would you rather be giving a life sentence (and I mean live) or the death penalty?

I would pick death penalty anyday. The thought of spending the rest of my life in a cell going insane makes me think death is better.

Which is why I don't get why people think the death penalty is worse

We talking life sentence in solitary or in a normal prison?
And also is there a chance of getting out on parole?

Hmm on one hand, I would never have freedom again and would miss out on so much in life, but on the other hand, prisons seem to be like the Ritz so I'll take the life sentence.

If prisons were actually prisons and not life long teen summer camps, I'll take the death penalty.

You would only go insane if you spent the whole of your life sentence in a category A prison. Normally, you would work your way down until you're in a category D, or open prison - so I'd take the prison sentence.

Life sentence so I can plot my super escape plan. If I don't get one, I'll figure out a way to kill myself.

Lets say normal prison.

Also there is no chance of getting out.

This. They don't keep 60 year olds in solitary. You would probably be in open prison by then. Plus you never know no matter how final the sentence is this country at least has a very poor record of actually keeping people in prison forever. All kinds of crap you can pull, I'm old, I'm dying, my conviction is unsafe, etc.

Guantanamo Bay is a real prison. I'm mainly talking about prisons in the UK.
