Should the death penalty be abolished in the U.S.?


As of April 2012, 33 U.S. states allow the death penalty as a punishment. In 2010, there were 46 legal executions in the U.S. In 2011, there were 43 and these were the only legal executions carried out in the Western Hemisphere.

    Thanks for your reply. I tend to oppose the death penalty because it is not fairly distributed & it is barbaric compared to trends in the rest of the world. There have also been those later proven innocent. Tough issue.

    I agree that there are many who don't deserve our tax dollars for 30 years or for the rest of their lives. I'm just not sure killing them is the answer. What happens to those later proven innocent? Thanks so much for your reply.
