“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. – J Robert Oppenheimer.
No, not immediate execution.
I would, however, reduce the amount of time for appeals.
Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
Maybe you would like to be that innocent life that gets snuffed due to a bad judge or jury, I would not.
While I wouldn't support immediate execution. I would change the whole process. Make it cost less and reduce the number/time of appeals. Also, it should be done by public hanging, not lethal injection hidden away somewhere.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
I say maybe.It should depend on the strength of the evidence. The weaker the evidence the more appeals you get.If they got you on video killing people then after a guilty verdict they should take you out back and put a bullet in your head, no last meal no visitation or anything like that.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
It's generally carried out in private as the authorities do not want the public to have the opportunity to witness its barbarism.

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
