I would be glad to have any correction from you.

Would more severe punishment prevent crime?
I don’t agree with the idea that more severe punishment would prevent crime.
First, more severe punishment would not have no effect on some kinds of criminals who are resigned to death penalty. Even some of them want to sacrifice their lives as a martyr based on personal or religious beliefs. Provided an extreme example, we could expect the most severe penalty to have no deterrent effect on terrorists.
