The advantages and disadvantages of abolishing the death penalty in Hong Kong


In the past few years, Hong Kong have happened some serious cases of which its criminals have severely offended the law .They are being imprisoned for the life ,but some citizens think they should have death penalty. It triggered a heated debate about the necessity of capital punishment.

While some scholars welcome the coming of execution, others doubt the effectiveness of death penalty and the related moral issues created by the using of death penalty. This essay examines both the arguments for and against abolishing the death penalty in Hong Kong.


Abolishing the death penalty can modify the judicial system. The goal of setting the penalty is preventing the violation of law by the deterrence, not to torture the criminal [1]. Death penalty do not match the nature of law. It is because death penalty is an emotional revenge, unlike repaying a debt which is a rational calculation.

The debtors can reduce their loss by getting back the reception of lost money, however, the life of victim could not be resuscitated by using death penalty. The reason to adopt the capital punishment is mainly based on “An eye for an eye” which is a common social belief.

Some citizen think that the murderer should be killed because of their behavior based on “an eye for an eye”. However, “an eye for an eye” cannot be the measurement to decide the penalty dealt to the criminal. It is ridiculous that trigger more problem. For example, the penalty of a rapist cannot be the rape.

Capital punishment cannot ameliorate the situation. It also leaves no scope to the case and triggers a great deal of moral issues. Using the life imprisonment to replace the death penalty can avoid the conflict with the nature of law and have the same deterrence.


To respect the entitling of right to life, the death penalty should keep abolishing. According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights [2], it stated that every human being enjoys the “right to life, liberty and security”. The essence of all kinds of death penalty are killing which is not acceptable even though the killing is based on a.....[read full text]

It is clear that there are both advantages and disadvantages to abolishing the capital punishment in Hong Kong. Death penalty can modify the judicial system and maintain the dominance of right to life. These benefits should be considered to against the heavy financial burden and blocking of anger emotion created in society.


Taking these arguments into consideration, I believe that using the capital

Punishment in Hong Kong would affect the stability of the society. Hong Kong has banned the execution over 20 years. The society and most citizens are accustomed to the new legal system. The crime rate has dropped after the abolishing of execution [10]. To keep the stability of the society, government should keep abolishing death penalty.
