Inmates facing life in prison should be offered the choice of death penalty instead.
I also believe that the death penalty should be kept, not because life in prison is cruel and inhumane, but if the death penalty is enacted on properly then it becomes an effective deterrent.
However, in the USA, it is definitely NOT enacted properly. Biggest cause of death for inmates on death row is old age, while they await appeal after appeal on their cases.
It would be more of a detterrent if death penalty sentences were carried out the same way they were in say China, Russia, or Suadi Arabia.
