    The death penalty is a good theory, but at the end of the day there are a lot of people sitting on death row or who are executed who shouldn't be, either because they are innocent or because the nature of their crimes aren't heinous enough to justify the punishment.

    Just a note, not all of America has the death penalty, but the vast majority does. xP



    I'm not giving out where I live, but thankfully my state isn't one that has it. :3

    In the United States, some states have the death penalty, and some don't. The power to decide if the death penalty should be allowed is up to the individual states themselves. I live in Pennsylvania and we have the death penalty. I think the death penalty should stay.

    Pros - a serial killer and/or rapist cannot rape other people

    Cons - might kill the wrong person, crime might truly be justified but no one cares (self defense or something and the jury doesn't believe the defendant), could leave a family without a parent (not that someone who committed a crime is a good example as a parent, but still), could leave parents without a kid (any mother or father is emotionally destroyed when his or her kid dies), and stuff like that.

    But which is better, to take the life of one to save the many, or to leave the criminal to live, assuming he or she will eventually change?

    You can't assume someone will change, but is it fair to kill those who will? What if the crime was committed because of a drug or alcohol problem? Can't they go to rehab to get better?

    There are many questions about the death penalty. Some are for it, some are against. Some think that people need to go to therapy and/or rehab and given a second chance. If they screw up, it's death row.

    But then again, why risk the chance of more people dying?

    So maybe it is better to kill the one for the many, even if there a chance for change, because change rarely truly happens.

    This is something I actually think about a lot.

    There are things I agree about it and things I don't. But nonetheless it's too much for me to type so I'm not going into detail. But, I am glad that my state doesn't have the death penalty
