#1 Yeah, drug gang enforcers. After a while, one of them will get creative and have the idea of going after someone other than drug dealers. Then, you get the society-busting crimes like kidnapping, police murders, and so on. It won't matter how many of them are arrested because more will just step up from the ranks. Once the culture gets established, and people get used to doing this, it's very difficult to go back to the previous time.

It's not strictly culture. Countries with serious gang problems (i.e. frequent cop-killings) tend to have no death penalty. For instance, Colombia, El Salvador and Mexico don't have capital punishment. With the right amount of assets, you can continue running your gang from prison, and even have access to conjugal visits - can't do it from Hell (that I know of).

#3 It's been just over two years since Arizona executed anyone. It's because we're in the 9th Circuit. Texas has sent 45 or so to Hell in that time.
