Okay, while I understand that people feel strongly about killing those who commit serious crimes such as murder, capital punishment simply is not the right answer. I don't mean that the person who murdered or committed whatever act they did deserves to rot in prison or be tortured--I mean that while yes, some probably should not be allowed to continue living, it has been proven many times that it actually costs MORE to have Capital Punishment carried out than it would to have the person put in prison for life without chance of parole. It makes more economical sense to not carry out Capital Punishment, and since it is rarely sought out and carried through anyway, it isn't going to serve as an example or deter others from committing these very same acts.
