Mahatma Gandhi once said, "An eye for an eye will make the world go blind." As old as that quote is, it can be applied to society today. When discussing capital punishment, is it right to kill someone who kills? This is a common question fueling the issue the of capital punishment. We judge killers and other criminals for not having the moral strength to avoid breaking the law, but we are stooping to the same level if we continue to support capital punishment. Capital punishment should be abolished; however, before we decide such a major issue as this, we need to be totally clear of what is happening. Theoretically, it may seem simple; you kill therefore you should be killed. "An eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth," but is it all really that simple?
