What if they weren’t actually the perpetrators of the crime ?
I think that really happens. There is always that risk. But then we can relativize absolutely anything, what if the victims weren't victims, etc. etc. Imho, the country should agree to pay one's prison stay...it is our money. Just like we consent to gov subsidies to farms, education, health care. While I absolutely agree with my cash going to the victim's recovery, I have a problem agreeing with my cash going to the gang's therapy and expensive prison stay, often life time. Victims don't get their rent, food and care paid by me till the rest of their lives by government subsidies.

I'd still vote against capital punishment for sure but I'd have those thoughts in my head.

the old achilles heel with capital punishment though, is if you do find out you got it wrong, your in a bit of a pickle, because you can't bring them back to life.

If you dont have capital punishment and your victims turn out they made it up, you can put them in prison.

Of course. But when prison is a luxury, how to get out of that? Get society better so we need no prisons? Which country needs prisons the most and why?

Prisons are luxury treatment for absolutely any country, it compensates for corrupt/inefficient/overwhelmed legal systems. Ideally, low capacity prisons and no capital punishment which works here but India?

Go with castration. Chemical if necessary, physical for preference. Mind you as rape is not about sex... I'm glad they hung.
