Nothing against America but, in the year 2009 970 people died cause of Death penalty.
2 was white the rest Black. Thats racist okay, some of them died just because of consuming drugs (crack) and they "sold" it at schools which got no real proof.
12% of America are black people.
Anyways what do you think about the Death penalty?
I say it's dumb because sometimes they kill them and after some years it comes out that they didn't do nothing. What do you can do when they killed him / her already? NOTHING.
Even when someone kills another one it is not allowed to take his life just put him in Prison for life, may he think about what he did and it is more "pain" than just die.
/EDIT: @ DoubleDutch if someone dies cause of death penalty 120 years of prison is even cheaper.
