I am against death penalty and I live in a country where there is no death penalty. I would rather pay tax to feed humans in prisons rather than thinking about how exactly they should be killed. There is possibility Even the worst criminal can change and become a productive person even in jail. My blood frozen reading some of the comments. I am very very glad we dont have death penalty.

If a person slaughters a human being then they have given up the right to live imo.  HOW they are killed is of little importance except that I don't think it should be torture.  On the other hand, life imprisonment is acceptable if it TRULY is for life.  I think most people would consider this to be the more drastic punishment.  I hear the argument that capital punishment does not prevent murder and that just isn't true.  The person who is executed can NEVER kill again and that is the only reason for doing it.

ok but are you absolutely sure they are guilty? that's the problem. Executing innocents. Our justice system is far, far from infallible.

Every justice system is fallible. That's also why I'm against a quick execution. Since 1973 in the US alone 143 people have been exonerated for their supposed capital crimes after spending many years in prison.

Edit: And since the justice system is fallible, can anyone give an estimate how many innocents were put to death in that time period, or how many are currently awaiting sentence?

No, that never worked! It's been tried, over and over.

And one thing I like the most about the US is its diversity.

I am strongly against death penalty as there are better ways to punish. Even if its death penalty its still a murder to execute it.

And in case of someone who killed many, death penalty is not a punishment but a release. Why not make worst offenders, murderers and rapists work in mines or something like that, so they can work instead being an expense for a state. No one should decide if someone should live or die and if someone murder then he should pay but not with his life as he can be used as he did use his victims.
The problem is that you still need to feed them, clean them and because you are working mine, serious health issues start to arise and then you have prisoner strikes etc. its a no go for me

*Edit and also they tend to have shocking abuse cases esp in North Korea and everywhere else labor camps are

More enlightened states like Illinois have abolished the death penalty.
I have to disagree with this point of view.  Some crimes are so bad that the only suitable punishment is removal from the planet(death being the cheapest and fasting way to do this).  We should not waste any money or resources than necessary to carry out the punishment on these criminals either.  Once found guilty and all of the delay tactics and appeals are over with, they should be executed in the cheapest and fastest way possible.

But capital Punishment is much more expensive than imprisonment for life. Study on the costs of capital punishment in Colorado. Especially because of the trial costs.

Edit: Capital punishment in the USA.

That's only because of the way we do the death penalty. We use injections and most of the cost are from all the legal crap and appeals involved in a death penalty. Our death penalty is more like okay, we will get to killing you in twenty years and have a court hearing everyone few months(which is were a lot of the cost is).


If we made it more efficient it would be way cheaper
