No. Sometimes the death penalty does not seem like enough for truly brutal crimes.

Yes, except for the most heinous crimes! Until investigations and trials are free from error (tampering with evidence, dna samples/evidence getting mixed up at labs, etc.), no one can be sure that innocent people won't be put to death mistakenly.

A strong emotional reaction can be one wishes ill will against anyone committing a crime, especially abuse, rape or murder. However, to bear that with compassion and conscience means one isn't reducing one's self to the level of the perpetrator of the crime itself. One can have all one's liberties taken away, and that can feel like a greater sentence than having one's life snuffed out.
