There is no doubt that the United States of America has used death penalty as a method of punishment in their legal system since the 17th Century. This essay is going to seek to explain why the United States of America has not yet abolished the death penalty; furthermore, it will discuss why they decided to resume the temporary suspension of the death penalty throughout the years 1966-1976. There is no doubt that death penalty in the United States of America has become a highly debated topic since it is considered a violation of human rights according to International Convention of Civil and Political Rights. Moreover, the essay will state different theories and arguments used by both proponents and opponents of death penalty in discussions about the method. The essay will also discuss two case studies in order to illustrate how legal proceedings and the application of the death penalty can be executed. In summary the essay will come to the conclusion, by using analyses of arguments, that some causes may be the base for why the United States have not abolished the death penalty. (Less)
