The death penalty is quite a sensitive subject in my opinion. I must say that in a way I do agree with it because some do commit horrible crimes and not only deserve the death penalty, but they would be a threat for society for an indefinite time. Thus, it would really be pointless to incarcerate one for the rest of his life if he could never get a shot at being free again because of the damage he could cause. On the other hand it doesn’t seem right and/or fair for a sane human to decide the death of another, it is illegal in the E.U. (European Union), and “rarely” innocent persons get convicted.
In conclusion I do agree with it, but I believe that it should be used extremely rare and only when really necessary, to avoid horrible accidents. To my knowledge 24 people have been wrongfully accused of crimes and convicted to the death penalty since 2004.
