I know that the states that have it on the books are forced to pay a very heavy price in order to use it. It costs working class individuals a whole lot of money to carry it out. But, I'm in favor of death penalty. Its a way to make people think first before doing grave actions such as brutal killings. Its also a way to lessen the population we have today.Jun 24, 2011
Americans remain divided on the death penalty, which is not used in many other nations in the industrialized world.

When prosecuting attorneys get it wrong, it makes things worse.Jun 24, 2011
