5 Shocking Facts About Capital Punishment

The majority of countries have already abolished the capital punishment against prisoners, as it goes against the UN charter for human rights. Several countries, however, still practice this form of punishment, including China, India, Indonesia, and the United States. While most people simply consider this a justified act, others still are fighting to have it completely abolished from the judicial system. However, there is quite a bit about the capital punishment that most people don’t even know. So, to enlighten everyone, here are five shocking facts.

5. Countries

As of right now, the majority of countries have already abolished the capital punishment. Those who have not include: China, Iran, North Korean, Yemen, and the United States. These are where the majority of executions take place.

4. Crime Rates
States and countries that currently play host to the death penalty as a response to violent crimes actually tend to have significantly higher violence crime rates than those who have abolished capital punishment.

3 .Guillotine
The final person to have been sentenced to death by the guillotine in France was Hamida Djandoubi, who died underneath the device in 1977. Following the execution, France abolished the death penalty.

2. Human Rights
The majority of countries who currently allow for executions of criminals tend to also be the most well known countries for human rights violations and abuse. Should this change, perhaps the death penalty will be removed.

1. Extradition
Although European countries tend to work with the US to extradite prisoners when possible, if they believe the death penalty is a possibility for the criminal’s crime, then most of these countries won’t extradite the prisoner to the US.
