Should death penalty be eliminated?

We hear about heinous crimes committed across the world, monsters preying on the weak and vulnerable. A life for a life seems justifiable when we see the plight of the victims who suffered at their hands. However, a percent of such crimes end up in wrongful convictions, which does call for us to step back and rethink the death penalty. Sunday Oct 10th is World Day against the Death Penalty. Do you feel the death penalty should be eliminated across the world?

The death penalty does little to deter crime - and wrongful convictions are inevitable.

It has no place in the 21st century.

On Sunday's World Day against the Death Penalty, show your support for ending executions. https://t.co/AtIhxoewu7 pic.twitter.com/TfvLzU0JLo
