The Death Penalty is a controversial issue and though many people agree on exceptional cases, differences of opinion occur in relation to the death penalty being against the Eighth Amendment, who decides whether a peron should live or die, and who actually kills the victim.
In my oipinion, I feel that the Death Penalty is wrong. In the eighth amendment it states “No cruel or unusual punishment,” people might say that the lethal injection is the solution but who can actually say so. The only people that have felt the lethal injection are dead. Another reason why the Death Penalty is controversial is because who actually has the say so about someone elses life. Not just anybody can agree on a persons death. Think about if it was one of your family members.
