Death Penalty

savannah.greene241

I feel that the death penalty should be used in all states. Not for all crimes, but for the serious felonies. For instance, if someone were to murder, the death penalty should be the automatic punishment. An eye for an eye, if you take a life, then yours shall be taken as well....

Is Death Penalty Right??

meghapaulson
drewyman83

I personally believe that death penalty is wrong since the purpose of punishment to learn something from it, so if a kid grows up to murder someone for their wallet or just for fun, and they are in turn put to death, they are taught precisely nothing, because they are no longer alive to learn from it. We cannot rehabilitate a person by killing him or her. It is strange that a nation would denounce the practice of murder by committing the very same act. By doing so, we"re essentially championing...

Should the death penalty be illegal?

EliasL
savannah1006

I believe that the death penalty should be illegal in ALL states (and the world for that matter) due to the fact that there is no crime that should be punishable by death. For example, if there is a murder (i.e. Jodi Arias), and the defendant is found guilty, the government has no right to kill him/her due to the fact that this too is murder....

Should we keep the death penalty?

august55433

I believe that we should keep the death penalty. I feel that people who have committed crimes against humanity, don't deserve to live. They certainly are not worth the $168,00 dollars that we spend on them per year in prisons. That's why I think we should keep the death penalty and I expect a lively debate with my opponent! Thank you....

Bring back the death penalty for murderers in England.

My opening argument is simple: Murderers do not care about the human rights of their victims, so should not have any rights themselves. Article 3 of the universal declaration of human rights is "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person." (http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml#a2) The murderer denied their victim that, so why should they get it themselves? If the murderer won't respect other people's human rights they should forfeit their own human rights as well....
