Death penalty should only be used for the most serious of offences involving abusers, rapists and murderers.

Yes, I don't believe in death penalty. So the person who has done a crime and is dead, but what did the person learn from that....

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.
