    Why Judges Break Their Pen After Passing A Death Sentence?

    DEATH SENTENCE

    Judges all over the world have followed the custom of breaking the nib of a pen after passing a death sentence since the existence of legal courts. But do you understand why they do it?

    There are several reasons why judges around the world resort to this action after passing judgment.

    The following are the reasons why this practice is used in courtrooms:

    The act of breaking the nib is symbolic. It is done so that the pen that was used to sign the person’s life away will never be used to do so again.

    In general, the death penalty is a last resort in dealing with extremely anti-social acts that cannot be resolved through other means.

    The nib is broken in order to get rid of the tainted pen (having ordered the death of an individual). The presiding judge performs this act to distance himself/herself from the judgment and the guilt associated with it.
