Death penalty abolished worldwide?

Sounds good, but what happens when your vengeance is itself avenged, and one thing leads to another, and pretty soon everyone is blind?

it takes a lot of resources to keep a person (a criminal) alive for the rest of their life, providing free food, water, clothing and shelter.
A person who could later turn out to be innocent.
That's a problem with the courts, not the punishment itself. And most people who are found innocent still have very questionable character and probably deserve to die for something else.

Scientifically, it is obvious that we don't know nothing after death but we know dead never suffer, never regret and never pay. Death is the last form of liberation. For me, a criminal have to stay alive to pay for his crimes.
The priority should be for prevention rather than justice. Death is the ultimate prevention. They can never commit another crime again. "People getting what they deserve" is a terrible concept that just breeds more and more crime and spirals out of control quickly (especially since one persons view of what someone deserves is completely different to someone elses).

Those saying they are against the death penalty whilst insulting those still for it know that you aren't really against it.
All rest assured knowing that the current status of the death penalty is inconsequential to our continued development. Know that one day it will be incompressible that an idea entertaining the termination of human conciousness was ever conceived of and afterwards completely inconceivable. Rest assured but not easy.
