There are countries that implement the death penalty for perpetrators of heinous crimes. The judge would say that a heinous crime is unthinkable to be committed by a human being hence the ending of life of that criminal is to save the world from more criminality. The Philippines had abolished the death penalty in 1987. Advocates are now clamoring to bring it back due to the crimes that occur and heinous crimes are getting prevalent. But the Catholic church is against death penalty for the simple reason that the judicial system is not perfect. What if the judge had made a mistake and sent to the gallows an innocent man?
