"the US because they at least pretend towards being a decently civilised and just society, unlike other places where very minor things get you very long jail time"

Like the US 3 strikes law where you can be sentenced to indefinite incarceration for petty theft?

You are right though - deterrents don't work. Once the state starts its own official murder system (something we have managed to avoid in the UK despite the baying mob from the Mail et al) then it is no better than any criminal, even assuming the "right" person was executed in the first place.
