CAPITAL PUNISHMENT! A MEASURE OR AN EXTREMITY?

With the high rate of first degree crimes, which has over time become a cause for concern, one wonders if the ‘DEATH PENALTY’ is a justifiable measure for curbing the incessant rise in first degree crimes.

An eight point human rights agenda was launched by Amnesty International, which is focused on Governments implementing recommendations from previous reports about human rights violations which is aimed at abolition of death sentence and as well an end to torture as a means of extracting information from suspects during interrogations. This is probably due to the fact that many countries around the world have abolished capital punishment. However, death penalty is still practiced in some countries such as China, the United States, Indonesia, Nigeria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iran.

The food for thought is if the DEATH PENALTY is an extreme measure or a just cause
