Death Penalty

I am against the death penalty for the following reasons:

1. There's no scientific evidence that it acts as a deterrent.

2. One day we may find a cure for people's anti-social behaviour. In fact, I think I have already found the cure. The cure is to teach criminals two things - fight subjugation and empathy for strangers. Ie, adopt Mu'tazilah.

3. It costs more to sentence someone to death than it does to keep them locked up.

4. The punishment is not able to be revoked when the guilty verdict is overturned due to new evidence or improved investigative methods. (thanks to Steve in comment section).
