i believe that capital punishment in texas is just. if someone killed a person the only thing left to do for the goverment is to kill that person who commited murder. some people say rehibilitation is the best route but i say that the person that killed someone had that choice and they made the wrong one.

the fact that someone killed someone then maybe but if the death penalty is excerpted in other crimes well that is wrong I don't believe in taking the easy way out let the killer rot in their cell and be punished for the rest of their lives!

this fact is very true but if you notice i stated in my argument that the death penalty is just if someone killed someone so really you went completely off track of my argument. for further warrant i state that the death penalty is just because there is not an alterative punishment for murder.
