Does religion support the use of the death penalty?

Personally, I don't know. But I don't like that there are people who think they have the right to decide when a human's life is taken, regardless of the crime. Personally, I'd just throw them in jail and let them think about what they've done for the rest of their life....

Hi, my name is Billy, and I will be arguing for the fact that the death penalty is ineffective, thus banning it. Good luck to my opponent. For more information, go to this link: http://deathpenalty.org/section.php?id=24 First of all, I know that most of you people reading this know the death penalty, but I'll explain it anyway in case there's some person that doesn't. Capital punishment, AKA the death penalty, execution, and a lot more names, is when a person is killed for their crimes. There...

Death penalty in U.S.A

USA is the only western country in the world who has death penalty. 38 states in USA have death penalty. You cannot get a death penalty for every crime you make. The only crime where you can get a death penalty is if you commit a premeditated murder. I think that death penalty should be illegal in all the states in America, one of the reasons is, I think it is moral wrong, to kill another human no mater what the person has done. The 10 commandments say that, ""You shall not murder"" I know tha...

The death penalty should be banned

Hello, I'm Billy. I will be debating against the death penalty, the most extreme form of crime punishment. I will show you that the death penalty should and ought to be abolished. Here are 2 opening reasons to oppose capital punishment. (There will be 10 reasons total, 2 in each of the 5 rounds.) 1. The occasional mistake is more risky than it's worth. Let's say you accuse someone of murder, and the jury votes him as guilty and the state government executes him, but later you find out he's in...

The man who killed Chris Kyle should be put in jail or given the death penalty.

I believe that Eddie Routh should be sentenced to life for the killing of Chris Kyle, (considerably the deadliest sniper in US history). I also believe that he was a converted Muslim, for reasons I will soon enclose. First off, many mainstream media claim that Routh had PTSD when he never served in ANY military combat. Routh served as a prison guard on a military base in IRAQ and didn't have any documented traumatic experiences. An article on Allenbwest.com states that he is a converted muslim....

Death penalty

I believe that the death penalty should be legal in every state. First, people that are crazy enough to commit murder shouldn't be in jail or on the streets. The criminal serving in jail will be their for life. Do you really want taxpayer's money going towards keeping some scum bag alive. I am completely for the death penalty. Good luck to you....

Should the death penalty be banned?

bnumerous
DopeFreshSaaan

Anyone for the death penalty is accepted, no questions. First of all, I'm against the death penalty. What if you wrongfully execute someone? You can't bring him or her back to life. Since 1976, 520 people have been executed in Texas alone. Is that really necessary while there is other forms of punishment available? So in my opinion as an American, The United States should give the death penalty the boot, like the UK....
