For me the most troubling part is how often a jury gets the wrong verdict and convicts people who are not guilty.  For that reason alone, I do not believe we should have capital punishment. 

Paradoxically, I do think some crimes should be punished by executing the offender's entire family.  I think that would have a deterrent effect that mere execution does not.  I also think it should apply to the highest levels of white collar crime.  The Enron guys, for example.
