I think that death penalty is too cruel. Inspite of the fact that someone killed somebody it does not matter that our society have rights to kill too, because it means that we also murders.Also we can have mistake killing unguilty person.

I believe the death penalty is good because what are jails going to do, just hold onto criminals in the hopes that they don't escape? Some of these people are serial killers, and shouldn't be allowed to live.

Yes, I know that in our world exist a very dangerous and violent killers and it's awful but I think that the best punishment for them it is a life sentence because the death penalty for them is the easiest solution to get away from the problems that they have done. I believe that life without freedom is the worst thing because they can not enjoy with life. also you wrote something about escape i think that it's not easy to do. but if it wil happen it's better than death of unguilty person. in our world was such situations where suffered innocent people. I advice you to watch the speech of Bryan Stevenson on ted.com "We need to talk about injustice"

Think about all of the people clogging up the prisons. That's way more than the death penalty clogging up trials. Besides, now adays with all of the DNA testing, it's unlikely that a person that is innocent will end up suffering the death penalty. Life is a privelige and if you abuse it, you deserve to suffer the consequences. The consequences for ending another's life shouldn't be continuing to live, it should be suffering the same thing that they inflicted on another. And in most murder cases the death penalty is much more humane than the actual murder itself.

all the crimes are differently not all the comitted crimes can check by the dna so that's why sometimes suffer innocent people. in addition don't you think about public works instead of giving them death penalty?the most important thing of giving them public works is government will have a benefit. For example some countries work on this system and by this they get benefit from prisoners.wHy do we have to kill them when they can do such kind of things??thereby we wii not lose our humanity too.

Other countries have a different set of laws than America does. I live in America, I don't know about you. But the point in this is that we have an established set of laws, and if you break them, they suffer the consequences. And with the economy as it is, we can't afford to give prisoners free jobs that innocent Americans could be paid for, nor support them for their entire lives living.

No it's more expensive to keep a man in a cage.

just a little fact, and i agree with the death penalty, but it is more exspensive for the detah penalty then life in prison.

Life sentence is a waste of money if their just going to stay in prison until they die anyway. Just give them the death penalty especially if they are guilty of a crime committed bad enough for a life sentence. We cant keep paying for prisoners housing, its ridiculous.
