My views on death penalty

Somebody asked me about this so I sent him an email (copied here).

The death penalty is wrong, one reason that I do not like is is the fallibility of our justice systems and second, one cannot violate fundamental rights even for people who violate fundamental rights. So, for example, you cannot remove the right to a fair trial from people who have removed the right of a fair trial (as with despots). Similarly, you cannot remove the right of life even for people who have removed life from others....
