While i agree to an extent i think the problem here is the "justice system". The way lawyers argue insanity issues etc makes this hard to achieve. While i firmly believe that someone who takes a life deliberately should have theirs taken i think it would be hard to achieve.
I also think that most people who murder do so with the thought of not being caught anyway so it may not deter them.
