Should we rescind death penalty in Taiwan?
Recently the hottest issue in Taiwan is whether we stop implementing death penalty or not? Some people agreed with the cancel of death penalty. They were endlessly trying to save all the criminals who committed serious crimes. But the majority of the public in Taiwan were strongly and angrily against the abrogation of death of penalty.
The following are both their reason to support their points of view.
The reason the public are for the abrogation of capital punishment
1. Nobody has the right to kill others despite judges.
2. The enforcement of death penalty can’t really make offenders repent of their sins.
3. Most of the advanced countries in the world also abrogate the capital punishment.
The reason the public are against the abrogation of capital sentence
1. Criminals should deserve sentence commensurate with their crimes.
2. The family members of some of the victims will continually suffer from the spirit torments if murderers are still well alive.
3. If death penalty is abolished, no matter how many people a murderer kills, he or she still cannot be sentenced to death.
With regard to this issue, I am on the side against the abolishment of death penalty. Most of people who are for the abrogation of capital sentence are kind and gentle, and we can see this from their efforts for those murderers. But it does not mean that is correct or better to reduce the crimes in society. According to the third reason of the opposition of the abrogation of death penalty, we can predict clearly that criminals will make more crazy sins if they know they will not be dead because of what they do. That also means there will be more victims caused by the law to protect murderers.
For example, in Taiwan a rapist who was bailed raped a woman again, and then he even killed the victim. And in the other countries like America, a college student from South Korea killed 33 people in Virginia in 2007.
Should we still give those abominable criminals a chance to live? If we do so, how we console the victims family?
There is an adage in Han, which is that killing the villain is a way to maintain justice.
We know most of murderers did a variety of crimes because they lack love, or received much mistreatment from their parents when they were young children.
But it is the truth we cannot change. If we are not able to reform criminals personality, we have to carry out the sentence they deserve to support the justice and protect upright people. Therefore, I think it is necessary to enforce death penalty.

Is there a need to rescind death penalty in Taiwan?
the death penalty debate in Taiwan has aroused widespread public
controversy. Some people agreed with the abolition of death penalty as
it exempts criminals involved in serious crimes from death, but the
majority of Taiwanese insisted that the capital punishment should stay.
listen to the voices of our people.
Why people are for the
abrogation of death penalty?
has the right to take one's life
2. The enforcement of
death penalty doesn't really reduce serious crimes
3. Many developed
countries abrogate the capital
Why people are against the abrogation of death
1. Criminals should deserve heavy penalty for the sake of
2. It helps the families of some victims to relieve spiritual
torment by making the criminals pay the penalty
3. By abolishing the
death penalty, a rise in serious crime rate is expected
regard to this issue, I strongly subscribe to the view that the death
penalty should not be abolished. It's merciful of those to support the
abrogation of capital punishment for the sake of murderers and we can
see this from their efforts trying to make this materialize. But the fact is this
doesn't help reduce crime. As I've mentioned before, abrogating the
death penalty will only encourage more crimes to happen as the criminals
know that they won't be sentenced to death after all. This also means
there will be more innocent victims being sacrificed due the law
Take Taiwan for example, there was a case
in which a rapist raped and killed another woman victim after he was
bailed. In American, a college student from South Korea killed 33 people
in Virginia in 2007.
How are we to console victims' families convincingly if we can't
make criminals pay the price but are resigned to tolerating and
remitting them? Do spare the families a thought. It's just not fair!

In conclusion, an adage in Han says killing villains of any kind is a step towards justice. Lack of parental love and abuse since a young age are the main culprits why murderers commit a variety of crimes.

As we all know, this world is made up of good and evil, if we're unable to reform a criminal's character, let the justice do its job. At last, I think the death penalty should stay, not to mention the need for future enforcement,
