1. To keep people in prison for their whole lives is inhumane
2. These people have done something worthy of death
3. When someone is a criminal they (most times) do not learn from their actions Ted Bundy said he was proud of his feats till the day he died (of the death penalty)
4. The victims families get real closure
5. people left in prison too long get let out! Charles Manson is going to be getting out of prison because California did not have a death penalty

I don't think the death penalty should exist because surely that's a quick exit for those who have done wrong? You say that keeping them in prison for something their whole lives is inhumane but surely they must have done something incredibly wrong to get that sentence so they should have this because it is a punishment which they rightfully deserve. Also, the victime families are going to get real closure if said criminal has a sentence for life - the family will get justice and the criminal will suffer.

We don't have a right to kill another person's life because we are not God to judge that person. If that person is a killer only god can give him a sentenced in the judgement day but in our generation we should take him to jail forever.
