The Death can be defined as any government punishment that involves death to the victim. It does not have to be a certain kind of death. Deaths can be torturous.

I feel that the death penalty should be legal because people getting out of prison gives them a chance to re offend, it gives the family of the victims better closure, there are also a lot of over-populated prisons in America this will clear up many of those issues...
