Capital Punishment

Generally, I am against the death penalty. I don’t feel like it accomplishes anything (there are extensive studies showing that it doesn’t serve as a better deterrent then life imprisonment), it isn’t cheaper than life for the taxpayer, and I don’t see any significant moral advantage to it. But sometimes, life imprisonment just doesn’t seem like enough.

Then again, a quick and painless death doesn’t exactly seem fair either.
