Capital punishment is an outdated method to deal with prisoners that have committed dreadful felonies. Currently 32 states have the death penalty in the United States. The U.S. is the only country on the western hemisphere with this punishment while countries in the middle east still have it. Since 1970, 1,400 felonies have been executed and 28 death penalties this past year. In due time the death penalty will be removed and with America’s luck that’s going to be the same era, where crime levels around the nation increase. Without capital punishment criminals will not have the fear of being sent to death before committing a crime.

Capital punishment makes sence to me but having it cost 70% more than life time incarceration isn’t economical. (Last Name, Year)
