Therefore, death penalty fits the purpose of crime punishment. The argument against the death penalty is mainly ethical in its nature as the risk of executing the innocent is high. It is argued that it is basically wrong to kill and that when the state kills it sends out the wrong message to the rest of the country. When people have been killed there is no chance of rehabilitation or criminals trying to make up for crimes. For this reason capital punishment has been called ‘the bluntest of blunt instruments’. However, there is no proof that any innocent person has actually been executed since increased safeguards and appeals were added to the UK death penalty system in the 1970s. Even if such executions have occurred, they are very rare. With the arguments presented above, it seems clear that there are many valid reasons in support of death penalty. On the contrary, anti-death penalty arguments need to be assessed critically, as, for instance, the ethical issue. Further research into the topic is necessary, with more authoritative studies on the deterrent effect of death penalty on the criminal rates, tracing various states in the UK as well as evidence from other nations. It would also be interesting to examine the historical background of nations that have both capital punishment in their law codes and extremely low crime rate to see how the death penalty affects crime rates.
