مادة اللغة الانجليزية
My sister was walking home from work two years ago when two men stopped her and tried to steal her handbag.She resisted and they stabbed her in the police caught them.Theywer found guilty of murder and they're now in prison.That's then I chged my views on the death penalty.
Before that, it was pretty easy to be liberal and to say that Ididn't beliebe in capital punishment.but not now . there was no boubt that the police caught my sister's killers : there were eye witnesses ; there was forensic evidence . I thought those guys should die for what they did . they not only took her life , they changed the lives of her family and friends . the lives of her husband and her two littel children will never be the same .
some pepole say that if you execute a murderer you become a murderer yourself , but that's notthe way I see it.If you take someone's life, you lose the right to keep your own.If you murder someone, you should be forded to experience the same horror as your victim : pain and suffering, and the anticipation of the end of your life.People think that is cruel.But my sister idn't have the luxury of saying goodbye.
Some people also think that death is the easy way out for a murderer-that life imprisonment means a lifetime of suffering in rison. I don't think so.Live imprisonment is a lifetime of hot meals, reading and television -at hte taxpayer's expense . Buteath is.
