In my opinon, death penalty should be enforced. The population without death penalty would surely have more murders and terrible crimes. If you accept this argument, you will be challenged with factual evidenc and logic, so be ready.

Good, now we make our arguments. For one, the U.S crime rate went down when lethal injection was used in 37 of 50 states of the United States. In the year 2004, when the 37 states used lethal injection, the crime rate started to go down. About 535 violent U.S crimes were committed in the year 2000. The rate dropped to 449 crimes by 2008. So apparently, it reduces crime. It will also deter many from violent crimes, or at least make them think twice. It is also cheaper to do the death penalty, without jail housing fees, and food fees. This will conclude my intitial argument.
