Some of the reasons that the death plenty should be reinstated are as follow: capital punishment removes the worst criminals from society; the crime rate decreases and enables the victim’s families and friends to take revenge for their loss. Another reason is that it is less expensive to execute criminals than to sentence them to life in prison. Also, the people forget about the people who have died for the killing that the criminals have done to them.
