Common misconception^ Donetsk and North Cyprus and maybe Abkhazia and Luhansk (don't recall for sure) still have the death punishment. Kazakhstan holds the right to do so, but only in special circumstances (I don't recall precisely). I think death is a punishment that should be used in rare circumstances, f.e. is this person likely to get out of gaol, is he a threat to folk?
1) The justice makes mistakes.
2) Killing a murderer doesn't reduce the crimerate in a significant way (it is proved).
3) Executions sometimes fail.
4) Not all murderers deserve to die.
5) Death penalty costs more then lifetime imprisonement.
6) Killing murderers has the sole purpose of revenge, and that is unnaceptable.
7) It is wrong for the state to kill people.
1) That's why the death punishment should not be used lightly.
2) How do you mean? Why would it?
3) Gun does not fail.
4) That's subjective, what don't?
5) I strongly doubt this. You have to give food/water to these folk for years, not just months. A metal shell with a detachable tip and propellers inside costs more than (albeit bad) food for years?
6) First, subjective. Second, you can say imprisoning someone for any crime is "unacceptable revenge".
7) Totally subjective.
