An essay for IELTS: Without capital punishment our lives are less secure and crimes or violence increase.

Crime is on the rise. Violence is taking its toll on the present society. The sudden increase in the present day violence and the vagaries of crime has made the present generation to revisit the possibility of capital punishment. Only when the situation demands it and with extreme care, Capital punishment should be used as deterrent to prevent violence.

Common man no longer feels secure and is constantly affected by the violence around him. Life has to return to state where he feels more secure and protected. Reduction in crime is a must. A strong deterrent has to be used to prevent this. Life imprisonment or capital punishment seems appropraite in this situation. It is the severity of crime that should decide whether capital punishment is a must.

Capital punishment has a major loop hole. The person may be innocent and at the the present all the evidence is against him. But, tomorrow new evidence may come to light. In such scenarios capital punishment cannot be reverted. In fact one wise said that it is better for a 1000 criminals to be acquitted than one innocent person to die. How valid is the statement? Can you allow 1000 villains to be set free and prey on 10000 more? Is it not better that one die? Also capital punishment can be misused. Many innocent people have lost their lives when capital punishment was misused for political gain. This is one of the strongest deterrents not to have capital punishment.

Except for the misuse, if capital punishment is carefully used it can serve as major deterrent force to combat violence and crime. It is better that a second thought needs to given for capital punishment.
