Because you know we're all about our base, 'bout our base, no rebels...
Let's not forget that many who are tried and convicted of murder who get life sentences continue to kill inside prison.
It should be reformed. I think it should only be used in serious cases where there isn't any reason to believe the person is innocent with their intent being to directly cause harm (not accidental or unintentional). The death penalty shouldn't be lethal injection though, they don't need to be put down in a "painless" or "dignified" way. Their death should be painful with no dignity shown.

I'm not opposed to it, but pragmatically I realize the anti lawyers have one. Some states spend upwards of $20,000,000 on legal fees to execute an inmate. It's not worth it. Deny the lawyers their money and just lock em up for life. Even at $30k a year for incarceration we are tax wise better off.
"What difference" "does it make?"
Our judicial system is never going to consistently rule on who should live and who should die for their crimes, so even if you think people deserve to die and the state has a right to kill them for their crimes, which is a barbaric concept, there is no logical reason to support the death penalty, because personal biases mean it will never be completely executed fairly.
Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.
"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
