Do you agree that "the End justifies the Means"?

I'm aware that no one can't know the results of one certain act ahead of time. And it's difficult to assess whether a morally right decisions will lead to best overall consequences.
The phrase "the end justifies the means" (in consequentialism theory of morality) is often considered in issues concerning the government's full deliberation of death penalty on heinous crimes. For example, that the death sentence of an alleged murderer could save many innocent lives and will keep the community safe. Although the majority of people would benefit from this, most would never agree to it because of the underlying implications it could impose in the moral philosophy of the society: that what is right is right, what is wrong is wrong.
