Essay: Should Canada bring back the Death Penalty?

The death penalty is the ultimate punishment that punishes a person by killing. In 1976 Canada abolished the death penalty. I totally disagree with that decision. This essay will discuss why Canada should bring back the death penalty.

Clifford Olson killed several children in British Columbia. He attracted children by giving them money and offering to drive them home. A person like Olson, who kills people, especially children, does not deserve to live. Although most religions say that killing is bad, I think it is fair for the person who has murdered innocent people to be killed himself. It brings justice to their sad families and respect for the justice system

Instead of killing the murderer, some countries’ justice system makes the criminal live in jail for a part or for the rest of his life. While the criminal is in jail, the country has to feed him and protect him. That costs a lot of money, especially if the criminal has to live in prison for many years. It would be better for the country and for the taxpayers if the murderer was put to death. Looking after a prisoner and trying to rehabilitate him is expensive. It is also virtually impossible to reform a hardened or psychopathic criminal. It would therefore be wiser to use the money for a worthwhile cause, such as children's education or the defence of the country.

The death penalty may also deter other criminals from committing crimes. Two of the most famous death penalty states in America are Texas and Florida. Capital punishment was actually suspended in the United States from 1972 through 1976 but when violent crimes increased, many states brought it back. Subsequently, the violent crime rate in many states went down. If Canada brings back the death penalty, its violent crime rate will probably decrease too.

Indeed, the death penalty is vital for the justice system of individual countries and the world. Bringing back the death penalty could help Canada’s economy by diverting money formerly wasted on the care of unreformable prisoners to worthwhile projects. It also could bring a feeling of closure, satisfaction, and security to families whose loved ones were brutally murdered. The death penalty is justice in action. Therefore, Canada must reinstate it.
