There is one last item to consider in the case of allowing or disbanding the death penalty, and that is the trend that the rest of the world is following. As a world leader, the United States has an obligation to set a standard that the rest of the world can aspire towards. As reported by the Huffington post, the United States is one of only one tenth of the countries of the world that still carries out state executions, and further, the United States is the only Western democracy to still keep this form of punishment (Huffington Post). Some of the other nations that still practice the death penalty includes: China, North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, and Syria. These are nations that, for the greater part, the United States would not like to be associated with. However, the United States has drawn lots of criticism over the use of the death penalty .
A creature with a gaze attack can actively attempt to use its gaze as an attack action. The creature simply chooses a target within range, and that opponent must attempt a saving throw . If the target has chosen to defend against the gaze as discussed above, the opponent gets a chance to avoid the saving throw (either 50% chance for averting eyes or 100% chance for shutting eyes). It is possible for an opponent to save against a creature’s gaze twice during the same round, once before its own action and once during the creature’s action.
