Review the Argument Against the Death Penalty posted on Google Classroom

* Review the Argument Against the Death Penalty posted on Google Classroom.
* Write an essay of approximately 500 words in which you respond to that argument.
*Make sure you are not just responding to the issue of capital punishment in general, but are responding to the particular argument against it that was posted on the board in class and on Google Classroom. In order to receive credit for this assignment you must demonstrate an understanding of that specific argument and engage with it.
*The following are questions that you should think about when writing your essay. A good essay will answer at least some if not all of them:
What possible counterarguments to the argument can you think of?
Is the argument compelling or does it fall short in some way?
How, if at all, has your opinion of this issue developed over time? Has this argument had any effect on your position on this issue? Why or why not?
The argument does not address whether ‘an eye for an eye’ is wrong or whether our justice system should focus on rehabilitation as opposed to retribution. Is that a strength or weakness of the argument?
