I would say.no. I'm sure some may be due to real....


impulsivity, out of control behavior, etc. but that doesn't excuse them. But I still am against the death penalty. And yes it costs a ton of money to keep them locked up for "life' or whatever sentence they get depending on the type of case, but keeping them on death row is much more costly than regular prison time. Of course, then there are the truly innocent ones that are on death row and dna can prove them innocent, but that takes a lot of lawyers and money to save them and many get executed when they never committed the murder at all.
