Should the death penalty, be legal?

I say no, and before FromWithin whines, i am prolife now. Anyways, if i am going to be prolife, i might as well be prolife for all people. Jesus said: Let He who is without sin, cast the first stone.
Also, the death penalty constitutes cruel, and unusual punishment, which should be illegal. Jesus also said: Return not evil, for evil.

Many people make mistakes in resume and I think they don't know where to get a resume done professionally and because of this their resume is rejected.

Supporting Evidence: Where to get a resume done professionally (www.resumego.net)
Side: Yes.

I say no, but that is considering current circumstances of society. The fact is that we have the infrastructure to lock up violent criminals for life, and the purpose of the justice system is not to carry out revenge on behalf of the people. That said, in days past, it wasn't so simple- there being fewer prisons capable of holding people for extended periods, logistically it made more sense to have hangings. And, I think, if we're going to still have executions, that's exactly what we need to get back to- public executions in the city center, midday, and televised live. If we're going to be killing people, let's not hide it, let's make a spectacle of it- then we can ask ourselves with honesty how civilized we really are.

The death penalty is downright barbaric if you ask me. It's counter-productive, but more importantly it really illustrates that people are considered the property of the state. That is, the state has the right to kill you if you break laws you've never even agreed to follow in the first place.

Side: Yes.
