136. death penalty should exist but not expanded
I think there are some cases where a crime is so brutal and the murderer is so depraved that no punishment could never make amends for it so it requires the most extreme punishment that can be given which is loss of life. Life without parole isn't really punishment because as someone said above that someone this depraved would really care less. I'm not a fan of the concept of executing every murderer or expanding it for non-murderers.
