Why is capital punishment a necessity?

It is NOT a necessity. Studies have shown it does NOT lower the murder rate. All other civilized countries have banned it and now use only a sentence of life without parole or the equivalent. I believe it is a barbaric form of vengeance not justice and America is immoral for using it. The ten commandments say "thou shalt not kill." As our justice system is not perfect we should NEVER use it. Look at how many people have been freed from death row by DNA evidence. The death sentence if carried out is irreversible if new evidence of innocence is discovered. That is an unconscienable situation.
