Death penalty, also known as capital punishment is a legal process where the state sends a death row inmate to execution as a punishment for a grave offense committed. Even the bible advocates death for murder and other crimes like kidnapping and witchcraft.   In some countries, it is still practiced. In the U.S. it has been abolished in some states and continued in others.

There are strong opinions shared by both pro-death and anti-death supporters. When the word death penalty is used,  it makes yelling and screaming from both sides of extremist.  


Death penalty proponents say despite expenses incurred by the government from imposing capital punishment, death penalty is still cheaper compared to the costs of life without parole. Depending on which state you check, the cost runs from $35,000 to $60,000 per year.  This is in addition to the many thousands of dollars spent on appeals and re-trials.  Others say that, in general, the government spends more taxpayers’ money in handling cases of death row inmates. This is due to the length and complexity of trials, the number or defenders to be hired and the overall process. .

It deters would-be criminals to commit felonies. According to a study conducted in the late 1960’s, there was a 7% crime rate increase on the years when this law was abolished. On the other hand, fewer crimes were committed with the increase in number of inmates in the death row who were executed each year.


Death penalty is a just punishment for crimes committed against the rights to life, freedom and safety of victims. Others say the death penalty is nothng more than a form of revenge.





The solution is to use carbon-monoxide therapy.

Carbon monoxide is administered until the subject is near death.

At this point all memory is completely erased. There is no memory of anything, speech, how to walk, toilet training, etc.

The subject will require intense supervision to learn these things over again, including how to read and write and the fundaments of math and social mores.  His true identity will never be revealed to him.

This will take about two or three years, at a cost of several hundred thousand dollars a year for the close, highly trained supervision. This cost is less than the cost of keeping someone in prison for life.

The benefits are: you have not killed anyone, you have a good, taxpaying citizen back on the street, your prisons are not crowded.
