such as corruption, serial killing, and terrorism(for me only those kind of crimes deserve death penalty for the criminals).
I do understand your concern about miss conviction, but I see that the chance is very low and rarely happen in countries that already using death penalties as the worst of the worst punishment(such as China, Saudi Arabia, etc). because as I know the process taken by the court before giving death penalty for criminal is very careful(looking for evidences, witnesses, etc).
I believe it's the most effective way to give detterence effects towards the "future criminals" because they will likely to feel afraid to do the crimes remembering the consequence is death. Therefore I belive it would lower the crime rates.

I can't agree without a) knowing which crime rates are the "certain crime rates" and b) knowing how you suggest we prevent innocent people from being executed for crimes they didn't commit (it is very hard to apologize for getting the wrong guy when you have already killed him.
