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...

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 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.

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

shadestalker

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....
