This is a very useful source because it does not show emotions to this topic. Also, because it comes from a govenment website where everything has to be true. At first, I thought this would be in favor of death penalty, but actually it is all neutral. This article does not give only facts, it also gives  some other key words to find more information. It does not convince you to be on one side, it just helps you know what death penalties are about.

Texas executed Charlie Brooks for murdering an auto mechanic. He was excuted by lethal injection which he was injected with three different drugs. His prosecutor had tried to stop the execution but he was already injected. Just after seven minutes the doctor had declared Brooks dead. This was the first lethal injection in the United States, and since then there has been over 1,000 lethal injections. Most of the states that have the death penalty use the lethal injection as it's primary killing method. Doctors don't kill the patients they just pronounce them dead and have no responsibility with using lethal injections.

Charlie Brooks should have no been executed in my opinion. He didn't have a right to take someone else life but he should have gotten a life term instead. There are many other people who kill people in a more cruel way that deserve the death penalty. Also I think lethal injection is the best way to be executed because it is more effective and you can feel the drugs going into your body.

This souce is very useful because it gives you a lot of true information about death penalties. It gives you true stories about people who have been penalized. You will see cities and places where death penalty exists, also more links to find more information about death penalty. It is a 0% chance that this information is gullible because it comes from the death penalty information official website. 

Vincent Zamora's comment, April 10, 7:23 PM
This is what I was talking about in my discussion and I am grateful to have such a website to compare and reference to. This site has pros and cons labeled about the death penalty. the biggest of which is for pros is how this lets us feel justice has been surved for such crimes as murder and worse. The cons are exactly what I mentioned and that is who are we to take life and governments shouldn't have that kind of power.
