Execution is a barbaric, unnecessary form of punishment for any crime If you think that anyone deserves to die or you find peace in the loss of a life you have just as evil intentions as said criminal. Life imprisonment seems like the most justified punishment for a murderer. An entire life to be contained and reflect on the choices they made. "You wouldn't say that if it happened to someone close to you" You're right because hysterical anger and depression doesn't bring rational thought.v
