As a way of delivering justice, capital punishment or the death penalty has become the most contentious topic in our society\'s legal system. The death penalty is a legal process in which a person is sentenced to death by the state as a punishment for committing a crime. With the growth in demand for human rights, taking a criminal\'s life has become the most contentious and discussed topic not only on a national but also on a worldwide level. Surprisingly, this method of execution has been used from the beginning of recorded history. The death penalty appears to have been a feature of the judicial system in most historical records of diverse civilizations and basic tribal traditions.
