    Yes, I understand that the cost of lifetime sentence is much greater, and frankly it maybe more humane to just do a death sentence than a lifetime in prison with no parole.

    The issue is not clear cut, but I lean towards supporting the death penalty.  
    I agree with @islander507 ;

    yes but we shouldn't spend so much money on it. reserve it for those who are 100% proven to commit a serious enough crime and kill them. as long as it's quick I don't care about the method.

    @SaltyDog, it will never be 100% accurate, but if someone is convicted for a violent crime I say death penalty is appropriate - and I agree lets make it a quick decision..that will be better for the tax payers and actually for the criminal (so he doesn't have to think about it too lomg)
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    Yes, But i think it should only be attributed to any kind of murder crimes. You kill, You be killed.
