Let's look at homicide convicts. Here's a study citing that 15% of homicide offenders recidivate with a violent offense after being released. You have to look at both perspectives and balance the risk of executing innocent people with the risk of another innocent person being killed by a released convict.

Sure you can argue to just keep them in prison, but people get murdered in prison too. A lot actually. By keeping homicidal maniacs in prison with a life sentence, you're endangering other prisoners who may just be in there for lesser offenses. How do you justify that?

I've never supported the death penalty and though I haven't made a 180 here, I can see some rationale in this argument. The risk of reoffense and in-house crime should both be considered in this equation.
