The death Penalty shouldn't be legal because no one should deserve to die even if they have done wrong. They will get there punishment in jail. Instead of being killed they should be in jail for life.

I also kind of agree, but what happens when all of the jails get crowded because of these people who should have got the death penalty didn't get the death penalty. The jails get crowded and the town has to start letting people go. Towns are already getting crowded jails, the last thing we need is more criminals getting out of jail because the murderers need a place to stay. Also I want to bring up this fact. Would you rather die in jail for life or would you rather just die in the beginning, because there are some cases where I would rather die than go to jail for the rest of my life. So the only thing that keeping them in jail will do is 1) Crowd up the jails letting robbers get out of jail because the murderers are moving in.
2) Make all of the murderers sit in jail for the rest of their lives doing nothing.

On the news they have said that people who do little things that would have originally been put to jail have been set free because of the space. I also want to ask the voters if they could excuse my forefeit, I have been very busy because I am moving. Please excuse my forefeit.
