We as humans need to protect and help one another. I understand that to some people the death penalty should be legalized. But who are we to play God, to kill those we deem deserve death? We are hypocrites if we kill a murder. What would be next? Raping a rapist? It must be taken in perspective. Yes, it's only used in extreme cases, but even in Sweden there is a prison where the maximum sentence is 12 years. They use their resources to educate and help the prisoners. The prisoners come out of there well educated and do not go back to hurting others. This should be considered. After all, we are humans, and it is not morally correct to kill other humans.
