I was recently pressed into a debate about this. No. The death penalty is worthless on every front.

What if it's hitler?
TBR says2015-04-07T14:43:43.5745825-05:00
The points change little with the severity of the crimes committed.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-07T14:44:39.3903091-05:00
So.. You'd let hitler live?
TBR says2015-04-07T14:45:37.9983820-05:00
I wouldn't support the death penitently for Hitler.

Do you support life in prison?

I support the death penalty for even minor and trivial offenses such as assault and petty theft (or even smelling bad). Why? This planet is so over-populated, any excuse to reduce the population is a good one. If you can't behave then who needs you anyways? Furthermore, executions should happen immediately (no appeals) after judgement is delivered in a court-room (i.E. Ideally in less than 5 minutes in the back of the court house). The corpse can then be immediately used for fuel to provide electricity to the homes of honest and hard working citizens.

@cludwig: I hope that is a joke... While I understand (and disagree with) Malthusian ideas, executing people for parking tickets and smelling bad is really extreme.

@cludwing you wanna know the answer? Gay marriage.

@Diqiucun_Cunmin - I was having a Johnathan Swift moment. I thought my proposal was quite modest.
