Well I brought Allegra to this site for this reason alone, so hopefully it'll be fun. I know there's loads of debates regarding the Death Penalty already, but I figured let's have another because there can never be enough of anything. So I'll pass this on to Allegra to explain to everyone why the death penalty is so amazing! Thanks ;)...

Is "Reclusion Perpetua" better that "Death Penalty"?

"Reclusion Perpetua" also known as "lifetime imprisonment" is better that death penalty. It's because everyone has the right to live even if one committed a sin.

Punishing violence with violence does not solve anything. It is extremely hypocritical....
