Death Penalty

In a word-no! The death penalty is a quick way out for people like Saddam Hussein! People like that don't deserve a quick way out! A life sentence in prison would be better, because these guys are guilty of genocide, murder, assassination, you name it! Also, in the case of innocent people, if we kill them, we can't take it back! If we sentence them to prison, then we can release them. You can't release a person from death. There was a boy in England who is the reason they don't have the death pe...

The death penalty is just

Dear Ladies and Gentleman, First of all, I would like to specifically define the topic. I do not believe that our death penalty system in the United States of America is just. Some people may have heard this before, and I will use it now: "Why do we kill people who kill people to show people that killing is wrong?" I belive that is true. Our death penalty system is designed to execute criminals who have murdered a person or maybe even more. Their crime is the act of killing people. So we...

You say that people who kill should have the death penalty so they won't have the chance to kill anymore. Although couldn't you just give them life in prison because they most likely wouldn't have the chance....

The U.S Federal Government should declare the death penalty as cruel and unusual punishment

simlerdebates
LaurenArmbruster

The Death can be defined as any government punishment that involves death to the victim. It does not have to be a certain kind of death. Deaths can be torturous. Such as tearing people apart or hanging people or burning people alive or shocking people people with electric chairs. or even poisoning individuals. So the death penalty is cruel and most certainly unusual in some cases and should declared inhumane...
