    Death penalties cut reoffending rates by as much as 99%.

    (statistics have a 1% margin for error).

    Death penalties are cheaper than keeping someone in jail for life, or keeping them on medication or whatever.

    Arguably a person could be considered better off dead than being locked up in some schitt hole for the rest of their days. So more humane, depending on execution methods and prisoner treatment.

    This isn't actually true. In the US we've seen that the lengthy litigation involved makes the death penalty more expensive for the state than life imprisonment.

    This one isn't true. Death row is pretty expensive to run compared to normal prisons. Must be worse and cost loads when a fat dude gets his final meal.

    EDIT: Oops someone already got there.
