Death penalty should be enforced because how is america going to learn that a crime is not okay. if have a death penalty they will be scared off.

I think it should but it depends on what crimes caused by the individual. Strict punishments towards heavy crimes such as murder, rape and such teaches the society and individuals who are planning on taking part in any of these actions to think twice before facing the consequences. As for serving life sentences in jail, there's a very slim chance any of these criminals could have a change of heart and it is not always proportioned to their crimes. Can a man who caused rape be left off serving a life sentence in jail which is not that insufferable as we think, while the victim faces a life time of trauma, lack of confidence and self-esteem, and humiliation from society? Serious crimes should be dealt with serious punishments.

Prisoners should be sentence to death if they ask for it, what is the point of sentencing to life? It's like a living hell. It's better if those prisoners died in real hell. "theta_pinch", when your sentence to life what is the point of learning? Life sentences without even a parole aren't going anywhere. So what do you mean by "LEARNING"?
