ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the movement to bring back capital punishment in New York and New Jersey. Many lawyers and lobbyists are against capital punishment. According to them, frustrating the execution of an individual human being justifies any form of legal deception. A self-governing republic has the power to take human life. But this power is negatively stated in the Bill of Rights. According to the bill, no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law. There is need for people to speak against capital punishment.
