The death penalty is a method of punishment in several countries. Is it justified to give someone such a penalty? Is it right?

The law against right or wrong is so difficult and different in several countries. In some its flexible and some are so strict that certain individuals have the power to get someone executed over their crimes. Society has a different take on many of these laws. What does the world say? Is it fair to kill as a person for their wrongs and isn't this saying they do not deserve a second chance to life? Who has the the right to kill?
