Humble yourself people, we got no power to kill our own kind and Revenge is too childish for us. Be open to the solutions without violence and stop letting anger control the justice system. Look at Sweden and Norway, they have no capital punishment yet they have low crime rates...we know only cowards will fear death from penalty and only inhumane will kill human so let's stop justifying killings.

One and Second. Morality can't be measured by cheapness

Third. Death penalty should be abolished

Fourth. All those 50 states will be uncivilised

Fifth. Prosecutors must know that the government and the criminal got no difference in their ways (killing)

Sixth. The government is strong and wise enough to bring a ceasefire before a war starts.

Seventh, we will keep the murderers alive not because of what they did but because of who we are, we are humane and innocent ,we are wise enough to rehabilitate the inmate, we value life and don't believe in violence

Eighth,What would you feel if the government offer you to be killed to reduce the world's population?

Ninth, Eye on eye is paying evil by doing evil ,there's no good with this

What I'm proposing here is this. We should only focus on mass murdered, serial killers, and persons who torture children. We should have one trail for these individuals who commit these crimes. The death penalty is reach on unanimous 12-member jury finds "beyond a reasonable doubt" that they were met. Given the carnage in the Florida Parkland shooter here and the callous manner in which the shooter went about causing it, the prosecution would not have much difficulty meeting the burden. So once the jury find this person guilty of these crimes. The death penalty then should be in place immediately. After a week or two he should be sentenced to death by lethal injection.

One. It will diminish the cost of the trail dramatically.

Second. It will save the taxpayer millions, on the trail and incarnating that person.

Third. These cases would be special. Meaning it will only be for these mass murders and persons who torture children.

Fourth. It would be a universal law. Meaning the federal government will be hearing it. It would be for all 50 states.

Fifth. "Prosecutors can identify at least three such factors here, where Cruz: 1) created a grave risk of death to many people; 2) acted in a way that was especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel; and 3) committed the act in a cold, calculated, and premeditated manner."(1)

Sixth. If the government can start a war and stop a war. Then why can't they step in on serious heinous crimes. Such as mass shooters?

Seventh. Why should these mass shooters, or serial killers stay alive? What is the point for them to stay in jail for the rest of their lives?

Eighth. Other countries has a more affected way of handling big crime. Like "China has the largest population on Earth with 1.3 billion people; 5,000 executions would mean one in every 260,000 residents."(2) they also use lethal injection.

Ninth. "EYE for an EYE" "mean we can punish, or even take revenge upon, someone in the exact same manner they used to harm
