Death Penalty

We reserve the death penalty in the United States for the most heinous murders and the most brutal and conscienceless murderers. This is not, as some critics argue, a kind of state-run lottery that randomly chooses an unlucky few for the ultimate penalty from among all those convicted of murder. Rather, the capital punishment system is a filter that selects the worst of the worst... Put another way, to sentence killers like those described above to less than death would fail to do justice bec...

The death penalty for torturers.

KJVPrewrather

Torture is the worst thing you can do to someone, and while, I'm not usually for the death penalty, I think the government should execute all proven torturers with nitris oxide, or secanal, posthaste. I was tortured, and I would rather die than be tortured again. This as always must be done through due process and the rule of law....

Death Penalty

Full resolution: The death penalty is an ideal form of punishment for particular criminal cases. My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

The Death Penalty

I belive in the death penalty for many reasons but here are the big ones for me: 1. Death penalty costs the government less as opposed to life imprisonment without parole. Proponents say despite expenses incurred by the government from imposing capital punishment, death penalty is still cheaper compared to the costs of life without parole. Although there is no contention that the cost of the former is high, life imprisonment is accumulatively higher given the expenses for food, health care a...

Death penalty should be imposed as law in the Philippine government.

Jomer
PixelatedBearz

Death penalty should not be imposed as law specially in the Philippine context. as Human being we need to consider the right of the accused. though he had committed grave sin he had still the chance to chance into a new life. because even how sinful the person was. Still he had this innate nature of being good and this could not be separated from him. All we have to do is to give him the chance to live a new life and the government should provide guidance and counseling for the accused to be g...

Select winner. 2k. I am going to literally copy and paste Roy's stuff cause it fits well. "The death penalty, i.e. capital punishment, is "execution of an offender sentenced to death after conviction by a court of law of a criminal offense." [1. http://www.merriam-webster.com...] Currently 32 states and the Federal government have a death penalty. [2. http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org...]. ... In this debate I will argue that a death penalty should be maintained as part of the U.S...
