty years, while the public pays with their taxes for him to sit there is completely rediculous.
We shouldn't loosen our punishments (people in America today will do anything they want if they think that there's a way they can get away with it), if anything, we should tighten them significantly.
oh wow, sorry for rambling. Just people don't see things like we (writers, I guess?) do. We see things in the idealistic, how things could be if everyone wasn't so stupid, but 97 percent of everyone else do not.
But, anyway, this is very good for an English essay.
Good job. [:
