Is the Death Penalty an Effective Punishment? Yes. In at least one important respect, it is. It simply cannot be argued that a killer, once executed, can ever kill again. The Death Penalty does not stop people from killing others. The only thing it does stop is killers from killing people again. Some statistics indicate that Capital Punishment has killed more blacks then whites and more poor then rich. There is nothing wrong with the Death Penalty. If someone kills another they should be punished. This process cost over 400,000 of dollars. I would say my that money is well spent. If it is going to stop a crazy man from killing again then so be it. I don't know if it is immoral or cruel. I do know that no human should be able to play the part of God or the Devil. People are suppose to live and die, we can't make someone live if there no life.

We can stop someone from dying when there alive. Were not suppose to kill others. I do not think that a child the age of 12 and older should get away with murder just because there so young. Adults think they wouldn't understand death. I knew what death was when I was in 5th grade I was nine and my Grandfather died. I knew what that ment. I don't think it is right for a man that is 18 to be punished to the Death Penalty for killing a man. When a twelve year old boy who was playing with his daddy's gun and kills his best friend doesn't get but more then a few years in jail. Kids have a lot of power now days and some think they can get away with murder. I don't think it...
