In conclusion capital punishment is self contradictory in what it’s trying to achieve. Everyone has heard the phrase “Two wrongs don’t make a right”, Although not many people have heard this quote by Dr.Martin Luther King Jr when he says “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.”

That is exactly what the death penalty is inciting amongst people the chain reaction of evil, instead of discouraging the the use of the death penalty it incites that natural want for revenge once you have been wronged.Often times just knowing that capital punishment is an option is incentive enough for people to decide that will be the fate for the person who has wronged them. Ultimately love is the cure to reprisal, not meaning that the death penalty is in some cases an easily accessible form of vengeance in the legal system and it can be overcome with simple common sense and understanding of what you are doing to someone.Ultimately a difference needs to be made and the only people with power enough to move the mountain that is capital punishment is the people who enable, those being the people that live in this country, the people who live in this democracy, we the people need to make a difference when it comes to the use of capital punishment.
