I would like pro to argue first—I dunno, I like that setup better—and the BOP on PRO. I hold that, on balance in the US, I am for the status quo. And I am con, and pro usually gets the burden. [--Definitions--] Death Penalty -- "Capital punishment or the death penalty is a legal process whereby a person is put to death by the state as a punishment for [murder]."[1] Abolished -- Formally put to an end—in this case legally.

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...

Death Penalty

HelloSweetie

I don't believe that serious criminals should be sentenced to death. Horrible crimes, like murder or rape, don't deserve a quick exit. The criminals will die at some point anyway, so why not keep them in jail until their deaths? It's worse....
