I know many will disagree. To me the death sentence should only be used in extreme cases. Where there is no doubt and removal of the individual is a benefit to society. Mass murderers, serial killers and overt acts of treason. Justice in such matters should be Swift. A few years at most, to allow a reasonable expectation for defense. After 20 years it makes no sense to me to put a man to death over a crime from his youth. It won't bring the dead man back. That being said, there are individuals who are currently in a life sentence that should.... well I'll leave that to any who reads imagination. There are also a couple of professions I think the practitioners of ... yeah best not to kick that can of worms.
