Re: death penalty

Not only is the death penalty not a deterrent, it could even be an encouragement.

Meaning: If a criminal believes that what he or she is about to do, is a capital offense and they will be executed for it, they may decide to go out in a blaze of glory so to speak, in the assumption that they have nothing to lose.
