40. Only have to ask one question to arrive at the answer
"Does the death penalty serve as a deterrent to violent crime?"

If you can't prove statistically that it is, (I think it would be impossible) then you must abolish it. The rest of the industriaized world arrived at this answer and deemed it cruel and uncivilized. There is nothing out there that shows that the fear of the death penalty (fear of being caught, yes) in any way deters capital crimes.
