Capital punishment in Utah - level 1
Utah is an American state. It is in the Southwest. Capital punishment is legal there.
Lethal injections are used in Utah. However, there are not enough of them. Also, the injections do not always kill fast. The prisoner can feel pain. This is a problem. Capital punishment must be fast. The prisoner must not feel pain.
Some people think that it is better to shoot prisoners. They say that it is fast. Some people like this idea. Some people do not.
Difficult words: capital punishment (killing a prisoner because he did something very bad), legal (something legal can be done), lethal injection (drugs which kill you).
