I used to be in favor of the death penalty but now I'm against it. For many reasons:
- The possibility of executing an innocent person is just too great.
- It's expensive. Probably more so than incarceration.
- For the worst criminals, the kind that you'd think would deserve death: Death's too good for them. Let them rot in jail knowing what will eventually happen to them
...it might inspire them to have a change of heart.
