New Hampshire Could Repeal the Death Penalty, But Should It?
The New Hampshire Senate voted to repeal the state's death penalty on Thursday, according to WMUR. The vote was 17-6.
The news station reported that the bill also passed the House with a veto-proof majority and will now go to Gov. Chris Sununu.
Look, I'm a huge fan of documentaries like "Making A Murderer," "Amanda Knox," "The Keepers" (that's pretty much all I watch on TV besides sports), and in my humble opinion, the court system in America is broken.
Humans make mistakes, people lie under oath, lots of people confess to crimes they never committed, and evidence gets tampered with. It's something that can happen.
And sometimes it seems like there are prosecutors who just want to win the case. If you are up to date on news events, I'm sure you're seen all the stories of people getting out of jail after many years. I mean it's crazy, people who have even been on death row.
Too many innocent people have been put to death. It has to be 100 percent guilty all the time. And that doesn't seem to be the case. So how are you going to take a human life just because you think he or she is guilty?
Yes, someone lost a life, but killing someone will not bring that person back. Two wrongs don't make a right.
I say put them behind bars as punishment, so I hope the death penalty is repealed. What do you think?
