    1. The killing of anybody should have the death penalty as a sentence unless there are exceptional reasons for killing someone
      Today it seems there are more killings then ever , I do not believe age should be a bar to handing down a death penalty , today gangs use what we call children to murder , these so called children know the difference between right and wrong and because we use children age they believe they can commit murders and get away with it and call it man slaughter because they will get a lighter sentence, today we have so many ways to prove who killed whom so mistakes are not very common and the people under sentence of death can appeal.until we have these sentences of death murders will increase
