Jared J 12 December 2014 Dead Wrong About the Death Penalty The Death Penalty, the ultimate punishment. But is it worth it? The death penalty was outlawed in Iowa in 1965. Now people think we should bring it back. Iowa should continue to not have the death penalty and use the alternative, life in prison. This is because it has some major flaws. First and foremost death penalty states have higher murder rates. In 2013 the average death penalty state murder rate was a 4.4. While non-...
