Assignment 34: Anticipation Guide; Of Mice and Men

I agree with the fact that states with the death penalty have lower murder rates because it makes sense that the criminals of the states fear death and think about what they do and its consequences then that of the criminals from states that do not have the death penalty. It is understood that the death penalty serves as a ‘barrier’ to crime because death is more harsh punishment than jail therefore, the murder rates would be lower because it is human nature to value one’s life over anything else. Compared to states with no death penalty, the states that do have the penalty tend to be more secure and safer because crime has punishments and there are fewer consequences in states without the death penalty then that of states with it and therefore there are fewer murders in the states with the punishment. According to human nature, if it is known to a criminal, that there is a penalty of life for taking a life, the criminal tend to think whether the exchange of life for life is worth it. In fact, the death penalty is just that, an exchange of life for a life, the criminals who commit murder are more likely to think whether or not they want to lose their life for killing someone else. Criminals, who are also people, have innate natures of self preservation and do not want to lose their lives for anything and with the death penalty, they have more reservation of committing murder.
