Many things have been tried to cut down on people committing crime, but things continue to get worse. The Bible helps us to see why at Jeremiah 10:23- "I well know, O Jehovah, that man’s way does not belong to him.
It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step." So man needs direction, but who? There is only one solution to the problems that we face and that is God's kingdom. But what will it accomplish?

God’s Kingdom will replace all human governments and rule over the entire earth. (Daniel 2:44; Revelation 16:14) Once that happens, God’s Kingdom will . . .

Remove the wicked, whose selfishness harms us all. “As regards the wicked, they will be cut off from the very earth.”—Proverbs 2:22.
End all wars. “[God] is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth.”—Psalm 46:9.
Bring prosperity and security to the earth. “Everyone will live in peace among their own vineyards and fig trees, and no one will make them afraid.”—Micah 4:4, Good News Translation.
Make the earth into a paradise. “Thirsty deserts will be glad; barren lands will celebrate and blossom with flowers.”—Isaiah 35:1, Contemporary English Version.
Provide everyone with meaningful, enjoyable work. “The work of their own hands [God’s] chosen ones will use to the full. They will not toil for nothing.”—Isaiah 65:21-23.
Eliminate disease. “No resident will say: ‘I am sick.’”—Isaiah 33:24.
Set us free from the aging process. “Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.”—Job 33:25.
Bring the dead back to life. “All those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out.”—John 5:28, 29.

A website that helps us to see what we personally have to do to be apart of that kingdom is www.jw.org. I hope you enjoy it!!

no. it doesn't work statistically. plus, many innocents have been put to death for crimes they didn't even commit. Plus, with all of the trials, it's more expensive than just letting someone rot in prison, and the victims of the so-called criminals have to spend years in court remembering what happened and replaying it, instead of getting on with their lives. the death penalty sucks.
