Although Texas is one of the last states with the death penalty, maybe there is a reason why these states have made it illegal. Is killing people really the ultimate 'punishment'?
Why would the government want or have the desire to kill people? It does not make sense to me. Financially, it is the better alternative to life imprisonment but, wouldn't the death penalty be doing these 'convicts' a favor?
When you lie to your parents, is it more of a punishment to yourself before your parents even find out that you were lying? I know for me, personally, my concience gives me a hard enough time before my parents even get a hold of me once they find out that I lied. If we kill these convicted murderers, then we are doing them a favor by not letting them fully live with the consequences.
Plus, if our jails are filling up that quickly that we have to start killing people to house them all, then something is seriously wrong with our society!
