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

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...

Capital Punishment (death penalty) should be legal in all states

Do_I_Need_A_Username

Capital punishment, also known as the death penalty, should be legal in all states. Currently, it is only legal in 32 states. Sometimes, the ultimate crime deserves the ultimate punishment. An eye for an eye. Crimes such as, premeditated murder, murder of children, rape of children, etc. These crimes are terrible, and the perpetrator deserves no mercy, as the perpetrator was showing no mercy to his/her victims. Keeping a convicted murder in prison for life can use various resources. For...

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...

The death penalty should be banned

Hello, I'm Billy. I will be debating against the death penalty, the most extreme form of crime punishment. I will show you that the death penalty should and ought to be abolished. Here are 2 opening reasons to oppose capital punishment. (There will be 10 reasons total, 2 in each of the 5 rounds.) 1. The occasional mistake is more risky than it's worth. Let's say you accuse someone of murder, and the jury votes him as guilty and the state government executes him, but later you find out he's in...

Death penalty in U.S.A

Qubnigwa

USA is the only western country in the world who has death penalty. 38 states in USA have death penalty. You cannot get a death penalty for every crime you make. The only crime where you can get a death penalty is if you commit a premeditated murder. I think that death penalty should be illegal in all the states in America, one of the reasons is, I think it is moral wrong, to kill another human no mater what the person has done. The 10 commandments say that, ""You shall not murder"" I know tha...

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

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....
