You act like there is something inherently wrong with the death penalty...there isn't. It is a 100% cure against future killing from the convicted individual. No other form of imprisonment or rehabiliatation has this phenomenal success rate. You want to stop the death penalty? It's a relatively easy fix...have people stop murdering others. I think that once convicted and the sentence for death is handed down, it should be carried out very quickly...24 hours or sooner.
