Almost all the states in the US have the death penalty. Some people think that if you commit a murder you give up your own right to live. Once someone is executed, they cannot commit any more crimes. We could get rid of “race complications” by applying the death penalty to all murder cases. Having criminals appeal their sentences over and over is hugely expensive. While some countries have different methods of capital punishment, the principle of “an eye for an eye” remains true. We must also remember that some criminals are too dangerous to be reformed, and capital punishment is right for them.
