The Death Penalty has been a mode of punishment since time immemorial. The arguments for and against have not changed much over the years. Crimes as well as the mode of punishment correlate to the culture and form of civilization from which they emerge. The problem of crime and punishment has bothered the human minds for a long time. By nature, every crime should be punished appropriately. Following this, each country has created a special set of laws which define the type of punishment for various crimes. These laws are enacted together with the other laws to form the country’s constitution. Death penalty has been practiced in some countries as a punishment for certain crimes and circumstances. This paper focuses on the analysis in supporting and opposing the death penalty sentence as a measure to curb crime in some countries. However, with death penalty still effective and being practiced in some countries, there are other countries with the religious believe that no man is justified to take the life of another.
