Death Penalty

In some states criminals may have to pay there life for the crime they have done. 1,188 people were executed in the US from 1977 through 2009. This is a lot but is this truly moral to make some one pay for a crime with there life? Murder, stealing, ect are all crimes but it is right to punish these people with death. If someone is murder wouldn’t you want to see the kill suffer as he or she had done to your love one. This helps grieving family cope or accept the fact about what has happen and fill that need for revenge. Also paying a crime with your life is scarer that living it out behind bars. Knowing that this could be the end stops other from doing crimes therefore the death penalty is ok.http://deathpenalty.procon.org

Pay Equity

For every dollar a man makes a woman in the same field makes 78 cents. The only difference in pay is because of the different genders. They could be working the same job at the same time do the same thing and the men will still get payed more and with o clear reason why. Almost half the workforce is made up equally men and woman and its unfair that men are paid more for no reason. Some fields are dominated by men like construction and science and could be the reason for this gap in pay.
