Turkey isn't necessarily asking the question of "Should we implement the Death Penalty for the good of us?" Instead its a poor assumption, "They (U.S., Russia, China) have the death penalty, so we should do it too.

If the U.S. thought it was a sure thing, they would have had Federal Law implentation, not up to the state.

Also, being able to judge who should and shouldn't live definitely is not a proper way to try and bribe votes in the next election. It is sick and cruel.
