Death Penalty

lilianhunter

You say imprisonment is the best route to take, but the death penalty is for INHUMANE crimes. I'm sorry but if it is unjustly to be put to death for murdering, raping, spying, terrorizing; how are those not inhumane as well? Also in prison, prisoners can access books, television, calling and visiting their loved ones, better health coverage than most unemployed Americans and three meals a day. Yes, what a punishment that is....

Is Death Penalty Fair?

KyrinAnderson
SnaxAttack

Our Government says that "killers should be killed" so does that mean that rapist should be raped and arsonist should have their houses burnt down? In my opinion this is not fair. Just because someone did something bad doesn't give the Government the right to just swoop right in and say "I'm gonna kill you and you"....

Using the Threat of the Death Penalty to Ensure a Guilty Plea is Ok

MyDinosaurHands
Ajab

One common argument for the continuing existence of the Death Penalty is the idea that lawyers can threaten to pursue the Death Penalty, and thus scare the defendant into pleading guilty to a life sentence (or other lesser sentence) instead. I believe that this violates the intentions of our law system, and this argument should not be considered in a Death Penalty debate. <...

The death penalty should be abolished

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...

Can you be pro life but for the death penalty

televin

I believe that abortion is the taking of a living beings life.....my position is that only God can take life. The death penalty is the taking of a living beings life......quite a few folks on death row have been released with the advent of DNA so it would seem untenable to be pro life with respect to abortion but not the death penalty...

The Death Penalty Should Be Used In Certain Cases

mongoose
mongeese

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.

The Death Penalty- Good thing (pro) or bad thing (con)

DebateGirl221
Anakin

Ok, so lately at school we've been covering capital punishment (the death penalty), but we haven't really gone into a debate whether it is a good thing or not. So, I'd like to discuss this topic before I take part in a class debate, so that way I will be ready. Rules: No trolling or foul language. Round 1- Acceptance only Rounds 2/3- The battle begins. I would like to take this opportunity to wish my opponent good luck :)...
