Economically and morally better off. Challenge me.

Con

Death Penalty.

A social judgement.

Every step in the process towards that judgement is fallible.

The death penalty is absolute. The judgement can never be absolute.

It is incriminating to suggest that Capital punishment is refused simple to save money, as all taxation is legally bound to the United States Constitutional separation process by law. Meaning when a group take the money away from this purpose, we as a group would be committing a crime in fact breaking law.
This is outside the fact that confining a person for life is cruel and usual punishment. This is the constitutional argument for the use of the wording Capital Punishment. It can be defended as the highest form of punishment that although is harsh it does not prolong torture.

Even if the death penalty was re created under different circumstances so that execution could be spend up/legalized in other nations, it would be a VERY small percentage of money saved and would economically be ineffective considering the current state of many nations around the world.
