The death penalty should be abolished

Nicholas_Neal

I am pleased to be debating Clinton Wilcox. I challenge him to a debate on whether or not the death penalty should be abolished. I am going to make the case that it should based on two main reasons. 1. The Death Penalty has killed innocent people and will always carry that possibility. Since 1973 there have been 138 exonerations of people on death row. Now admittedly this is small number, however it still brings up an ethical question about the death penalty. "Is killing the guilty wor...

This House supports the death penalty!

The death penalty can also help provide closure for the victim's family and friends, who will no longer have to fear the return of this criminal into society. They will not have to worry about parole or the chance of escape, and will thus be able to achieve a greater degree of closure. Mary Heidcamp, a Chicago woman whose mother's killer faced the death penalty before the State Governor commuted the sentences to life in prison, stated 'we were looking forward to the death penalty. I'm just so d...

Is the Death Penalty an unjust punishment?

MathandScienceprodigy
JonathanDJ

I will be arguing in favor of the resolution that the Death Penalty is in fact an unjust punishment. Definition(s): The Death Penalty is the punishment of execution, administered to someone legally convicted of a capital crime. Contention(s): Bad, for many reasons: - Mistakes happen. Since 1973 in the U.S., 140 people have been released from death row with evidence of their innocence. These are ALL people who had been found...

The Death Penalty Should Be Used In Certain Cases

mongoose

Resolved: The death penalty should be used in certain cases There are many cases in which the death penalty is just and should be used. For example, if a man is proven that, without a doubt, he killed another man, that murderer should be killed. While it would be profitable to use the people in prison to do labor, the prisoner should at least be given the option between death and working in prison for the rest of his life.

We should abolish the death penalty in the US

kelsieisboss

The death penalty does more harm than good in today's society. At one time, it may have served a useful purpose, but it is no longer necessary and the small positives it may have are outweighed by the negatives. The death penalty is not able to be overturned, so any mistake in its application cannot be corrected because we do not have the power to resurrect people. Some propose that capricious application of the death penalty is flawed, but feel that the death penalty needs to be there for tr...

The death penalty is inhumane. No matter what crime someone is accused of committing, no person deserves to be punished by death. It is cruel and not morally correct....
