Analytical – Government
Can you please help me with notes, ideas, or/and research for the following topic.
There are those who argue that a curious and tragic contradiction exists in our political system. While the U.S. Constitution’s Eighth Amendment prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment,” the United States is the only country in the world in which capital punishment…the death penalty…is consistently applied. Texas easily leads other states in its zeal for enforcing the “ultimate punishment.” A superior essay should address and answer the following questions: Is or should the death penalty be unconstitutional? Why? What are the most salient arguments for and against the death penalty as it is currently practiced in the United States?
