How to use capital punishment in a sentence?

  1. Phelim Kine:

    President Widodo can demonstrate true leadership by ending capital punishment as unacceptable state brutality, president Widodo should recognize that the death penalty is not a crime deterrent but an unjustifiable and barbaric punishment. President Widodo should promote Indonesia as a rights-respecting democracy by joining the countries that have abolished capital punishment.

  2. Scholastic Inc.:

    The October 8, 2018 issue of NY Times Upfront contained an article about capital punishment, with a headline that referenced the perpetrator of the tragic Parkland shootings. A quiz in the accompanying teacher's guide also mentioned the perpetrator by name. The article and the quiz were intended only to provide a platform for meaningful conversations around the history, civics and social impact of the death penalty, we deeply regret if the use of this real life example added in any way to the ongoing suffering of the students, families and educators of the Parkland community.

  3. Agnes Callamard:

    I remind Bahrain that the only thing that distinguishes capital punishment from an arbitrary execution is full respect for the most stringent due process and fair trial guarantees.

  4. Albert Camus:

    What then is capital punishment but the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal's deed, however calculated it may be, can be compared For there to be an equivalence, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal, who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him, and who from that moment onward had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.

  5. Ryan Pack:

    Capital punishment: Capital punishment has no role in a perfect world. But since the world we live in is far from perfect I say reserve it only for the offenders who justly deserve it. We as humanity need to strive for and accomplish a just and peaceful world so that way we can abolish capital punishment altogether.
