Arguments for the death penalty
Capital punishment is the right punishment for those who take away life murderers, terrorists and drug peddlers. Those who have taken a life should be killed a life for a life.
Capital punishment is a deterrent. The fear of being executed must surely put off the criminals from committing murder if they know theyll face the death penalty if caught.
One thing is certain: no executed person will ever kill again.
Public opinion wants executions.
The families of those killed need justice and retribution (revenge).
It would surely cost a lot more money to keep murderers in prison serving a life
sentence than it would to execute them.
It is more humane to put someone to death than to keep them locked up for years.
