I am 100% for death penalties, though I'm not a violent person myself. Death Penalties end all the crimes that shouldn't exist since it's proven prison does nothing and criminals don't change. Death penalties ARE humane because they protect other living beings from the abusers who would otherwise go back to what they were doing. Just trusting that TIME will change them is causing more and more repeats of the same crimes.
I agree with you somewhat, I think murders and serial killers should get the chair, but rapist and pedophiles should get casterated, and wife beaters and child abusers should get 15+ yrs in prison. Putting people in prison for life sentiences is a waste of money on the tax payers part.
