I do not believe the Prisons can reform people.
I do not believe only guilty people go to prison.
If a person admits guilt or is proven beyond doubt (as in DNA)
then the taxpayer should not pay for and cover the burden of the crime.
At that time only I agree with capitol punishment

When capital punishment is deserved and justified beyond all reasonable doubt then it should be enforced. The role of capital punishment is to prevent those who are a danger to society from escalating and causing more pain and harm.

I think they ought to reserve it for the most brutal and senseless crimes. And I think they ought to use it more. The violent crimes in this country are becoming more vicious and more frequent. If you know for certain that you'll die for your crime and soon, you're less likely to commit it.

There have been 209 post-conviction DNA exonerations in United States history. These stories are becoming more familiar as more innocent people gain their freedom through post-conviction testing. They are not proof, however, that our system is righting itself. Some exonerations come AFTER execution. For more details on those were exonerated (the crime, and the time) see http://www.innocenceproject.org

Because we are killing and imprisoning innocent people we can not ethically or morally have a death penalty.

Former, prosecutor, newly elected Dallas County District Attorney, is on a mission to change the system in the most notorious county in the UNITED STATES.

Self Justification can lead to wrongful convictions because the prosecutor of the case is convinced that she could not make such a mistake and put an innocent person to death or in prison.

Eyewitness misidentification is the single greatest cause of wrongful convictions nationwide, playing a role in more than 75% of convictions overturned through DNA testing.

One of the driving forces is that good people in law enforcement want to get bad people off the street. It is not always so simple.

If you are really interested in this question see the book referenced below.

The southern (Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas) portion of the US has the highest crime rate and the most people on death row. Capital punishment does not prevent crime.

Capital punishment is very expensive. There are constitutional legal procedures that are necessary when you are to take a person's life away. It costs more to do this than leave someone in prison for life.
