I've got one accent speaking Spanish, and in English I have found surprisingly easy to fake a slowly spoken British accent.
However, I was raised all my life in Puerto Rico and almost all people who don't know me think by the accent that I am from the S. American continent, or from Spain!
Back to the death penalty.
I have seen that many people argue more that he does not deserve to live. But, quite frankly I do not find that line of thinking too far from the thoughts that some murders have (the ones with a motive).
The Justice System is not perfect, and innocent people have been found guilty many times. Just think of all the people in the US who have been taken out of death row, because they turned out to be innocent. Now think, of how many people have been executed, being innocent. That is a thought one should keep in mind before saying he favors the death penalty.
Second, from what I've heard, due to the costly appeals process, more money is spent in having someone in death row, than in life without parole.
Most of you people will have gone through the bad experience of losing a loved one. It takes a bit of philosophy, but it isn't hard to agree, that when such happens the people who truly suffer, isn't the dead person, but the close family and friends. When you come to think of it, would not end up that the people you end punishing even more than the murderer is the family? People like parents, brothers, sons, etc. You get the point.
Some people say that life in prison is too merciful, for certain crimes. Is it? Or wouldn't it be even more merciful, to give him a needle shot and within ten seconds the world goes black? Or to have him suffer through the solitary confinement, all his life, day, by day, everyday. Of course, if the guy is going to hell it isn't the easy way out, but we don't know what happens after death, so we cannot assume that.
When someone ticks you off, we all have heard the advice of "don't answer back to him in the same way, as you lower yourself to his level". Wouldn't the death penalty be the same? Lowering oneself to the same level as the felon?
