Pros
If we executed the people faster it would be cheaper than housing them for decades.

No chance ever of them hurting someone ever again.

It gives families closure.

Cons
Always a chance someone could be innocent.

According to Google:

Pros: They pay the price for violating someone's rights and they quit mooching off of the system. The cost for a state to obtain lethal injection drugs is $16,500.

Cons: Cases without the death penalty cost $740,000, while cases where the death penalty is sought cost $1.26 million. Maintaining each death row prisoner costs taxpayers $90,000 more per year than a prisoner in general population.
