"I don't think you should support the death penalty to seek revenge. I don't think that's right. I think the reason to support the death penalty is because it saves other people's lives." George Walker Bush. The death penalty should be preserved because it prevents future crimes, eliminating the death penalty would be counterproductive, and the death penalty benefits the economy. Now, to my first point, it deters would-be criminals to commit felonies. "The Washington Post" states, "Recent st...

We should abolish the death penalty in California.

Too high of cost: California has spent over $4 billion dollars on the death penalty since the 1978 reinstatement, or rather $308 million spent on each of the 13 inmates executed since that time. If we were to imprison these 13 people since they were born and lived to be 100, that would still be cheaper than if we were to execute one person in California. If we negate this bill, we are not only putting ourselves in more debt, but wasting funds that could be put into improving prison i...

The death penalty is a vital part of American justice. Without it, more people would commit horrific crimes because they no longer fear death. One would obviously prefer a life, no matter how horrid, compared to death....

Rules: I'll be taking the position of the Con, you will take the position of the Pro. We are both Christians so quoting of the Bible is a legitimate defense of our beliefs, but also please include non-religious reasons for your beliefs as well. Round 1 is for acceptance, Round 2 is for arguments, Round 3 is for rebuttals. Thank you for considering participating in this debate....

Death penalty

I am against death penalty. It is like going back to the past, because most of the countries alredy abolish it. Why? Because life is a basic right, not even the government can violate that right, it doesn't matter if the crime is very high. Death penalty avoid the opportunity for criminals to reflect. And if you say that criminals will not change, how do you know that? The government should try to search spirit and psicologist help. I am in favour that maybe people will go out of the jail, but t...
