There are no ethics to Capital Punishment, and it does not serve as a deterrant. When a condemned inmate is executed, the cause of death on the certificiate is usually listed as homicide.
I support Capital Punishment for one reason. We no longer allow vigilante justice to occur, we no longer have duels, the rights are all with the criminal. The reason we have capital punishment is so we can take revenge on those who have wronged us in a legal way. The day you end Capital Punishment in America is the day you sign the death warrant for this country.
A foreshadow of divine judgment, punishment is the necessary restoration of morality and social justice.
Social justice requires indeed demands uniform standards of sentencing.
This article lacks merit because it fails to provide a bona fide definition of "social justice".
America's supreme law of the land does not guarantee justice, social or otherwise. America's Constitution only guarantees due process in law.
People should refrain from using the expression, social justice, until someone, anyone, can provide a definition that can be reconciled with law. Communication is more productive when all parties use and understand the same word definitions and the same grammar.
