Death Penalty

Statistics say that it costs over 100,000 dollars a year to keep a prisoner in jail. This money comes out of every tax payers paycheck.

Prisons should not be a comfortable place for a person to be in. The prisoners should not be allowed to do anything. Murderers should pay for what they did and sitting in a small cell for the rest of their life with nothing to do will get them to think about many things that they have done wrong. Two wrongs definitely do not make a right. ...
