I would be more likely to support the death penalty, if it were only used in rare instances and for the most heinous crimes. I don't think it should be overused/used in every single case of murder or homicide, used as a tool to make examples out of people, or used for political clout or votes. There are too many concerns- as you pointed out- with putting the government in charge of deciding if people live or die.
