Is it right or wrong for the death penalty to happen. Should it be allowed or not. What are your views on this?

I feel that the Death penalty is a harsh punishment in all circumstances, There are situations in which it would prove to be a 'worthy'(use that term lightly) punishment, and times it would not. I feel that the death penalty should be used in extreme circumstances and as a last resort punishment, for those crimes that are seen as 'unthinkable', for example, mass murder without reason.

I totally believe that the death penalty should be used when appropriate. Not just because it is something that can take place, when people think it should happen. I feel like people should have extreme evidence that one committed the crime, before actually trying to put people to their death. And these days people are still kind of races, so if one person is black, they would try to kill him just because of that!
