People who do very bad things usually get the death penalty instead of just being put in jail.

But in certain cases the death penalty will be a blessing to them or be what they deserve if they did something really bad.

But its not right for the government and others to be able to put people to death and then it not be okay for normal people to do it.

Pro

Well yeah but normal people will do it for personal reasons just to get back at the person. A death penalty is supposed to be used Like the saying an eye for an eye.The death penalty gives closure to the victim's families who have suffered.

Yes. But other people might think that since people of higher position are killing people, they might think it's okay.

Then they are stupid. Do you want people going around killing people close to you for something that barley matters? The court/judge decides what will happen and if what they did fits the crime that they are give. Even sometimes it does not turn out like we would like.
