I actually wish it was expanded (rape and child rape option) and used more . . .
now with that said ANY innocent person found guilty of a crime is terrible and an innocent person being put to death is also very horrific . . .
but just like guns, cars, planes, medicine, alcohol etc etc are responsible for millions of deaths i have not ideas that they should be abolished . . .
You fix whats wrong and improve counter measurements and protocol IMO.
We have bad cops and judges . . . .we don't abolish all cops and judges we try to fix the real issue
I would be simply on board with requiring a higher level of evidence for death . . . but I see no reason to abolish it . . .

getting rid of the penalty altogether does nothing to address any flaws... practically speaking it allows us to ignore those flaws and allows them to persist.
it's a righteous penalty for a qualifying like crime.
