I'm on the fence about this one, but, a life in prison isn't much of a life at all. Maybe we should focus on improving prison life for the less severe cases.

the death penalty does too. that's why most modern countries have banned it.

You think when a person did a very terrible thing he should be dead? his life doesn't matter anymore?

no he's right. the cost of execution is about the same as a few decades in prison.

it's the court time that is super expensive. the repeated appeals. attorneys, judges bailiffs etc. you have to pay all of them to be there to for all their appeals. it is very expensive.

do they? in my opinion life in prison without parole is far worse than death.

and if it happens that you made a mistake, there is no releasing someone from death.

I'm not going into the moral question, I think the potential innocence and inadequate punishment make the death penalty a bad choice.

the due process of death row is far far more expensive than lifelong incarceration.
