That's up for debate

This. 

Someone who becomes a repeat offender(meaning that they have killed multiple times) should be given less of a chance to live. I know it sounds harsh but if the person is hellbent on being a murderer we have to do something about it

I guess it is a sign of our advancing civilisation that we reject "eye for an eye" punishment.

I have watched TV programs that have broadcast cases where the death penalty was carried out on an innocent person, it is difficult not to feel uneasy about it. I have also watched and read about crimes where they are so heinous you wonder why they are allowed to live.

I do sit on the fence, therefore.

Having said all that, if a similar act was committed on any of my children I would serve the death penalty, personally.

For once that is not easier said than done.

Sorry but I'm an opinionated git. :-)
I agree 100%. I'm against with no exceptions. 

EDIT: Although religious grounds are out in my case.

It's hard for me to pick an option here, because I do think sometimes some people are better off dead. The problem is though, people can get blackmailed and blamed for a crime they didn't do.

I think there are places for it, but it should only be used if someone is absolutely certain that the person is guilty. Some people do get off way too easily though in our current society. 

EDIT: I don't believe in lethal injection, nobody should suffer like that. What I do believe in is the death penalty if it's a gun to the head. Then it's quick, and gone with no prolonged pain.
