Are you for or against?

Yesterday afternoon I took an online lesson. This time the teacher who regularly teaches me game me the following article: Death Penalty

Are you for or against it?
I'm for it without any hesitation. Let me explain the reason why.

First, the existence of the penalty absolutely deters crimes. In fact, the crime rate in Japan is much lower than in other developed countries even though we can't say there's no crime here.
Second, there's a life sentence in Japan, but it's somewhat different from those of other countries. Those who are given a life sentence and serving time could get out of the prison under certain conditions. A minor, for example, killed several people in cold blood. The minor's face, name or whatever aren't unveiled because he or she is a minor. The judge pronounced a life sentence on the minor, but the minor could get out of the prison with mercy. It could be possible.
Third, some insist that no one violate human rights. Right then, how about victims' ones?

I can't deny, of course, that it's possible to take the risk of judging innocent people. As such we shouldn't judge lightly based on our emotions but conclude based on firm evidence.
In addition, the criminal law like a life sentence in Japan should be changed in accordance with the situation or days.

For the above reasons, I think that capital punishment shouldn't be abolished.
