Capital Punishment is the dealth pentaly. Before I never knew this. Im doing a report on Capital Punishment for my school so bear with me, this is what I have learned so far.
Capital Punishment is a big controversary, currently in the state of CA a man named Tookie Williams is on Death Row. It is being debated weather or nopt to take his life away. This man was one of the founders of "The Crips" gang. He now has written a book about gang violonce and has won amny awards for writing these books. And now they are going to take his life away. Many poeple support this and many poeple dont. Its is this type of cintroversary that is important to deal with in our society, should they atke his life? He has given up the ways of gang life and has writen books geared twards kids to stop them from taking part in activities such as gang violence, is this enoguh to stop them. Is this enough to end the viloence in our communities?
