If you don't want me to talk about EDUCATION, then don't ask such questions. You don't want to h ...

Education needs time and money, and failed even in rich region like USA and Taiwan.

So now :

Can you elaborate how a society stops a ruthless killer?

Just say you have no idea "HOW" because your mouth is bigger than your butt.

Whose blood are you going to feed your morality with? Can't wait another kid to be beheaded, can you?

Arguments For And Against The Death Penalty

Anti death penalty people have 3 reasoning.

One, death penalty can't bring back the lives of victims.
Answer : death penalty is to stop the future crimes, like fine stops people from speeding. Therefore, what the families think or human right fundamentalists think doesn't matter, it is how criminals react that matters.

Two, death penalty in USA didn't stop crime.
Answer : To consider USA has death penalty is like claiming you have a car though it breaks down every 5-10 kilometers. You can almost be sure that the car will not go anywhere.

Three, Some countries have low crime rates though without death penalty.
Answer : to my knowledge, such countries are rich with good welfare. Well, one of the biggest reasons for crime is for money.

Death Penalty Deters Murders, Studies Say  By SEAN ALFANO AP June 11, 2007, 7:24 AM

What gets little notice, however, is a series of academic studies over the last half-dozen years that claim to settle a once hotly debated argument — whether the death penalty acts as a deterrent to murder. The analyses say yes. They count between three and 18 lives that would be saved by the execution of each convicted killer.

...............

"Science does really draw a conclusion. It did. There is no question about it," said Naci Mocan, an economics professor at the University of Colorado at Denver. "The conclusion is there is a deterrent effect."

A 2003 study he co-authored, and a 2006 study that re-examined the data, found that each execution results in five fewer homicides, and commuting a death sentence means five more homicides. "The results are robust, they don't really go away," he said. "I oppose the death penalty. But my results show that the death penalty (deters) — what am I going to do, hide them?"

Statistical studies like his are among a dozen papers since 2001 that capital punishment has deterrent effects. They all explore the same basic theory — if the cost of something (be it the purchase of an apple or the act of killing someone) becomes too high, people will change their behavior (forego apples or shy away from murder).
.................
Speeding up executions would strengthen the deterrent effect. For every 2.75 years cut from time spent on death row, one murder would be prevented, according to a 2004 study by an Emory University professor.
