Crime and Punishment:death penalty

 The Nagasaki Local Court sentenced the gangster who had shot the former mayor to death during the election campaign to death. The judgment was welcomed by the average citizens. It's quite natural that a murderer who deprives another of life must compensate his/her crime with his/her own life.

 In 1983, on an appeal of a death penalty case, the Supreme Court stipulated the variables to be considered;
・the number of the victims murdered
・the severity of the crime
・the viciousness of the motive
・the cruelty of the method of excecution
・the social impact
If the victim is only one person and the criminal has no previous offenses, a death sentence is unusual.

 Six years ago, a Diet member was killed by a mob-rightist over a personal grudge. The murderer was sentenced to an undefined term of imprisonment, not the death penalty. The bereaved deplored that Japan's judicial branch doesn't assume a determined attitude toward gangsterism.

 At the U.N. Human Rights Council, twelve countries ( the U.K., France, and mainly other European countries ) determined that Japan abolish its capital punishment system. It's obviously unjust interference in an internal domestic matter. In Western countries, murderers are safeguarded from the death penalty while lots of innocent victims are killed by murderers. How Japan governs itself should be decided by the Japanese people.

 According to a poll of 1,000 Japanese citizens, 80.1% believe that Japan's punishment for murder is light, 3.3% believe it is heavy, and 16.6% believe it is appropriate. Thus, most Japanese claim strict punishment for atrocious crimes.

 Japan's high level of public safety is the asset which Western countries cannot possess. We had better never relinquish this irreplaceable legacy inherited from our ancestors and must transmit it to future generations.
