The death penalty was first introduced in Malaysia during the British colonial era. Acceptance of the death penalty among death row prisoners attributes to various factors which includes emotional factors that are either positive or negative which ranges from high, medium and low levels. A lot of studies had been conducted in western countries related to death penalty among prisoner. Studies among death row prisoners in Malaysia is very limited due to security reasons, researchers does not have easy access to death row prisoners. The research shows that death row prisoner’s involvement in serious crime attributes to their financial problems in order to obtain drugs, peers, and the surrounding
environment. Apart from that, this study also looked into the causes of emotional distraught which have resulted in personal and organizational threats and endangerment.
