Like I said, I believe the death penalty should not be under the 8th amendment because the death penalty is cruel as some innocent people get executed. Some go through hours of pain. Some get tortured and put in prison instead. This is cruel and unusual punishment.

And what about isolation? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ronald-a-lindsay/the-death-penalty-is-barb b7215568.html And this man was sent to non-lehal jolts and put in prison.. Not unusual or cruel? http://law2.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/conlaw/cruelunusual.html

Your source supports our point as well. The first point they make states our side "It teaches the condemned nothing". As well as "It is hypocritical" and "It is always cruel"

Has it really changed anything? "Death is not only an unusually severe punishment, unusual in its pain, in its finality, and in its enormity, but it serves no penal purpose more effectively than a less severe punishment…” William J. Brennan http://deathpenalty.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=1715

I believe the death penalty should not be under the 8th amendment because the death penalty is cruel as some innocent people get executed. 151 people have been released from the death row. It is worse as it can be their life taken away rather than spending years in prison.
