Death penalty? is it the best option?

In a society where violence in several aspects has elevated in the last decade or so, extremely crowded prisons where authority has their hands full with whatever is going on out on the streets, seems awfully different than how it looked some thirty years ago. We know that criminal minds start from the smallest groups in society, which is family, depending how you are raised, where, who raised you, who influenced you, etc. Elections are coming next month, one of the political parties has come up with the controversial proposition of the death penalty to kidnappers, murderers, rapists. Depending on several points of views, might be the thing to do following some other countries' example, but then the Human Rights Commission comes in all the people's defense. What's your thought on it?

I only believe in it for those who have commited multiple murders. I don't see why someone who has knowingly and willingly and premeditated more than one murder does not have the right to live when they have taken other's lives. The reason i don't say for those who have commited one murder is because they are less likely to be premediated murders and may have been crimes of passion or the killing of someone who has been creul, like in the case of an abused wife killing her abuser. I find that typically if you have killed more than one person you fully intended to do that, and I especially think serial killers have no right to live, and make tax payers pay for the meals, and medical.
