How could I organize my essay? Need help and opinion It’s about if I believe it should be reinstated or banned?

I have to do a 2-3 page MLA format research paper.It is on if the death penalty should be reinstated or banned.I said it should be reinstated....because it was easier.I actually believe it should be banned, because I think it is more torturous to stay in jail for the rest of your life then to get the death penalty, and that some killer or something doesn't deserve to have rights.Although that is an opinion...and I need to back it up with I don't know how I can prove that point of view, so I just did why I think it should be banned.In my paper I took a more psychological stand point, that being in jail goes against the 8th amendment because of the mental stresses, and development of mental illnesses and mental break downs can be seen as cruel and unusual punishment, therefor going against the 8th amendment...However, I feel odd taking a stand that because it is different....really different, and some people use someones mental state as a bad excuse or what ever, and two because it isn't what I truely believe in....but if I had to listen to the law and remove my biases...I would be taking it from a legal and psychological stand point...actually in my these I said "from a legal and psychological stand point..." just to show that isn't my real point of view...What is your opinion? Is it weird or different? Should I re do it?Also, if you think I should re-do it, how should I organize my essay? or How should I organize the banned part, to support my opinion...what would go in the body be is what I mainly need to know?.Most of my essay was about the psychological part because the rest were kind of back ground information helping me lead to the psychological part.

    The death penalty has a foundation in justice, as do all criminal sanctions, and it spares innocent lives. Anti death penalty arguments are either false or the pro death penalty arguments are stronger. Proof below.

    I am totally against the death penalty and I would have a very difficult time attempting to justify it. It is actually much more difficult to justify if.The best place to start working on an essay on the death penalty is at [external link] …Click on ideas for research papers and debates.In the meantime, my take (sources below):For the worst crimes, life without parole is better, for many reasons. I’m against the death penalty not because of sympathy for criminals but because it doesn’t reduce crime, prolongs the anguish of families of murder victims, costs a whole lot more than life in prison, and, worst of all, risks executions of innocent people.The worst thing about it. Errors:The system can make tragic mistakes. Cameron Todd Willingham was executed for setting the fire that killed his children, based on what even the Texas Forensics Science Commission acknowledges was junk science. Modern forensics has shown the fire was accidental, not arson. We’ll never know for sure how many people have been executed for crimes they didn’t commit. As of now, 140 wrongly convicted people on death row have been exonerated. DNA is rarely available in homicides, often irrelevant (as in Willingham’s case) and can’t guarantee we won’t execute innocent people. Capital juries are dominated by people who favor the death penalty and are more likely to vote to convict. Keeping killers off the streets for good:Life without parole, on the books in most states, also prevents reoffending. It means what it says, and spending the rest of your life locked up, knowing you’ll never be free, is no picnic. Two big advantages: -an innocent person serving life can be released from prison -life without parole costs less than the death penaltyCosts, a surprise to many people:Study after study has found that the death penalty is much more expensive than life in prison. Since the stakes are so high, the process is far more complex than for any other kind of criminal case. The largest costs come at the pre-trial and trial stages. These apply whether or not the defendant is convicted, let alone sentenced to death. Crime reduction (deterrence):The death penalty doesn’t keep us safer. Homicide rates for states that use the death penalty are consistently higher than for those that don’t. The most recent FBI data confirms this. For people without a conscience, fear of being caught is the best deterrent.Who gets it:The death penalty isn’t reserved for the worst crimes, but for defendants with the worst lawyers. It doesn’t apply to people with money. Practically everyone sentenced to death had to rely on an overworked public defender. How many people with money have been executed?Victims: People assume that families of murder victims want the death penalty imposed. It isn’t necessarily so. Some are against it on moral grounds. But even families who have supported it in principle have testified to the protracted and unavoidable damage that the death penalty process does to families like theirs and that life without parole is an appropriate alternative.It comes down to whether we should keep the death penalty for retribution or revenge in spite of its flaws and in spite of the huge toll it exacts on society.Edit: For the impact on those who carry out executions I would look at [external link] …and, for the impact on families of murder victimsSunday, March 28, 2010, Nashua New Hampshire Telegraph Death penalty hurts – not helps – families of murder victims By Kathleen M.
