We should abolish the death penalty in the US

The death penalty does more harm than good in today's society. At one time, it may have served a useful purpose, but it is no longer necessary and the small positives it may have are outweighed by the negatives. The death penalty is not able to be overturned, so any mistake in its application cannot be corrected because we do not have the power to resurrect people.
