What is the purpose of the death penalty?
It is a deterrent of heinous and violent crimes that could be committed in the future by other citizens (deterrent)
There are some crimes for which the death penalty is the only just punishment (retribution)
Winning death penalty verdicts are very economically expensive
In my moral compass, there is nearly no difference between life-long imprisonment and death. In fact, given the choice I would choose death.
The death penalty prevents the perpetrator from committing further violent crimes (a dead murderer can't murder again)
The risk of administering the death penalty unjustly outweighs any potential gain from its administration (poorly administered)
It costs more to imprison someone for life
