There should be death penalty for murderers.

Lately I have seen a lot of people thinking that the death penalty is a good idea for murders. I am opposed to this. I ask that round one is accepting and maybe a starting line or two. Please can you cite any used sources (or give credit to them at the end of your argument), if any are used, besides to check up on prior knowledge. Thanks, and good luck....

Select winner. 2k. I am going to literally copy and paste Roy's stuff cause it fits well. "The death penalty, i.e. capital punishment, is "execution of an offender sentenced to death after conviction by a court of law of a criminal offense." [1. http://www.merriam-webster.com...] Currently 32 states and the Federal government have a death penalty. [2. http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org...]. ... In this debate I will argue that a death penalty should be maintained as part of the U.S...

Should Dzhokhar Tsarnaev face a death penalty from the Boston Marathon bombings?

I think Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should face the death penalty. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should because he hurt and killed more than dozens of innocent people. He could've also been working along side Isis. He did this because he didn't care about what people thought. Minutes after the bombing, him and his brother walked into a market like they didn't care or know what just happened. He caused the death of an eight year old boy. He caused a runner losing both of their legs and ending up with prosthetics. It i...

The Death Penalty

The Death penalty should be abolished for the following reasons - The risk of killing the innocent - It violates human rights - Its morally wrong, taking someone's life is wrong no matter what - Most murderers aren't afraid of death, they'll never suffer remorse, which is actually helping them - It completely ignores alternatives, for example Jail life without parole - The so called "painless injection method" is getting very costly - The mentally ill are executed, rather then getting the...

Well, here it is. First round is acceptance. I haven't specified any jurisdiction, so please don't bring in the U.S. Constitution or laws specific to any one country. If you must make legal arguments, then please make them general, so that they may be applied to *most* jurisdictions. All the best. :)...
