  7. TOPIC : Should the death penalty be banned in Japan?

The death penalty has been a controversial issue in Japan for a long time. While some people believe it is necessary for justice to be served, others argue that it should be banned due to its inhumane nature. In my opinion, the death penalty should be banned in Japan for three reasons.

Main Body:
Firstly, the death penalty is not a fair punishment. In many cases, the accused may not have had access to proper legal representation or evidence may have been mishandled or even fabricated. This means that the death penalty could potentially be given to innocent individuals, which is a grave injustice.

Secondly, the death penalty is a violation of human rights. Every human being has the right to life, and taking someone’s life as punishment for a crime is a violation of this right. Furthermore, execution can cause great mental and emotional suffering for the individual, their family, and loved ones.

Lastly, the death penalty does not serve as a deterrent to crime. Studies have shown that countries with the death penalty do not have lower crime rates than those without it. In fact, some argue that the death penalty can actually lead to an increase in violence, as it perpetuates a cycle of revenge.

In conclusion, I strongly believe that the death penalty should be banned in Japan. Not only is it an unfair and inhumane punishment, but it also fails to serve as a deterrent to crime. Japan should consider alternative forms of punishment that focus on rehabilitation and reducing recidivism rates, rather than on retribution.

Word Count: 224 words.

英語塾:Thank you. Why the death penalty perpetuates a cycle of revenge?

ChatGPT:The death penalty can perpetuate a cycle of revenge because it sends the message that killing someone is an acceptable form of punishment for a crime. This can lead to a culture of violence where individuals seek to take matters into their own hands, rather than relying on the legal system to dispense justice. Furthermore, the death penalty often involves a long legal process and appeals, which can prolong the suffering of victims’ families and friends. This can create a desire for revenge and fuel a cycle of violence and retaliation. Ultimately, the death penalty can create more harm than good by perpetuating a cycle of violence and vengeance, rather than promoting healing and justice.
