Yes. Absolutely. There are certain people who do not care about the law or people or anything. They cannot be rehabilitated, and it's too dangerous to risk them getting back at innocent people.
At the same time, I think it needs to be reserved for the worst of the worst. When there's plenty of evidence, eyewitnesses, DNA, etc. There needs to be zero doubt in the eyes of the law for it to be used because, yes, people have been wrongfully convicted and ended up on death row. I'm talking mass shooters, serial killers, serial rapists, etc with overwhelming evidence against them.
The other big problem with the death penalty is the cost. Because we want to be certain, there are trials and re-trials and appeals. It ends up costing more to put someone on death row than to just give them life in prison. I'd fix this by expediting the whole process. If we're absolutely 100% certain that the person is guilty, then there should be no appeal. Trial, conviction, execution. Move it along. It's better for us, and it's probably better for them.0

Very on the fence about it, because i just don't believe every case that underwent it actually deserved it.
I'm not even sure i can say that anyone deserves it. Hence y I'm confused about it and yet to form a solid opinion.1
