" If I kill and I just go to prison, I am satisfied. I still have a life. I am supplied with everything I need, my family can visit me in prison. So why not?

People need to be punished according to how they committed the crime thus we must keep in mind 3 things: all guilty people deserve to be punished; only guilty people deserve to be punished; guilty people deserve to be punished in proportion to the severity of their crime
There are many victims of a single murder. The criminal gets caught, tried, and convicted, and it is understood that the punishment will be severe. But the person he has killed no longer has a part to play in this. Unfortunately, the murderer has deprived his family and friends of a loved one. It may not end with the murderer’s execution, but the execution does engender a feeling of relief at no longer having to think about the ordeal—a feeling which often fails to arise while the murderer still lives on. A system in place for the purpose of granting justice cannot do so for the surviving victims, unless the murderer himself is put to death.
The death penalty should exist, only in cases of serious insanity should it be questionable. Every state should have a a good team of psychologist to measure the level of insanity of a person and as to whether they have lucid intervals, should they commit a murder during a lucid interval they should be punished by death.
