Advocates of the death penalty recognize that no system is perfect and that applying the death penalty runs a small risk of executing someone who is innocent. Is this a price society should be willing to pay?

That is a matter of opinion, and depends upon how high the risk is of executing someone who is innocent.
That risk has been much too high, but is being lowered with DNA testing.
