177. it's sounds like this is about vengeance
death penalty does:

1. not deter killers from killing, killers(psychos) kill regardless, maybe even fantasize they will be martyred

2. become expensive to the tax payer

3. and is used erroneously on innocent bystanders all too often


why then? Pure malice, so much so, folks who have noting to do with those victimized want death. Empathy is one thing, but vengeance is another. Letting folks rot in prison for the rest of their lives, now that's punishment. Killing them gets them off the hook.
