For: Most criminals (even murderers) fear death -just like normal people. Hence the death penalty not only gives retribution and justice, but also deters other would -be killers.

Against: There have been quite a few cases where an innocent person has been convicted and only  many years later has it been proved that the person was innocent. If the death penalty had been given, that person would have been wrongly killed - an act of gross injustice.
