If we use the death penalty to justify crimes then aren't we also committing one. You can not justify a crime with a crime, then you are just as dirty and disgusting as they are. A life sentence is like a death penalty there is no need to take it as far as murder. There should be no death penalty because the ends do not justify the means.


Yes, there should be a death penalty because if somebody kills a ton of people why should they just stay in a cage for the rest of their life. Why should they get to take tons of life but not have their own life taken away? If a dog bites a person. Then they are put down. Why is this different with humans and killing? If there is a lot of proof and they have to real reason then they should be put down.
