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. :)...

The death penalty must be abolished.

There is no justification for allowing the death penalty to continue if innocent lives are being lost. According to a recent study, if all death-sentenced defendants remained under sentence of death indefinitely at least 4.1% would be exonerated(1). As a result, we must pause to consider how many innocent lives have been mercilessly taken by the death penalty and those who instigate it. How can we justify such senseless killing and mask it as some twisted form of justice? With all the technology...

The death penalty SHOULD be legalised, Because innocent people lose their lives for the benefit of others, so why not? If people are strong enough to kill, etc. Then they shouldn't be too surprised for it to happen to them, In society today, too many people get away with crude things, and It's time something Is done about it. But If It was brought back, the people In charge of this should have to be extra careful that they catch the right person....

Should Capital Punishment/Death Penalty be legal?

AlternativeDavid

This argument will be about whether or not the death penalty [1] should be legal, and my thesis will be: 'the death penalty should be legal.' My opponent's thesis will be: 'the death penalty should not be legal.' The burden of proof will be an equal amount between me and my opponent. Any information gained from internet research needs a link (and if you use an expert's [2] opinion, you need the expert's name as well as the link you found the information from), and any research from books needs t...
