Are you against it or are you for it PROS and CONS.Let me see what you guys think.I think I'm For it. Because if someone killed a family member of yours would you want the other person to die for it. But some people don't care if they don't know them. So what are some of your reasons?...

Death Penalty

There are many reasons why we should abolish the death penalty. It is expensive, cruel, flawed, and not doing anyone any favors. Skeptical? Maybe the following facts will change your mind! 1. It's expensive. As of April 30th, 2013, the US National Debt is over 16 trillion dollars. We can't afford to add to this tremendous amount! In California ALONE, over $4 BILLION dollars were spent on capital punishment ITSELF since 1978. And $184 million has been additionally spent EVERY YEAR in Californi...

The death penalty should be legal in Texas.

The death penalty is a form of punishment in which the person who commited a certain heinous crime is put to death. Currently, Texas is for the death penalty. Huntsville, Texas is the only prison, at this time, that actually puts the inmates to death. The death penalty needs to remain legal in Texas....

Death Penalty

This is my first debate here, so hopefully my opponent will go easy on me. ;) The death penalty, also known as capital punishment, has been a punishment for crime for millennia. Over the years, its use has been expanded and retracted. Perhaps the first polity to abolish the death penalty was the religion of Judaism, which, as long as 2000 years ago, created dozens of obstacles to make the punishment impossible to apply, for all intents and purposes. It was determined that only God had the rig...

Back to the basics/ the death penalty should be harsher and used more often

I personally believe that America has gone soft. We believe that more humane ways to carry out the death penalty is better. NO WAY!!! I think that if we go back to the basics, and start with hanging, electric chair, and the firing squad. The scarier the punishment, i believe will scare criminals into not doing such horrendous acts. I also think that the death penalty should be sentenced much more often. I am not demented just sensible. I hope you understand my way of viewing it....

Cumwoo, I challenge you to a debate! (Friendly banter between personal friends) You will be debating that the death penalty should be done away with, and I will be debating that it shouldn't be done away with. Let's set some rules and definitions, shall we? Definitions Death Penalty - "the sentence of execution for murder and some other capital crimes (serious crimes)" (1)<...

In this debate, I will address several main aspects of capital punishment (or death penalty; terms may be used interchangeably) in the United States. Before I begin, I would like to note that I am brand new to this site and I am excited to begin debating and put my opinions out there. So, be aware that I am certainly not the most experienced one here.Now, first of all, I would lie to provide a definition.Death Penalty - Execution of an offender sentenced to dea...

Death Penalty

I am against capital punishment, regardless of the logical, economical, or practical arguments that support it. After countless debates I've concluded that, actually, capital punishment is wholly unnecessary. My primary concern is that once life is ended the death cannot be reversed, thus the issue of miscarriages of justice is evoked. I also feel that the government should not be involved in the killing of its citizens, regardless of the crime they have committed - two wrongs do not make a righ...
