There are a lot of different ways to punish the crimers and murders, but the best punishment is death penalty and it should be practiced for following reasons:

1) It is a huge financial problem. People pay taxes to their government, and part of them is spent on the prisoners. According to the article 'Oregon's Death Penalty: the Practical Reality', which was published in the academic journal 'Lewis and Clark Laws Review' in 2013 by Aliza Kaplan, there are nearly 2 million people in the prison in USA. And the government spend nearly 51 billion dollars on them per year. It is a huge number of money! Moreover, it could be spent on charity, on development of medicine or education. So, to practice the death penalty on the very dangerous crimers, who killed people is a good decision to solve this problem.

2) It is a huge social problem. There are a lot of examples, when crimers did a prison break to revenge to judders or to other people or to do a crime again. Diana Falco, the author of the article 'Public Opinion and the Death Penalty', which was published in the academic journal 'Qualitative Report' in 2011, 700,000 crimers get their freedom every year and nearly the same number of crimers or more get to prison. Moreover, nearly one third of that number of people get into prison again in the nearest 3 year. It means, that prison doesn't do the bad people better. It also proves, that the death penalty should be practiced.

Why stick to death penalty?
I strongly disagree of it. I mean, I know, a country is much more prosperous if there are no criminals, or murderers or whatsoever, some think that without crooks, they would be much more confident going out of their houses. And if ever those criminals are caught, is DEATH PENALTY the solution?
Nope, there are a lot of ways to punish a criminal, it's up to the government how to do it.
One solution is how about following Hammurabi's code? "An eye for an eye"
Anyway, imagine, if your loved ones, for example, your mother or father would be caught in act punishable by death, what would you do?
You'll only blame yourself in the folly you, yourself created.

hmmph...
It's what you wanted and yet I see you have no answer?!

DEATH PENALTY should not be allowed!
It's because this said penalty, not only is harsh, but it also disturbs the balance of life..!
Don't you think that GOD approved of this?
Don't you think the PEOPLE would agree?

though some countries have this law implemented, it doesn't mean the Philippines or any other countries would copy it!

Another reason in support of Death Penalty is - its the biggest Deterrent. That's why drug problem in China is so little compared to US.

If the punishment is harsh, crime is less. Have you ever been to Dubai, its a modern wonder and best part is there is almost zero crime. It feels good when you walk around on the street.
