TheWorldIsComplicated

I know it may sound bizarre but I really don't see any problem in eating the death row prisoners for meat. please don't judge me. I am a normal person, not a man eater, but to create a really out of the box topic, I have chosen this topic. I personally don't believe in this. But in debate I will use all my possibilities to win. I request you to keep this debate just a debate and nothing more than that....
