In, reality, only a small percentage of murderers are executed, meanwhile there are worse offenders in prison such as abductors, sex offenders, buglars, etc., only because they have few resources to defend themselves.

The idea of putting another human to death is hard to completely fathom.
However, I believe that the death penalty can be substituted by a sentence to life in prison. As observed, states in the United States that don't use the death penalty have a lower murder rate that that of the states that do (Death Penalty Does Not Deter Crimes, 2015).
For example, there was a forty six percent lower rate of murder in non death penalty states than in death penalty states ("Death Penalty Does Not Deter Crimes.", 2015).
