  Ethics, Logic and Capital Punishment

Chapter 9 in your text discusses moral arguments advanced about capital punishment. The articles “Killing in Good Conscience: What’s Wrong With Sunstein and Vermeule’s Lesser Evil Argument for Capital Punishment and Other Human Rights Violations?” and How social media is pushing the limits of legal ethics (Links to an external site.) address ethical issues regarding the death penalty (Blumenson, 2007; Harris, 2011). In this discussion, address capital punishment and its implementation in the United States. Examine its use and application against the logical fallacy of “two wrongs make a right.” If capital punishment can be proven to be a logical fallacy, discuss the efficacy of its continued use.

Guided Response: Your analyses here will be rooted in both logic and ethics. What is the best, rational argument in support of capital punishment? How can the pros to capital punishment overcome the logical fallacy of “two wrongs make a right”?

Review your colleagues’ posts, and substantively respond in a meaningful way to at least two of your peers.
